Cleaning out the gauze thingmajig is cumbersome, and once in a blue moon I have to unscrew it and wash out the bits of coffee beans that got stuck inside. I never thought of buying a coffee maker machine.

Mind you, you'd have one hell of a job shifting me out of here…  :|

I still can't convince my wife that moving to Ireland after her retirement (at the end of this year) is something we should consider. Something about loving our home and neighborhood and not wanting to move again–ever, or some such ridiculous thing as that.
