  1. I’m still an optimist. I wish that everyone was happy, and that there is world peace. When I had a near perfect day the other day, I now have that wonderful memory to carry me through some (inevitable) tough times.

        • I did visit Starbucks on my trips to the US and must admit it really is third rate coffee compared to what one gets in Australia, truly, we get coffee here to die for, I think it was the European influence post war, although I’m still a cuppa tea sort of bloke; I don’t mind a coffee from any of the coffee shops here, No two are alike. Some even blend? their own stuff or whatever it is they do with it.

        • I’ve had one or two coffees from Starbucks, always brought to me by someone. I’ve never gone there; wouldn’t have any idea how to order. I’m content with my one cup of home brewed every morning.
