CoffeeTime: TAKING UP THE MIDDLE PART OF THE ROAD

Years ago, as elementary students at a tiny country school, our bus driver took us to school in his huge station wagon. That meant we kids got to talk with him for an entire hour – both ways. Good-natured and chatty, he would entertain us as he drove. True stories, gigantic whoppers, or funny gossip,…

CoffeeTime: “TRUST THAT AIRLINE AGAIN – OR NOT”

The holiday fun and games were over, and we were ready to fly home.  But a middle of the night message informed us our flight was cancelled and we had to rebook. And we suddenly became birds without wings. I now have a pretty good idea how a Christmas turkey feels, in those left-over days…

One simple change in the wording of a timeless…

CoffeeTime: LYING ORANGES

Houston, we have a problem. Over-promising and then under-delivering. And I am not just referring to our government which, to my politically uneducated yet fairly logical mind, is definitely not delivering what was vehemently promised.   And I am also not referring to the advertising that vows, ‘After using our product for one month, you…

CoffeeTime: DINNER WITH THE TONGUE

For many folks, it’s that dreaded time again. The Christmas holiday dinner with the extended family.   The event that causes you to have to make a choice. A choice between seeing Mom’s happy smile because everyone came, or staying home so you don’t have to be around The Tongue this year.   You know…
