I'm surprised Seattle isn't first with all the Starbucks on every
corner!

I'm surprised they left out Boston. There is a Dunkin Donuts on every
corner.

Me too. And there are other brands in between. It is hard to drive for 5
blocks here without encountering at least one drive up coffee place.

That's true too. And oh how that coffee stinks! My husband sent me in to
get coffee once and I quickly learned what "regular" means. I would have
assumed it meant black. No. I guess black means black. I can not drink
coffee with sugar and milk.

In Boston, regular means with cream, no sugar.

Hanging out with my dad a thousand miles away (and many years ago), we
would often stop to get him a takeout "Boston coffee." Same thing:
cream, no sugar.

They aren't on every corner (yet), although Starbucks has two stands in
the hospital where I do research. In Vancouver, there are two large
Starbucks on either side of Robson Street. The comedian Lewis Black
ranted on a similar situation in Houston several years ago. I can
understand this in Houston or Dallas, since turning left or crossing at
the crosswalk can often be hazardous to your health there.

I hate those slideshows which require you to keep clicking and loading a new
batch of advertisements for every single item. I didn't read beyond the
first page.

I don't know what browser you're using but it's either the wrong one
or you don't have the right add-ons. I didn't see any ads, but I'm
using FF with ad-blocker and popup blocker.

I love cooking with wine.
Sometimes I even put it in the food.

Oh, I don't see the ads, but the pages take forever to *try* to load. Did
you still have to click one-by-one to see each city in the list? If so, ****
'em.

It switches as fast as I can click them. Are you still using dial-up?

If you mean did I use the arrow to advance, yes I did. All the images
are grouped as thumbnails below the large image, but you have to
enlarge them to see which city it is. When I scrolled through, the
images loaded fast in 1-1.5 seconds each and I have a crappy
connection. I'm paying for 20 Mb/s but my best speed tonight at
speedtest.net was only 18.44 Mb/s.

I just don't feel like playing the "click me" game. Why can't they just put
up a single list? It would be *easier* to do that -- but then they wouldn't
have as many ad spaces to sell, would they?
