Ok. I have to say right up front that I find runny egg yolks incredibly disgusting. I like scrambled eggs, and I like hard boiled eggs. I am not a big fan of fried eggs, although if the yolks are set I may eat them. I will confess that I sometimes quite enjoy a Sausage McMuffin from McDonald’s. But despite the beautiful Orgeon lettuce and tomato (not to mention the bacon) on that wonderfully seedy bread, I would not even think of eating the pictured sandwich with that nasty egg yolk oozing out of it.
Having been born and raised in New Orleans, my tastes in coffee are probably very different than most people’s. While I am very flexible and will drink almost any coffee in a pinch, what I really like the most is New Orleans’ style coffee and chicory. As I type this I am drinking a bit of French Market coffee and chicory. We can get one pound cans of this in our Safeway. We usually prefer to order Community Coffee and Chicory. The price is not bad at all, especially if you sign up for auto-renewal and all of us in this house just love the coffee. It definitely has a very strong flavor. You’re most likely to enjoy coffee with chicory if you prefer darker, stronger roasts. (Click either of those links to buy from Amazon.)
I have now made it through my eighth Xpendapalooza. (Having typed that word a whole bunch of times on a whole bunch of shoutouts to new investors and old friends, I decided this year expressly against using the bracketed capital [X] at the beginning. Honestly, it would have been more typing than I was willing to do. While I touch-type fairly well most of the time the bracket characters it seems will never be familiar to my fingers and it would have just been to much effort to have done all of the messages I did. This Xpenda seemed to be low on new contacts (indeed there were not near as many post in the newbies thread this time) but was a wonderful experience for me with lots and lots of old friends stopping by to say hello. It’s the people that I’ve met and continue to talk with, even if only occasionally from time to time, that are the real reward to me for the effort that I put into social networking. And what a wonderful weekend to hear from so many old friends.
