It's Just the Coffee Talking again.....

Brewing my second cup of coffee now - hot, strong, black and at 6 oz. size.  Not a watered down typical 8 or 10 oz. like most - but not espresso.  Just right.

This morning I saw the University of California is no longer going to use SAT and ACT scores... they said it's not fair to the poor or minority students.  I think I'm just going to let that stand and not 'chat' over coffee about that one.


"Put a mask on!  You're putting my health at risk!"
Biden's White House - you need zero brain cells - just need to know how to LIE and DOUBLE TALK.  Deny, lie, make up shit.  Just say whatever you have to say and walk out.  
This time the White House Economic Advisor blames the horrible April jobs report on Easter being in March this year....   Which is a bullshit excuse but hello?  Easter was in APRIL this year. 

"I'm gonna have a positive attitude today!"  LOL
HA!  Nashville gas station puts a photo of naked, high, Hunter Biden on their sign...  "hope gas prices don't get too high..."   Creepy Joe and his equally creepy, drugged up son and trashy wife - what a classy First family the democratic left's pre-programmed voting machines elected. 



Saturday Morning Coffee Talking: My Monster's Inc t-shirts were/are quality, correctly sized and awesome... you just never know what you're going to get!


This is me - with coffee - and whistling and pretending I don't know I'm procrastinating getting started on some of my tasks for today... ha ha.  (Although officially, the first thing I did was restart the dryer with some clothes in it so I am actually doing one task while I sip my coffee.)

That clothing in the dryer - trying to 'over' dry it so it will shrink a little.  Ah, ordering something from Amazon, you know it's probably going to come from China and it's hit or miss on what the quality will be - but mostly - the sizing.  Most things run very very small.  Like if you wear a medium in real life, you best be ordering the XL or even the XXL on Amazon because it's going to be cheap, and shrink up to 6 inches all the way around, right?

So I needed a themed t-shirt for a birthday party tomorrow for Mr. Coffee and I.  I chose two; ordered and made sure to order one size up.  Dangit.  They were great quality shirts and were the correct size!  Ha ha.  So now I'm washing them in hot and trying to shrink them just a bit for Mr. Coffee.    

Did you see the news story out of Chicago of the cat that jumped from 5 stories up... and walked away.  Man, cats are amazing creatures.


For those wondering; here are the shirts I ordered for a Monster's Inc themed birthday party - and they were great quality.  They seem to be the real deal - Disney quality - and they do have a Disney tag as well.  Order your regular size - they were both spot on.  (As a matter of fact I ordered THREE shirts because they ended up being true-to-size so I kept the two (one size too large)  t-shirts I originally ordered but then ordered my size in the women's size/fit.  And again - the third t-shirt was also a Disney tag, great quality and the correct size.   (And they've been washed and dried 3 times now and no peeling or issues with the designs as some reviews stated.)

It's just the coffee talking... the USPS finally delivered the photo albums (it took a MONTH)

Good Morning coffee friends...

I'm happy to report that USPS has finally delivered the photo books ordered April 16th.  It took them almost a MONTH.  

I had placed 3 different orders over 2 days as they had a great sale and I needed to 'catch up' on getting my photos off my cellphone and into printed albums (and one is a gift for someone else). 

The other 2 orders came within a week or so as usual but this package of 2 photo books took a MONTH.  My package went on side-trips to other states just for fun and then went back to the original state and finally found its way to us.

That's pretty pathetic of our postal system...  but we've seen standards fall to 'dismal' over the past couple years.  I'm not sure we'll ever get them back.


Today is payday.
I paid bills this morning and I'm now down to $181 in our account for the next two weeks.  Not going to buy many groceries with the inflation that we've seen in the past 3 months!  Thankfully I do keep some tucked away for emergencies.

The Biden administration is going to apparently be one very long, difficult emergency.






(because they didn't want to give up the password)
All the evidence surrounding this past election to show it was complete fraud...

He seriously said this...  dementia Joe has got to go.


