Are these the beans that are feed to the sorry but the name escapes me and then retrived for want of a better word?

Apparently in Vietnam Civets (external link) roam freely through the coffee plantations and eat the beans that have fallen. What they 'process' is then used as coffee beans.

After being thoroughly washed and roasted of course.

Ok Jon, the assassination market must be on the up :), I'm going down with the guy I was out shooting with last night and I know Wayne was interested as well.

Sounds good. What were you thinking of painting down at Dungeness??

Ive just had a couple of shots printed and i have framed them for some work collegues who are leaving in the next couple of weeks. Mainly as the company has decided not too. They have both worked there for over 30 years each, and are great guys. Just a little momento.

The boats and and what ever else we can find there is a few rusty bits of machinery down there.

Wouldn't it be cheaper to go to somewhere like McDonalds if you wanted "sh1t" coffee? ;)

Great set Adrian really liking the first one.

As to the wire wool I ued a bit of chain this time with a ring in the end and threaded the wire wool through the ring and then through it's self.

Thanks

I seem to have misplaced my photographic mojo just lately :( nothing seems to inspire at the moment.

If anyone sees my photographic mojo aimlessly wandering about could you ask it to go home

Still plenty of time to join in the 52 wk project

Nice shots of the Toyota Jonathan, did you like it as a car to drive - was it good off road?

It was excellent off road for what basically looks like some poncey "Chelsea Tractor". It has proper 4WD in 2 ratios and a 2WD drive mode for economy. We drove it into (and back out of) an hideous swamp, let the game rangers at our lodge try and break it and finally, on our way back to Joburg, I got it airborne at 80mph on a dirt track. Only a Range Rover smoothes out bumps like this car :) I just need to write the damn review now :(

It was huge fun. Obviously those shots were taken by me so I was not driving (we used the lodge owner for that) but I had plenty of chances to get it sideways, backwards and airborne. Thankfully, I managed to avoid getting it upside down :)

Chris. Got this through this morning from you (or more properly, your lovely wife!!)

QUOTED IMAGE

Thank you so much. Back later after the tasting...

Awesome, glad it arrived ok. I have only tried it using a filter method so haven't really tried it properly. It's definitely one of those coffees you have to say tried though isn't it :D

In Australia there's a saying if you want to go into the outback take a Range Rover if you want to come back take a Land Cruiser.

I may steal that for the article :p It kind of describes where this car sits in the food chain. It's not as hard-core as a Land Cruiser (although you can add some Bilstein shocks in the options :)) but it is no pussy either. We really did dick with this car. When we dropped it back with the Toyota rep at the airport, his face was priceless. It was filthy, caked in mud, ****, grass and dust. He was clearly thinking "WTF did you do?". We were nicer to the cappuccino coloured one :)

Toyota's the only thing I'd feel safe in 'out there'. It's a dinky car but of course (being a girl) I loved the colour of the Desert Cruiser (or whatever it was called). It looked like a large latte with whipped cream on top - with groovy rear doors that open outward like a black cab.

On the tarmac it took three days to get from 0-60 and was very thirsty but struth, on the dirt it got very happy (as did Jonathan).

I've come to the conclusion that this 'interest in cars' is a male problem. One see's it develop in small boys with their wire model cars, and it never really goes away. Why should men find cars so interesting? A car is no more than a machine, like a washing machine or an iron. But men show no interest in these. You never see men standing around talking about washing machines.

Then I won't - every motoring article written is automatically checked for Clarkson references - it's almost like spell checking! :( I do like the guy but damn, he makes writing hard!
