Another Monday and I don't have to go to work! Going golfing with my church pastor friend. We certainly don't agree on a lot of things, including politics, but we remain compatible.

Have a great week.

Watching my dog gnawing at a big bone I gave her. What a treat! It's a Friday, and I'm ready for some football! Have a good weekend.

Happy Labor Day. Fresh perked coffee to wash down my hot oat meal (with red raspberries).

@ Don--

Good to know about letting the water drop below boiling temp. I'll give it a try.

Comment by Don on August 29, 2014 at 7:20am

Check out Kone, too, Randall (link below).  Perked coffee is boiled coffee.  Some prefer it.  Others declare it a sacrilege.  Coffee aficionados, of course, insist that boiling water should never be used to make coffee. 

The National Coffee Assn. says:

"Your brewer should maintain a water temperature between 195 - 205 degrees Fahrenheit for optimal extraction.  Colder water will result in flat, underextracted coffee while water that is too hot will also cause a loss of quality in the taste of the coffee.  If you are brewing the coffee manually, let the water come to a full boil, but do not overboil. Turn off the heat source and allow the water to rest a minute before pouring it over the grounds."

I'm an old school percolator user. Picked up a replacement at Goodwill when my old one wore out.  Melitta drip? I'll have to look that up. 

Comment by Bertold Brautigan on August 28, 2014 at 8:15am

@Don - my preferred method of 20 some years is Melitta drip with freshly ground coffee. No electric paraphernalia ever, and I can't bear reheated coffee.

Just idly wondering how folks here make their coffee.  Thirty years ago I used a 50s vintage Farberware percolator, which still works.  (There are some who still swear by this method, while others deplore it.  "Boiled coffee?  Are you serious?) Then I used a French press.  Then a Braun drip machine for a long time.  Now I use a Kone drip filter in a Chemex carafe.  Best yet.

Joan, I "threaten" to relax more--sit out and read, etc., but somehow, I find a weed to pull or a flower to deadhead, or ......! Instead of watching mice, I watch birds. Whatever, enjoy nature and life!  By the way, at last word, the rains didn't appear to damage my farm kids' crops as much as feared. Whew. Get well soon (foot).

Comment by Joan Denoo on August 27, 2014 at 10:00am

Randy, your sunflowers and lovely outside room look so inviting. Not more rain, you have had quite enough. Are your kids going to survive the loss of their crops? Terrible experience! You are lucky to have a hygienist-daughter! I suppose you learned all the reasons to floss after each meal. That is the lesson I learned from my dentist, former husband. 

Mindy, how did moving day go? She's all settled in and ready for the challenges of college! 

Richard, I'll join you in a cup of coffee ... long distance. 

I am taking a day or two off because of a sore that developed on my foot and isn't healing properly. Well, that is my version of why I am taking a day off. I have my computer, and Kindle loaded with a whole stack of books to read, and I sit under the tall sunflowers just beginning to drop their blossoms. The squirrel came over to sniff at my foot the other day, I wonder if it is because of the Vicks Vapo-Rub the podiatrist ordered to treat the fungus that overwhelmed my finger and toe nails after chemo? It is so pretty outside this week. The temperatures are in the low 80s, a nice breeze, full sun, and expected to last all week. My water feature drops a nice steady drip that attracts birds, and a mouse scampers across the patio from time to time between the bird feeders. I don't notice him unless I am quiet and reading. Movement out the side of my eye attracts my attention. They really are cute little rodents. I kill them if they get in my garage and house. Shame on me, attracting them and then murdering them. I did change my bird feeders so that not so many seeds drop to the ground.
