I've heard from a couple of people that they haven't been able to leave comments for a few days. Does anyone know what to do about this? It seems to be working now, but for future reference.

Coffee ~ Which one do you love?

Are you one of those people who needs a jump start every morning???

-Do you start your day AFTER that first cup of coffee? Or after that first POT of coffee??
-Do you stumble blindly to the kitchen and fumble around until you've managed to pull together the makings for a fresh pot of home brew... or just stumble down the hall with the aroma of fresh brewed coffee wafting out to meet you, thanks to your coffeemaker with the auto brew function?
What about the brand of coffee that you use? Is it the $3.99/lb. coffee, $15/lb specialty brand, or somewhere in between? Is it light roast, medium or dark roast? How do you drink it? Do you doctor it up by adding cream .... sugar....?

-How about those delightful flavourings in the bottle? MMMM yummy... French vanilla, English toffee, butternut, you name it.. If you've thought of it I'm sure someone's invented it!

-Then there's *Starbucks*! Or Tim Horton's if you're Canadian (there ARE a few in the US but I hear there aren't very many). So what about Starbucks and Timmies? What do you drink there?

-At Starbucks I drink a venti, no fat, triple shot, extra caramel, caramel macchiato...cha ching! This one costs about $5.40. I drink this one about once a month or less often than that.

-At Timmies I drink X large half coffee half French vanilla.. yum!! Much more affordable than the other one. This one costs $2.20. I usually drink this one about once a week or so.... more when I'm working....usually one a day then.

Well I have to admit that I've become somewhat dependent on the stuff. I was thinking about it recently and analyzing my coffee habit over the last several years.
When I was in my teens at home, we liked to drink strong tea with cream and sugar in it. Then I hit my older teens and started sipping the obnoxious drink because it was the social thing to do... my friends drank coffee. Then I hit my twenties and drank it for the energy... and still slightly for the social part of it. Well now that I'm into my thirties and on the downhill slope to forty.... I am now drinking it because I actually enjoy the TASTE!!! woohooo
Well here's to all you fellow coffee drinkers out there.... Drink up!!

I must confess.. I am not one of those stumblers in the morning.... I come out and put water on for tea.....I'm like you Peter...then once I leave the house I move to coffee....
BUT this all changes if someone other than me(hubby) makes coffee in the morning. Then I'll drink coffee. I've come to realize that I'm just a slacker when it comes to making coffee. Unless someone else makes it, I don't even drink coffee while at home! On the days when there's no coffee made, fairly often I'll stop at Tim's and pick up a 1/2 French vanilla
