"Coffee leads men to trifle away their time, scald their chops, and spend their money, all for a little base, black, thick, nasty, bitter, stinking nauseous puddle water." ~The Women's Petition Against Coffee, 1674If it ain't broke, fix it 'til it is.
Money can't buy happiness, but it sure makes living with misery a lot easier!