Australia calls it like it is: Biden's incoherence is not new, but surely it can't go on! “This bloke is without shame” and "The tragedy is, the replacement is Kamala Harris – as big a disaster. Her own party didn’t want her. In the runoff for the Democratic nomination, she received 2% of the vote"

Sky News Australia host Alan Jones absolutely trashed Joe Biden on his show recently, calling Biden “cognitively delinquent” and calling for his resignation.

Jones showed a string of humiliating videos of “President” Joe Biden unable to complete a sentence. “Putting Biden in this position of leading the world’s democracies is Elder Abuse. His incoherence is not new, but surely it can’t go on. There will have to be a Presidential Resignation shortly.”

“This bloke is without shame,” Jones said. “He hailed the Covid-19 vaccines distributed across the United States as a ‘dose of hope’. That hope, Mr. Biden, was launched on Trump’s watch. Trump ordered millions of vaccines before anyone thought of it.”

“China is militarizing ports across our region. It has invaded Taiwan’s airspace. What did the leader of the free world have to say in his first address about any of that? Nothing,”  Jones said.

“And no mention of Israel, with reports in the last 48 hours that former Secretary of State John Kerry, now Biden’s Climate Change Czar, dished details of covert Israeli actions to the Iranians. And you mean to say this bloke Biden isn’t cognitively delinquent?”

Jones showed a string of humiliating videos of “President” Joe Biden unable to complete a sentence. “Putting Biden in this position of leading the world’s democracies is Elder Abuse. His incoherence is not new, but surely it can’t go on. There will have to be a Presidential Resignation shortly.”

“How can we believe any self-respecting world leader will take this bloke seriously? Can you imagine what it’s like taking to him live? One wag had it right with a meme that says it all:”

Jones went on to quote Senator Lindsey Graham: “He’s been a disaster on foreign policy. The border is in chaos. The Iranians are off the map. He’s opening up negotiations with the Iranian regime and they haven’t done a damn thing to change. Afghanistan is going to fall apart. Russia and China are already pushing him around. I am very worried.”

Jones concluded: “Someone’s going to have to tap this bloke on the shoulder and tell him he’s gotta go. The tragedy is, the replacement is Kamala Harris – as big a disaster. Her own party didn’t want her. In the runoff for the Democratic nomination, she received 2% of the vote.

If we don’t think the free world is in a mess, we are bad students of the current international situation.”

Buckle Up... 2021-2024 is going to be a bumpy... violent... expensive ride.

Inflation surges....  and it's just the beginning.   Literally. 



Coffee and the news....

 ... man, what's going on in Israel right now is something that could potentially escalate to huge but it's hard to find it being covered truthfully in main stream news.    And the little talking heads they are giving it?  Are by US leaders who ARE Palestinian/Muslims!?  WTF?  The news is a cesspool. 




Racist University professor says she tries to limit interactions with black people as much as possible...

OH WAIT...  that was backwards.




 Liberal Democratic leadership is beginning to look alike like Hitler's Germany 1941.   




Discriminatory Passports – Never Again


When my grandmother passed away at the end of 2020, a month shy of her 98th birthday, she left me her passport. This is not the indestructible blue book adorned with an American Eagle, but a faded and flimsy booklet from Austria, featuring a Nazi Eagle and swastika. The first page is stamped with a bright red J—for J├╝din, meant to mark her for the world as Jewish or, in that time and place, undesirable. This is not a passport that recognized her freedom to travel the world, as she later did as an American, but rather a document that separated her from others and designated her as unwanted and subhuman. 

Every page of this passport except the last one was a testament to the fact that my grandmother was not wanted. The Anschluss, or Nazi Germany’s annexation of Austria, occurred on March 12, 1938. For almost nine months, my grandmother lived under Nazi rule and faced the terror, physical agony, humiliation, and fear instilled by the Nazi regime. Finally, on the last day of November, my grandmother managed to obtain this passport, which was stamped with a swastika across her photo and marked her as Jewish. Two days later, she received a visa from Belgium—but only for transit—and a visa from the United Kingdom—but only for a temporary visit.  She left Vienna almost immediately and landed at Dover, England, on December 9, 1938. She illegally overstayed her visa in London. What choice did she have? She could not return to the only home she knew, and no country wanted her.  

