Did somebody say buffet?

So you're no longer in the place that Tom, Peter and I saw at the homecoming bash in 2010?

Does the new place have anything nearby that can compete with the Chinese buffet restaurant that you took us to? grin

JP, I sold that house last August. There is a Mandarin Restaurant in Barrie which is about 15 minutes from where we will be moving to...the one I took you guys to is the headquarters, it's larger than their other restaurants, but they all have the same menu. On your way up the 400 to Axiom, you may have seen the Barrie Mandarin on the east side of the highway. Dammit....I'm gettin hungry....

I think we stopped at the beer store in Barrie.

It was next to Timmie's.

In Canada, everything is next to Timmie's.

I didn't think the Duramax got that kind of fuel economy, it's a V8 motor right? I think i will want to spend about 20k$.. maybe a little more..However, hopefully i can find a deal.

Yes, 6.6L. That's doing about 1450rpm in 6th or a steady speed of about 90kph. City driving is a different story but still better than gas. Note I'm talking about imperial gallons so US mpg would be about 1/5th less or around 24 mpg.

Got a sweet deal on a slightly used Rancilio Silvia espresso machine from a seller on Kijiji. Matches perfectly with the Rocky grinder I bought a few weeks ago. Then sold my Saeco Via Venezia to a co-worker not as far down the rabbit hole as I am.

He's happy as can be and I am in espresso heaven! I have some of the Santa Lucia Costa Rican beans Josh from Transcend coffee brewed to win the National Barista Championship. Now to start pulling some godshots...good-bye sleep!

i use 1 Nespresso coffee capsule and run it twice at the "longo" setting, thus making about 220ml of coffee.
the result is by far the best "percolator" coffee anyone has ever tried, with crema that lasts until you see the bottom of the cup.

I was shocked! Very skeptical at first since it was a capsule based espresso system. That was put to rest! Now I use a Nespresso Citiz as my main espresso machine. Such a well engineered piece of equipment. Beautiful crema, consistent cup after cup. That's what I like the most, consistency and extremely easy and fast clean-up.

Once I get low on the starter pack I might try modding the capsules to use with my own coffee.

I’m armed and I’m drinking. You don’t want to listen to advice from me, amigo.

I've had the Nespresso Pixie plus milk frother package since Christmas.

Again, stunning European engineering & made entirely in Switzerland - a rarity these days. At $.68 per cappuccino (I have 1 per day) using Nespresso's pods, it is a bargain especially considering the convenience factor. Their frother is absolutely foolproof as it makes wonderful thick milk foam - way better than I ever made manually.

I manually made cappys daily for 20 years & this little gem beats that hands down...
