Letter A #AtoZchallenge Coffee Theme

#AtoZchallenge 2018

Welcome to letter A of my Coffee Themed blogging from A to Z challenge 2018 offering.

Click here for a FREE SAMPLE of coffee made out of the bat dung (guano) from bats who drank the coffee first! 

Okay, okay... sorry... had to. There is actually sorta cat poop coffee, but it's expensive.  Happy April Fools Day.

A is for Entenmann's Caramel Apple coffee. This should give you an idea of my personal coffee flavor profile, as this is one of my favorites. I like it "black" with half a teaspoon of either sugar or honey. (I have also enjoyed it unsweetened.)

It's a strong flavor and a baked goods aroma. It tastes great with a bowl of ice cream.

That's not a moon

Setting aside the sinister function, and the fact that it's fiction, let's discuss the Death Star for a moment.

Was it built like a round-looking office building?

Always "upright"?

Or was it designed like a planet,  the floors having a slight arc to them as they form inner layers of the circle?
((( )))

Did it have only one axis? Consider that creatures from other worlds would have worked on it.  It could have improved mobility by being able to "roll" in any direction. Consider how a professional throws a bowling ball,  for example.

I don't have a point. I'm just pondering.

Why do we have hostage negotiators

I'm just sitting here wondering why hostage negotiators exist. If the solution to 100% prevention of gun violence is to have more guns on the scene (according to the 45th president), and SWAT already has guns, why do we have hostage negotiators? The lives of a handful of adults at a store or a bank aren't worth more than hundreds of children in a school. Do those people in the midst of committing a crime not know that cops and SWAT have guns? Just knowing it is supposed to prevent the crime. Haven't armored trucks, train cars, and stage coaches had armed guards for hundreds of years now? Has that been a full proof deterrent? Is money worth as much as the lives of children? Castles have traditionally been well armed since the beginning. Has no royal ever lost their life while in their castle surronded by armed guards? Or have many kingdoms been overthrown?

There must be some proof, in all of human history, that increasing weapons prevents crime at an astronomically high rate. Some deterrent must have been full proof, right?

Just pondering.

Coffee is my Theme #AtoZchallenge

#atozchallenge theme reveal

I'm doing the A to Z blogging challenge again this year. 
I'm going to blather on about one of my favorite subjects:

My taste profile might be different from yours.
I might know something about this tasty beverage that you don't.
Guess we'll find out!

Lumosity Trouble Brewing

As you were kind enough to stop by today, I'll kick off with this game.
I play Lumosity to keep my mind sharp. Also, it's really fun.
One of my favorite games in the collection is "Trouble Brewing."
As you can see from the screenshots, it's a game where you play as a barista.
(It's a memory game, really.)
But there you are, making coffee.
Lumosity is playable both online and on mobile.
It takes between 8 to 15 minutes a day to complete the training.
(You get 3 games a day as a free member. 
5 games a day is the recommended amount for premium, 
though you can play as many as your heart desires.)
^ There's your invitation! ^

My April posts will be more about the actual drink.
This just seemed like a fun way to reveal my theme.

Pinterest PSA

My husband and I were sending each other pins from our phones last night. Our Pinterest inboxes were NOT showing them. We had to go into the inbox, hit "new message," write something, hit send, then the messages/pins conversation would show up.

The only reason we found out we had pin messages from each other on our mobile apps was because we were sitting in the same room. How many people have sent me pins that I don't see because there's no notice in the inbox? His inbox only showed two conversations (our friend and his cousin). He obviously had more, mine to say the least.

Our apps and phones are up to date. I'm putting this out there in case others think someone on Pinterest is ignoring you.

School is for learning NOT for dying


As I'm not a student in a school  (being an adult), I can only watch and read about the bold taking part today,  standing up for themselves and others. I did the one other thing I could think to do -- I asked Congress to pay attention.

Pi Day

Irrational but well rounded

This Pi day image goes well with the name of my blog,  don't you think?

It goes even better with my Facebook page.
