  1. "They say that in the Army, the coffee is mighty fine, Looks like muddy water, and tastes like turpentine..."
  2. “Cry ‘God for Harry, England and Saint George!’”
  3. I went the single cup route. Good for a single cup, and less storage space taken You foam for the cappuccino. Good stuff, either way, but I won't judge. I would enjoy a larger espresso maker like the one you posted. Yes, you do. It really isn't that much more work, and worth the effort. Definitely go the burr route, though. Much more consistent grind. I stop short of being like a doctor I served with in the Guard who roasted his own beans. That's too much even for me.
  4. Extremely cool! A belated Happy Birthday to you!
  5. Get another french press, a pour over maker, an electric espresso and cappuccino maker, a stove top espresso maker and a burr grinder, and you'll be set! Although you do have me on the speckleware coffee pot!
  6. Aren’t you familiar with the phrase “two is one and one is none?” When it comes to coffee, redundancy is vital.
  7. An older picture of AB at a show, and a much newer one of her current horse, with her in the background, my youngest daughter holding the lead.
  8. If you sent out a distress signal at sea and this responded? https://www.gotheborg.se/en/news/rescue-of-sailing-boat/
  9. They and you will be in my thoughts and meditations.
  10. ? and The Mysterians The Kings (Canadian Band) The McCoys The Kingsmen
  11. If you go on YouTube much, search for a channel called "the charismatic voice." It's an award winning professional opera singer and voice teacher who does reaction / analysis videos of different rock acts. She has done several videos featuring Heart, and if she's to be believed, yeah, Ann Wilson is pretty good. (understatement)
  12. Don’t forget Invaders were also used in Vietnam. https://www.nationalmuseum.af.mil/Visit/Museum-Exhibits/Fact-Sheets/Display/Article/196070/douglas-b-26k-a-26-counter-invader/
  13. Since you seem to not know the story of “Old 666” and Zeamer’s Eager Beavers, let me tell you about them. Grab a beverage and enjoy: https://www.nationalmuseum.af.mil/Visit/Museum-Exhibits/Fact-Sheets/Display/Article/196216/zeamer-and-the-eager-beavers/ There are a couple of books on the subject as well.
  14. Not so much when flying alone and attacked by a horde of zeros and afterward.
  15. I think Peter Gabriel era Genesis and Rush post John Rutsey might vie for some credit on the prog rock scene.
  16. That might have been the A-26, later changed to B-26, Invader. Many were turned into corporate aircraft later.
  17. I was going to add Genesis, The Monkees, and Bowie this morning. Good calls all the way around.
  18. The aircraft initially earned a bad reputation due to its necessarily high approach speeds, among other things. Interestingly, MOH recipient Jay Zeamer Jr. failed to check out as pilot in command of B-26s. He had no such problems with B-17s.
  19. I also haven't seen Jay and the Americans mentioned.
  20. Absolutely! Watch them live doing 'Crazy On You' or 'Barracuda' back in the day, or their cover of 'Stairway to Heaven' in honor of Led Zeppelin at the Kennedy Center Honors more recently, and it leaves little doubt as to their talent.
