    My machine worked this morning. You have to push the button just right....

    SS funnel and quart measuring "cup" will be here today which will allow me, I hope, to make my own dripolators. If I keep saying dripolator, I am going to have to wear a funny Roman hat, have a space ship looking like a V2 rocket, carry a ray gun, travel to Mars, and have it out with Bugs Bunny.

    My fil raised his own pigs and chickens. If the pigs didn't have at least two inches of fat on their backs they were'nt ready to slaughter.The chickens were so fat they couldn't run when it was their time. He cooked EVERTHING in pork lard. If there was'nt a pot of rice on the stove it wasn't time to eat. When the doctors ran blood tests after a truck pulled out in front him they did a second colesterol test because the first one was so low they thought the lab had screwed up. It was something like 45 for his LDL. The doc asked about his diet, and he told him rice and gravy with beans on the side. He ate beans that he grew in his garden every day. He grew so many different varities tha he could eat a differant bean each day.They were like the pot of rice, no beans then it's not time to eat. He lived to be 95 and ate the same food that would have the rest of us under the knife. The only time he didn;t have rice and gravy with beans was when he had FRIED pork, chicken, or fish. All fried in pork lard. I pop the two colesterol pills everday,right after I eaat my beans with supper.

What you eat is absolutely important but unless you are working it out, my friend the heart doc says we are kidding ourselves.

    In fact, he says his experience shows the determining factor of how well a person does, post heart attack or blockage is the amout and type of cardio exercise they do. Diet is important, yes...but.
    6dogs, I agree with you but we are both WRONG! Yes, we are proven wrong by science yet again.

    "Sponsored by the World Health Organization, the INTERHEART study you point out was indeed a monumental undertaking, trying to tease out modifiable risk factors for heart attacks across populations in more than 50 countries on every inhabited continent. They concluded that more than 90% of the risk of our #1 killer is attributed to things we can do something about, like eating fruits and vegetables every day.

    The most important risk factor by far was cholesterol twice as important as exercise followed by smoking. The designated discussant at the European Society of Cardiology Congress, where the results were first reported, lamented œankind is doing a good job of killing himself. Their follow-up study, called INTERSTROKE, published in 2010 concluded that 90% of strokes were preventable as well."

    What about the INTERHEART study on heart attack risk factors? | NutritionFacts.org


    Brin - I like the Quote: "All plants move, they don't usually pull themselves out of the ground and chase you!"

    M. E. Race, you fil's diet sounds just like my grandpa's, he died at 63 after a long battle with heart disease. If we could just find that gene or whatever your fil has, that a small % of people have, that keep them immune from heart disease no matter what their diet is. If ...if...if

Ye have to be real careful or you spill water all over the place. Seems like I hear/read a review years ago complaining about that spout.

    I put the coffee basket in the SS funnel, the funnel went into the SS coffee pot and I started pouring water. It took a few times pours to avoid overfilling the basket which I expected. Coffee was pretty good and the dripolator only cost me $5.01.

    Penny saved is a penny earned.

    JD just showed up with our new lawn mower. Glad I saved a few dollars on the coffee maker so I could pay for the lawn mower! To save more money, I might have to cut back on the trips to Mars....
