Hi Lisa.

I actually saw it in the Cairo Museum many years ago, with the other King Tut treasures plus a lot more, not that I really had enough time to see it all. I went on a Bible Lands cruise. The day we visited Cairo, we had a few hours at the museum, went out to the Pyramids and visited a papyrus centre. The coach journey was an experience too :shock:

The whole cruise I was just in amazement at the things I was seeing and the places I was going.

I have a film scanner now so I'm planning on getting a lot more of my pictures from this and another similar cruise online.

Glad you clarified, Cat, but it's still a good job I was sitting down...

I'm bringing this over here, because it may get quite chatty on the topic. :lol:

My mom was a DIE HARD coffee drinker. Coffee was her life blood. :lol:
In the last couple years, since going natural, she learned so much about what is good for you and what is not. Coffee is on the 'not' list.
She's been slowly evangelizing me. ;)
I recently found some FANTASTIC tea (;) Thank you Athena) and thought... well, if I can switch to tea, I'll be doing good.
I have a cute little teapot and a large assortment of fine Malaysian teas on it's way to me.

I'm still in the transition period though.

Road trip= coffee. Can't change that yet.

I haven't switched over completely yet, and hard as I try, I can't convince myself of the evils of coffee. I can't.

But, I told my mom I'd try.
We'll see what happens. ;)

I threw up a lot after being put under to take all 4 of my wisdom teeth out, but not after either of the other two surgeries I've had. Odd that the oral surgery stuff seems so much worse.

This is gorgeous great eye for composition, Athena.Thank you Becky. Those were with the Brick. I'm eager to take the 5D out this weekend and see if I can improve.

I had a praying mantis by my door a few days ago. I couldn't have gotten a decent shot of it if I'd been trying. It was flitting around constantly. I don't know how those macro people do it...

Want me to pick up some more tea for you and bring it back in July? I'll see if I can dig up photos from the highlands where that tea is grown - it's pretty. Did you order a Bodum teapot? They're the best. If you have one of those, I can send you some loose leaf tea - it's even better.

We have about a dozen different French Presses around here, a couple are made by Bodum. They work great for coffee or loose tea. I did not realize they made tea specific pots.

For coffee, I have almost exclusively used the AEROPRESS (http://www.aerobie.com/Products/aeropress_story.htm) coffee maker for 2 months now. It is even better than using a French Press, and I highly recommend it. It basically makes Espresso, I just dilute it with a bunch of hot water to get a strong cup of the best coffee I have ever made.

Ok. Tell me how a french press works. And why it's good. Tell me all you know. ;)

well personally, I hate paper filters so I originally bought a french press (way before the wire mesh filters for a coffee pot). It works along the same lines except that you can regulate the temperature of the water better (some coffee pots heat the water too hot...anything beyond 170 scorches the taste of the coffee) by boiling it yourself.

However, since I bought a coffee pot that doesn't scorch the water I stopped using it and since I bought my new espresso machine, I NEVER use the coffee pot.

The downside to the french press is that you are constantly draining and cleaning out coffee grounds. At this point in their existence in my life, I use them for camping.

OK, that is so cool. I had been looking into the French Press stuff for coffee not too long ago. Didn't know that you could use those for tea.Just use the press for coffee, the tea needs to float loose and then be taken out of the water. The teapots have a basket that sits inside and the leaves can float loosely in the water. Then you take the basket out to stop the brewing. If you leave the leaves in too long the tea can become bitter.


*Happily browsing the Bodum site*

Ok. Tell me how a french press works. And why it's good. Tell me all you know. ;)You put your coffee in, add boiled water and let it sit for awhile, then you slowly press down the plunger and pour the coffee. It's LOVELY - very rich. :)

Dried coffee grounds are also great odor/moisture eliminators. Simply spread the used grounds on a cookie sheet, allow to dry. Cut the feet out of a pair of pantyhose and place the grounds inside. Tie off the top and hang them anywhere you wish! Works especially well in camp trailers.

I'll agree with that, but it is non-permanent-- like getting honey. You do no damage to the bees when you harvest honey.

I do hate the cruel harvesting of magical creatures just to satisfy family recipes, though. Just ask my "sweet" sister Permie about our row over Sugar Plum Faeries. It's getting time for our annual argument.

Just back home.

Left early this morning, just as the sun was rising. It was one of those magical sunrises where high contrails are a deep salmon colour before the sun really comes up. As I was driving along, it was wonderful to see the mist still in the fields and valleys.

I drove home tonight during an equally wonderful twilight. Saw the sun thinly veiled by whispy, cotton candy clouds, like someone had stirred them gently with a hand.

Fields on either side containing cows and sheep with long long shadows. Wonderful quality to the light. Of course, I was wearing sunglasses, which added to the sight.

Shame I didn't have the camera, or the opportunity to stop and use it.

Anyhow, it's lovely to see days like this. Just wanted to share.

Funny how this started on its own. And last week I started getting Run Time errors do I want to debug notices.

The multi-quote checkboxes are controlled by Javascript, so the ActiveX and Java settings don't matter. I just don't know which of the "security" settings actually allows Javascript to work. Sorry. I'm not very familiar with IE.

Does anyone else have access to that computer? Seems odd that it only stopped working recently. Something had to change.
