|Aug-07-17|| ||morfishine: Ah yes <offramp>, I actually like a strong cup of tea from time to time, but drink coffee more often. To get the best full flavor, I grind whole bean daily. The grinder is noisy, but that's the price the neighbors pay for my aromatic morning cup. |
For the richest, most flavorful coffee, on weekends I take it one step further and subject my fresh ground beans to a French Press, which is the simplest contraption imaginable. Hot water is poured directly on top of your ground coffee in a cylindrical glass press, then its allowed to steep for 5 minutes or so. Then a form fitting metal round plate with holes and metal mesh is slowly forced down the cylindrical press until the 'used-up' coffee is pinned beneath the metal plate with the now filtered fresh coffee above separated by the metal plate.
We are ready to pour
This is the ultimate when it comes to coffee. The smoothness is astonishing
|Aug-07-17|| ||offramp: It sounds brilliant. I do have an espresso or double espresso roughly once a week. They are normally superb drinks.|
|Aug-08-17|| ||morfishine: Dear <offramp> I do much appreciate you dropping in from time-to-time. Your witticisms are always welcome and heartily embraced |
On an off note, have you ever ventured or repaired to Cornwall?
I'm fascinated about this location and am thinking of vacationing there in the near future and would value your opinion on the subject.
|Aug-09-17|| ||offramp: <Morfishine>, I have been twice to Cornwall. Once one crosses the River Tamar the whole landscape changes. Cornwall is wilder than Devon, hillier and much rockier. The people are very friendly, although in recent years they have been overrun by boorish Londoners buying holiday homes along the coast. I remember the odd outcrops of grey granite all over the steppe. The coast is never very far away and the sea is wild, very rough.|
Part of Cornwall are the wild and inaccessible Scilly Isles, a mysterious place.
I don't think I'll be going back to Cornwall, or anywhere west of Somerset. I want to visit two towns which are nouns: Bath and Pill. Pill is quite small but it has a great song written about it:
Pill Pill I Love Thee Still.
|Aug-10-17|| ||morfishine: <offramp> Your assessment of Cornwall is much appreciated. All I had read was from some magazine. My idea of the perfect vacation (for actual repairment) is some place where it's relatively quiet where I can surf fish without any hindrance and where I can mingle with the locals at my whim and keep my own hours. |
If surf fishing is not practical in the Cornwall region due to the rough surf conditions or lack of fish, I would have to cross it off my list :(
|Aug-22-17|| ||Dr Winston OBoogie: Morf.. Check out the highlights of Germany v Braznil WC semi final here.. Ignore the <humiliation> Brazil suffered from and check out just how many chances they had to beat Neuer the best goalkeeper in the world.. Count em up https://youtu.be/-sfRVyDHT30|
Now look what Messi does to the same goalkeeper in 4 steps and a shuffle of his shoulder!!
"Here he is again. Here he is again.. That's <astonishing> that's absolutely world class!!"
And here's some Zidane for you :)
Zizou - Maestro of the decade https://youtu.be/C7mXGMcpA0g
|Aug-23-17|| ||morfishine: <Dr Winston Oboogie> I much enjoyed the links! Especially watching those Brazilian fans crying in the stands. True, Brazil had their chances too, but those were some really nice goals by Germany, no flukes, just really good plays and shots that Brazil just wasn't ready for. |
Very nice link of Messi, he's just incredible and I agree he's the greatest of all time. I've watched many links of Messi and have him firmly in #1
Very nice video of Zidane only missing the highlights of his two goals vs Brazil in the 1998 World Cup Final, but I'm not complaining: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DeB...
|Aug-27-17|| ||offramp: Dear Morf... I love this site. Cg.com is superb. I would like to thank you for liking my silly posts. |
I have a great time here.
|Aug-27-17|| ||morfishine: <offramp> Your posts are not silly, since outrageous, effective wit elevates your posts above being mere 'silly'|
I find them highly enjoyable and use them as a reminder that my pre-supposition that I was an expert at 'wit' and sarcasm, is in fact inaccurate and that I now have to bear the burden of this unhappy news since this revelation so blatantly and rudely informs me that I have much to learn on this subject and am an amateur at best
|Aug-28-17|| ||Dr Winston OBoogie: <morfishine: <Dr Winston Oboogie> I much enjoyed the links! Especially watching those Brazilian fans crying in the stands>|
I think this is the <Brazilian barmaids> mother right after the 4th goal went in. Or it could have been the 5th. Possibly the 6th, maybe the 7th goalwho knows!? There were so many goals that night 😂 😂 http://wpmedia.o.canada.com/2014/07...
