That ís warm, Randall! Here it's a bit cooler, but also above average. Perhaps next week some nightfrost.

Beautful sunrise this morning here in Indiana. And it's almost warm enough to take my cup of coffee out on the porch. It's supposed to reach the mid 60's this weekend--unheard of! El nino? Have a good day.

Happy "Hump Day", coffee lovers. Although, as a retiree, there is no such thing. Traditions die hard. I wonder who came up with that term?

In case your German is rusty - it's a story of a row between father and daughter about her coffee addiction. He wants to forbid her drinking coffee and threatens to take away her privileges, like visiting friends and buying new clothes. When he says that she won't get a husband then she relents. But she makes it a point of her marriage contract that she'll be allowed to drink coffee....

GC, if those were the words to "Holy" back when I was a Methodist, I might have been able to tolerate the song. By the way, I lasted 12 years as a UU member. I might still be one if not for a divorce (she got the church in the settlement!). Thanks for the laugh.

Chris, I started watching the vidie, but don't have 25 minutes to complete it. Looks entertaining, however! Thanks for sharing.

GC, I like it! I am a former UUer, atheist and all. Ironically, I hate the old "Holy, Holy, Holy" song. As a previous life Methodist, it seemed we sang it every other Sunday.

And let's not forget the Kaffee Kantate!

Happy Thanksgiving to you as well, Randy, and to everyone! (And a sane Friday and weekend!)

"Pecan pie without coffee is a sin!"

There's a hymn that praises coffee -- and doesn't mention any invisible beings! To the tune of "Holy, holy, holy":

Coffee, Coffee, Coffee,
Praise the strength of coffee.
Early in the morn we rise with thoughts of only thee.
Served fresh or reheated,
Dark by thee defeated,
Brewed black by perk or drip or instantly.

Though all else we scoff we
Come to church for coffee;
If we're late to congregate, we come in time for thee.
Coffee our one ritual,
Drinking it habitual,
Brewed black by perk or drip or instantly.

(It's by Christopher Raible, a Unitarian Universalist minister; the third verse is more specifically UU. It's been said, with a grain of truth, that coffee hour is the closest thing Unitarians have to a sacrament.)

Hope all you coffee lovers (and others) have a Happy Thanksgiving. Pecan pie without coffee is a sin!
