I haven't been on this site for months. Mostly because every time I came and tried to read the forum, it asked me to login. Since I'm lazy and usually on my ipod, I just didn't bother to take the time. Now that I only have to login to post, it's made the site much more usable again.
Oh! Thanks. Yea. I think I must have eased the restrictions some - I wish I could get back into the writing groove.
Have been busy for the last 3 months with an ailing and elderly close family member - that is on the mend... currently way behind in all my writing obligations for this website.
Going to Hawaii in 3 weeks for most of November -- AND GEEPERS DO I NEED THE TIME...
-to get caught up on things.
-to actually rest and restore
-to actually eat, drink and breath coffee for 3 weeks.
One of our hosts will be the awesome folks at
BLUE HORSE KONA
in Kealakekua near Captain Cook, Hawaii - Our base camp will be at the
Hale Kona Kai
waterfront condo on Alii Drive.
I think the 3 weeks will allow me to recoup, regroup and generally rebuild this particular episode of my life.
Glad you'll have a bit of a rest coming-up. Hope you can rest & rejuvenate.
Although I doubt you'll take me seriously, I'm serious when I say I'd be glad to help with some of the writing, if I can. (mostly I'd love an opportunity to try out/ review some gear). You can read the review I posted on my old Hamilton Beach machine if you like. I'm a musician which means 3 things right now:
1. I travel all over the country, and have lots of opportunity to visit new establishments.
2. I'm too broke to afford new gear, and would love to find a way to use some better gear, even on a trial basis, without having to shell out the cash.
3. I have LOADS of downtime, which I spend reading everything I can about coffee, and contributing, where I can, to forums like yours and HB.
4. I don't have a day job, so if I'm kept up all night from ingesting too much caffeine while trying out new gear, it doesn't matter.