Finally, on April 19, 1940, an agent at the U.S. consulate in London stamped an Immigration Visa onto the last page of my grandmother’s Nazi Reich passport, even though the passport had expired four months earlier. Thankfully, and with the intercession of the Swiss government, the U.S. ignored the expiration. She found freedom in America despite the limitations the Nazis tried to impose on her. Notably, when she arrived in New York, the United States did not even bother stamping her Nazi documentation. That “passport” was not worth anything at all except as a reminder that she had been unwanted in Europe.

In her 80 years in the United States, my grandmother had many passports and used them frequently to visit family abroad or to see the world. Her American passport was not a method of discrimination and did not separate her from society. America recognized her freedom as a human being and a citizen, and America did not separate her from humanity for her religion or other characteristics or choices.

My grandmother was lucky to obtain a passport at all in 1938. Eventually the Nazis stopped granting them to Jews. The issuance of passports to some people and not others was, and still is, used as a means to divide and to persecute. This is not unique to the Holocaust, of course. For example, communist regimes and other authoritarian governments have withheld passports from political dissidents. Still today, a common form of punishment for free thinkers in Saudi Arabia is withholding the liberty to travel abroad. Just this month, the Saudi government sentenced an aid worker and human rights advocate to 20 years imprisonment followed by another twenty years in which he will not be allowed to leave that kingdom. Documents that grant freedom to only some, also discriminate against others.

Vaccine passports and restrictions based on medical choices are wrong. They would mark some as privileged and others as less valuable, just as Nazi passports did. We must learn from the Holocaust, even though the inequality of today does not match the unique evils of that dark time. That’s what Never Again means—learning to avoid similar mistakes. Today, many Americans are scared of COVID-19, but despite those fears we must act in ways that will make us proud tomorrow and in decades to come. Those who separate, classify, and alienate their fellow people seek to dehumanize them. Ultimately, they only succeed in dehumanizing themselves. That cannot be our legacy.





Scientists say immediate use of Ivermectin could end COVID-19 immediately...

Ponder over afternoon coffee.....



Immediate Use of Ivermectin Medicine Globally Can End COVID-19 Pandemic: Scientists


A peer-reviewed research has claimed that global ivermectin use can end the COVID-19 pandemic, as the medicine significantly reduces the risk of contracting the deadly respiratory disease when used regularly.

The common antiparasitic ivermectin is being touted as a miracle cure for COVID-19 by doctors and campaigners the world over.

Peer reviewed by medical experts that included three US government senior scientists and published in the American Journal of Therapeutics, the research is the most comprehensive review of the available data taken from clinical, in vitro, animal, and real-world studies.

Led by the Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance (FLCCC), a group of medical and scientific experts reviewed published peer-reviewed studies, manuscripts, expert meta-analyses, and epidemiological analyses of regions with ivermectin distribution efforts all showing that ivermectin is an effective prophylaxis and treatment for COVID-19.

"We did the work that the medical authorities failed to do, we conducted the most comprehensive review of the available data on ivermectin," said Pierre Kory, MD, president and chief medical officer of the FLCCC. "We applied the gold standard to qualify the data reviewed before concluding that ivermectin can end this pandemic."

A focus of the manuscript was on the 27 controlled trials available in January 2021, 15 of which were randomised controlled trials (RCT's).

Consistent with numerous meta-analyses of ivermectin RCT's since published by expert panels from the UK, Italy, Spain and Japan, they found a large, statistically significant reduction in mortality, time to recovery, and viral clearance in COVID-19 patients treated with ivermectin.

