I'll add "you do realize" to this list.

The quote is relevant, not because it's any different from any other time we heard the exact same thing only to see no improvement, but because Drevno has proved it true at every coaching stop in the last decade, college or pro, NFL veteran or true freshman. Drevno makes this quote not only valid, but maybe even a little understated.

Random fact: if you flip through the Good Book every once in a while you won't see anything about "the Antichrist" written. Anywhere.

That's a tough question, honestly. With speculative investments low risk and short term are usually on opposite sides of the equation. If you hadn't just bought a place I'd say put that 20k towards a rental property.

It doesn't, unfortunately, but I regulate it by having it set to release to the cup by default before the temperature climbs too high. I've found if I forget the temp rises, and will also scald the milk. Even if it does get too hot the steamed milk helps cut any acidity, not to mention the millions of tiny micro bubbles it puts into your coffee if it's not too stiff. If the foam is softer and can stir in it does for a sip what professional tasters do when they aggressively slurp to aerate.

This is madness. Everybody knows Dr Pepper is the intellectual drink for the chosen ones..

Cafe Santo Domingo is easily my favorite brand to buy, but there's a slight nostalgia bias for me. Still worth a try, if you haven't yet.
|1 week 1 day ago||I had a similar experience||
I had a similar experience with my Breville. Don't get me wrong, I love my machine, but I stumbled on a MUCH better one as a backup for work and found it makes the best cup by far. Many on-demand style espresso machines seem to skimp out on water temperature for the cup, where the stove top kind gets more steam into the grounds. My best cups come from a small machine where the entire water reservoir is like a pressure cooker, and once it all fully boils and evaporates you choose where it goes: cup or wand. The whole building will smell like coffee, my cup will have a delicious oil slick on top every time, and my grounds will be too hot to touch and dry as a bone afterwards. My breville and stove-top grounds end up not hot but warm, and soupy in the end, by comparison, with great flavor, but less of it.

Since I double posted I'll continue. You lose a bit more flavor if your beans were roasted and ground a long time ago as well, and left in a not-tightly-sealed container. The closer to brewing you get with the roasting and grinding you can manage, the better result you'll get. When I used to roast my own green beans and do my own blends I could roast the same day and notice the difference between fresh and less-fresh.

Get an espresso/cappuccino maker, or at least a French press. Much of the flavor from coffee beans is in the essential oils released, and any pots with a paper filter trap them and prevent them from getting into your cup.

Lol! Yes, your practice squad beat our practice squad. Congrats. We'll just gloss over the whole first quarter, though..

Wish I could go back in time and read it for the first time, again. Loved you in Rescuers Down Under, btw.

Nobody should be rooting against Shane, by all accounts he's a great young man. The op seems to be writing in response to the large and vocal crowd on mgoblog that keeps repeating: anybody but Shane. I think its silly to write him off like that, especially in light of how generally bad most of our previous staff was at the whole coaching football thing, and how overwhelmingly great our new staff is in that same respect.

Of all the comments from 9ers fans that deadspin posted that trash the owners, the new stadium, and the culture of winning they ran away from when they fired and smeared Harbaugh, I think this one is my favorite. Just about died laughing.

My computer keeps telling me to switch every time I log on, but I'm going to wait. I don't really see the need. If I did switch now I'd definitely do it on one of my virtual machines with all my other systems, sandboxed from my original os. Don't really know why more people don't use vms. I have plenty of memory and never worry about breaking my computer.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||Exactly. Granite is more||
Exactly. Granite is more affordable, and usually has a greater variety, and cheaper installation. I'd personally go with stained concrete counters over quartz. They can be extremely beautiful, several inches thick, and even less expensive.

100% honest, all the players. Mostly peppers because we've had to wait a whole year for his debut now.

Best of luck to him. Was probably for the best. I thought his commitment was rather strange when it happened for just that reason. Hope to see him playing somewhere soon

Because fuck the needy, let's cosplay! Seriously, they say football is a religion over there, yet most big clubs play in the crappiest, old, run-down, hodge-podge stadiums built one side at a time, then brits do something like this. Tolkein > the beautiful game, I guess..

Larry Page hacks Google maps for The Game ever year, and this is the response? Filling a Facebook page with quizzes. You make me sad, Mr hacker.

The NFL behaves as if they're judge, jury, and executioner, until they go before an actual judge and they get schooled on how incompetent, and farcical their "due process" really is.

I can't figure out why they released the linebacker. I mean he basically saved the Jets season with that punch.

Legarrette Blount strongly disagrees. Guy sure does love him a good suckerpunch..

I just don't get the anti-Shane gang in the comments treating him as guilty until proven innocent. People on the mgoboard just can't wait for him to be replaced, and refuse to consider he could possibly grow into a good quarterback with (finally) good coaching. I'm rooting for him to succeed, but I feel like that sentiment is in the minority around here.
