I have a sordid history with Starbucks and my mug. I can speak singularly about my mug even though years have passed because I’ve been using the same mug now for…jeez…probably 5 years or so. Before that, I had another one. And before that, I think it was the mug I used in High School.… Continue reading Starbucks: Eco-Unfriendly
Panera Bread Co. in Gainesville, GA (I presume it’s the same everywhere) won my choice in a place to sit early this morning before the county tag office opens. I first went to Starbucks from habit, though I quickly remembered that Starbucks would not due to sit a while.

Sunday, I gave him a vanilla Frappuccino from Starbucks (pictured); always a favorite. We’ve only just recently gotten him to actually hold… Continue reading Happy Birthday, Balthazar!!!
