Good morning everyone. Well at least it still counts as morning for me, because I went to bed at 6am...and got up at noon...so technically, this is morning for me...right? ;)
Ok, still no sunshine in Indiana...the sun is still missing. And the lack of snow...what's up with that?

By Lorelei (Lorelei) on Tuesday, January 10, 2006 - 01:59 pm:

Nothing but sunshine here in the Copper Country today. I will beam some over to you. What the heck were you doing up all night? I would have to sleep for 2 days straight if I did that. Have a couple cups of java and enjoy your day. It is time for my afternoon cup right now. I will join you.

By Lorelei (Lorelei) on Tuesday, January 10, 2006 - 02:01 pm:

Ooops. Sorry about the misspelling of your name. I do need that afternoon cup of java badly.

By WishingIWasInDaUP (Sur5er) on Tuesday, January 10, 2006 - 02:27 pm:

Hey Lorelei...I's a girl...not a sir :) You are too funny without your afternoon coffee boost. But dat's ok...I used to be called 'sir' a lot when I was on duty...those bullet proof vests and uniforms do not compliment a woman's figure ;)

I'm working on a court case involving Indiana courts issuing support orders to truck drivers that are in violation of DOT laws. Yet anudder reason why I hate Indiana, and love Michigan...because this would never be allowed to happen in Michigan ;)

By Lorelei (Lorelei) on Tuesday, January 10, 2006 - 05:10 pm:

Thanks for filling me in. Sounds involved. Keep up the good work, but remember to get enough rest.

Ms. Sur5er, I can relate to the long nights! Pulled 18 hr shifts for the last 10-12 days. Yesterday, my ship's drinking water got contaminated w/ seawater and my morning cuppa was quite a surprise-not a good thing to take a big slug of hot seawater first thing in the morning after 4 hrs sleep:(
Yesterday was very foggy w/out coffee. Today I have backup water for coffee and feel ALMOST human...

Seismic Pirate,

What a horrible shock. Nothing worse than
salty coffee. Well, actually lots of things are
worse, but it's still dreadful.

By WishingIWasInDaUP (Sur5er) on Tuesday, January 10, 2006 - 06:06 pm:

Thanks Lorelei and Marc. Sleep? What't that? ;) Marc thanks for all you do to keep us supplied in heating fuels for our homes. Can't imagine going a morning...let alone an entire day, without a cup of coffee. When I had blood work done a couple of years ago, I asked the tech if she was drawing coffee from me :)

By Seismic Pirate (Marc) on Tuesday, January 10, 2006 - 06:47 pm:

Just to make myself feel better I went to a coffee website, sufed all the different beans, coffee and coffee makers, then left a big rant and rave on their discussion board:) Fortunately, in nearly 7 years @ sea this is only the second time I've had to go w/out coffee. The first time a hurricane broke all the coffee pots. You would think that all ships have metal pots instead of glass...

Sur5er, your very welcome. I only wish that finding more was the key to bringing down the prices!

By WishingIWasInDaUP (Sur5er) on Tuesday, January 10, 2006 - 07:37 pm:

Marc, was that the national coffee company, that my hubby drives for that you left the post with? :) The maker of Bunn coffee pots does make an unbreakable coffee pot...metal on the bottom and durable plastic on the top, so you don't get that tinny taste in your coffee ;)
Yikers about the hurricane...personally I think that would be one storm I would rather be on dry land and about a thousand miles away from.

By Seismic Pirate (Marc) on Tuesday, January 10, 2006 - 07:49 pm:

The site was an all-around coffee site that featured all different brands of everything related (even vaguely) to coffee. Most ships have solid metal pots, which is fine since the coffee is generally very strong and nasty, anyway...

Hurricanes aren't so bad in deep water on a big ship like mine (see the photo gallery for my ship). Well, they're not fun, but I just saw the edge of my eighth hurricane (Wilma) back in October. I've always gotten the best sleep during hurricanes-they tend to rock you to sleep, sort of.

Good evening from Mishawaka, IN. Sur5er, It sure would be great to see the sun or get some snow. From the sounds of things it might be thunderstorms overnight. Not very winter like. I finally got back to my desk in the library yesterday. The construction company has really worked hard at getting our library back to what it looked like on Dec. 6. My boss and I are both a little parinoid about water. We hear it in the pipes in the ceiling and start watching for drips. Will take us a while to get over this mess we've had for the last month. One of our check out computers' mother board died from the flood. Mine was checked this morning and looks okay but you never know.

By WishingIWasInDaUP (Sur5er) on Wednesday, January 11, 2006 - 12:00 am:

Charlotte, Glad to heart that your school library has dried out. Nope, no snow...just plenty of rain though. Now if the temps could drop another three degrees...the rain would become snow ;)
