30 Days of Coffee - Day 20

This is where it all begins.....

I got this coffee maker for Christmas many years ago...probably at least 5. I had a red coffee maker before they were even in "fashion". At the time Cusinart was the only company who manufactured red. Now it seems you can get all colors...except I still love red.....


Today's mug was found in the back of the mug cupboard. It was one that my son collected back in his days of dinosaurs. He was probably around 10 years old...is this mug an antique?


In other news P finally took my desk apart and moved it from the community office upstairs to my private office downstairs. Somehow every time we do a project trouble unfolds. This time trouble reared it's head as a non-working ethernet cord. So last night after the computer was re-established on the other desk upstairs...no cable...no internet...no blogging. Hopefully today a trip to the cable company for a new cord will solve the problem. It could also be the "card" where the cable hooks into the hard drive? In that case we will be using a USB connection for the modem. Wow, you'd think I really knew what the heck I was talking about! Wish me luck!
PS - I am asking for Adobe Photoshop for Christmas...thoughts?????

Photoshop is a great program, but really INTENSE! It takes a while to learn how to use it. I also suggest getting a tutorial-type book. Oh yeah - the software does not come with a manual - you have to purchase that separately. This is professional grade software we are talking about. That means they squeeze as much $$ as they can out of you!

Wow - 5 years on the same coffeemaker? You do an excellent job keeping it working. Mommy goes through one every two years or so (and forget about the carafes -- she breaks one every six months).

Your talk about computers made Mommy's eyes glaze over -- she just turns it on in the morning and prays it works.

Ian recommends Photoshop Elements instead of the full-blown Photoshop. Elements is a lot cheaper and a lot easier to use!

HEY! We have that coffeemaker. It's black. Noisy bugger but it's nice to place the whole beans in and the coffeemaker does the rest.
