Coffee, chess,potpourri and nonsense
TODAY’S GREAT COFFEE NEWS!!
I woke up early this Friday morning , made a strong, black coffee and checked the news…the usual modus operandi. There it was, right on SKY news front page!
Wonderful news!! Finally, the pessimists of the world of scientific research have decided to give COFFEE a break (no pun intended) and have started picking on other drinks! LINK
COFFEE IN SPACE!
I understand that SPACE TOURISM is soon going to be a fact. When I first heard about this several years ago, I largely ignored it because nobody had (yet) found a way for someone to actually drink a cup of coffee in space…and that meant that I was NOT INTERESTED! However, now that has all changed…
My good blogger-friend Michael Bacon–who understands my coffee fetish better than anyone else, it seems–sent me this link to an article about someone who tried to give up drinking coffee for a whole month. I can’t understand why someone would do something as foolish as giving up drinking the greatest beverage invented, but you should read the article. I especially liked the author’s conclusion:
‘That is the first and last time I will ever do that. It’s not because I experienced withdrawal symptoms like raging headaches or extreme crankiness (I allowed myself green tea and matcha). It was more a simple pleasure of life issue. Ah, perfect. Paul Simon’s “50 Ways to Leave Your Lover” just started playing, so I am calling this “The 30 Reasons I’ll Never Quit My Lover (Coffee) Again.”’
