Hmmm.... none of Jim ("anotherJim") or Tom ("TomC") or Samuel ("samlaw") are included on that list.... I feel like preparing an AeroPress using Starbucks darkest roast and brewed at 140 degrees.

That's true! Maybe we'll have a separate round just for Team HB (though I know who'd win that... and it isn't me :lol:).

For those who are curious, click here for the current top 20 nominees. We'll pick the winner from this list next weekend and then reset the votes. To keep things interesting, I'm thinking the actual winner will be picked randomly from the top 20 instead of by ranking. That way those who appear in the second or third round will have the same chance in that round as someone who's not make the list in prior rounds.

I would have never thought it. I receive more than I give for sure from HB, but I think that prize is quite exciting, and thanks for votes received HBers!
(Flattered I am) :D
