Coffee 1-7-17

PostBy: Freddy On: Sat. Jan. 07, 2017 6:13 am

Hey Gang! Here we are, a week into 2017 and....and.... the coffee is still good! Come on in, find a seat we'll serve up some of the darndest good coffee there is to be had. Fine caffeine, French toast, Fresh strawberries, and Fine folk. Ahhhhh, doesn't get better than that.

While certain places are bracing for a whopper of a winter storm, here it's calm & cold. The Axeman Anderson 130 is happily spawning blue dancing ladies & doing a corker of a job keeping home & garage warm. It's just about zero outside right now, but nice & comfy in here. I hope you are all nice & warm too.

Stay safe and forward we go!
Freddy

The cats woke me up at 4:00 AM for their morning feeding, as they do every morning. On coffee #2. Still haven't had breakfast yet. Today is planned to be an all-grain beer brewing day, but the cold may change the plans, as the garage/brewery is mighty cold. A Vienna lager along the general lines of Great Lakes Brewing's 'Eliot Ness' is the plan.

Morning everyone,

It is a balmy -5.3 F this a.m. I have family coming today so no work in the shop. The 507's are keeping the house at a nice 76 F and the shop at 65 F. We are flooded with people looking to ride snowmobile. It is a good time to stay off of the trails. Freddy, thanks for the Java as always it was good. Have a safe and productive weekend everyone.

Good morning everyone. I actually got a head start on the coffee yesterday...I was home with my youngest son and decided it was a great opportunity to have some afternoon coffee. Well, when it was about half brewed the coffee pot started dripping water on the counter. It has dripped one or two drops before, but nothing like this. All was not lost, apparently it is a common problem on this model BUNN coffee maker, and I found a youtube video detailing the repair. 20 minutes later it was back in action with no leaks.

It is right about 0 here, depending where you look. My garage is probably about 15, and I am glad I don't have to brew beer in it today! Larry, is your garage attached to the house? Mine is, and if I want to warm it up I just open the basement door ahead of time.

Good Morning, At 24* we are much higher on the thermometer than you guys this morning....don't get jealous!! :P We might get enough snow try out the new tire chains on the 430 loader pushing a wee bit o' the white stuff. I got the tractor last spring and haven't had any snow to try it out on yet to see if the 2wd is enough to handle our mostly flat area.

Have to do some errands this morning then I will be meeting some family at Shady Maple in Lancaster to celebrate my Dad's 91st birthday. I'm skipping a big breakfast and just having coffee and a donut so I will be in "empty" mode when I get to the Shady Maple buffet!! Besides it being real good food I gotta get my $$ worth ya know!

Rob - Good timing on the coffee maker drip since you were home to fix it!

Have a great day.

My garage is attached, and it is heated to 40-45 degrees. But the turkey deep fryer type burner means that a garage bay door will need to be left open at least a bit (or a bunch), and I'll have CO detectors in the garage. The garage is at lager fermenting temperature though.

Good morning folks the coffee, French toast and fresh Strawberries :) . We had the Memorial service for my dad on Wednesday and all went well, Euclid sent 2 cars with officers and the Army sent Honer Guards, the turnout was much better then expected due to the weather( snow and cold) and the day It was on.
My wife lost another Uncle to cancer on Dec 29 so Wednesday evening we went to his calling Hrs and the funeral on Thursday :( I will be happy when this overwhelming week ends.
Ok friends I'm keeping It short today ;) Take care, have fun, and enjoy.

Seems like most of Us are in the grip of a Good Winter Blow ! Even that Chubby Guy,ONEDOLLAR,is in the grips of it showing 0* in Oklahoma City ! Blizzard Warnings,Ice-Freezing Rain Warnings and just General Snow Warnings for the South and East Coast,let alone the cold in the Gulf States,really has me shook up about Globull Warming in general ! :bang: Aside from all the weather mularkey,it's been a cold but calm time in the N.E.Ohio area. Barry,nice job on getting Dad's Services on the money with the Honor Guard and All. Remember,according to 'Ol Uncle Ham,"It 'aint what We leave behind,It's WHO We leave behind that really counts"........ You and Your's have done well for Your Father....Well Done,My Friend......Same to Rick386 !..... :angel:

That may just be a start to my time at Freddy's Coffeehouse this weekend,but I'm sure that I'll trudge through the snow for more Java ! Nice Job,Freddy ! Stay Warm,Gang !! :flex: :up:

And a 'nother morning all. Thanks for opening the door this morning Fred. I can smell the sulfur mixing with the java now. Seems everyones all ready to chat about the winter comings. :discuss:
Here in Souther NE, it's a balmy 22° OATS, and they're not predicting much of the white trash @ our end. But the temps still justify the existence of the G111, so we're warm in here. Hope everyones has a productive weekend.

Good morning my coal burning comrades.

Not much going on here. Barry sounds like a nice service for your dad. One of the finest things the military does to honor their fellow soldiers is their honor guard. And them boys/gals take so much pride in doing it the best that they can.

Yeah the damn snow storm down in MD made us cancel our last hunting trip to Salisbury. :mad2: :taz: We made the call yesterday morning after watching the weather forecasts. Heavy snow and blowing winds will cause Bambi and his friends to hunker down until the weather settles so we felt that there was no sense to drive 3 hours to sit and watch snowflakes fall. Plus having to deal with those who should not be on the roads trying to slip and slide their way down the highway. Oh well we still have a few more weeks of bow hunting here in PA to get 1 or 2 more.

Now I'm turning on the fans and trying to push it north so we have plenty of snow for the annual trip to Moosehead the end of February.
F-Fred and Snowman, my niece is up in your neck of the woods right now enjoying riding around Tug Hill. They have been there for a few days already.

I guess I had better get something done in the shop today. Enjoy the rest of the day.
