Coffee Legend

Coffee Legend (8/8)



  1. An Elderly Irish lady visits her physician to ask his advice on reviving her husband’s libido.What about trying Viagra?” asked the doctor.Not a chance” she replied. “He won’t even take an aspirin.Not a problem,” said the doctor. “Give him an Irish Viagra.What on Earth is Irish Viagra?” she asked.It’s Viagra dissolved in his morning cup of coffee. He won’t even taste it.Let me know how it goes,” he said. She called the doctor the very next afternoon. How did it go?” he asked.Oh Jesus Doctor, it was terrible. Just horrid, I tell ya! I’m beside myself!Oh, no! What in the world happened?” asked the doctorWell, I did the deed, Doctor, just as you advised. I put the Viagra in his morning coffee, and he drank it. Well, you know, it took effect almost immediately, and he jumped straight up out of his chair with a smile on his face, a twinkle in his eye and his pants a-bulging. Then, with one fierce swoop of his arm, he sent the cups, saucers, and everything else that was on the table flying across the room ripped my clothes to tatters and passionately took me then and there, right on top of the table. T’was a nightmare, I tell ya, an absolute nightmare!Why so terrible?” asked the doctor. “Wasn’t the sex good?Freakin jaysus, it was the best sex I’ve had in me last 25 years, but sure as I’m sittin’ here, Doctor… I’ll never be able to show me face in McDonalds again!
  2. o those not giving the Indian coronavirus variant the concern it deserves...Think again.I have a business associate diagnosed with it at the end of last week and he's now in a korma
  3. Does anyone know how long it takes to repair a hearing aid?I sent mine back to the manufacturers and have not heard anything since.
  4. Outcome of a couple of weeks struggling to get things balanced on both a drugs and food intake front is a loss of about 8 Kg. That would be 1 stone 4 lbs. I have not weighed this much since I was at school and would be happy about it if I had any strength worth a damn. Still, Hopefully that will improve. People like me do not do mental distress about anything so when it came along to bite me it was a surprise and I had no idea how to work it out. Rang the local hospice. We will see. Enough of that. Thinking of selling up everything coffee related that I have been buying as retirement projects so if anyone is interested in Mazzer Super Jollys or Mazzer Royals all fitted with dosers but which I had plans to convert to either single dose or on demand. All need work all need Paint . My old but working well Santos is up for sale too. I will try to keep the price as low as I can but at the same time I need to fill the kid's fund pot as much as I can and I do not have many weeks now to do that. Talk to me if any of these might interest you and we can do some sort of listing. I struggle to lift a superjolly can you believe that
  5. A few days in hospital with an infection so now another recovery period needed to re hydrate etc. Each time I am glad to be home but each time I am aware of the things I am losing. Having family around is Guuud medicine
  6. A Norseman is shopping at a supermarket when he comes across an old lady in a wheelchair, almost in tears. "What's the matter?" He asks. "Oh," sobs the old lady. "I want to have a look at the frozen puddings but, as you can see, there are three steps down into the chiller cabinets." "No problem," he says lifting her onto his back. "I'll take you." He strolls through the chiller cabinets with the old lady on his back. She selects several puddings and puts them in the basket he is carrying for her. At the other end the old lady's husband is waiting with her wheelchair. "I'd really like to thank you," says the old lady as he sets her back down in the chair, "but I don't even know who you are!" He just waves and walks off. "I was really worried about you," says the old lady's husband. "What have you been doing?" She replies, "Well, I've been through the desserts on a Norse with no name."
  7. On a serious note: after a day of just not functioning ill, I spent today at derriford hospital getting more scans and am lined up for more radiotherapy Monday. I feel I am now at least half way there
  8. A design that is old as dirt but a very capable machine the Santos 01 is generally the same machine whether for coffee, pepper or poppy seeds or so it would seem looking at this: https://www.santos.fr/media/ftp/sales_leaflets/EN_english/SANTOS_01_leaflet_EN.pdf I have one here somewhere that would still be using if I had not bought my Mythos. I suppose what I am saying is whether spice or coffee I think any half decent grinder would do well but the burrs might be optimised to stop the machine choking. There will be a requirement to clean all areas in contact with the spice/coffee when switching to stop any taint to taste
  9. An elephant and a crocodile were swimming in the Amazon, when the elephant spots a turtle sunning himself on a rock. The elephant walks over to the turtle, picks him up in his trunk and hurls him far into the jungle. "What did you do that for?" asks the crocodile. The elephant answers, "That turtle was the one that bit me almost fifty years ago." The crocodile says, "And you remembered him after all these years? Boy, you sure do have a good memory." "Yep," says the elephant ..... "Turtle recall."
  10. I just realised that Albert Einstein was a real person!! I thought he was a theoretical physicist.
  11. Once upon a time there was a King who was only 12 inches tall. He was a terrible king, but he made a great ruler
