Found you through a Facebook post about your beloved Trojan Coffee Pot (I do hope there are neither giant wooden rabbits/badgers, nor malware, lurking in the coffee pot). I love this picture. I am fond of smartphone-camera photography tricks. My DROID 4 is my constant companion, and my tuxedo cat is going to be the subject of much “moonlight” photography.

Wishing you both continued success and more neat everything. Also, plenty of coffee whenever you both need it.
