Old Man Winter...

...has arrived...and it's not even the Winter Solstice yet.  I'm so happy I could spit.

It's pretty, I have to admit...
...but that doesn't mean I like it...
...because now I have to shovel it, snowblow it, drive in it, shiver and huddle up against it with my coat pulled tight around me...
O Summer!  I miss you...

Recently discovered a simple way to make a spectacular cup of coffee...
It's called the "aeropress"...marvelously easy to use and makes the best cup of coffee I've had in years.  You grind fresh coffee beans, put the ground coffee into the cylinder on the left, place that cylinder directly over your coffee mug, pour hot water into the cylinder, then  s l o w l y  press down, forcing the hot water through the fresh coffee.

The result is a fabulously rich, flavorful cup of java.  I've told Karen for awhile now that I thought we were sacrificing quality for convenience by using the wildly popular K-cups, and this definitely confirms it.

Hate to sound like a paid advertisement -

- believe me, I'm not - being paid, that is - but if you're a fan of a really good cup of coffee, you need to try this.  It's a whole lot less expensive than one of those K-cup machines and 10x better.  Takes a little longer for sure, but quality always does.

Today I need to get copies made of our annual Christmas letter and get them in the mail...I'm careful to honor the restraining orders against us resulting from last year's letter...

...but there are still a few people who haven't told us to cease and desist.

later, mcm fans...