Morf.. It's been a pleasure my old friend. In the words of Muhammad Ali to Parkinson.."You heard me didn't you? I <Shall> return" :)
I'm going to the Canary Islands for a month starting tonight/tomorrow morning to see a mate of mine. Then when I get back I've just bought a run down house I'm getting renovated (I'm laying the floor tiles #PikeyFlooylayer 😂) so I can divide it into flats and let it to immigrants and those on benefits....and "metal workers without a college" 😂😂
I'll be in touch, I have your email. Goodbye for now old pal. Here's a rerun of Shearer and Lineker talking about the best result in the history of football.. Germany 7 (seven) Braznil 1!
Nervous laughter from the two greatest strikers of their generations :)
Pip pip cheeerio!
|Aug-30-17|| ||thegoodanarchist: It's time for a new avatar, <morf>. You should go back to the cup of coffee or tea or whatever it was.|
|Aug-30-17|| ||thegoodanarchist: <offramp: The first mouthful, in the morning, is like a tiny Indian heaven.>|
I googled "tiny indian heaven" and clicked on the top hit:
|Aug-30-17|| ||morfishine: <thegoodanarchist> Thanks for the attentiveness, I did mention I would change my avatar frequently. |
I decided I will keep the Florida Gators logo until the Gators lose, which could very well be this Saturday 9-2 vs Michigan since they have 8 guys out on suspension ????????
And who was the brain-dead goof ball that scheduled Michigan as the opening game????
|Sep-03-17|| ||morfishine: <thegoodanarchist> The Gators lost, so time for a new avatar|
BTW: I like your dice avatar, nothing like gambling
|Sep-09-17|| ||thegoodanarchist: Well, <morf>, my online friend, I like your coffee/tea avatar. |
Personally, I say it is coffee with Coffee Mate in it, but I don't want <offramp> to deride me for that (He says it is tea!)
Sorry your Gators lost. Although I only follow Pro Football (NFL), so I don't know what the heck happened.
|Sep-10-17|| ||morfishine: <thegoodanarchist> Well, we've had a real, tough-nosed coach, Mcelwain, since 2015, and he enforces discipline with an iron fist. This is good for team morale, but it comes at a price. Versus Michigan, Florida had 10 players suspended for a variety of reasons. He doesn't coddle problem players, but instead he punishes them without hesitation. (The suspended players included both starting wide receivers)|
So, we'll see how Florida plays as the season wears on. The defense looked good with 2 pick sixes.
|Sep-10-17|| ||thegoodanarchist: <The suspended players included both starting wide receivers>|
That's tough to overcome - it takes time for a QB to develop a rhythm with receivers.
|Sep-10-17|| ||morfishine: <thegoodanarchist> Your response raises an interesting side-line: Finally, the Gators have a prototype QB with Felipe Franks. This guy is 6-6 230 LBS with a rocket arm. He just needs time to develop|
|Sep-12-17|| ||thegoodanarchist: <his guy is 6-6 230 LBS with a rocket arm. He just needs time to develop>|
Cam Newton-type size! Will he/they be great next year?
|Sep-12-17|| ||thegoodanarchist: <The defense looked good with 2 pick sixes. >|
One more thing - big difference between college and pro.
In the NFL, two pick-6s is almost a guaranteed win.
|Sep-20-17|| ||morfishine: Well, hurricane Maria has basically destroyed Puerto Rico, what with being hit with 150+ mph winds, which pretty much tear off roofs without much discrimination|
If you want to help these people, now is the time to contribute. I live in Central Florida and was slightly inconvenienced from Hurricane Irma being without power for a whole day.
What the people in Puerto Rico are enduring is much worse and could go on for months.
Contribute the best you can while avoiding scam sites. Rico was already under a water rationing when Maria hit
|Oct-09-17|| ||morfishine: Did you see where Congress is trying to force the release of the
remaining JFK documents from the National Archives? |
Whats funny is the leader of the effort is Senator 'Chuck' Grassley from Iowa
What does Grassley Knoll about the assassination?
There's also Congresswoman Louise Slaughter helping out, but I won't go there
*None of this is made up
|Oct-10-17|| ||jessicafischerqueen: |
<What does Grassley Knoll about the assassination?>
One of your best, my dear <Morf>. AHAHAHAHA
|Oct-11-17|| ||diceman: <morfishine:
Did you see where Congress is trying to force the release of the remaining JFK documents from the National Archives?>
I believe Mitch McConnell is holding it up, due to the investigation of his sexual ethics violations.
<sexual ethics violations>
I'm sure you're familiar with the phrase:
|Oct-12-17|| ||morfishine: <jessicafischerqueen> Glad you liked it, thanks for dropping in|
<diceman> Thats a good one!..."a bolt from the blue"
