A sleek addition to the kitchen island or breakfast bar, this stool lends your space eye-catching style as it creates a place for your guests to kick back.

A low-backed saddle seat wrapped in faux leather completes the look as it offers you and your guests.

Now we can try sending commands to the module via a bluetooth device. Firstly disconnect the power to the HC05 module and then reconnect it. You should see that the flashing rate of the LED is much faster - this means it is now waiting to pair. On your smartphone, open the Arduino Bluetooth Controller app and find the HC05 module. If you haven't changed the name it will likely be called HC05 or similar. When given the options of how you would like to connect, select Terminal mode. Now try sending some numbers and text and seeing if the serial monitor on the PC reports that they have been received. Hopefully they have so we can move on, if not there are plenty of instructables that might give you a few hints (https://www.instructables.com/id/Bluetooth-Hc-05-W... for example).

To say that the glass arrived safely would be a gross understatement and not nearly respectful enough considering the care and packaging that went into shipping this ~80lb piece of tempered glass. Not only was this amazingly easy to order, it was finished exactly as I requested and it fits perfectly. Thank you very much and please consider me one of your new unpaid field sales people.


Chinese table settings are traditional in style. Table setting practices in Japan and other parts of East Asia have been influenced by Chinese table setting customs.[9] The emphasis in Chinese table settings is on displaying each individual food in a pleasing way, usually in separate bowls or dishes. Formal table settings are based upon the arrangements used in a family setting, although they can become extremely elaborate with many dishes. Serving bowls and dishes are brought to the table, where guests can choose their own portions. Formal Chinese restaurants often use a large turning wheel in the centre of the table to rotate food for easier service.
Demographics bear this out: 30% of those between the ages of 20 and 29 will now spend time abroad; less than 60% of Americans now live in the same state they were born in. That may seem like a lot, but according to US Census Data, it was almost 70% in 1950. General mobility is up, in part because the time between graduation from high school or college and “settling down” is expanding: The average age of marriage has risen to 27 for women and 29 for men (in 1990, it was 23 for women and 26 for men in 1990), and the average age of motherhood has risen from 24.9 (1990) to 26.3; the average age to purchase a house has risen to age 33.

BEST ANSWER: The wooden grip is easily removed - it's tied on with the leather strap. as long as you keep water off the leather, the grip and leather will last for some time. I haven't personally used a dishwasher to clean it and would be hesitant to do so as the Chemex itself is bottom heavy (top heavy, if you turn it upside down). Serious Eats says that if you do use a dishwasher to clean a Chemex that you should rinse it several times afterwards... hope this is helpful.

Dating to the 1970s, coffee has been incorrectly described by many, including historian Mark Pendergrast, as the world's "second most legally traded commodity".[136][137] Instead, "coffee was the second most valuable commodity exported by developing countries," from 1970 to circa 2000.[138] This fact was derived from the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development Commodity Yearbooks which show "Third World" commodity exports by value in the period 1970–1998 as being in order of crude oil in first place, coffee in second, followed by sugar, cotton, and others. Coffee continues to be an important commodity export for developing countries, but more recent figures are not readily available due to the shifting and politicized nature of the category "developing country".[136]

Still, it’s those people — people like me and my damn West Elm couch — who are driving the future of the furniture market: People who fancy themselves unique (and, to be certain, far more unique and tasteful than their parents) even as they purchase the same furniture as their peers. It’s a fantasy of taste and uniqueness, not a reality of one, and savvy brands like West Elm know just how to tickle it.

Hm...this gross story reminds of a scene from Joseph Wambaugh's cop novel "The Choirboys." At a drunken party (there's a pool and the rowdier element are swimming nude) a disgusted female officer strips off her wet bikini bottom and just wearing a robe, sits down on a table...a GLASS table. She hears weird sucking noises coming from somewhere; parting her legs she sees a drunk fellow officer underneath the table slurping her poon through the glass. The outrageous incident becomes part of police folklore and the drunken officer becomes A Legend In His Own Time.
Not all of these plates and bowls would be necessary for one meal. A rice bowl, a soup bowl, two or three small dishes with accompanying foods, and two or three condiment dishes for person would be typical. Various serving bowls and platters would also be set on a table for a typical meal, along with a soy sauce cruet, a small pitcher for tempura or other sauce, and a tea setting of tea pot, tea cups and tea cup saucers.

