Almost adroitly joining two threads

And a good pun, too! (e.a.)

I never thought I'd live to see the day [/fanning self]

What, that TEd would come up with a good pun? He's done it before on occasion.

No, duh. That Faldage would appreciate a pun.

Oh I appreciate a good pun. It's just they're pretty rare around here. What's remarkable is that I'd recognize the pun.

The smell of cocoa beans roasting may be nasty, but the smell of coffee beans roasting is fabulous. There is a cafe here in Lexington attached to a coffee importing business. Often they are roasting beans in the back and not only is the smell great, the freshly-roasted and ground coffee has a lot more flavor to it than packaged coffee. It has a fruity, almost sweet flavor that's absent from Starbucks, etc.

Geez this thread is gonna have me playing hookie from work to get a fix.

The coffee in Costa Rica was always sweet, so much so that I once asked if they'd put sugar in it (not using the stuff in coffee myself). They told me they hadn't. None of the Costa Rican stuff I trid around here is the same. But there, there . . . it is.

Hello May.

If you go to My Home, click on Edit Display Preferences, and change the total parent posts to 99, you won't have to change pages every 10 posts. That tends to make reading easier.

This has to be one of the greatest ploys in the history of marketing.

And proves what my father once told me. A delicacy is food that you wouldn't eat unless you were starving - or unless you got charged a huge amount of money for the privilege of eating it.
e.g. fish eggs, snails, fish so poisonous that one bite could kill you and chocolate covered grasshoppers.
(I haven't tried the fugu but the others are quite good if you don't think about it)
