Saw this recently outside an outlet mall – a Pringles Vending Machine!
This machine is pretty rare, much like the Starbucks Claw Machine game, also seen at a mall.
The flavor choices are the usual ones you see in the grocery stores.
Also seen at this location was a Dippin Dots vending machine.
The Climate Change Meme
Here are a few actual quotes from Donald Trump and Mike Pence on Global Warming and Climate Change:
Donald Trump – “The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive” – ( source: Twitter @RealDonaldTrump 2012 )
as of October 2016 there were 62,000 likes on this ignorant comment. YIKES!
Donald Trump – “NBC News just called it the great freeze – coldest weather in years. Is our country still spending money on the GLOBAL WARMING HOAX?” ( source: Twitter …
Looking forward to the next Breaking News on the Jersey Shore Reunion Tour, followed by the news of a NEW Facebook logo.
In other news, science confirms that the First Coffee of the Day is Indeed the best cup of the day.
Creationists disregard the findings.
Learned this sad news over a morning coffee. A sad morning indeed.
Sorry, Woot is not an acceptable word.
Cut to commercial, can’t follow instructions. This show needs a silrnce button like Around the Horn on ESPN.
Republican discussion like The Talk, minus the clapping.
Coffee, please. And the remote.
There you have it.
While playing Scrabble, aka Words With Friends, over a night decaf, the answer is revealed — Bae is NOT a word.

The way to fix this is to uninstall the plug in and try another social network plugin. (such as BuddyPress)
Only logged in users can view their own activity and friends activity. Neat, but not useful.

The Coffee Management
One of those words people use often, but is OBVIOUSLY not a real word in English.
I thank Words With Friends for this awesum lesson in the English language.
Note: Awesum is not a real word.
Please spell Awesome correctly. Thanks a lot, the Coffee Cafe Management.

Yes, the awful realization when you are reminded about the last day of the weekend.
Weekend Over, not cool.
Thanks for reminding me.
It means going back to the Morning Coffee routine.
One of those puzzles you want to solve. The first may be HOW the voice notification was enabled. More important to you now is HOW to turn this off.
It isn’t in the Accessibility section, and it isn’t in the Text to Speech section.
It is in the Language and Input section, pictured below.
There it is! The Read Notifications Aloud section. This may be useful when you are driving, so don’t forget where this is so you can enable it someday.
New Message From…

Sunday’s are usually packed with football fans wanting to watch their favorite team while eating served food. As you can see in the photo, the TVs are more than enough to show the Sunday games. You don’t always have to show up early to get near your game. You should be able to see the game you want, or you can ask the waiter/waitress to change one of the TVs in view to the game you want.
You have the best chance to sit near the game you want is to …
Not like we just crave coffee after seeing this video.
Just for your Kardashian Obsession.
Or, for the rest of us, our coffee obsession.
Song lyric from a new Neil Young song regarding Starbucks and GMOs.
The Monsanto Years is the title of the new album.
Doesn’t mention Starbucks, but is said to be about the coffee chain.
A simple protest song perhaps? May be popular amongst the 55+ crowd that enjoys the folk rock.
Care to voice an opinion on the GMO song?

Cheap, compared to the grocery store prices. Felt like they were giving away ice cream. At 4.99 it seemed too good to be true, since other stores charge over $7 for the Blue Bell.
Note: Total recall on this ice cream in April of 2015 due to Listeria concerns.
Empty Blue Bell Freezer Case
Holding off on Blue Bell for awhile.
Mocha, not with coffee, but in that Coffee category.
Always check the freezer at Walgreens for ice cream deals.
The only drawback is that Walgreens tends to have less choices than a grocery store.

Sunday must have been coffee day as there were many sample booths in Sams Club offering coffee.
One booth, pictured here, had your choice of coffee (we chose Tully’s). This was a super dark roast, in an official Keurig cup. Can’t beat good free coffee.
The other booths, another Keurig sampler, and a booth with Dunkin Donuts coffee. The DD offered a variety of creamers. The booth was positioned in the dairy section.
These huge boxes were $5 off
Image you can post to Facebook about coffee.
Go ahead, post it.
This was the Turkey sandwich, which looks way better on the big photos at Starbucks, than this mini sandwich in a box. The turkey was sliced quite thick, but, well, it was a small sandwich. I wouldn’t consider going to Starbucks for lunch, maybe an Instead of Lunch kind of lunch. It was fresh, and tasted good at least. This sandwich + tall coffee cost over $8 (Aug 2013)
