    Maybe I'll FB him since he stopped popping in here.

    He's not really on FB much either.

    I have been using a French press for coffee quite a bit. We use a Mr. Coffee pot for the first time in the morning. And it's, ok. But brewing for about four minutes in the press gets a lot more richness out of the coffee.
    I use a Arabica French roast from the store. Toast those beans well please.

    Ok Jon: Ready, set, go!

    We leave July 5. Only there for 4 nights - the girls will be at camp, but because Annie is only 7 we don't get a full week away.

    In fact, Ben has a French press that's shaped like R2D2...geek.

    (Okay, we gave it to him for Christmas a couple years ago. His first one broke and Think Geek replaced it for free - design defect.)

    When it rains it pours.


    The Cousins contacted me last night in a might bit of a tizzy.


    Seems that all the snow they had gotten up in the hills turns into water when the temperatures warm up quickly for an extended period.


    A few years back they got the brilliant idea to install a sump pump in their cabin. Only when they installed the discharge pipe they buried it in the ground so that the exit was also buried.


    Now think about that for a minute. You have water being shot out of a 1.5" pipe at a rather high volume/rate. Then you bury the exit of the pipe in the dirt, effectively plugging it.


    Now between you, me, and this here fence post, I told them that burying the pipe might not be the wisest thing. Oh no, I was told that the earth absorbs water just fine.


    That is until the earth is saturated and you are still trying to shoot a high volume of water into it. Much like blasting a water cannon at a cement wall.


    So I get this call last night and it appears that the pump was running, the water wasn't going down, and then like Old Faithful erupting, the discharge pipe separated from the pump sending a column of water shooting up in the crawl space of the cabin.


    And that was the reason for the Cousins calling in a tizzy.


    After a bit of talking I was able to calm them down enough to figure out what was going on. After being told about this column of water shooting up in the crawl space I'm racing for the garage, while still on the phone, to grab some tools. I ask them what they need - towels, buckets, hose clamps, etc.


    Soap.


    Soap?


    Turns out that their next door neighbor was planning on throwing a baby shower for her best friend, and when she saw that plume of water shooting up in the air, well she thought it was the best place and time for the shower. And the figured that no shower was complete without soap. And being the Cousins, they hadn't made a fresh batch of soap. So they were calling to ask me to bring over some of that fancy "store bought soap", with it being a special occasion and all.


    I couldn't decide which situation to tackle first: the fact that having a mini geyser in their crawl space was not good, or telling them that a baby shower isn't actually an event where friends and family gather to bath a baby.


    In the end I just said, "Ok" and picked up some corndogs on the way over.


    Because if you are going to have a baby shower, you might as well throw in hotdogs and cornbread. And what better way to serve them than to mix the two together.
