They and Them are Plural... And refusing to speak proper English doesn't constitute sexual harrassment.... this is ridiculous.

Wisconsin middle schoolers accused of sexual harassment for using wrong gender pronouns

https://www.foxnews.com/us/middle-schoolers-sexual-harassment-gender-pronouns

 

"I received a phone call from the principal over at the elementary school, forewarning me; letting me know that I was going to be receiving an email with sexual harassment allegations against my son," Rosemary Rabidoux, a parent of one of the accused, told Fox 11 News, last week. 

"I immediately went into shock. I’m thinking, sexual harassment? That’s rape, that’s inappropriate touching, that’s incest" Rabidoux continued. "What has my son done?"

 

"(The investigating principal) said he’s being allegedly charged with sexual harassment for not using proper pronouns," Rabidoux said. "I thought it wasn’t real. I thought this has got to be a gag, a joke – one has nothing to do with the other."

Now her son and two other boys are being charged by school officials with Title IV violations, which prohibits gender-based harassment.

The incident in question reportedly took place in March, when a student announced a preference of "they" and "them" to identify them.

 

 

"She had been screaming at one of Braden’s friends to use proper pronouns, calling him profanity, and this friend is very soft-spoken, and kind of just sunk down into his chair," Rabidoux said. "Braden finally came up, defending him, saying ‘He doesn’t have to use proper pronouns, it’s his constitutional right to not use, you can’t make him say things.’"

The mother told ABC 2 News that the new pronoun preference also caused confusion for her son, with her instructing him to just address the student by their name instead.

"It’s plural. It doesn’t make sense to him. I said so, I told him to call them by their names." Rabidoux said.

"It’s not sexual harassment under Title IX, under their own policy, under federal law, and it’s probably a First Amendment violation. Almost certainly, if that’s their theory, that solely using the wrong pronoun, that that would be a First Amendment violation," said Luke Berg, the attorney representing the boys.

Brad Ebert, the school district's superintendent, told ABC 2 that they do not comment on student matters.

The Biden administration is setting the stage to hand ultimate control of America’s health care system and U.S. national sovereignty over to the World Health Organization (WHO)

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Biden administration is setting the stage to hand ultimate control of America’s health care system and U.S. national sovereignty over to the World Health Organization (WHO).

On May 22-28, 2022, the 75th World Health Assembly will convene at United Nations (UN) headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland, with delegates from 194 nations, to vote on the Biden administration’s amendments that will hand over national sovereignty and authority to the WHO, which during the COVID pandemic, carried the water bucket for the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) regarding the Wuhan lab.

On January 18, 2022, officials from the Biden administration quietly sent the WHO extensive amendments without an official statement or a single press conference. The contents of the proposed amendments were not made public until April 12, 2022. The existing WHO regulations provide for an 18-month grace period during which a nation may withdraw its “yes” vote for amendments. However, the current proposed amendments would reduce that opportunity to six months. If the amendments are passed, a majority of the nations could change their individual votes and reverse the approval in the next months.

 

Biden’s Amendments Hand U.S. Sovereignty to the WHO

Officials from the Biden Administration are working to give the World Health Organization the power to unilaterally declare a health emergency in any country, thereby giving them emergency powers. 

The message from the administration and the vote are going unreported by the media.

"This is the biggest global power grab that we have seen in our lifetimes." Former Rep. MicheleBachmann told SteveBannon about the upcoming vote in Geneva over the Biden administration's amendments that would cede US sovereignty to the WHO over national healthcare decisions.

Bachmann’s concern is over the vote that will take place on May 22 in the World Health Organization’s (WHO) governing legislative body, the World Health Assembly (WHA). The vote is to ratify the amendments proposed by the Biden administration and are scheduled as “Provisional agenda item 16.2*”.

“This authority that they will be given will impact 99.4% of all the people in the world,” Bachmann said. “There are 193 nations belonging to the UN. The Biden administration is bringing amendments that were proposed that all nations of the earth cede their sovereignty over their national health care decisions to the WHO.”

