Coffee Perking on a camp stove. March 12, 2017September 12, 2020 by usathroughoureyes There is nothing better than the sounds and smell of coffee perking on an outdoor camp stove. Can we offer you a cup?

Sometimes all we want is a single coffee and it would be nice to be able to change to espresso. Thanks for the tip Tobias. How’s that jeep doing? LikeLike I love coffee, but I make mine using an Aeropress. It saves time if you’re the only coffee drinker, plus you can make espresso.

You must have been talking to my mate because when I looked up the definition of “hard headed” my picture was there, lol. I think I’m getting better though, lol. LikeLiked by 1 person And still, we fail to listen so many days of our lives. Are we hard-headed or WHAT?! xx, mgh LikeLiked by 1 person Yes the accomplishments would be incredible and in some ways it is. I like your thought on how we expect so much God “when we aren’t willing to do…”. I think we have this flawed belief that we deserve and therefore don’t do our share. When we talk with folks on the road and hear their wonderful stories the winners all have the same theme… hard work, perseverance, hope and faith. LikeLiked by 1 person Imagine what we could accomplish if the world were set up to be brain-science friendly! We humans expect an awful lot from God when we aren’t willing to do our share. 🙂 xx, mgh LikeLiked by 1 person Love the article about “…habit creation…” Truly believers in what you cite. It is amazing how industry can function. Most likely because we humans are incredibly designed. LikeLiked by 1 person lol. LikeLiked by 1 person Awesome. It will be a bit because we have had many request these past couple days, lol. LikeLiked by 2 people LOL, we’re sorry Judy. We had to run out for more coffee. We’re up to our 25 pot now with so many wanting a cup. Did you want a cinnamon bun or Danish with your cup of coffee? LikeLike Sure. I’m waiting. 😊 LikeLiked by 1 person Oh, yes! LikeLiked by 2 people Never say no to either. Some policies in life are strict. LikeLiked by 1 person Smart. Sleep deprivation for hostage training? Service related, I hope, but I’d be interested in the story behind that experience. Office email – big problem! Text below from one of my earlier articles [10 Best Practices for Habit Creation – Part 1] ~~~~~~~~ “According to a study of digital distraction by Gloria Mark, University of California … it takes an average of 23 minutes for the average office worker to return to the original task after an interruption.” (at the same level of concentration, she means here – task shifting) Here’s the kicker: that average office worker has only about 11 minutes before the next interruption. Kinda’ makes you wonder how industry runs at all, doesn’t it? 🙂 xx, mgh LikeLiked by 1 person We’re glad you like ours. We have learned that long is not always good when it comes to videos. In class they taught to stick to less then 3 minutes for a news video and we use to scoff at that, now we understand it. We too read fast and think it is a carry over from the work world when arriving mornings and have 100 emails to digest and respond to along with memo’s and minutes to review, before the day really got going, etc…. We know sleep is soooo important but wow we always think what more we could have done if we didn’t have to, lol. We remember some of the sleep depravation exercises we had to go through for hostage situations to learn how to adjust and stay focused when the brain and body didn’t want too. Sleep is so important so we let our bodies dictate in order to be more productive. LikeLiked by 1 person I know. I could read or take classes non-stop, never sleeping, eating etc. and still not get to most of what I want to learn. That’s why (except for pretty ones like yours) I avoid videos for the most part. I can read at least four times faster than they can talk! When info is only (or primarily) available in that fashion, like some of the gluten info or TED talks, for example, I have to run them in the background while I do something mindless like neatening unless they are so complex or novel I must take notes (rarely) to remain focused through my impatience. Same with podcasts. I enjoy the “chat” portions, but I have so much else to DO. What I find most interesting about food sensitivities is the time lag. i.e., today’s brain fuzz (or migraine, even) may be linked to the cake at the birthday party several days ago. Tough to make those connections until you get rid of the suspect food for several months and note you haven’t had any problems of a similar sort during that time. Even so, it’s a tough sell. Especially with gluten – and especially when symptoms fade only over time. Is your niece “sensitive” or celiac? xx, mgh LikeLike Yes, we do a pot in the morning too as we’re doing our wake up time. Something about sipping it and nibbling on something healthy or at times not so healthy. Hey, we’re cutting back on the doughnuts, lol….. We look forward to the articles on gluten free. We have a neice that cannot eat gluten products and its amazing how there are so many products out there allowing one to prepare great meals with out the gluten. The ole saying, “you are what you eat” has lots of merit and has made me realize along with a circle of others I worked with that pay attention to the foods we eat today because tomorrow they WILL come back to haunt you. We’re sure it will take more then one article to cover the topic but we like the way you condense knowledge into bite size chunks that stick with us. When topics like this are reviewed it spurs one to look further into the topic. Not enough hours in the day though to keep up on all the topics we want too. LikeLiked by 2 people Goooood to the last drop…everytime. LikeLike Then we’re gonna serve you up a second cup and add a croissant to the moment too if that’s okay. LikeLiked by 1 person Its fun isn’t it creating and preparing meals on two burners and hoping they turn out, lol. Something about being outdoors that makes you want to double everything, lol. LikeLiked by 2 people This reminds me of the times we used to go camping regularly. I’m not a coffee drinker, but I love waking up and preparing the propane stoves for some breakfast. LikeLiked by 2 people Which sane person would say no to coffee? LikeLiked by 2 people Good looking coffee pot! I bet the coffee was good! LikeLiked by 2 people I love my POT of coffee – lol. I’ve been researching gluten in prep for a couple of articles for Celiac awareness in May. According to the experts, gluten *always* tears “holes” in the gut lining. But the entire lining regenerates every 3-7 days unless “toxic load” reaches a certain point and compromises the immune system to a point it is unable to recover rapidly enough to forestall problems (big problems in the brain, I’m learning!!!) However, there are infants formerly dx’d with colic who actually have what the medical & science field no officially labels “non-celiac gluten sensitivity” severe enough to mandate a gluten-free diet. Unfortunately, *most* doctors-down-the-street rely on blood tests (which can ONLY diagnose Celiac Sprue) or are still unaware that the old 1-factor immune ID tests aren’t reliable enough to diagnose NCGsensitivity – returning false negatives in *most* cases, btw. There is currently only ONE lab that has developed a 10-factor test that catches the majority of – but still not all – markers indicating a problem with gluten. It’s a complex issue, so I’m not sure how well I’ll be able to cover it on a few blog posts, but I do plan to give it a good college try. After my initial research some years ago I banished gluten hoping for any help at all with sleep and ADD – and the more I learn, the more rigorously I banish for a TON of other reasons. xx, mgh LikeLike 🙂 LikeLike Ahhhh we can relate to that hope of losing a few. LikeLiked by 1 person Ahhh gluten free. Does gluten allergies happen later in life too or is it a from birth thing? Each week we experiment with the variety of coffees out there. It is a treat for us and when we go out. We’ll have to try Frangelico and Bustelo. I love my cup of coffee. LikeLiked by 1 person lol! Ahhhh whos counting, lol LikeLiked by 1 person Oh, yeah! Not many calories in virtual crumpets! LikeLiked by 1 person Gluten free, so no cinnamon bun for me, boo hoo. I love hazelnut anything, especially the occasional jot of Frangelico in an evening coffee. Since my first intro at a Puerto Rican owned NY deli in my early 30s, my go-to has been the hispanic Bustelo that most Americans consider espresso, tho’ I brew it as strong coffee and drink it black. I’m out right now and making do with a pale imitation, but any brewed coffee is downed gratefully on this cold and rainy day. xx, mgh LikeLiked by 2 people No pastry thanks I still have a few pounds to take off. ( a FEW pounds?? haha) LikeLiked by 2 people 😉 LikeLiked by 1 person Sounds great… just the way I like it too. Would you like a crumpet to go along with it and a tad of butter?