"Our latest research shows, once again, that when the totality of the evidence is examined, there is no doubt that ivermectin is highly effective as a safe prophylaxis and treatment for COVID-19," said Paul E. Marik, founding member of the FLCCC and Chief, Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine at Eastern Virginia Medical School.

Many regions around the world now recognize that ivermectin is a powerful prophylaxis and treatment for COVID-19. South Africa, Zimbabwe, Slovakia, Czech Republic, Mexico, and India have approved the drug for use by medical professionals.

The results, as seen in this latest study, demonstrate that the ivermectin distribution campaigns repeatedly led to "rapid population-wide decreases in morbidity and mortality".

"We are calling on regional public health authorities and medical professionals around the world to demand that ivermectin be included in their standard of care right away so we can end this pandemic once and for all," Marik noted.





Flashback: camping and hiking - random photos from May in previous years

Camping... like being homeless, only dirtier and with more bug bites.

Hello coffee friends!  

I started this blog post before 8:am this morning... and then I guess I got busy.  Here I am - with fresh, hot coffee in hand, and sitting down at the laptop only to see an open editing window from this morning!  

It's now 5:30 pm.  Such is life!

Apparently this morning I was going to chit-chat about camping, as the only thing I had in my editing window so far was a camping comic.  I saw this one years (and years and years) ago and had saved it to my computer folder because this is MY HUSBAND.   My husband (Mr. Coffee) does not camp.  But I've been asking, begging, hinting, joking, and pleading off and on for the last couple months and it's still a negative.  The boy will. not. camp.

I think I'm in a strong 'camping' mode this week because traditionally... this is the week I'm usually doing a 2 week 'cross country' camping trip of some type.  I like to go the first week or two of May - right before most schools get out, so the crowds are thinner.  

My heart aches to be camping and hiking but for many reasons it's just not feasible right now.  (My schedule, no time 'off', no one to go with as my usual camping buddy went and got married and then had a baby and she isn't up to camping with a little one yet... and I have no one to really go with.)



Random photos from May of previous years when I would normally
be 'out and about' somewhere.
These are random places/photos in no particular order

Arizona desert camping

I think this was in Arizona (?)

Pretty sure this was one of the hikes in the Grand Canyon

This one was in Arkansas....

This one Alabama

This one is South Dakota... driving through those skinny one-lane roads

South Dakota!

South Dakota again... oh my heart belongs to South Dakota


It's Just the Coffee Talking.... MOTHER'S DAY memes.... oh, you wanted sweet, nice ones? Not here. Move along then.


Good Morning Coffee friends!

Here is me with some flowers if there is anyone out there who needs some this morning.  It's Mother's Day - but even if you aren't a Mother and you need some cyber flowers this morning... here you go!

It's okay... I didn't want a real life anyway.

What real Moms are thinking by this point...
"Calm the fuck down."

Let me get mine before you assholes eat everything.
(Although I don't personally ever feel this way nor do I ever think of my kids as that word...
but I know some Moms will relate I guess...)

Here's to every mother who has ever eaten a candy bar in a closet, because frankly,
you just didn't want to share....

Call your mother and say something nice!
And remember that it's your fault that she pees a little every time she sneezes.
Love and sacrifice!

When your kid gets called into the principal's office for saying "shit" and
you know exactly where he learned it from.

Mom's trying to work from home during Covid quarantines...

mother of five.
grandmother of twelve.
drunk by seven.

you kids put that homework away!
these cocktails aren't gonna refill themselves...

This one is kind of 'vintage CoffeeTalking.com' ish as it's one I
have been posting and loving for almost 20 years.

I started to fall in love with AT products when I first personally saw them
around 2004 or 2005 (?). 

I loved this one (and a couple others) so much,
I bought the napkins.
And in true "mom" fashion, didn't ever want to USE THEM because
I didn't want to 'waste' them... ha ha.  
I probably still have one floating around in a 'party supplies' box in storage somewhere.

Where the hell is my pickle fork?
I can't have anything nice with you kids.
