It surprised me to admit I've become something of a coffee aficionado. I was forced to acknowledge that when, during my annual e-mail in-box dump that there was $90-worth of Amazon gift cards sent to him during past two Holiday seasons (e-mail gift cards must be a boon for retailers; how many people forget about them?). With my decade-old Braun blade coffee grinder on the fritz, I decided to replace it with a burr coffee grinder.
The hell? I couldn't think of anything else? A good book? A movie? Nope. Straight to the coffee grinders to blow the electronic wad.
But it's a fine excuse to resurrect The Bloated Belly, yet again. No apologies for the absence this time, and there won't be any in the future for any dry spells. It's a blog, not a paper-of-record counted on for daily information.
