    OK, lets make it tough, if our sponsers will pay for the coffee: !st pot of the day is 100% Columbian Fantasia, 2nd pot is Western kettle brew, 3rd pot is Turkish expresso, 4th until last is Maxwell Classic, and the last is Jamaican Blue Mountain.

    When I was working as a LEO doing surveillance I took 3 2 quart thermos full of black coffee on site with me for an 8 hour shift. At supper out tonight, I truly can't say how many cups I drank, because my cup was never empty before the waitress refilled it. I ordered a cup to go, paid the tab and made a pit stop, received my large cup to go which was empty 12 miles later mostly at 55 mph to our house and since I've had two pots and it's time at 10:30 PM for my shower and other bathroom uses before bed. Still, another pot is set up to percolate at 7:00 AM tomorrow.

    no one has mentioned cowboy coffee ... you know the kind where you throw the grounds in the boiling water over a camp fire ... then toss some cold water on it to settle the grounds to the bottom ... not trumpet or date friendly .. still it is something to experience.

    the only problem with the Aussies consuming too many adult beverages to enhance the enjoyment of their 1 hour practice, is that imbibing might ((JUST MIGHT)) affect the assessment of the quality of practice for that hour!!!! ROFL ROFL ROFL

    of course, I suppose to them --- it ALL SOUNDS GOOD!!!! ROFL ROFL ROFL

    While I practice 1 to 2 hrs a day, when I can't practice that much for life's reason's, I will do at least 1/2 hr of very focused practice ............

    By focused I mean total concentraion of the task .................... Always softly !!

    Cowboy coffee is the same as "Western kettle brew" I mentioned, but in the tapered campfire pot, the grounds just slide to the bottom edge if you don't pour too rapidly.
