Science Experiments

Monday, April 11, 2011 

Home from Afghanistan to find some very interesting science experiments waiting for me.

Yogurt residue grew into a lovely pattern of furriness. Almost makes you want to pet it.

Coffee beans should have been fairly sterile after making coffee, so perhaps the mold there was donor from the yogurt cup.

Whatever was left over in the plastic container seemed to seed a variety of mold types.

A strong dose of bleach and some scrubbing got everything sterile again.

Luxury is Relative

Monday, February 14, 2011 

At the COB, Green Beans  is a real, but essential, luxury. We started our day with a triple cappuccino expertly served up by the unexpectedly named Robert Rodriquez (perhaps an homage) and felt pretty well taken care of.

Coming straight to Dubai is a bit of a culture shock. Indoor palm trees? We had to go off base to see outdoor palm trees.

We did have one bit of green on base…

Red Brick Café, Guelph

Thursday, November 15, 2007

As I’m spending more time in Guelph lately than expected, it has been a very good thing to discover the Red Brick Cafe. They have good food items and excellent coffee. No overheated milk and they know the difference between a cappuccino and a latte. With the favorable (to the US) exchange rate, it is a great deal too.
