For some reason, in 1980, the year 2000 seamed really far away in time.
And it was only 20 years.

The year 2029, though 23 years away, just doesn't seem that far off in the future.

Besides, I'm not so daunted by the future, especially after we make it safely through the "Y2K" fiasco.

.......Wait a second.. that was a number one pop hit in 1970 by Zager and Evans "In the Year 2929" check it out (and I don't think we had tofu then and in fact Willow Glen was it's own incorporated city..and not part of San Jose)


Willow Glen became its own municipality in 1927, but its independence was short lived: The city decided to unincorporated and voted to become part of San Jose in 1936 It was Willow Glen that wanted to become part of San Jose and not the other way around.

Here is more 2029 news
San Rafael, CA has annexed San Quentin Prison and immediately released all prisoners as a gesture of liberal compassion. San Rafael residence took up a collection and bought bus tickets to Oakland for each prisoner, not wanting the prisoners to linger and become part of San Rafael's community. San Rafael's mayor Steven Carry said that the old prison would be converted into a University of Isms, teaching Liberalism, Socialism and Snobism along with a vocational course for the communities many pot-smoking discarded children. This course will consist of a two week relaxed learn as you go vocational training in the art of Hot Tub maintenance.
Mayor Carry said since back in 2009 when President Hillary Clinton declared that all illegal Mexicans are now US Citizens there has always been a shortage of Hot Tub maintenance people. Carry also added that he hoped the new illegal Talaban immigrants would take advantage of the lack of lawn care and hot tub maintenance people in his Marin County community.

Steve last night I did go to a 2029 party.......... how very boring it was, I had sex with 15 people who's gender was obscure to the point I didn't know which end was up "what's the use?". I know I swore off recreational drugs but I had to take a "downer" just to get my pants back on. and even then it was difficult to get into a cab.
What ever happened to the good old days back in 2016 when you had sex with just 5 or 6 people and you even knew there names.............. Going home that night I thought what's the use of taking my longevity pill? I'm getting a little tired of being 146 years old. it's just not fun anymore. Perhaps I'm just getting old.

Steven:
I am perplexed by your puzzlement, namely Jamaica's invasion of France. I sense you to be a Berkeleyite and wonder where you were during the compulsory class "Overthrow your Government 101"
I nether have the patience nor the desire to bring your education up to pare with that of BT's.
I will give you a few clues for you to answer your own question.....Six out of ten Jamaicans are Rastafarians ...... the Jamaicans believe that Haile Selassie's last dyeing wish was that because all of France's coffee was imported from Ethiopia the universal term "French Roast Coffee" be changed to "Ethiopian Roast" and in the mind of a Rastafarian invasion of France was the only way to bring that change about and also invasion of France was, and still is easy.

Steven .
it all depends on you! are you looking for the "Origin Character" of your coffee or is it just "Roast Character"....... Starbucks/Peet's and poor coffee like Folgers all roast to the point where the Roast Character is what you'll be tasting. If that is your idea of a good coffee it then really doesn't matter where your coffer comes from or even the grade of the bean. .................. Your coffee will taste the same year after year crop after crop any country region will do it will all taste the same.............
Me, I roast my own green coffee beans and I, like a wine snob love coffee for it's varietal and Origin Character......... I'll roast my coffee to bring out these flavors. and will never bring my coffee to a dull burnt taste of say a French roast or Italian........... If you buy coffee for its distinct origin qualities, it makes sense that heavy roasting is at odds with revealing the full effect of the differences we can sense in coffee due to distinct origins.................. So that said.....
I believe it's the Origin of coffee not the roast that is important

Listen Mr.Coffee you have already forgot how this started. It was you "roasting me" and saying how french roast was going to become etheopian roast because that is where it came from. The thing was fiction.

Answer me this Mr.Coffee, If it's a known fact that light roast has more caffiene and dark kills flavor, tell me why to me French or Italian are the only roasts that have any flavor and are the only to give me a buzz?

