New coffee love and an ongoing Encore mount project

Posted By on January 25, 2012

I was going to comment on the “more of the same” State of the Union address from President Obama last night and Gov. Mitch Daniels response, but the reality is that I’m getting tired of hearing the same thing again and again. More divisive rhetoric that splits the country and very little hope that we’ll see less government; OR that those in Washington DC will address the deficit, debt and the long term entitlement issues looming on the horizon. I did think that Gov. Daniels delivered one of the better responses that I can remember … and that his inclusion of Republicans as “part of the problem” was big of him (sort of which he were campaigning for the GOP nomination).

But instead of detailing the SOTU, I’m going to mention the coffee creamer and sweetener Coffeemate product that my sister-in-law introduced me to over the holidays (Thanks Claire). If you add a little cream or sugar (or their substitutes) to your coffee as I do, try the all in one creamer. I’m fond of the liquid but am planning to try the powder when on the boat.

Speaking of “the boat,” I’ve been working on the outboard motor teak mount for the stern rail on Encore. I’m not sure it was good idea, but used a little coating of epoxy before finishing to protect the end grain from splitting and the area where the outboard slides on and off. We’ll see if this holds up to the sun and wear.
