    Starbucks Holiday Blend 2019

    I don't know how many people get any of the Starbucks ground coffee. I normally don't but I do look forward to the Holiday blend every year. It is a little different every year but I have in the past always liked it. Not this year. I had my first cup this morning and I didn't care for it. I...

    Carrie Fisher

    I Am Such a Klutz

    I spilled coffee on my laptop and the top two rows of keys are dead It was only about 18 months old. I am going out in a bit to get another one. I also have to take both kitties for checkups next week. I will probably end up carrying a balance on a credit card for awhile. I really hate that.