“This means that the WHO would have decision-making authority to intervene in the United States government policy and any nation of the world without our permission. 

For instance, the lockdown where you see 26 million people today locked down in Shangai, China. They can’t leave their apartments or homes. The WHO would have the authority to be able to enforce that here in the United States, on whatever pretext they want. They don’t have to show data. They could do this.”

“This is what people need to know,” Bachmann said. “It’s time-sensitive. No one knew about this. The Biden administration gave these proposed amendments to the WHO on January 18. No one knew this until April 12, less than a month ago. But in less than two weeks, the delegates will vote on this in Geneva, Switzerland. The Biden administration has already released a  list of countries, forty of the most powerful countries in the world, including Canada, the EU, and the UK, and Australia. These countries are going along with the Biden administration’s insane push to give sovereignty over to the untrustworthy WHO.”

“It’s extremely important the vote is going to take place in less than two weeks, and no one effectively knows about this happening, but people are starting to know. So it’s important now that we get to Kevin McCarthy, the leader of the House, Mitch McConnel, the leader of the Senate, and demand that they drop everything and .have a joint press conference and that nothing is going to happen in the United States government until Joe Biden drops these amendments, and agrees that we will not give away United States sovereignty to the UN. This is a global power grab that we have never seen in our lifetimes, and if this goes through, nothing else matters.” 

“The vote takes place May 22 through 28 in Geneva, Switzerland, and goes into effect in November,” Bachmann said. “Which means it won’t matter which party wins the elections in November because the global authority will already have transferred to the WHO. That’s why this is so important. It’s why we have to get the US Senate involved, the US House involved, so they stop this dead in its tracks right now, or we lose authority here in the United States.”

It's just the coffee talking: inflation, baby formula shortage for American babies while Biden sends pallets and pallets of it to the border... and the unvax'd are the ones NOT getting Covid

I'm uninspired to ramble over coffee this morning - I've got too much going on.
I'm also not in the mood to take time to look up and place links for anything.
Instead, let me just say the screenshots below are EASY to find with a 1.7 second search and you can read it all yourself.

I've got to finish my coffee and get started on this busy day.

It's Just the Coffee Talking: from the news today - “Did you say the passengers landed the airplane?”

https://www.wpbf.com/article/air-traffic-controller-explains-how-he-helped-a-passenger-land-a-plane-after-pilot-emergency/39961555

 

 

"There’s a passenger flying a plane that’s not a pilot and the pilot is incapacitated so they said you need to help them try and land the plane."

 

 

A plane landed safely at Palm Beach International Airport after “a possible pilot medical issue in the air,” on Tuesday, according to the Federal Aviation Administration, thanks to the help of an air traffic controller who instructed the passenger of the single-engine Cessna 208 on how to land the plane.

“I’ve got a serious situation here,” the passenger said to the air traffic controller, according to the call log obtained by WPBF News Channel 25. “My pilot has gone incoherent. I have no idea how to fly the airplane but I am...”

WPBF identified the air traffic controller as Robert Morgan, of Jupiter, who used a cockpit diagram of the Grand Cessna Caravan to guide the passenger through the steps to descend and land.

“Try to hold the wings level and see if you can start descending for me. Push forward on the controls and descend at a very slow rate,” the air traffic controller told the man, according to CNN.com.

News of what transpired was shared to other pilots by air traffic control.

“Did you say the passengers landed the airplane?” the American Airlines pilot asked, according to CNN. “Oh, my God. Great job.”

The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office took the certified pilot to the hospital. There is no word on their condition.

FAA records indicated the plane is registered to Beach Amphibian LLC in Connecticut, and it was flying to Palm Beach International Airport from Marsh Harbour, Bahamas, The Miami Herald reported.

“It felt really good to help somebody and [the passenger] told me that he couldn’t wait to get home and hug his pregnant wife,” Morgan told WPBF.

