      I saw Mark Lowry (Gaither Brothers) in concert several years ago and one of his monologs touched on atheists.    A great clip — its a little long but well worth the watch.    I know we have another thread talking about today (August 12th, 2021) and how atheists are doing their thing…. and it reminded me of this….

        NEVER, my dear sister, never — until H … freezes over — I gotta have my coffee, it’s the main distance of life. Goodness, if it was safe to hook up intravenously, I’d be there :mdrmdr: :mdrmdr: :calvin — Yohanan just got cold feet for a brief time in history, he’ll be back, they always come back to coffee — smell that Mocha Cappuccino now — hmmmmmmm :mdrmdr:

              Brazil’s Bad Weather Busts Coffee Crop

              7/28/21

              A severe drought, followed by a wave of cold temperatures and frost, has now wiped out millions of bags’ worth of Brazilian arabica beans. The damage is likely to extend to newly-planted coffee trees, creating a knock-on effect that could negatively impact the size of Brazil’s coffee harvests for years to come.

      Y’all are NUTS!!!! I’d NEVER give up my coffee!!! Keep in mind, I live in the deep South and sweet tea is more common than water! ;-)   In the heat of thee day a nice cold glass of sweet tea does the soul good. But never will it replace my coffee!

      Tammie, I know you are much more discerning than to think I would abandon my coffee! You live in the South. You know we drink both :mdrmdr:

        I do love my Sweet Tea (said with the proper emphasis on the Sw and Te), but that morning cup o Jo sitting and watching the grass grow and then the after dinner cup to watch the lightening bug come out and about!!! Can’t beat it man! Just can’t beat it! Faith restored Yohanan – faith restored :mdrmdr:

        Oh and would those nuts be Pea-cans or Pecons :mdrmdr: :mdrmdr: :mdrmdr:

      Yes!! Here in the south we love our coffee….mine is brewed with either 8 oclock or New England Coffee Columbian supremo…yum! with coffeemate french vanilla creamer…..and then in the heat of the day Luzianne sweet tea….but not McD’s sweet- that will give you instant sugar coma :mdrmdr:   and the debate rages on whether or not to add lemon or to have an arnold palmer tea which is half lemonade and half sweet tea… :yes:

        That’s pretty funny Churchgal … you live in the Deep South but love New England brand Coffee. :mdrmdr:

        I never heard of Luzianne’s … is this already in bottles or do you have to brew your own ice tea?

          Lol Geri….yes I was determined to find the best brew coffee and the New England brand definately won! It’s really okay that a midwestern gal (born in Chicago) drinks new england coffee and is also a southern belle…. :mdrmdr: :mdrmdr:

          Luzianne’s is in bags and for brew, I have seen some already in bottles but doesn’t taste quite like the home brew….gotta make sure we have some to go with dinner on the heavenly shores

        So funny story – about a decade ago, I was in a mission trip in Belarus, this was my fourth and final trip … I decided to visit a “coffee” shop— I ordered a cup of coffee. Well they brought me this quaint “shot glass” (a bit bigger), I thought she was kidding, but nope! I asked for cream (I’m a vanilla cream lover too) and the waitress was appalled that I would dare ask, but being an American she complied. So I doctored up my drink, took my first and only swallow, that’s about all there was and good thing — I about gagged and pucked all at the same time, it was overly strong, probably could have walked to me. :mdrmdr: :mdrmdr: :mdrmdr:  Note self, take care when traveling abroad. Not all coffee is equal in all countries. :mdrmdr: :mdrmdr:

      Churchgal, you are a true Southerner! Luzianne is the best tea (and you can buy the super huge bags just for brewing tea), McD tea is aweful!!! It’s, well, its yuck! I’d rather have lemon than Arnold Palmer. For me, it’s too sweet. And here’s a secret for all you iced tea brewers who may not know. To get rid of that back end bitterness add a pinch of baking soda. And one more tip while I’m at it. Adding sugar to cold tea is a waste of everything. It cannot ever be as sweet as tea brewed with sugar. You can add a pound of sugar to cold tea and it will not be a sweet.

        Yohanan — we make “simple sugar syrup” to add to our warm tea and it is fab ….. I also like sun tea — you are right — Mickey D’s tea is yukey :calvin ;

        Another tea tip and coffee too — add a pinch of cinnamon – wha-la no bitter flavor, not even a hint of cinnamon.

        Simple sugar syrup

        1 cup sugar

        1 cup water

        In a medium saucepan combine sugar and water. Bring to a boil, stirring, until sugar has dissolved. Allow to cool or just add to fresh brewed tea, cool — add ice and heaven – ahhhh!

          Thanks for this recipe!   Sounds good with adding cinnamon.  Is this like a 1/2 gallon worth of ice tea or a quart or ….?

