Not just ANY poem, it had 5 stanzas, 20 lines, a personal poem that made her laugh AND cry. She was hugging my neck by the time she was done!!

OK, I thought I would take a moment to share with you a little thing that I call my little piece of heaven during my work day. Fondly known as Starbucks to us west coasters. The name can also elicit some violent rage in others due to what some would call "corporate sell out." others would argue not the best coffee, and although I would agree, one thing that I do appreciate is that no matter what, wherever I go, the espresso tastes exactly the same, and there is something to be said about the feeling you get, the comfort, in a warm cup of coffee when you are in a strange place.


Every day, we go to work hoping to do two things: share great coffee with our friends and help make the world a little better. It was true when the first Starbucks opened in 1971, and it’s just as true today.

Back then, the company was a single store in Seattle’s historic Pike Place Market. From just a narrow storefront, Starbucks offered some of the world’s finest fresh-roasted whole bean coffees. The name, inspired by Moby Dick, evoked the romance of the high seas and the seafaring tradition of the early coffee traders.

In 1981, Howard Schultz (Starbucks chairman, president and chief executive officer) had first walked into a Starbucks store. From his first cup of Sumatra, Howard was drawn into Starbucks and joined a year later.

A year later, in 1983, Howard traveled to Italy and became captivated with Italian coffee bars and the romance of the coffee experience. He had a vision to bring the Italian coffeehouse tradition back to the United States. A place for conversation and a sense of community. A third place between work and home. He left Starbucks for a short period of time to start his own Il Giornale coffeehouses and returned in August 1987 to purchase Starbucks with the help of local investors.

From the beginning, Starbucks set out to be a different kind of company. One that not only celebrated coffee and the rich tradition, but that also brought a feeling of connection.

Our mission to inspire and nurture the human spirit – one person, one cup, and one neighborhood at a time.

Today, with more than 15,000 stores in 50 countries, Starbucks is the premier roaster and retailer of specialty coffee in the world. And with every cup, we strive we bring both our heritage and an exceptional experience to life.--Starbucks website



Oh, in case you were wondering, I addd a map with locations for you...





:Rofl:

Ok, yes I have way too much time on my hands!!!

Multi-task Scott...we know you are up to it. If anything, seeing all the parts strung out across the back 40 will give us all something to cheer about. You can be just like us

The red "X" is where I live. My 19 YO "modern" son is telling me that a Starbucks just opened in Lake City, about 25 miles from me. So new it is not on the map! I would love to one day go with you and have some coffee!

Progress? I drove her down the road, like I always do. I bought another oil filter to replace the other after I loaded her up with Rotella, and I turned on the new windshield wipers for the first time ever!! What progress? I have 4 sons and a wife.... now THAT'S multi-tasking!! Truly, she is so close to be road-worthy I just want to drive her for awhile before I tear her down. Clay's build has been so long I'm afraid to start on mine!

My wife makes GREAT coffee! Sitting on the porch, coffee in hand, pork steaks on the smoker, Jeep parts scattered around the yard, and a good story. It don't get no better'n that!
