    Wsully - A Wedding Gift

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi All...

    As some may be aware... *I purchased this said item http://coffeesnobs.com.au/YaBB.pl?num=1273494607 and in true AM and Qld CS community spirit attempted to have some fun with Mr Wsully and his commitment to Coffee roasting and his lovely partner.


    In essence I put up 30% of the cost of purchasing the said item as a small Wedding gift and that would have left Mr Wsully (Coffee roaster extraordinary *;D *as per the BS mag) to cough up the remaining 70% to obtain this roaster. *I could not afford to contribute 100% as my wife would kill me *;) * Now we all know that weddings are a stressful time and one does not want to be spending too much on coffee and dropping the ball as to the real future *;)


    Thus; I attempted to see if other CS members might like to contribute towards the cost of this item; such that Mr Wsully is not placed between a rock and a hard place.... *While playing with his emotions a bit *:D *However my approach and post in the FS topic section; was not seen as abiding of the T&C of CS, thus was removed - Acceptable process .... And I have requested a review....

    However time frames are at stake:


    If any one would like to contribute in any way... Be it beans to play with (needs practice), $$$, or just plain good wishes etc then feel free to *PM me your details etc and I will see that it all gets to Mr Wsully... *

    NOTE: Should enough commit to $ or part there of *;D *( cents will be accepted) and the cost of the unit is reached; then all further offers will be declined.

    Come 10PM Sunday night 16th of may 2010... I will not take any further $$$ offers regardless and will follow up with Mr Wsully as to what may or may not be outstanding between us.


    Mr Wsully, I expect nothing more than the outstanding deserts and a full run-down of your trip to Vietnam and maybe some pics at the next Qld CS gathering *8-)

    TG... Tis a shame about your employment status.. Is there nothing we / the community can do ???

    Mr Wsully will get it - that is the hardware.. *I have it (almost) and I am just making him sweet... *:D


    I would suggest that your offer, while outstanding and commendable would not be accepted.... *There are enough Qld CSers that should be able to step up to the mark re beans... Besides it is the shipping costs that make it a pain. However I will let Mr Wsully have the final comment in public or via PM.

    Unbelievable AM, i cant thankyou enough, TG please dont send the beans, keep em for ya self, its the thought that means the most, thanks mate :)

    Whilst what AM has done is amazing, i dont need anyone to give me anything, ill scrape out of the wedding fund somehow(on the sly) itll be all good.

    AM did this off his own back, thats just the kind of bloke he is, so for those who dont know him or havent met him, or have been shot down by something he said.....this is AM in a nutshell.....


    Thanks Mate ;)

    [edit]Although, wouldnt mind a trip to the snobbery in Geelong! :DJokes ;)[/edit]

    No need for any blurb on me... *It is about true community support, regardless of which side of the river ya live.

    While the majority of us experience many things in life... Most live explicitly buy the rules and do not know; what they do not know and thus can never know nor comprehend...

    It is only when one has truly believed another day will never come and or when one; has taken that from another by design and intent. *That one truly understands culture / community and what giving freely of ones self, *is all about.


    Now when will those deserts be served * ;D

    TG... Will keep a full copy off line for ya :-)

    As to actual real beans..

    I think I have about 1.5kg of some nasty / ugly / mixed sized little one that I am sure are 60% chaff ;D

    Trying to see where I hid them... I reckon we can provide as an exam / test for Mr Wsully to prove he can use the 1600 ;D

    Only a few days till closing time and delivery of said item...


    Ya palms sweaty yet Mr Wsully ;)


    Is not a true passion / calling a blight on ones status in life :-X

    So will it be 2 or 3 sleeps ? * 7 kg of brown from touch down *;)


    Note: AMD was asked to do a personal audition for the understudy roll for the principle, in the Qld Ballet production of Swan Lake... ( note: there can be up to 4 people in this role - as injuries are common place - Last season all got to perform one or more times)

    Needless to say; She is a little excited to be asked (no mass auditions) and in addition the off chance she may have to actually be out there *8-)


    We need quality deserts to celebrate *:-X

    In the mean time I am off to pick up some RED frogs... Times are bad *:D


    I went out... I needed something.... 1/4 of a pack of Red Frogs left :o

    Mr Wsully

    Trust the weekend and all the preps are moving along nicely... That PM had sounds of desperation *;D :D

    Now when ya clearing up and getting things all cleaned out... *

    Find those couple of piggy banks full of *gold coins and get ready for Monday morning.



    PS. *I will advise of the 4 or 5 well wishers and you can thank them directly....

    PPS. TG; we just lost another 35% of our client base yesterday; 70% off the books in 3 months... Will be an interesting next 6 months or sooner... *1/3 FTE needed but 2 FTEs onboard.

    Re: Wsully - A Wedding Gift (contributions welcome)

    Well what a day...

    1: Coffee at the Vs

    2: KK and Wife picked on me

    3: Daughter was just into the Daft Punk sound tracks and telling Barista stories


    So a call to FF0000 and we call in to collect *;D

    13th floor of a set of flats and the lift does not work... * :D ;D *

    Na, it was not that bad, but parking was *;D :o

    AM with a crook knee... Lead slivers can be a pain... Sometimes ya just ignore and they get compressed some more... Those that have been coated in fibrous material are harder to deal with...

    Mr WSully *- The unit comes with personalised dints and blood stains..

    Have repaired the BOX... *(PS. Andy... Should the box sound like its full of of Xmas decorations )*


    I will advise Sunday evening as to what ya need Monday morning..


    For any other CSér that may be interested - Still opportunities available ...

    Re: Wsully - A Wedding Gift

    The collection for Mr Wsully leaving.... Errrr I mean Wedding has been closed 1hr early and the thread will be locked.

    Mr A...a...g...

    My self and the other public spirited people offer our *heart felt thanks.. (they do not know it yet)

    A true benefactor in many ways... And ya not even from QLD *:o


    The Future Mrs Sully may not be so impressed... So I made sure that Mr WSully could contribute a little to [s]his[/s]their wedding gift.

    I will do up a card for them both ( will see if my wife can hand make something special.. I will contribute coffee stains) and it shall have your CS names on the card (you know who you are)

    I was going to wrap it... But something tells me that; is may not be such an ideal approach, in this case. *I still have to pack it with bubble wrap, so that it does not jingle so much... Sure hope it still works *;D :D ;)

    Thanks you.
