Welcome To My Blog!

I'd like to first say "hello" to everyone. I must lay down a single rule, and it's commonly known by many as the Golden Rule. Please treat everyone in here as you would want to be treated. I ask that no one "flames" anyone else, or say anything obscene or rude. This is a friendly discussions blog that pertains mostly to computers, music, politics, and religion, but not restricted to just these topics.

If you're looking for some computer help, then I highly recommend by starting with my first part in my series:
Computer Advice Part 1 of 9 - Hardware Terms

I also have a website I'd love for anyone to visit at http://webpages.charter.net/drkstlkr/

Gallon Of Sweet Tea

How To Make A Gallon Of Good Southern Sweet Tea

What you will need:
  • Regular size (12 cup) coffee maker
  • Gallon pitcher
  • 4 family size tea bags, preferably Lipton or Luzianne
  • 2 cups of sugar or equivalent artificial sweetener (adjust to taste)
  • 2 tablespoons of lemon juice (optional, adjust to taste)
  • Coffee filter (optional)
How to make it:

Step #1:
Thoroughly wash your coffee pot and filter basket, to remove any coffee residue, or the tea will have a bad taste.

Step #2:
Place 4 family size tea bags in the coffee maker along with a coffee filter (optional).  The coffee filter helps keep any loose tea grains from dripping into the coffee pot.

Step #3:
Fill coffee maker with 12 cups of water.  Most regular size 12 cup coffee pots is equal to about 1/2 (one-half) gallon.

Step #4:
Turn on coffee maker and brew.  Please wait until tea has finished brewing before continuing to next step.

Step #5:
Turn off coffee maker and pour tea into a gallon pitcher.  A full 12-cup coffee pot should fill a gallon pitcher about half-way.

Step #6:
Fill coffee pot with another 12 cups of water, turn on coffee maker, and brew more tea, while still using the same tea bags.

Step #7:
While second pot of tea is brewing, add 2 cups of sugar or equivalent artificial sweetener (adjust to taste), and stir.

Step #8 (Optional):
Add two caps of lemon juice (optional, adjust to taste), and stir.

Step #9:
Once the second pot of tea has finished brewing, pour into gallon pitcher and stir.  Refrigerate overnight, or at least 8+ hours.  Enjoy!
