As one can see we have a little bit of snow hanging around. This is out our back door. It is hard to melt at 2 degrees. On a brighter note, our neighborhood has calmed down considerably since cold weather has set in. We have yet to see any transients this season sleeping under piles of newspapers or homeless drunks huddled next to a barrel set a blaze like we had expected.
Melissa and I found this coffee syrup last night. It is a regional item. Lots of coffee flavored items around here. We can now make virgin White Russians. I prefer the leaded Caucasian beverage myself.
We have been told that there is a coffee flavored brandy that is sold in these here parts that after a couple of drinks makes the opposite sex loose their inhibitions and well you know how the rest of the story. I feel inclined to try it but am a little apprehensive. I will probably stick to Sex Panther cologne. 60 percent of the time, it works every time and it's made with bits of real panther. It's science.
