Ever the debate--cats or dogs.
Second gloomy day in a row here in Indiana. And chilly! At least the rain is gone.
Off to the dentist this morning to replace a lost filling. I will decline to be numbed. I can stand the pain for a short duration. Beats being numb for 3 hrs.

 I like both types of critters. I have three dogs, and I have had up to three cats, but now I'm down to one. My newest dog relentlessly chased the cat when he first came home, but she's a really smart cat and they seem to have worked out a detente. Dogs are definitely higher maintenance, but they're a different level of companionship than cats too.

Hi - just drinking coffee. How is everyone. Wish you the best on deciding on your new pet Mindy.

Comment by Randall Smith on September 10, 2014 at 7:14am
Mindy, admittedly, I'm not a cat person, although I've own many of them over the years (more for the children). I didn't realize how much a dog meant to me until Molly, now Dot. They can be a pain--and expensive, but so far, the positives outweigh the negs. I sincerely hope your health improves, coffee or not!

Dog Dot goes crazy when she sees a chipmunk, squirrel, or rabbit.  I still have to keep a close eye on her. Don't know why she wants to visit the neighbor's. Otherwise, she's a good dog. Are you going to get another dog, Mindy?

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."
