Nespresso offers a descaling process video on YouTube however, for me, it was inconvenient to follow the instructions running between the Vertuo and my desktop computer.

The History of Rock & Roll (THRR) - During the '70s I performed in this group. Based in Port Angeles (WA), our group played dance music at popular nightspots from Clallam Bay on the west end of the Olympic Peninsula to Seattle. THRR is recognized on the website created as a tribute to bands that performed in the Pacific Northwest during the 50's, 60's, 70's and later. To visit the full array of bands during this era visit Pacific Northwest Bands. Listed also at the site, in memorandum, is our good buddy and music-mate Jim Neske (a.k.a., Chance Eden).
