I have two children, and have had one dog a time...enough for me.

All I know is that they beat each other and not me.

You sound very happy, Vince, and I credit those pups for bringing so much joy and love to you.


Iíve been pining for a small teakettle for the Interstate, and finally broke down and ordered a 6 cup, stainless steel one from Vermont Country Store.

I like a cup of tea mid day, and sometimes a hot whiskey of an evening that requires boiling water ...yes, I can and do use the microwave, and can also pull put a saucepan to boil water, but they seem so uncivilized.

There are other small teakettles out there, but they are very modern looking, which is not my style...I love this little one, which suits me, is of excellent quality, and will tuck easily in the under cabinet of the galley.

The longer one travels, the more it becomes about refining the small details...

I found this pattern, and am making a pile of these out of white cotton for the kids and grands.

Going to get some thin red ribbon for hanging them on the tree...

A proper teapot is a sign that a civilized cup of tea is on the way

We carry a similar one at all times..even when we were tent camping! Wife is a Brit, and a proper cup of tea requires the right tools...and water at the right temperature.

I can do without a tea pot, as I like 12-15oz mugs...itís the water preparation I need to feel with greater finesse, for lack of a better word.

My son has an electric kettle or some such thing that brings water to the proper temperature, but Iím not quite that fussy...I do know not to boil nor re-use the water, also prefer loose tea when I am at home.

On the road, I use bags...Earl Grey my most favorite, followed by Constant Comment.

I love when ordering tea at a restaurant when they bring you a pot for your tea, rather than hot water in a cup with a bag...like tea is served in England and Ireland, where they presume you are in for a couple of cups before youíre done.

I think it will be the perfect size for the Interstate, and I will smile every time I use it.

Have used several electric kettles, but our go-to at home is a very old Mr. Coffee-type brewer of indeterminate age used ONLY for getting water to the proper temperature for tea...and for hot water to warm the Dogs' food..(grin)

"Tea, Earl Gray, Hot" is our favorite replicator command around here, but unfortunately, Alexa says she's not programmed for that...so we have to use teabags. Another fave around here is English Breakfast, followed by the old American standard, Lipton..which gets stocked in 204 bag bulk boxes from Costco or Sam's Club...

Funny thing about restaurant tea in the little pot--even tough it's usually Lipton, somehow it tastes better...fresher, perhaps. Don't know.

But yeah, we go through a LOT of tea...

Years ago, when I was almost exclusively a tea drinker...before Doug converted me to coffee ...I made my morning tea in one of those small, 4 cup coffee makers, putting tea in the paper filter where coffee would ordinarily go.

Delicious, and loose tea just tastes better than bagged.

It gets more difficult to find loose tea in the grocery stores, so when I do I stock up....itís not going to go bad.

Much of our loose tea comes from Asian markets. Grand variety of flavors and qualities can be had there.

Sadly, our other source of good (but pricey) loose tea, the Teavana website is going away, and I'm not sure the stores are surviving this change either... We've stocked up on favorites...

Maggie; Dana has a silicon sauce pan and tea pot that has a metal bottom and folds. I can be used on the stove or hot plate. She got them on Amazon. $??? She carries them in the A$.

I saw the silicone teapot, but just couldnít wrap my head around that.

I think Iíll be very happy with the stainless steel one, which is sturdy, simple and rather old fashioned looking...I like.
