    I've been a "newbie" on this site for 5 years. Doesn't that warrant some kind of prize?

    Well, one doesn't have to participate in the bunfights over iPhones, and IOS 5 (and even, perish the thought, political & social discussions) along with some of the other, occasionally, rather ill-tempered threads to increase one's post count.

    Why, I'll bet if you listened to (and learned from) what Shrink has to say on the coffee threads, (or threads where those of us who love the stuff can be persuaded that it is on topic for us to discuss coffee, its preparation, how to serve it, what grinder to use…..), - and then participated in these threads - your post count would magically increase. Even exponentially…..

    First 'real' prize comes at 10 years. It's a secret though.

    Maybe the prize is avoiding drama and having your sound opinions assailed.. ;)

    I hate to have to be the one who gets to break the news to you, but I think it may be a black t-shirt, the colour preferred by the sort of [ex]-hipster cool coffee-drinking nerds who dwell here.

    Turtlenecks yes, o course, I stand corrected. And in fetching shades of comely black, most certainly.

    However, while for cool climates, turtlenecks might be de rigueur for intellectuals, coffee shop habitués, and alienated youth and ageing hipsters….

    …..perhaps (black) t-shirts are more appropriate for warmer ones.

    These turtlenecks, (and I am nothing if not consistent in these matters as a true devotee of the concept of eternally wearing A Black Turtleneck) are they in wool (lightweight, but of course) or cotton (handpicked & handspun, ethical, organic)?

    They are actually woven from the chin hairs of Andalusian mountain goats. :D

    Oh, wow; brilliant. A level of testing organic obscurity that I have never managed to put on my back……a further sensation (and challenge) awaits me….

    As do I - (I think) - on occasion…...
