After living in Italy for some time, my wife bought a cappuccino / espresso machine that I wish was that cheap. Way better than standard black coffee though, so I can't complain too much.


I’m in Venice now.. I had forgotten how good italian coffee is..




A good cup of coffee can make all the difference in the world.

And, for the quality of this. It really does not get much better unless you get a real professional machine that would be more than a Kilo or three of silver. Nespresso has them as well. You can spend as much as $2k and more. This really is a deal. I'm picking up mine in a few hours and I can't wait.

All though I am more excited about my next box from David. If I had to choose between the two.... Hmm..


Kinda funny.. the reason we are in Italy is to source a machine to make the pods for the nespresso for my wife’s company...
Outstanding!

I think my "while I ~love~ good coffee" has just set a personal record for being re-quoted. Perhaps I should stop talking about politics, the economy and the demise of civilization and blog about coffee?

It all started with the Original Trader Joe's in Santa Ana, CA located between our rented student's house and what was then called Santa Ana Community College . . .

This is a cup I can get behind!

And coffee is so much better than politics.

Diggin. We NEED to talk.

Didn’t want to start a new thread, but wondering if anyone else does any star gazing? I just got into it and really don’t know much about the equipment. Right now all I have is basically a cheap Walmart telescope(a gift that kind of triggered the fun). Does anyone know of a cheap set up for the average guy? I know some are using some sort of Nikon camera’s and getting some great shots, but that is outside my budget for right now. Looking for something for a beginner with a small budget($500-$600 at the absolute highest, lower would be better). Any ideas or experiences for the beginner? Or should I keep going with my Walmart telescope? I feel like I can do and see better, just I’m budget strapped.

Absolutely gorgeous - especially when not made up

A touch to muscle-y - naaa, I'm good with what she's got

A hair to lean - yea, when the ribs are sticking out she's to lean. But just a hair. Won't take much cooking at all to smooth those rumble strips out.

UPS just dropped off 3 boxes. The driver told me we no longer have to sign, she just asked my name and typed in the first letter, the system then auto filled my name, she clicked yes and was on her way. I guess signature confirmation is now going to be an upcharge...you know it's coming

I was wondering why my UPS guy has been asking for my last name. He does something with his machine while walking back to his truck and hauls a$$. They have been delivering here for 25 yrs and know who i am, Im always the last guy on their route for the day. He told me bc i live too far in the swamp :roll: . The funny thing is he asks me my name after he hands me the package and starts walking back to his truck, lol

Ok, he's a moron for parking like that, no matter what time it was. There was also no reason to escalate it to where it ended up at, that's just stupid. Did they really need 5 or 6 cars to come to that scene? That is intimidation if I've ever seen it. This entire thing is ridiculous beyond words...it really is.

Why would MPD post that video? So embarassing!!!

That much force and taxpayer resources for a parking violation? Man, they really take their parking enforcement seriously there :roll:

On the bright side, MPD is going to become legendary for their badazz meter-maids :lol:
