Yes.  Although the stuff over there seems to taste better than the dregs that they bottle and send here.
I would be happy to agree with you, but then both of us would be wrong.

Ethiopian coffee. The best coffee I've ever had.

I prefer the African beans to the South American.  I have coffee from Ethiopia as well as Kenya, and they are my favorites.

btw - I also prefer African tobacco to most of the South American and North American.  Cameroon wrapper with fillers from Tanzania and Cameroon make a darn good cigar.  In fact, I think that I am going to smoke one paired with a good strong cup of coffee.

Thanks for the tip. Next cigar I'll try will be a Cameroon. Would you recommend something? Preferably cheap(er).

I really don't understand the point of various diet foods and drinks. Why not to eat healthy food instead of various diet versions of non-healthy foods?

Coffee, Peets House Blend... But with cream from grass fed cows kept on pasture. It's so thick you have to use a spoon. I got from my Amish Farm connection. This time of year the cows are eating fast growing spring grass so the raw milk and cream are the best of the year.



Uhhhh most "cream" is so thick as to use a spoon.

You are just not used to real cream. The viscosity of the cream has nothing to do with grass or the Amish.

I don't understand calling one food healthy and another not.

Well I do, if you are wealthy and unimaginative enough to afford such ridiculous anxieties.

Well, you could say it allows a person to count certain things in their diets (sugar, calories, so forth) and organize it this way, so as to create a total picture of metabolism and what you ought to do in terms of exercise. Regular soda has 250 calories a large bottle, diet has 0. So if you have a diet instead of a regular, you can eat a little more food instead later on. Or something like that. Maybe it's silly, since I'm not in the healthiest society anyway, and I really should just ride my bike more. But it's almost 100 Fahrenheit today where I live, and I was thirsty. :)

Oh, wow. That cream sounds so delicious.
Wish that I lived near you.

I can taste the difference in creams and cheeses from grass-fed and grain-fed cows.
The grass-fed butters and cheeses are much more creamy. In addition, these dairy products are easier to cut as they have more natural vitamin A and D. However, the artificially supplemented cheeses and butters from grain-fed cows is more difficult to cut and spread.

Diet cokes with their artificial sweeteners (aspartame or splenda) wreck havoc with our bodies.
When you get a few years older, then you will feel the difference. It is not worth the risk.
I get horrible headaches whenever I drink or eat anything with aspartame or splenda.

In addition, all carbonated beverages interfere with muscular contractions and can cause painful leg and arm cramps. In fact, I have experienced painful leg cramps after imbibing regular or diet sodas. Therefore, I avoid them like the plague.

I just enjoyed another cup of spearmint tea.

I don't know what you can get over there, since you guys are allowed to buy Cubans.  I believe that Fuente wraps their cigars with Cameroon unless they specifically say otherwise.  Most of their top cigars, like the Don Carlos and Signature blends are wrapped Cameroon.  They are not too expensive. 
I would be happy to agree with you, but then both of us would be wrong.

Uhhhh most "cream" is so thick as to use a spoon.

You are just not used to real cream. The viscosity of the cream has nothing to do with grass or the Amish.

Missed the point again, did ya?

Real cream is so thick you need a spoon

Most cream people use is from the store and rarely needs a spoon

Grass fed milk and cream are the best tasting and the best for you if it is not pasteurized or homogenized

Early spring grass is fast growing and produces the healthiest and best tasting milk and cream

It's Springtime around here

clearer now?

Store-bought cream is thin because it's not actually pure cream. It has zero to do with whether the cows were grass-fed.

I just finished two helpings of my favorite elixir.  I save the juice from canned fruits in a container in the refrigerator.  They must still have been good since they did not smell bad (they had been there since Pascha).  I pour half of a tall glass full over ice.  I then add sherbert flavored vodka and top it all off with club soda. 

The taste is heavenly.

We must be freaking some people out here big time.  ::)
They prefer beer and red while we like left over veggie or fruit juice.
I gather monks do the same as they do not want to waste perfectly good food.

The last drink I had was an herbal cocktail (a mixture of herbs in a tea bag).

Coke. I'm trying to stay sober. At least until the exams are over  :)

Coke for me is anything but sobering. The high dosage of caffeine puts me to sleep, the carbonation causes muscle cramps in my legs, and then it gives me stomach cramps. Then I would be too miserable to study.

When I was a graduate student, I would drink green tea during my studies.

Water, coca cola and lemonade.
Eucharist fast is soon up and it`s like +30 degrees celsius outside.

Hope to go through the divine liturgi without fainting.
I will not be posting or participating here anymore.
They claim this is an Orthodox Christian forum.
Well, it is not!

You're right about the muscle cramps. It's killing me.

It is when someone drinks vinegar and wormwood and then urinates into a glass already half full of battery acid.
I would be happy to agree with you, but then both of us would be wrong.

Hey, that could cause a painful reaction.

I am going to drink some Organic Cranberry-Apple Juice (TJs of course).

Troops and civilians in India liked their ale but so the story goes much spoiled in transit from England. A Burton, Staffordshire, brewery produced a hoppy ale that appeared to survive the lengthy and often rough sea voyage well. Thus in time this product of pale malt and the much liked Burton water became India Pale Ale or IPA. The first alcoholic drink I bought and tasted was IPA, simply because I assumed pale might equate to mild. Wrong, I hated it. Still the chaps in India enjoyed it, even if I didn't.

I need a healthy fruit drink that will give me my daily fruit supplements since I can't stomach eating them; is V8 good?

Once I get past the bitter taste of an IPA, I find that it's actually quite good drinking.

V8 is part of Monsanto's huge world wide monopolies.
More than likely, it has a lot of rat genes and feces in it.
I would definitely not buy it.

For a guy, try Trader Joe's Organic Cranberry Apple Juice.
It is delicious. And if you do not like the sugar high, dilute it half with water.

I am having some more TJ's Organic Cranberry Apple. :)
And no, I do not work for that store.