We are happy to be getting to know you and chatting. Wish we were experiencing your weather here. A week or so ago it was 68 and then came the crash back to the very cold single and low double digits. What kind of Spring flowers do you have? LikeLiked by 1 person Ooh, yes please! I have a friend with whom I share virtual coffees now and then. We always begin – And what would you like to say if we were really sitting across a table together…….. Today, I would like to tell you that the sun is shining on our Spring flowers and the rain which has been falling for weeks has finally abated.

We like the perk when camping… something about the grounds at the bottom of the cup that add to the outing, lol.

LikeLiked by 1 person Coming right up, how about a pastry with it, lol. It had been a few years since camping but when we did our Sept. trip there was a “ah-ha” moment when we realized missing it. We had become so comfortable with all the creature comforts of life and as you know camping makes one get back to the basics, i.e. that simple cup of coffee that soothes the beast within.

LikeLiked by 3 people Never in my life have I said no to a cup of coffee (unless it’s instant coffee, of course, which has always tasted like wheat juice to me). Since we’re miles apart, I guess I’ll simply have to fix my own to join you. And I most certainly will! Don’t forget they are making us play with the clocks again tonight. xx, mgh (Madelyn Griffith-Haynie – ADDandSoMuchMORE dot com) ADD Coach Training Field founder; ADD Coaching co-founder “It takes a village to educate a world!” LikeLiked by 2 people Does it make me a bad camper if I’ve never had it percolated?
