I knew a guy like that in uni. He lived in a tin shack in the bush, no power, no plumbing. Just a rain tank and a small wood stove. He heated water for bathing on the stove and tipped a bucket on his head outside, even in winter. He didn't even have a drop pit toilet. He shat in a metal bucket and burnt it once a week. I never asked if he used different buckets.

Needless to say, he was a little... odd.



We've got several people like that around here.

Incidentally, a recent article in our local consumer magazine was about solar water heating. It seems that, in terms of money, solar water is not good. The electricity savings are too low to pay for the extra costs involved in buying and installing solar water heaters. Of course, this may not be true everywhere.



It depends on the system, too. I have a drain back system that is about half the cost of a glycol system, and it would have been about the same cost of installing a boiler. Perhaps our electricity is more expensive, too, because heating with electricity isn't very efficient for us. Plus, my assumption is that prices of electricity will go up. I figured it out to be about a 10-15 year payback on the investment, which isn't bad. Solar electric is another matter, though. I doubt that it will pay for itself before needing to replace it.

Okay, so now that we've got the coffee figured out, I've got a real hankerin' for a fried egg. Anyone up on that technology?

That's a test, not an answer! All I learned from that is that I shouldn't do it on a rock in Death Valley and that I couldn't think up five GOOD things about fried eggs. Also, that I should apparently change partners often for some reason....

Crack two eggs into a coffee cup.
Heat a saute´ pan on medium flame.
Add a little canola oil to the pan.
Melt a 1/4 stick of butter in the pan.
Pour in the eggs.
Cook until the white becomes solid.
Flip.
Turn off heat and let sit in the pan a few seconds.
Shake the pan a bit to see if the egg moves freely.
Salt and pepper.
Serve with bacon, biscuits, and gravy.

First you find a pig farmer, and buy a piglet. You can name the piglet after someone you don't like, fromthehills, or something, then you feed the piglet all your leftovers for 6 months. Shoot it in the head, then gut it. Cut off the bacon part, and fry it. Pull the bacon out of the pan, and throw in some flour, stir, milk, stir, stir stir. Salt and pepper.

Second. Marry a woman that knows how to bake. Buy her some flowers and ask her for biscuits.

Ordered 4 one-pound bags of Edward's Naturally-Flavoured Organic Coffee (ground) through Amazon for around $52 ($12.97 per bag with free shipping over $50).

1. Hazelnut flavoured- Has a pretty weak hazelnut taste, but at least it's not as perfumey and artificial-tasting as other "hazelnut" coffees.

2. Snickerdoodle- They don't tell you what's in it. One might assume chocolate and peanuts, but it doesn't have noticeable extra flavour to me.

3. Irish Cream The ground coffee has a somewhat chocolatey and perhaps whiskey-like aroma which doesn't really come through in the cup, but it does have a nice, rich flavour.

4. French Vanilla Have yet to try this one.

So far, I don't think the above coffees I've tried are worth the money, but plan to report on the vanilla one.

Dammit, if I'm going to smell like I've been drinking when I go to work, I'm damn sure going to put some real Irish Cream in the cup. That flavor has no up side.

I second Rob's sentiment.

And that snickerdoodle is the ass sweat of John T. Snickerdoodle, former linebacker for the New England Patriots. Nasty stuff.

Go to the grocery store, coffee isle. There should be a group of coffee bean dispensers. Get a bag, fill it up with French Roast. Don't worry, it has nothing to do with France or the French. If you don't have a grinder at home, and you use their grinder, get another bag, because you are nice, and put it under the grinder and run it. Some prick may have left snickerdoodle beans in it. Once satisfied that the coast is clear, dump your beans and place your bag under the grinder. Go to the liquor store and get some Irish cream. Don't bother with the Bailey's, get the cheaper one, Caroline's or something. If your feeling frisky, get a half pint of Jameson or Bushmills to boost the cream a wee bit. Make the coffee strong, so it doesn't get drowned out by the whiskey and cream, and so you don't pass out by 10:00. Makes a balanced breakfast, and wholesome lifestyle.

I can well believe it.
I have long referred to bacon as one of the essential food groups, so my nieces gave me a bottle of Bakkon, an allegedly bacon-flavoured vodka, for my birthday a few years back. Just awful stuff. I thought it might be okay in a Bloody Mary, but no, just terrible. I have since used it to temporarily preserve a couple of colorful insects and to remove some adhesive residue, but that's it.

Yeah, bacon is fantastic stuff, but there are limits to all things.

Bacon vodka... THEHORROR.

Do the insects stare at you, seemingly trapped in a bacony hell?

No kidding. Never mind the bacon -- anything they get their hands on these days, *oink!* on goes the maple flavour. Disgusting!

I ordered a bloody mary last month at my friend's daughter's funeral. The girl behind the counter hands me a caesar! Like they're the same thing! And to top it all off, she hits it with four dashes of tabasco. Kids these days, they got no idea what to put in drinks.

Had never heard of a Caesar. May not have trickled down this way yet. Not sure how I'd like the Clamato juice.

Was up near Quebec City a couple of years ago and ordered sugar pie in a restaurant, just to see what it was. Apparently it's a mixture of maple sugar and flour. I enjoyed it. Just the thing for a border-line diabetic. (My doctor insists that I am diabetic, but what the hell does she know?

Sounds gross. Never heard of it, myself. But those frenchies, they get up to a lot of stuff!

Yeah, the caesar seems to be a Canadian drink. I guess that clamato juice is a real Canadian ingredient, or something...y'know, what with it originatin' in New Yoke and all.

Am drinking my first cup of Edward's Natural Organic French Vanilla coffee right now. To my taste buds it's good, but nothing to write home about, the vanilla flavor being hardly noticeable. YMMV.

Bung a mug of milk in the bing-oven for 90 seconds. Stir in a spoon of sugar and a cap of vanilla essence. Fall to sleep and pleasant dreams.

Did you mean to omit coffee? At least let me add a little coffee and perhaps a good dose of the suggested Irish Cream liqueur to the concoction before my nappy.

I've been off coffee for six months, and one cup the other day kept me up for three days.

Three {!#%@} days!

A splash of brandy for grownups wouldn't go astray.
