    Wish I had a wood burner this year tons of dead tees being cut up and just take the wood. Ash beetles hit us hard this year.

      I'm a coffee-on-the-patio guy. Sitting out back with the dogs and sunrise is my preferred wake up routine. Last night dipped into the 50s for the first time since spring so it was quite a bit cooler...fall is coming!
      For my taste, nothing beats real Kona coffee. When we go I always bring home about a suitcase full!

        Maxwell House regular coffee here also. It's raining and getting colder as we speak. Some trees have leaves that are turning just a little and my wife's pool will be closed before they fall by the end of the month. To me, that's when the summer is officially over and fall begins.

          I upgraded my morning coffee this year by buying a coffee machine that grinds the whole beans and then brews. The result is well worth it.

                  I lived and transited on Oahu and personally prefer Kona over all their offerings. Macadamia are more to my liking as a Nut rather than a Foo Foo drink and such. But I ain't knockin' you at all because a cup or 2 or more of Joe is the only way to get a start on the day. Enjoy...cr8crshr/Bill:thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup::usflag::usflag::usflag:

                    I too like a cup first thing. Now "first thing" time can vary depending on the day of the week. Monday thru Friday it's a cup to go as I drive 45 minutes to work. I usually leave the house at 7:00 a.m. Weekend rise 'n shine can vary from 6:30 to 9+, ain't gonna lie. My girl Carmen insists that every day should involve pots of coffee, with her favourite southern pecan creamer.

                        "Mornings" start at around 3am for me - I sleep a couple/three hours a night tops.
                        Reasons...
                        I love the smell of coffee, just never took a liking to drinking it. Wife is a coffee achiever, though.
                        Has one of those wasteful, expensive Keurig thingies.
                        Instead, I begin my day long hammering of artesian water from a local, un-flucked-with source:
                        13e6b355-a845-494d-bb47-5959c3a6b604_1.66212f1b7c58751dfe0eeb406e1318ab.jpg
                        And of course, for caffeine the who dang day, it's this and only this:
                        diet-dr-pepper.jpg
                        Dang doctor got me drinking diet 20 years ago when "it was better for me".
                        Turns out, not so much - but I can't stand the taste of sugared sodas anymore, so there ya go.

                        Of course, as some of you know, I do have a serious addiction to what Canadians call "darts",
                        so there's a lot of that going on, too.

                        I have a dozen news sites I peruse every morning first thing, then it's on to the fun ones like FBBO.
                        Always have to catch up on my Atlanta Braves, too, of course. :)
                        Usually have at least two screens running, so the other one is occupied with work emails and such.
                        It goes like that pretty much all morning... wife stirs at 6am, then she's gone off to work.
                        I do my thing from home these days (occasionally I'll still go visit a customer or mop up behind the
                        young 'uns when they break something or piss off a customer).
                        By the time lunch has come, I'm ready to go do something else, like fiddle with the GTX or one of
                        the other herd of critters that needs attention - or the house/property for that matter.
                        ANYTHING to get up out of this chair, which is crippling for too many hours.

                        That's about it from here. It's my gig. I'm awake 20+ hours per day since the first cancer hit 6 years ago,
                        no idea why.
                        Hey, it's a living. All that matters. :thumbsup:

                        Oh, almost forgot...
                        A friend in Halifax posted up his pic of the damage received from the hurricane,
                        so I had some fun with it:
                        3a0h6g.jpg
                        Yes, his sense of humor is as warped as mine. :)

                              Local Time:
                              8:06 AM
                              I like to get whole beans & grind my own
                              different flavors all the time, mix it up see what's good
                              I love the taste of coffee,
                              especially a nice 1st fresh cup, right out of the pot

                              darker & thicker, stronger the better
                              cowboy coffee my kids use to call it
                              stand a horseshoe up in it :poke:
                              stronger it is the less bitter, it tastes IMO
                              (?, I really never thought of it as bitter)

                              I don't need to drink it, I can function just fine without it
                              I like to drink it, like the taste,
                              I like to sit down & enjoy the morning
                              (or evening sometimes after a meal or with some sort of "rich dessert')
                              I have a nice cup (or 3) in the AM,
                              my coffee mug is a 2-1/2 cup, filed about 2/3rds full

                              I don't get why some people want decaffeinated ?,
                              why even drink it ?, it's still got caffeine, makes no good sense :poke:
                              decaffeinated always taste like I assume 'shit would too'

                              every so often I like some of them hoity toidy flavored creams
                              or Kahlua or Bailie's as a change (at night), but it's pretty rare

                              I like it black, sometimes with a sprinkle of sugar,
                              less than a teaspoon in 2-1/2 cups

                              been drinking coffee since I was in HS, stronger the better
                              my dad use to have a nice stout pot going every morning
                              I loved the smell of waking up to that in the AM (& bacon :poke: )
