So do we. I have a Nissan 32oz in the camper, but at work I use one of these. Press and travel mug in one.
Tess has one like that, and her own little stove to boil her water on when we camp. She can't stand waiting in line like very one else.

Those guys in BC are part of all the west coast pot smoking Liberalista lunacy, the whole west coast should just be it's own country.

It's part of our diabolical master plan. When complete we'll have the poutine market for ourselves. Muaaaahhhh.

Awwwwwwww, and you were doing so well here................


That's the way I am. I probably drink much more iced coffee than hot.

Hey, now! I've tried it. It's not the worst thing I've ever tasted (like beer), but not something I could get used to either.

Give it time. I had my first cup of coffee at 21, and decided to wait another 21 years for my second...

(tho' I always liked the smell!)

Hot coffee, I love smell, taste, & all. It's the iced coffee I can't get used to.

I started drinking after I was 60, I read somewhere that drinking coffee helps keep your mental faculties. When you get to be my age you want to keep all the faculties you have left. I used to work out my own calculus theorems in my head. Now I wonder what that squiggly sign means.

What if mental faculties were questionable to start with?

I'm looking at my officemates, who are both in their 60s, both pot-a-day coffee drinkers, and shudder to think what they'd be like without it.

Shortly after the last election. The only glitch has been that the BC people are really hesitant to give up their government health plan. There is talk about begging the Queen and PM to take them back.