Setting up bluetooth communication between a smartphone and the Arduino proved surprisingly tricky but there are a few simple steps that will make this much easier. Firstly, you will need to download an app for your smartphone. I used https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.... but there is probably an iphone equivalent (that you have to pay for ;p )
If soup is the first course, to the left of the dinner plate, moving clockwise, are placed a small salad fork to the left of the dinner plate; a large dinner fork to the left of the salad fork; a side plate above the forks; a wine or water glass above and to the right of the dinner plate; a large dinner knife to the right of the dinner plate; a smaller butter knife to the right of the dinner knife; a dinner spoon to the right of the knives; a soup spoon to the right of the dinner spoon.
Coffee is bought and sold as green coffee beans by roasters, investors, and price speculators as a tradable commodity in commodity markets and exchange-traded funds. Coffee futures contracts for Grade 3 washed arabicas are traded on the New York Mercantile Exchange under ticker symbol KC, with contract deliveries occurring every year in March, May, July, September, and December.[133] Coffee is an example of a product that has been susceptible to significant commodity futures price variations.[134][135] Higher and lower grade arabica coffees are sold through other channels. Futures contracts for robusta coffee are traded on the London International Financial Futures and Options Exchange and, since 2007, on the New York Intercontinental Exchange. 

A mattress, a few items under $200. Other respondents received some items from their families: One woman, age 27, “inherited a lot of furniture on its last legs (old chairs, a twin-sized futon chair, my childhood bedroom set)” and “slowly built up the rest from Ikea and scrounging around”; a 26-year-old woman who first moved to Madison, Wisconsin, said, “I bought a big dresser with a mirror at a garage sale, dug my childhood desk out of my parents’ house, bought an Ikea couch and Target coffee table, and set up a kitchen table I was handed down from my cousin.”

This is really great. It’s got my vote. And thanks for giving cred to Greg Klassen’s excellent work. I'll definitely be trying something like this out. Hopefully it's obvious to folks that those C-channel braces underneath are critical, and that plate glass should probably not be be used as a structural component (despite my doing things like this... - but hey, its 3/4":)
In all seriousness, I have heard versions of the above rationale, in various guises, on many an occasion. And, there are elements of truth to each point (ish). Of course, within design there are no totally exacting, hard-and-fast rules but rather, design codes that we generally adhere to/advise on. The coffee table, however, is largely a no-brainer and should be a welcome addition to your space.
Coffee beans must be ground and brewed to create a beverage. The criteria for choosing a method include flavor and economy. Almost all methods of preparing coffee require that the beans be ground and then mixed with hot water long enough to allow the flavor to emerge but not so long as to draw out bitter compounds. The liquid can be consumed after the spent grounds are removed. Brewing considerations include the fineness of grind, the way in which the water is used to extract the flavor, the ratio of coffee grounds to water (the brew ratio), additional flavorings such as sugar, milk, and spices, and the technique to be used to separate spent grounds. Ideal holding temperatures range from 85–88 °C (185–190 °F) to as high as 93 °C (199 °F) and the ideal serving temperature is 68 to 79 °C (154 to 174 °F).[102] The recommended brew ratio for non-espresso coffee is around 55 to 60 grams of grounds per litre of water, or two level tablespoons for a 5- or 6-ounce cup.[103]
In 2016, Oregon State University entomologist George Poinar, Jr. announced the discovery of a new plant species that's a 45-million-year-old relative of coffee found in amber. Named Strychnos electri, after the Greek word for amber (electron), the flowers represent the first-ever fossils of an asterid, which is a clade of flowering plants that not only later gave us coffee, but also sunflowers, peppers, potatoes, mint – and deadly poisons.[53]

Rapid growth in coffee production in South America during the second half of the 19th century was matched by growth in consumption in developed countries, though nowhere has this growth been as pronounced as in the United States, where high rate of population growth was compounded by doubling of per capita consumption between 1860 and 1920. Though the United States was not the heaviest coffee-drinking nation at the time (Nordic countries, Belgium, and Netherlands all had comparable or higher levels of per capita consumption), due to its sheer size, it was already the largest consumer of coffee in the world by 1860, and, by 1920, around half of all coffee produced worldwide was consumed in the US.[40]

Depending on the type of coffee and method of preparation, the caffeine content of a single serving can vary greatly.[179][180][181][182] The caffeine content of a cup of coffee varies depending mainly on the brewing method, and also on the coffee variety.[183] According to the USDA National Nutrient Database, an 8-ounce (237 ml) cup of "coffee brewed from grounds" contains 95 mg caffeine, whereas an espresso (25 ml) contains 53 mg.[184]


Coffee can also be incorporated with alcohol to produce a variety of beverages: it is combined with whiskey in Irish coffee, and it forms the base of alcoholic coffee liqueurs such as Kahlúa and Tia Maria. Darker beers such as stout and porter give a chocolate or coffee-like taste due to roasted grains even though actual coffee beans are not added to it.[118][119]
