Thank you all for your compassionate wishes. We are going to wait and see how the weather does later in the week, as one memorial is Friday and the other Saturday. This gives us time to figure it all out. Elizabeth, you are blessed with a beautiful child.
Mike, I just knew she'd like the coffee maker, the instructions just make it sound difficult to operate.
Wayne you talk about computers like they can be worked on.....I know my son does that too. For me if it doesn't work and turning it off and on doesn't fix it then I need serious help.

We all know Wayne is still booting up on a floppy disc. He just talks a good game. Well, he talks anyway.

Great pensive thought and expression. It's one I wish I had taken.

You will need a yahoo acct to view the online version of the email list. Just sign up once and remember to click on "stay connected". You will get all of the messages via email, but there are pictures posted there. Here's a link

groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/RVM2RVM/info
On our family yahoo list forum we set up a generic account for people to use to see and post pictures. There are people out there that don't want a yahoo account. The account was set up and the user name and password was sent to everyone and its free for everyone to use if needed.

Judy, she used it again today and is happy with it. I have one of those Keurig brand reusable filters on order. I've read where some people have had problems with them leaking. Something to do with the top needle not sealing all the way. Hopefully Keurig has solved the problem.

I have 3 different brands of reusable coffee pod thingys for the keurig. the actual Keurig brand one does worst job as you have to remove the inside carrier for the k-cups. The one I like best is called Ekobrew. You can get all different styles from Kroger, Walmart, or Albertsons, one has little paper filters made by Melitta. Just up to personal taste I guess.
Which reminds me when we are without power, we make our coffee with old Melitta drip cone coffee pot. much faster than old percolater.

Not sure, but I have a feeling she will be using her own brand of coffee most of the time, so removing the carrier shouldn't be a problem. You are talking about the reusable pods at Walmart, etc, right? If so, I will keep those sources in mind. Thanks, Judy.

A New Years Ponder from RVM2

Greetings to All RV Mutants

Today I engaged in a little backwards pondering. You might call it reflecting or reminiscing, or just plain looking back. I was thinking about the RVMdom and all of you, and the message I would share for the New Year. What came to mind was a question. Who would have imagined 9 months ago that "Mutant" would become a term of endearment, a greeting, a collective noun encompassing friendship and much more?

As I put my pondering machine in reverse, I couldn’t believe how quickly 2013 had flown by. Like a tree on the horizon quickly becomes a memory lost in our review mirrors, 2013 will soon be gone. It seemed right to ponder how we have come from far and wide to assemble here thanks to a simple philosophy that spans age, gender, RV type and all manner of labels and boxes. We have circled our rigs in the safe harbor of the rainbow because we appreciate that our RVs don't have some things and we don't miss them; and the Journey is the Destination. That my mutant friends is all it takes to make a rainbow and to hold the RVMdom together. We’re united by our common love of our homes on wheels whether we drag ‘em, drive ‘em, or are in the process of making them dragable, livable or drivable. And, let us not forget Mike and Harriet as they work toward their new journey on land. As RVMs we don’t need or miss the worlds boxes and pigeonholes that divide and would interfere with our mutual, and yet personal mutations.

This year we have laughed and cried; ooh'd and ahh'd, welcomed new life into the world, and mourned the passing of friends and family alike. We were and are here for each other, and it is good. It is the way of the mutant. There are now 65 RVMs and we are growing in numbers. We are also growing in the Ommmm-ness of friendship and spirit that is the rainbow, the RVMdom. We are on a journey together and apart, and the mutation is upon us. We have a website (www.rvmutants.com) to grow with us (if the temps cooperate), and our first Grande Curiosity is planned. Several mini-curiosities have been held and more will surely follow. And like I said before, "Mutant" has become, well, you know...

All of you have contributed to the richness of the RVMdom in general, added color to the rainbow, and enhanced the journey Annie and I are on in particular. We are grateful, and can't thank you enough for making our journey easier, more enjoyable, and of course the destination. The mind boggles.

I usually leave important RVM Announcements to our Grand Poobah, RVM1 - Dave - but tonight I'm making the executive decision to announce that 2014 is hereby declared The Year of the RV Mutant! What that means, where it will lead is any mutants guess. But one thing is certain – all roads lead to the Grande Curiosity @ Catherine’s Landing in April. For those of you who won’t be able to attend, I promise there will be lots of pictures taken and shared. Of course those in the witness protection program will have a little black band across their eyes to protect their identity. The mind boggles I tell ya.

Happy New Year Mutants!

RVM2 -- Steve and Annie --

The quest for good coffee: Keurigs

My advice, buy it from Costco. When it croaks within 2 years they will take it back and give you a new one.

If by some miracle it lasts more than two years it is possible to repair. But be warned, getting the case off will be one of the most frustrating things you can ever attempt (other than trying to fully understand the opposite sex). I used a dremel and cut parts of the case just to crack the stupid thing open. I replaced the air pump motor. A couple of months later one of the two solenoids stopped working. Rather than allowing me to rebuild the silly thing a piece at a time my DW went to Costco.

Parts are fairly easy to find on eBay. If you replace the air pump motor replace the solenoids at the same time. There are detailed instructions on how to do the repairs and prevent the same thing happening again. But what they don't tell you is that there are about a dozen different lengths of screws. You might want to label each & every one as you remove them.

If you do take the case off your Keurig do the mods to protect the pump from the leaking solenoid.

We've had two or three Keurigs fail because of the leaking solenoid. It doesn't take long once it starts.

Umm... I already bought the Mini K10 from Walmart and gave it to my GF for a Christmas present. She appreciated the small size as it doesn't take up as much counter space. It has a 1 year warranty. BTW, I don't belong to Costco. Sam's had a larger one for a buck and a quarter.

Muddy, why all the negativeness?
