Poll still open on the Discussion direction.
- Hi all,
We have so far had 11 members make there feelings known though our poll on the
direction of the discussion of the group. So far its slightly more that would like to discuss
other types of coffee makers as well as the vac. pots.
Of late it doesn't seem that we are overwhelmed by discussions of vac pots either.
Searching for a way to get more intput from our members?
- Hi Larry..
I'm sorry we aren't as active as you'd like us to be. I know what
my excuses are: We don't use very many of our pots and my knowledge
extends to what I like and what I don't like. Even when explained
and given photos, it took me a while to see that the Sunbeam c40 had
an aluminum top as opposed to chrome...or something like that.
I also think at least a few of us would have liked to have found
missing pieces for our pots BUT weren't willing to give up pieces we
had as well...or in some cases like me, wasn't sure enough about
what I had to give up being worth enough to satisfy one of "us".
Ahem...and it's NOT my collection to mess with either...I'm just the
vocal one of the two of us.
Another issue is several of us do have extensive collection and
therefore would be in competition for some of the rarer pots
online. Since I may not mention something we would be interested in
online, I might mention it after the fact and of course I always
love hearing about "finds" everyone else has acquired out there.
Actually I need to hear and see some of these others since how am I
ever going to know I have another pot to lust after? I think it was
Steven's Red white and Blue McKee that I didn't know about until i
saw it in his collection.
Anyway...thanks for creating the site, Larry, and I'm sure we'll
plop along at some sort of pace even if not all day every day. ;-D
and BTW...to add to the "toy collection" we were sucessfull bidders
on a plactic toy set with cups and saucers today and there was a
plastic narrow neck Mckee vac pot with it - they called it a silex
but it looked Mckee to me. Very cute...now our grandchildren
can "brew coffee" for their little friends just like Grandma and