 

 

 

 

It's Just the Coffee Talking: recovering a weather beaten outdoor electrical cord (re-rubberizing?)

 

Good Morning Friends with Coffee.... 

I mixed it up a bit there this time.

Random Chit-Chat Over Coffee:  yesterday I was up on a ladder near the front door and happened to spy the cord to our ourdoor security camera.  The cord is surprisingly weather-beaten and fried.  It is in the hot sun, and it's crackled the entire length; pieces of the dried out plastic cord coating are missing.  I could see the wires inside in places.  The wires look fine, and the camera works perfectly so the wires aren't damaged... yet.  But I'm so glad I noticed.

My initial split-second thought was "Oh man, I don't want to have to buy a brand new camera just because the cord is fried..."  but then I thought to myself; "The wires are fine.  I just have to safely encase them again..."   

And I wondered if that was a 'thing'.

I have ZERO interest in anything remotely related to electrical 'things'.  Zilch.  But I don't want to spend 150 on a replacement camera so....  

Within minutes I had decided I'm going to try "liquid" electrical tape.

I knew of 'electrical tape' but didn't know the liquid version was a thing.  However, tape won't work in this case, but I'm going to try the other.  

I don't want to wait to order it online and I know local stores carry some brands of it so I'm hoping to get to a store at some point today to pick some up.  I may have to get 2 or 3 since I need to do a long length of cord.   I'll update to let you know how it worked out if you are interested.  :)

It's Just the Coffee Talking: Is there a milk shortage in some areas due to truckers striking?

Good Morning Coffee Friends...

This morning I had to run a couple errands before officially starting my day.  While in a store getting a couple things we needed, I overheard the employees discussing the neighborhood grocery store (my store - the one I shop at although I haven't been there in about a week).  

She was telling her coworker that they did not have ANY milk.  Not baby formula (which everyone knows is a nationwide shortage right now) but milk.  Of any kind.   

Well, I had to excuse myself and ask more about this... interesting!  Was it because the Moms that couldn't find formula were buying it all?  Nope.  Apparently the truckers that deliver the milk are on strike.  The stores can't get any delivered.  

I said that was strange, as I hadn't heard anything about a strike re; milk?  She said the employees at the store explained it to her; said the truckers said they were going to do it in small areas one at a time, not the whole nation at once.  (???)   

Interesting indeed!  We don't buy milk, so I hadn't noticed.  We do buy Toddler Formula (the Nido toddler kind) which has been in shortage off and on for 2 years now due to Covid shortages.  I haven't heard anything about a trucker strike here in the US regarding milk.  

UPDATE:  I still haven't heard anything about a strike - and I actually was at that grocery store 2 days later and yes, they had milk in stock.  So I'm not sure what that was about.

_________________________________________
  

Pondering over morning coffee:   a healthy society would be more worried about a shortage of baby formula than the ability to kill the babies.



Monday got me like............
(Yep, that's his cup - upside down!  BAH HA HA)

Every look at someone and think, "Why has no one hit you with a shovel yet?"






The numbers....   Here is why women get abortions in the US.  Babies are obviously an inconvenience to them.

It's Just the Coffee Talking: MIT study finds COVID vaccines 'significantly associated' with jump in emergency heart problems

MIT study finds COVID vaccines 'significantly associated' with jump in emergency heart problems

Israeli data on 16-39 year-olds adds fuel to campaigns against coerced jabs. Italian court strikes down mandate, and U.S. pilots accuse FAA of ignoring severe adverse reactions among pilots.

 

 

COVID-19 vaccination was "significantly associated" with a 25% jump in emergency medical services (EMS) for heart problems in 16-39 year-olds in Israel, whose vaccination rate is among the world's highest, according to a peer-reviewed study by MIT researchers.

Published last week in the Nature journal Scientific Reports, the study found no association with COVID infections, however. "While not establishing causal relationships, the findings raise concerns regarding vaccine-induced undetected severe cardiovascular side-effects and underscore the already established causal relationship between vaccines and myocarditis, a frequent cause of unexpected cardiac arrest in young individuals," the study says. The research adds more fuel to the legal and grassroots campaigns against compelled vaccination.

