Make a fine cup of coffee using the Hario V60 cone dripper

The Hario V60 Japanese cone dripper makes wonderful coffee and is environmentally sound, but it requires more effort and attention to detail than other coffee making techniques. The unique aspect of the V60 that most distinguishes it from other filter drip systems is the large opening at the bottom of the cone. If you try to use the V60 like any other dripper, your boiled water will rush through quickly delivering extremely under-extracted, sour and weak coffee. When you search for V60 hints on the net you will find scores of how-to’s often insisting on very specific and curious details…

Remembering Mo

Mo was only with us for a year or so. Her health had been neglected by her prior owner and by the time she came to us it was too late and she was — unknown to us — in chronic pain.

Mo was a pretty calico chonk. Calicos in general come with a reputation for being bitchy, but her discomforts made her extra sour-tempered and she never made friends with anyone, not our dog or either of the other cats. …

Very beautiful Anne, and well observed!

Another possible avenue for you. A number of photographers study the decay of plants and flowers when they are well past their showy prime. I admit it's an acquired taste, but there's a kind of beauty in decaying nature. The colours become more muted with an emphasis on earth tones. New textures appear in formerly smooth surfaces. Fragility replaces robustness.

I've only delved into this a little, with mixed success so far, but I think it's worth a look.
