    most are now owned by chains, the upsell is a big thing. Guilting the family into extras (they likely can't afford) in their time of distress. It might have been the CEO..... but wow....kind of bad taste to flaunt the cashflow like this....

    a lot of the ideas about tea and coffee are from folklore. I once gave my grandmother 'bean coffee' as old folks called it in the afternoon. She had requested decaf because otherwise, she could not sleep. We had just had a big family party, so I was sure we had decaf, otherwise, we did not...

    no capers? They are on the top shelf in the pickle aisle in our Walmart store! If you have a decently stocked grocery store, you should be able to find some. (or pickle your own Nasturtium buds)

    I am known to drink actual hot water. Yes, it does give you weird looks. I did not want cold water, and no office coffee. It was something a famous opera singer back in the day did. She had a TV show (way back in the day) and interviewed folks (about opera and classical music) and at one time...

    I saw somebody pulling out into the street in an old Mercedes. And I mean OLD. Naturally, I could not turn and look/ask what year, but I am guessing early 50s, if not earlier. The dude inside wore a sleveless T-shirt, bright orange. Back in the day, the driver would have never entered unless...

    sitting on packed suitcases. Luckily a direct flight, not like normal, I will be more offline these days than online, I am sure. I am already a nervous wreck, flying isn't as much fun as it used to be, and I will be gone for 2 months, I hope my family, animals, and plants will survive. In the...

    I have seen that a few times that folks who called out the trolls got warned, the trolls were left to happily feed on the discord they sowed.

    I usually get stuff removed for more involved contributions. Last time I got a ban, I was recapping what other people had said. As if it was my fault the clan of the topic was rumored to be involved in illicit adventures. (The other times I was actually trolling... )