An Italian administrative court deemed a vaccine mandate on nursing students unconstitutional, citing nearly 10,000 reported deaths from various COVID vaccines in the European Medicines Agency's EudraVigilance monitoring system, but referred the case to the country's Constitutional Court. (The new MIT study also mentions EudraVigilance.)

Published in late March, the 53-page ruling only drew attention in the U.S. last week when an anti-vaccine mandate group translated a portion. Just the News ran the ruling through Google Translate, which said in part the reported death count exceeds the "normal and, therefore, tolerable" risk permitted under vaccine mandates.

It's Just the Coffee Talking: It's a Monday.

It's a Monday!!!

Hoping my coffee friends are enjoying a morning beverage, breathing in some fresh air, and trying to get into a nice happy place mentally before starting yet another week!

These articles are a couple days old, but surprisingly (sarcasm...) main stream media has been trying to keep them hidden.  Sigh.  Whatever.  People should know by know if they want to know what's going on, they will have to dig past what's being spoon-fed to them on the 6:00 news. 

I've got a busy week... as I'm sure we all do.  I'm just going to sip some coffee and leave a few links here for those interested.  This is just one source that had them easily linkable.  You can obviously find a thousand more links and information if you are interested.

 

FDA limits use of J&J vaccine over the blood clotting issues - but Pfizer and Moderna shots pose the same risk.  Lots of people in bed with Pfizer and Moderna though - and most all our Dem lawmakers have their stocks in their portfolios so.... yeah. 


More than 8K NEW covid vaccine injuries reported through VAERS and CDC data....
 

Pilots injured by the mandated vaccines they were forced to take to keep their jobs... now some can never fly again anyway.
 

Mortality rates are up in the same areas that had high vaccination rates.

It's Just the Coffee Talking: That one time when NASA used common sense and listened to an astronaut when he said "guys, I think this is how this should be handled"

 

 

 

Image Credit: NASA

On Jan. 16, 2016, Expedition 46 Commander Scott Kelly shared photographs of a blooming zinnia flower in the Veggie plant growth system aboard the International Space Station. Kelly wrote, "Yes, there are other life forms in space! #SpaceFlower #YearInSpace"

This flowering crop experiment began on Nov. 16, 2015, when NASA astronaut Kjell Lindgren activated the Veggie system and its rooting "pillows" containing zinnia seeds. The challenging process of growing the zinnias provided an exceptional opportunity for scientists back on Earth to better understand how plants grow in microgravity, and for astronauts to practice doing what they’ll be tasked with on a deep space mission: autonomous gardening.

In late December, Kelly found that the plants "weren't looking too good," and told the ground team, “You know, I think if we’re going to Mars, and we were growing stuff, we would be responsible for deciding when the stuff needed water. Kind of like in my backyard, I look at it and say ‘Oh, maybe I should water the grass today.’ I think this is how this should be handled.”

The Veggie team on Earth created what was dubbed “The Zinnia Care Guide for the On-Orbit Gardener,” and gave basic guidelines for care while putting judgment capabilities into the hands of the astronaut who had the plants right in front of him. Rather than pages and pages of detailed procedures that most science operations follow, the care guide was a one-page, streamlined resource to support Kelly as an autonomous gardener. Soon, the flowers were on the rebound, and on Jan. 12, pictures showed the first peeks of petals beginning to sprout on a few buds.


The zinnia seeds were delivered to the space station as part of the Veg-01 experiment in April 2014. The plant pillows containing the zinnia seeds were activated Nov. 16, 2015, in the Veggie plant growth system by NASA astronaut Scott Kelly during his one-year mission. The zinnias were watered and their growth was monitored for 90 days. The plants were harvested on Feb. 14, 2016, packaged and returned to Earth on the SpaceX CRS-8 Commercial Resupply Services Mission.