          My problem is I don’t have a Mrs. Tea maker … all along I’ve been putting water in a mug and microwaving for 2 minutes and then putting the tea bag in the mug for a few minutes.  So can I still make ice tea with your recipe … and if so … then how many tea bags do you think I need?

            Geri — Southerners — true born :mdrmdr: only always make tea by the gallon, because it only last a day or two!  Most of us don’t like sweet tea toooooo sweet so for my family this is a one gallon recipe.  Again, most true Southerners, do not use a Mrs tea maker either, I boil the tea bags in the water, let them seep and mix up the sugar and water, refrigerate or add ice to drink right away! Some of my Kentucky family add a touch of lemon and some have been known to add a touch of the “Jack” (Jack Daniels) to their glass (probably similar to Long Island Iced Tea). My Tennessee and Virginia family (we are very large – I’m related to the Hatfields and McCoys), like Sun Tea on occasion. You can boil about 2 cups of water in the microwave, add about 5-6 regular tea bags or 2 large ones to this and let them seep for about 1 hour, then mix it up …. Try it you’ll like it :good: ;-)

              Oh Tammie :thankyou  so much for the priceless tea making tips!   So it makes a gallon, eh?   B-)    Do the tea bags ever break from soaking in the water too long?

              Bwahahahaha you’re related to both the Hatfields and McCoys???  I loved that mini series in 2012 with Kevin Costner, Bill Paxton.  Did you watch it?  Was it spot on the mark how they portrayed the events?  Which side of the family do you feel were right?   Aha … glad you mentioned some of those feuding distance family members kept the liquid tea outdoors in the sunshine … what is the difference from being in the sunshine to “brew” vs. in the cold refrigerator?   Does it taste any different or does it speed up the “brewing” process? B-)

                I never watched the series, lived some of that stuff as a kid. I’m actually related to both as my Mom and Dad are third cousins to each other, on from one side and one from the other. Truth be known, neither was right, drunk hotheads is what I was taught! Over a pig, really!!!! And later over moonshine stills, my grandfather had a still  :mdrmdr: smelled an awful lot like rubbing alcohol that was overdone :wacko: Family reunions were a trip, some heavy horse shoe playing, heavy drinking, no guns allowed, seriously! Cousins galore, running amuck.. my grandfather hosted a few and he had a small horse farm, thus my love of horses was born, should have been a large animal vet (I have a few cousins who are).

                As for tea bags bursting, you boil water first, turn off heat and place the bags in to seep. I’ve not ever had bags burst. The sun tea gets just the right tea color and then it’s brought in the chill.
                Hope that is helpful, you gotta try it —- don’t wait too long :prayer-hands:

      LOL … Tammie too funny.  I recall my sister-in-law’s mom (she was like another grandmother to me) was telling me all  her adventures oversees.  She was in Great Britain at the time when Princess Diana got married and was at this restaurant and she asked for coffee with cream.  She meant those little Carnation half and half creamers or Lake O Lakes mini moos.  Well the waitress brings out the cup of coffee with loads of whip cream piled high (like you would do for an ice cream sundae) and the cream was overflowing into the saucer.  :mdrmdr:   Then when she tried to explain what she really wanted … the lady said … oh, why didn’t you say so … that’s called “white coffee” B-)

      Well … all this talk about ice tea … I caved and just went to the grocery store and got some of these … on sale $1.25 each

      Yohanan thanks for the tip in brewing with the sugar … that makes sense the sugar hast to be melted in a syrup form with the brewing … just like when making hummingbird sugar water … I put the white sugar in with the water in a glass measuring cup and turn on the microwave for 2 minutes and then stir and the sugar is now in a syrup format.

      I’m going to be brave and try to brew homemade ice tea …

        I just combine the sugar and water as is. No need to boil it or use a microwave. The hummingbirds like it just fine.

        I do rinse out the hummingbird feeder with hit water and vinegar in between nectar changes, though.

        Yeah no! Does not work that way — you get fatter, cause poor insulin distribution and makes for sweet blood and then sticks to the vascular network and then clots and narrowing happens and then slower blood movement through narrower spaces and then heart failure from difficulty of pumping “thickened and slow blood and should I keep going ….. :calvin   Just remember MODERATION

        Wonder if we will have those food consumption issues with our perfected body — oh I hope not, eat donuts, cakes, yeast bread, pasta meals ….. a great day is coming folks :yahoo:

            LOL … what wild family reunions that must have been!   I wonder “if any” amongst the original patriarch / matriarch families living during 1863 – 1891 family feud years might have gotten saved?

            Because there happened to be Robert Sheffey, an evangelist circuit preacher, that traveled by horseback (during the years 1854 – 1902).  He had a burden for the people living in the Appalachian mountain regions of  S.W. Virginia, Southern West Virginia and Eastern Tennessee.

            So perhaps you could have a few long distance relatives from both sides of the families up in heaven? :yes:
