Coffee !

I've been all over these forums & can't find the 'right forum', so mybe i'll find an answer on the front porch ?  Smiley Very Happy

I have 2 cans of 'cheapie' coffee ; tried mixing them so they would be more flavorful, but not-so-much did it work. Might buy a more spendy brand & mix them, but in meantime, anyone have any ideas on how to make these cheap brands taste better ?

Thanks !

March came in like a lion to my front porch, with a high wind advisory and snow yesterday. Flurries today, with rain and some sun forecasted for later in the week. I can’t wait for lamb-like weather. How about all of you?

A familiar face looks out onto West Rock Avenue. He’s relaxed, legs folded atop each other as if he’s got nothing but time. Two mittens peek out, thick enough to shield him from the bitter cold. From just above a blue face mask, peach-colored skin and two tufts of bright white hair complete the look.


Bernie Sanders has officially arrived in New Haven.

Westville snow sculptor David Sepulveda has returned with a ten-foot homage to U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders, whose wooly mittens and cold-weather casual attire went viral after the Inauguration of President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris in January. Sepulveda started the sculpture in his front yard Tuesday morning. He expects to be finished by Wednesday night.

It was a matter of me not being able to deny the perfect conditions any longer,” he said after a full day of snow sculpting on Tuesday. “The snow was very textured, and very pliable. I always like to choose a theme or subject that is pretty positive, and the Bernie meme was circulating all over the place. It really felt like something that was lighthearted and fun.”

For the artist, a 36-year veteran of the Stamford Public Schools, the sculpture has been a long time coming. During his childhood in the city’s Rockview and Brookside public housing projects, Sepulveda loved “the big snows” that are now part of New Haven history. When he began working as a visual arts teacher in Stamford, he learned to cherish the occasional snow day. It was, perhaps, only a matter of time before chilly creations started showing up in front of his home, where he and his wife have lived for 33 years.

To be absolutely honest It  was brisk last night and first time I got up -14* didn’t happen for 3:00am. Flipped over and slept in til It hit -5*.👍

 

Had to wait for the warm up to happen.  Been sleeping with window open awhile, mummy sleeping bag works in unheated bedroom.

 

No colds, flu or Plague (Covid). Now, I’m feeling 🍀 lucky time to bring in firewood and out rubbish, never mix those two up.

 

Froze

And yes, after long days/nights, I'd still like to swing these hunks of glass , plastic and silicon against the nearest wall Come on retirement!

I am very thankful that we had a peaceful inauguration day. I hope that there is a relatively smooth and positive transition to a solving the pandemic and a positive upward reduction of unemployment by way of a bipartisan effort.  May we drastically reduce the number of children and their families that go to bed hungry daily. My we see a reduction in evictions until there is a major reduction in unemployment. 

May we see our new Commander-in-chief and our Vice President lead us in a positive direction that includes all of our fellow Americans!

Honestly, I don’t know if I got measurable snow last night, still trying to convince myself to go out to woodpile, it’s 11* with a slight breeze and cloudy.

 

Few flurries coming for today and tonight in Maine mountains.

 

Saturday and Sunday’s last boy, did we get snow around 18-24”.

 

Just another day in Paradise😷.