Police in New York City released new photos showing thieves wanted for stealing more than 400 bulletproof vests donated months ago to help the Ukrainian war effort

 

 

 


Police in New York City released new photos showing thieves wanted for stealing more than 400 bulletproof vests donated months ago to help the Ukrainian war effort after Russian forces invaded. 

The six suspects – some seen smiling and carrying large garbage bags in surveillance images – allegedly broke into the headquarters for the Ukrainian Congress Committee of America and the Ukrainian National Women’s League of America located in the East Village section of Manhattan on March 15.

The group forced open the door around 2 p.m. and removed approximately 400 bulletproof vests donated from various law enforcement agencies and stored at the organizations’ offices.

The individuals loaded the vests into three different vehicles that fled into Brooklyn, police said. The New York Police Department also released a photo of one of those vehicles, a white van, on Friday.

Long Island’s Suffolk County Sheriff’s Office donated some 450 used, decommissioned vests to the Ukrainian Congress Committee of America intended for Ukrainian medics and humanitarian workers, but it was not clear if the vests donated from that agency were among those stolen, WNBC reported.

Anyone with information is asked to call the NYPD's Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782). Tips can also be submitted through the CrimeStoppers website at https://crimestoppers.nypdonline.org/ or on Twitter @NYPDTips. All calls are strictly confidential.

 

 

 

 

 

It's Just the Coffee Talking: here are some meme's that aren't all sunshine and roses for Mother's Day. Those are more interesting and funny!

Good Sunday Morning to my Coffee Friends!

Today I will probably spend the day re-sealing all the slate tile in the shower enclosure of the master bathroom.  That and trying to figure out and design a cake for an event next weekend. 

I did a ton of baking yesterday and made and froze cakes so I can 'brainstorm' the design and have (hopefully) all the layers and sizes I'll end up wanting.  It's odd that I can't pin down a design or idea that feels 'right' for this event cake... I was given a photo of the cake topper that will be placed on the very top; so my design and theme will have to go around that. 

On Friday I will probably get all the cakes out, all my supplies out and stand there with coffee in hand, staring at everything until an idea forms itself and comes together.  I do that sometimes.  Creativity can't be forced I guess?  Ha ha.

 Meanwhile... here are some meme's that aren't all sunshine and roses for Mother's Day.  Those are more interesting and funny!!!

Dear Mom, Thanks for giving me life.  Too bad you suck at actual mothering.







My best attributes are my smile and being nothing like you.






I figured you would talk about how awful Mother's Day was that you didn't get a card.  Well, now you can't because you got one.  You're welcome.







Dear Mom, Just once could I be the child in this relationship?






Happy Mother's Day!  Thank you for teaching me the kind of mother I don't want to be.

It's Just the Coffee Talking: just a tiny little frustration post - because letting your car at a dealership to have the oil changed does not make you responsible for a mechanics death!

This was in the news... it is pure insanity!  This is wrong on SO MANY LEVELS and is purely the result of our litigious nature and the pathetic society we have become.
 

So this guy brings his vehicle in for a typical oil change and tire rotation. 
The 19 year old employee helping out (has no idea how to drive a manual, and has no license, but is working at a car dealership anyway) gets into the vehicle to start it up while the main mechanic is under the vehicle - he makes it lurch forward, it falls and kills the other employee.....

AND THE CAR OWNER IS SUED FOR IT.

Did you read that?  THE CAR OWNER is sued for the negligence of the 19 year old employee.

THIS IS NOT OK.  This is so freaking NOT OK.

 

 

Michigan car owner sued after Jeep kills mechanic during oil change


A Michigan man who left his car at a dealership for an oil change and tire rotation is being sued after his vehicle was involved in the death of one of the dealership's employees.

Sergio Enrique Diaz-Navarro took his red 2019 Wrangler to a Chrysler Jeep Dodge dealership on March 13, 2020, and 19-year-old lube technician Daniel Thompson worked on the car. After the service was complete, the vehicle "lurched forward" as the young employee attempted to operate it, crushing 42-year-old mechanic Jeffrey Hawkins against a cabinet, court records show.

Thompson had lowered the Jeep from the vehicle lift, and then tried to start the car and let it idle to ensure there were no oil leaks around the filter, according to court records.

"Thompson reached into the vehicle and pressed brake with his right foot, keeping his other foot on the floor," the plaintiff summary reads. "He pressed the start button. When the vehicle did not start, he took his foot off the brake and depressed the clutch pedal. He again hit the start button. This time the Jeep started. He removed his foot from the clutch, still standing outside the vehicle. The vehicle lurched forward."

Hawkins was taken to the hospital, where he succumbed to his injuries, according to The Kansas City Star.

Diaz-Navarro and Thompson were both sued in a Michigan circuit court in March 2021.

Attorney David Femminineo, who is representing Hawkins' estate, told FOX 2 that Thompson did not know how to drive the vehicle's manual transmission and did not have a license. The attorney also said the dealership cannot be sued because of a legal standard preventing an employee from suing their boss for negligence, which, in this case, would be the hiring of someone who should not have been driving.

Because the incident happened at work and involved two employees, the boss cannot be sued, FOX 2 notes. 

Diaz-Navarro's attorney told FOX 2 he plans to fight the case in a trial later this month.

"When you hand your car over to anybody including the valet or the person at the service desk at your local dealership, you better be able to trust that person," the attorney said.

Femminineo told McClatchy News that the car owner is responsible for Hawkins' death in the same way that someone who lent another person their vehicle would be liable for any injuries caused by the driver. He said a person who lends their car is liable for negligent acts because they gave the other person permission to use their vehicle.

According to a summary filed in court on March 1, the court has ordered the Rochester Hills Chrysler Jeep Dodge dealership, where the incident occurred, to indemnify Diaz-Navarro if he is found liable of negligence.

"So in reality, the owner is going to be held responsible, but the dealership’s insurance company is paying," Femminineo told McClatchy News. He said he hopes a verdict in excess of $15 million is awarded.

 

 

 

 "........ the car owner is responsible for Hawkins' death in the same way that someone who lent another person their vehicle would be liable for any injuries caused by the driver. He said a person who lends their car is liable for negligent acts because they gave the other person permission to use their vehicle."

NO THAT IS NOT THE SAME THING.

Leaving your vehicle to be maintenanced or repaired is NOT the same thing as 'letting someone drive your car".

 

 

It's Just the Coffee Talking: Let's chat about anything but the news, shall we?

Good Morning Coffee Friends.....

This morning I think there will be no comments on the news over my morning coffee... instead, anything BUT the news.   :)

I'm not really in the mood to review anything coffee related either... so, let's see what else I can ramble about for a bit?

Yesterday I got a delivery I was anticipating but they apparently only shipped 3 of the 4 items.  They are 25 lb. each so they are shipped individually with separate shipping labels as well.  It looks like they created labels for all 4 but then only actually shipped 3.  The tracking for the fourth package still says "awaiting" package from the seller.  

I did reach out to them but I've yet to hear back.  I don't anticipate issues with getting the last item shipped (it's already paid for of course) but I was all ready to get them into long term mylar with oxygen absorbers and now I have to wait for probably another week before the final one arrives - and I can put all that 'stuff' away I use to store it. (I'm including links above, if you are wondering what in the heck I'm talking about.)

I've got some major baking to do for a family function and yesterdays baking escapades were a bust.  I knew they would be.  It was an 'off' day - and you should never attempt large baking and cooking projects on an off day when everything is wrong anyway.  Sure enough - almost a complete bust.  I need to redo but it will involve getting more ingredients from the grocery store first.  That's on my 'list' for today but so far, I'm just fine with procrastinating and sipping more coffee.

