I've gotten over $200 in cash back from them at places I would have shopped anyway! Ebay, Staples, more! I put it at the top because they ROCK. Basically, you get a kickback from Ebates when buy.com or whoever pays them. Win-win. If you like throwing money away, don't use them!

Wordpress Menus Not Going to the Right Places

After pulling my hair out trying to get a menu item on a non-editable theme to go to the right spot, i.e., '/' instead of '/home' which doesn't exist, is to install this plugin: http://www.fischercreativemedia.com/plugins/quick-page-post-redirect-plugin/ Now, any requests for /home will go to / which is just mydomain.com as intended. Did I save some hair for you? Drop an oh so small donation to me via the Paypal link on the right.

Senseo Coffee Pods : An Alternative, and free pods!


I made this with some pods I got in Baton Rouge, La. at the Indigo Hotel. The machine there wasn't worthy because it just dripped through the pods, essntially using them as a small bag o' coffee. 

Nosirree, I didn't like it.

The other place I've gotten free pods is the burlap bags in hotel rooms that come with some foil packages. I used to ignore these, but then I looked and...SCORE! Free pods.

Now I've got my eye out.

This is a Senseo 7810 that I have a Coffee Duck for use most times.

The Community pods are brewed in Baton Rouge, so they were probably really fresh, and you can see the foam you get. My machine is about 8 years old too.
 
As for the Coffee Duck, it makes a decent cup but with less crema. This is due more to the fact that I have a non-conical burr grinder so the cofee isn't fine and I don't pack it in too tightly. But it does work well and saves a lot of money and time.

Here's the widget with my recommends:

Sorry, but it looks like the Private Reserve shown above isn't sold on Amazon. I guess you'll just have to visit Baton Rouge. :)
