Desert was great. Dressing on the salad was tasty.

I passed it thinking it was Strawberry, perhaps I'll take a closer look.

I like names like Fred, Ruth or Adam from HOTD.

I think all the Trademarking is ridiculous. I mean you cannot say, "Let's Get Ready To Rumble" without Michael Buffer giving you the hairy eyeball.

Horrible news. I saw it covered (no sound) just after it happened. The place was pretty much flattened.

I think it went something like this...

Unless you want us to continue to file lawsuits until we drain your bank account of every last penny and you have to file bankruptcy you will agree to this press release and change your logo.

Based on their FB page this is the new one... ::)

FWIW - now the main page says I am "wsoublo" - perhaps that is my secret identity? ;)

The main page

Does not show I am logged in. When I click any subforum I am logged in.

Thought you should know.

I was wondering if anyone had been contacted yet to confirm they are signed up to judge?

If my daughter was dating someone just like me I'd shoot him.


The Pub / Re: Is Staples your office supply store?

Staples posted the statement below on FB about an hour ago.
We heard you! At Staples, we value all of our customers and appreciate your feedback. We now realize the rules of our Push It Forward contest were too restrictive and kept out legitimate businesses. Unfortunately, we can't change the rules once the contest is underway. But we will revise our rules to make sure future contests are more inclusive and reflect our commitment to helping all small businesses.

The Pub / Re: Looks nice but it's just an opener...

I guess what is innovative is a magnet to hold the cap. Still is just an opener.

I saw another one earlier which had a magnet to hold it to the fridge. Kinda had the same feeling about it.

Ooops, let me correct myself. I should have never said no resource. That statement was shown to be in error.

A blogger suggests coffee is served too hot and a mechanical engineer has a publication suggesting it is served too hot based on scald potential.

A recent survey shows...  ;D

- -

As far as 170-175, I have to agree there or even slightly cooler is where coffee may be by the time it touches someones lips. Add in creamer and it could be even colder. Also ice could be added.

But I believe the topic on point is Hot Coffee without all the fluff and the National Coffee Association and the Specialty Coffee Association of America (SCAA) both suggest serving temperatures in excess of 170F. So I'll change my statement from "no resource", to no major acknowledged association who deals exclusively in coffee suggests it be served at any less than 170F.  8)