I too roast my green coffee beans. I happen to find Ethiopian Harrar roasted to a light city color to be my favorite coffee in the world. We go to Jamaica every year and bring back Blue Mountain (already roasted) but I look forward to my Harrar. http://www.sweetmarias.com/coffee.africa.ethiopia.html I use both a Zach and Dani coffee roaster and my trusty Whirleypop (popcorn) roaster.
I've met many interesting Rasta's on my many visits and had some great discussions but religion (theirs) is one topic on which I'll quickly change the subject. Jah Rastafari! I just don't get it.

A Whirleypop can be had for less than $20 bucks. Great beans for less than $5. Freshly roasted coffee has so much complexity it's hard to drink store roasted coffee. There was thread a bit back but it fizzled out. I didn't intend to hijack this thread but it seemed to have run its course when you two started in on the coffee The Sweet Maria's site has detailed roasting info but I imagine there are others out there.

Talking Coffee sure sounds good to me and I would love to join you on that subject. I'm right in the middle of packing and will be leaving for Las Vegas in 10 hours I still have to pack, get some sleep and all that jazz........ when I get back in 6 days lets get together here and get a coffee thread going again ...............
Very briefly.......... Ethiopian Harrar roasted to a full city is 33% of my espresso blend
Blue Mountain and Kona are just a tourist thing something to buy as a souvenir. The two are not even close to being a serious coffee. Most of it is phoney stuff and most likely a cheap Brazilian commercial coffee. ........... see you later, I'm off to the NASCAR races in Las Vegas...

Frank, you obviously missed the significance of my New York travalogue. The dumplings were not only wonderful, they were $0.25. It's easy to understand your mistake because I never heard of such a pricew for them in the Bay Area either--but that's New York. And if you had read carefully, I made the pilgrimage to Katz's, but frankly as my taste buds atrophy with age they demand more FIRE than exists in kosher-style food--but those dumplings dripping with Sriracha!!

Oh, and as I repeatedly said, the Chelsea Papaya was right across the street and I ate their hot dogs 2 at a time, twice a day.

Santana Row's a fire trap--I remember when it nearly burned to the ground--and took part of San Jose with it.

But at least, as a stockholder in Harrah's Entertainment Inc. (HET: NYSE), I approve of your choice of Las Vegas lodging and my mom, as a stockholder in International Speedway, Inc. (Pink sheets: ISCB)approves of your reason for going there.

RE: Headlines from the year 2029: 2006/03/09 04:12:29
Sriracha is that lovely red pepper/garlic sauce from Huy Fong Foods of Rosemead, CA which is near ubiquitous in Asian restaurants around the country. I'm sure you've seen it--comes in big plastic squeeze bottles with a rooster on them. In the NYC dumpling places they seem to mix it with some extra vinegar (but no soy)--it already contains some vinegar-- as a sauce to be liberally applied to everything. Yum.

It's a wonder how these threads morph. And you like what you like. But I will say that some of the Asian markets in San Francisco have dozens and dozens of chili and chili garlic sauces, all different and one might prefer any of them. Sriracha isn't the best for, say cooking, but it happens to be what an awful lot of Asian places, including ones where you might be the only English-speaking person around, put out for table use, especially it seemed, in NYC. In San Francisco, home-made hot chili oil on the table might actually be more common but I've seen Sriracha a lot too. I am always fairly suspicious of anything labeled "spring roll sauce" or associated with any one food. Most Asians who've been eating these things from birth mix their own dipping sauce from a few basic sauces including some version of either a chili or chili/garlic sauce, hot chili oil, soy, vinegar, maybe fish sauce and so on. I do too. And some days I feel like a different mixture than another. Normally for dumplings I use about equal amounts of soy, hot chili oil and vinegar but I have to admit that the Sriracha/vinegar sauces offerred by the several NYC dumpling places I tried was awfully good.
