prefer a nice cuppa tea ;D

What brand? Single source? Ceylon/Sri Lanka, Indian, China, Queensland? Bag or leaf? Green or black? With or without milk? Sugar or honey?

Had a long lunch which turned into a big night with a 2:00am stumps, with my boss and an overseas visitor yesterday/last night ............ the thought of coffee or tea is surpassed by the need off a greasy hambuger. 

:( I'm getting too old for this kind of behavior.

None of that fancy shit, Liptons teas bag [left in], milk no sugar, nearly as good as a ice cold beer on a hot day :)

No Hipster cred there at all. Hopefully, at least you drink it out of an old jam jar.  :o

Getting old: I have just reached age that is enough for vehicles to be registered as museum vehicles in Finland
if they are on acceptable condition to it. It's kind of rivet counting to be accepted.

I have found most people who say they don't like tea have tasted that cheapest yellow Lipton bag tea that seems to be available everywhere. In my opinion that's probably the worsest tea available. Lipton makes also very good tea but they are some certain grades and definitely not that cheapest yellow grade.

Personally I prefer Twinings and some other brands and some certain grades. No tea bags, tea inside them is made of dust that is left on containers. Simple recipe to succeed is to use thermostat based machine to make tea. Green tea needs lower temperature but the standard temperature found from tea machines suits to all every grades. Without thermostat the taste varies or needs a lot of attention.

Taste usually get acrid if too much temp.

Correct temperatures are:
-Around 70 Celsius for green tea
-Around 85 to 90 Celsius for most other grades
These vary a littlebit depending on tea grade or method.

I have used ball shaped machine from Lidl almost last 10 years. It still works perfectly. Those are for sale there every now and then. The price is something 15 euros.

Fuck me! I got hauled off in an ambulance at 4am this morning because my heart rate and blood pressure were going off the scale. Reading on cheapo eBay blood pressure monitor was 179/147 and pulse 118  :o. Even though it's a cheap bit of tat, those numbers are way more than I've ever seen on it before (usually in the normal rage). I also felt like shit so I called the ambulance.

Diagnosis was AF (atrial fibrillation). Basically an electrical malfunction. My wiring harness must be getting frayed or something. Spent a few hours in hospital while they pumped drugs into a vein to bring the dials back within range. They sent me home with a pile of drugs and a referral to a cardiologist.

Up until now I've never had any indication of ticker problems. Thought I'd live forever. Now I'm thinking I'd better start getting my affairs in order.

Getting old, fat and unfit is no fun.

Buggar, it's the original design that flawed. Should be redone with better materials.Better watch some more Ice Dancing to take your mind off it.Lots of easy fixes these days.

Maybe you're wiring is getting to thin Cam.

In Brisbane it's been raining for nearly 48 hours, every time I go outside it rains on me.

I'm with you Vince, best just to put the Tele on, kick back and think of England....... not you Cam, that'll get the heart rate up too high ;)
