I tried grinding a couple of mesquite pods this evening in my coffee mill. Most of it ground up OK, but the remainder was gumming up the works. The grinder is one of those you can just unclamp, so I did that, turned it upside down, and turned the crank backwards and forwards until it was clean. Not sure how it will work with a few hundred pods, but I guess we'll see.

The blue LED I attached to my hat is still bright enough at night to serve as good task lighting as I go about my coffee-making and other piddling... it worked out far better than I'd ever imagined. I'll have to get a rechargeable 9V for it next time I go into town, though. These alkaline cells are awfully toxic, or so I remember.
