Coffee Panic

Photo: dievca 11/2018

dievca is out of coffee….until she thought about it and remembered the espresso.
There was a good 2-3 minutes of panic.

Alessi Moka 6 Cup espresso

dievca hasn’t cleaned and seasoned her new and larger espresso maker (6 Cup Alessi Moka), she was thanking the gods that she still has the little guy with the melted handle.

Whew…at least dievca didn’t have to work this morning before she heads to Jury Duty. Getting a coffee at 5:30 am on the street is tough.
BTW, it is the 2nd to last day of GJ. Apparently you cannot bring alcohol to the Jury Room for a finishing celebration – it was asked. dievca was thinking Prosecco.

Love to you, may your coffee come early and excellent.


“Coffee is Served”


Good Morning!


Coffee Cups of NYC

A fun way to investigate the neighborhoods of NYC would be to find the local Coffee Shops that are original to the City. dievca is sure it would be tricky and take a lot of planning + subway travel, but perhaps using these coffee cup posters from Knowlita would help:

Posters of the Coffee Cups of NYC, Knwolita and Henry Hargraves and Massimo Mongiardo

Hmmm, dievca just figured out that we will have to use the digital options as a guide because the limited edition prints are sold out…bummer.


No Jury Duty today, just regular work and taking a moment to honor our Veterans – Thank You.

Our Family isn’t considered a “Military Family” but we’ve got it covered for Military Service:
Purple Hearts, Honorable Discharges, ROTC, Military Academies, etc.

Let’s see, a number of DD 214 Alumni and a some active duty members:

Air Force (Korea)
Army (Vietnam, after Vietnam)
Navy (WWII, Vietnam, after Vietnam, current)
Marine Corps (Korea, Gulf War, current)
Merchant Marines (WWII)
Coast Guard (current)
Military Spouses (former, current)

Good Morning and Thank You to those who served our country.


And here we go….wish dievca luck~

dievca deferred once because of the business trip to Europe in the Summer (and the side trip to Normandy, afterward). she has to show up today. It doesn’t go away easily. (Caregiver, lack of English, Medical Issues)

If you are an American or someone from another country who wants to review what the Grand Jury is – here is a nice article describing the NYC experience (click here). dievca cannot confirm or deny until she shows up today.

And, yes, she served on a regular trial jury about 6 years ago….yeahhhhh. Purse snatch.

A cup of coffee would be great, right about now.
