Here. Wifey decided we're fostering kittens now and the first two showed up last night. Study for CFP and house prep for winter today.

Present. New espresso grinder is excellent, although I do need to figure out a dosing funnel.

First frost expected tonight, so harvesting the last of the peppers today.

I thought you are supposed to grind right into the portafilter?

Today and tomorrow I think I’ll take the big two kids individually riding at Green Mountain, air quality be damned. Either Mac Ride or TowWhee/their own bike for them at their discretion.

For context of non-Denver monkey's, this was yesterday afternoon.

Plumbing, electrical, drywall, weed whacking, apple picking. The things that will be part of my day today. Maybe a bike ride at the end if I am not too tired.

Yup, however it's a zero retention grinder. There's no chute or anything, the burrs are open straight to the portafilter. And because of the built in scale a standard dosing funnel doesn't work; there's a retention arm for the top of the portafilter. Most dosing filters are just circular, but the settle 270wi needs on with a cutout for clearance and so it doesn't interfere with the scale taring. Not my pic, but the black object is the dosing funnel.

This is my pic. No clumping, nice and fluffy.

Yo!

Think we will put in an offer on the house we saw this morning, but greatly doubt our offer will be competitive. Real estate agent seems to think its going to go for 15% over asking...

Nice! What town?
Amherst, NH. Looking in the Wilton, Milford, Amherst area as its about as close as we can get while still having decent schools.


Real estate is insane right now.
Looked at a house a few months ago that was listed at 425K and ended up selling for 510K. It really is insane. Low rates are cool and all, but you still have to pay that money back.

Well the ride did not happen. Traffic was insane today. Damn leaf lookers I wish they would review their carbon footprint. Did manage to check a big box though. Transit van is Finally complete and ready to go for November trip. That is provided we are not at the brink of post election civil war.

you need to head east to wilsons, or snooks, or heartbreak, or coleman boundary...all those less populated but super awesome places. also, don't you WANT the van to be ready precisely so you CAN bug out when the November civil war hits?

I’m just talking about traffic around town in general. I live in S. Asheville by Bent Creek and just going to the store sucked. Hence never even making it to the woods. I agree, Coleman and Wilson’s tend to be less crowded.
