I thwarted the evil hociR by buying a k-5 cheap off of fleabay. Now I'm being watched by covert squirrels in my tree! They know I am not a convert and are not pleased!! Maybe I can mollify them with pizza crust? worth a shot.

I don't think it was plagiarism so much as a tribute to the esteemed OP. Yeah, that's it, a tribute.

Thanks jac, having seen your map, I went to the fridge and poured myself a drink (fruit juice & mineral water) and they poured so much more easily!
All is right with the world and Australia is rightly (nearly) on top, (including in the cricket!)
That's fine for you but now I feel squashed. Can't even see our little island anymore. It's like mass entering a black hole. All the matter is still here but we're swiftly being reduced to a singularity.

And just where did we start calling a collection of 12 a dozen.
It 's from the French as in 'Dat dere bunch of une douzaine guys "dozen" do dat job because d'ere in d'Union'. I have no idea how it gets connected to twelve though.

Leave the French lessons to Jean. (I did three years of French in school - I don't remember much, but we never came across that saying.)

Dozen origin = Middle English: from Old French dozeine, based on Latin duodecim 'twelve'.

BTW: best tea should be certified as being grown about 1260 metres elevation. Then it qualifies for 'high mountain' moniker.

1260 meters is too low. Denver is higher than that.

A Japanese green tea company has established a processing plant in Wangaratta, (Vic Au) and has contracted growers from around the region.
The Growers are dispersed to endure harvesting occurs sequentially rather than all at once.
A number of growers are in the Mount Beauty (elevation 366 metres) and Tawonga (elevation 330 metres) which are both much less than your quoted 1260 metres.
Perhaps green tea doesn't have the same requirements as other teas.
