New brew method

Sweetmarias has a new brew device that Tom said he and Maria have been using for over a month at their home with good results. It is like a big one cup pour through that only starts to drip once it is done brewing and you place it on your cup or theromos. It is a combination of a french press, Chemex and auto drip coffee maker. You get full water contact for a full brew time like french press, you get simple easy clean up with a paper filter of the Chemex and auto drip, you get the great temp control of the water that you don't get with auto drip. Click here for more info. This will make for a great camping brewer.

Three blogs I like

I am fascinated with how my brother Heath's blog, my friend John's blog and my blog each match our personalities.
My blog tends to match my Extroversion with posts about cycling, celebrities dieing, and things outside of me I find on the net.
John's blog matches his general Introversion with posts about his family,His feet,
And his mind.
And finally Heath's blog tends to match his Nerdoversion with posts about water spigots.
What did I title this post again?

Does this count as an example of that dumb belief that bad things happen in threes?

First Farrah died, then the King of Pop and now Billy Mays has died. Is it wrong for me to feel the most broken up over the Oxiclean spokesmans death. From Wikipedia: On June 27, Mays had been aboard US Airways Flight 1241,[16] which landed roughly when its front tires were blown out. The violence of the landing caused some loose objects in the cabin to strike some passengers. Mays told a local Tampa television station that some of the objects "hit me on the head, but I got a hard head." It is unclear whether Mays' death was related to the incident. His wife noted that he felt unwell when he went to bed that night early at 10 pm. The next morning he was pronounced dead at 7:45 am by a local fire rescue crew.[15]

An unsuspecting martyr

I know this post is a few days too old to post but when I first saw it it was too early, then work got in the way and then my approach to it needed to be thought out.
Yes I made this Iran green Obama style pic.
In the video I am most struck by her calmness, her eyes following the camera and her hands finally letting go and relaxing as she dies.
The video. It is graphic and made an impact on me, others around the world and on Iran. I hope her death helps the people of Iran live more free and peacefully in the future.

High cadence

These guys are really fast. Not to mention how hard it is to ride rollers without shooting off. 100% concentration and no abrupt movements or you are on the ground. I have never lasted more than about 20 minutes on rollers. To pedal this fast in such smooth control is amazing. Click here for the video.

New search engine

Microsoft has a new search engine called bing that is a very refreshing alternative to Google. Seems fast the search results seem less influenced by site sponsors.