Cleaning, laundry and dishes are all waiting to be tackled today and tomorrow.  I normally do a deep clean Friday (my day off) but was baking and scrubbing tile most of the day so I'm off schedule for that as well.  Tile was (hopefully) finished being scrubbed with the acidic cleanser one last time this morning (before I even had my coffee) and letting it dry now so I can apply a sealer coat either tomorrow or Monday.  I want that project DONE so we can use that shower again and stop using the other guest room showers.  :)

See?

Lots to ramble about by avoiding ANY mention of ANY topic in the news!


It's just the coffee talking again......


Re; the gaff he made about how Delaware has never had a Senator....  LOL.   (Literally every time this man opens his mouth he says something stupid, wrong or inappropriate.  But no one wants to act on it because of who we have waiting in the wings to take over....  a rock and a hard place.)



Here is something you should ponder over coffee.  (And start to research if you don't have a clue what I'm talking about).   China, Italy, France....  Hmmm.   And when they decide a phone is too 'old school' or bulky or that not everyone has one, what do you want to bet they start to offer the choice of having it implanted into a place that would be easily scanned.  Say, a forehead or wrist for example.  Ponder that.  Sound familiar?




Yep.  They are.

 
 
 
 
 
 
I know this one is true... it's hard to do - but it's true.

This.  So. This.  The personalities that align with the different groups is pretty clear cut.

It's Just the Coffee Talking Again... not actually about coffee but with coffee, that's for sure

Sleeping would be nice but with so much going on in life, my brain doesn't let me sleep.  

But...good morning coffee friends.  3:am came and sleep wasn't happening so... let's just start another day. 

Yesterday started at 1:00 am.


Although I'm trying to avoid reading details after I skim news headlines, I can't help but notice a lot of the screaming, rendering of clothing and gnashing of teeth are based on.... lack of information, willful stupidity, all-out lies, drama, laziness to find out details of just what exactly they are losing their minds over.

This would be where the little thing called 'facts' come in.  I've noticed the loud screamers right now making headlines really don't seem to have knowledge over what they are screaming and protesting about.  There are a lot of uninformed people making a lot of noise.

Coffee Talk:  well, as you can tell, I've not been reviewing coffee or coffee products much in the past few months.  Life has been throwing me challenges that make reviewing coffee products pretty non-essential.  Oh, COFFEE has been essential to keep trudging forward but the time, effort and work involved in reviews (for free since no one pays me) isn't worth it.  The pennies made on affiliate links are mostly just that... literally pennies... so yeah, a lot of random chat in the recent past and less 'coffee' product talk.

But believe me, it's still just the coffee talking....  ha ha.

It's Just the Coffee Talking Again... this time over S. Pellegrino Coffee sparkling water (which I don't think you can find anymore)

Good Morning Coffee Friends!

This morning I had to chug my (really hot) coffee as quickly as I could muster as I was determined to get some caffeine into me but needed to rush.

It was a busy morning but I got through the things so I could hurry and get to either Lowe's or Home Depot for some items I needed.  I wanted to do Home Depot but they didn't show the things I needed in stock or available and Lowe's did.  So... Lowe's it was.  Oh well.  But I got the things I needed and... some other things I did/do need but didn't really plan to purchase.  Mainly those would be the 4 outdoor chair cushions (not the ones I bought for the adirondack chairs) but for the 4 regular metal chairs on the deck. 

My bill was almost double what I had planned but all needed so it is what it is! 

I've got a ton to do and half the day is gone but I wanted to pop in to say HELLO to my coffee friends that pop in here every  morning just to say 'hey' or read.  


It's just the coffee talking again...     although at this moment it's cold coffee - S. Pellegrino coffee flavored mineral water actually.  (Which is awesome and brand new - but unfortunately I think they stopped making them already.)  Glad I found a couple on clearance at Sam's Club a couple weeks ago as they are rare to find now.  Too bad - they are awesome.



 

 

 

 I'm not stuck up.  I'm not anti-social.  I treasure my solitude.
I'm not a fan of small talk.  I prefer only a few close friends.
I am reserved until I'm not.
If we connect, you matter to me.
