Last Day of Winter

By the way, the groundhog was full of groundhog doo this year. Early spring my shiney hiney. (Is that worse than saying “my ass”? I was trying to keep my Y7 to PG rating. You know, in case Junior decides to see if I’m talking about him.)

Don’t forget to get your free iced coffee from Dunkin Donuts on Wednesday. Not all locations will participate, as it’s up to the franchisee I suppose, so check before you order. Mr. Dump is plotting out the route he’s going to take to make sure he can hit as many locations as humanly possible. But don’t worry, he will be ordering decafs. But that many decafs probably equals at least one real cup of coffee, right?

The last of the snow slid off the roof of my van this morning, so I’m ready for spring.

What Do They Use at Dunkies?

On the drive to work this morning (when else?) I heard a Cumberland Farms commercial for their coffee. You know, from that addict who, when her kids are bored, takes them to Cumbies for a “fountain drink”. Because nothing eases boredom more than your mom taking you to a convenience store for a sugar and caffeine-based beverage!

This morning she was telling us all that she stupidly thought the coffee at Cumbies couldn’t match what they sell at coffee shops, until she tried it. She stated that they use “imported beans”. Well doesn’t that sound classy! I have to say, I think that even Sanka is made with imported beans, but I could be wrong. Maybe farmers in Indiana have plowed under their corn and wheat to grow coffee. The only domestic coffee I’m aware of (and I’ll admit I’m no expert) is Kona, from Hawaii, and that stuff is high quality. Not that people think of Hawaii when they think of something being domestic, of course. Anyhoo, God Bless Cumberland Farms for importing coffee beans. It’s about time someone had the nerve to do so!
