Lattes, Lizards and Laxatives

Oh c’mon. You didn’t really think I was done with the potty talk, did you? If you didn’t want to hear more you shouldn’t have shared so many light-hearted latrine stories!

Dear John ,

You are ‘privy’ to wearing one of my favorite doors. I don’t give you nearly enough accolades for the times I’ve been delighted to see your door.

Coffee at the End of July

If we were having coffee today, July 31st, we’d all be asking the same question:

WHERE IN THE HECK DID JUNE AND JULY GO?”

Having no better answer than when we asked it last year, we’d sigh and change the subject.

Shootin’ the Summer Breeze

If we were having coffee, I’d whisk us to Berlin, Germany to Dimension Alley, billed as the first 3-D Printer café.

In D-Alley’s own words, “The café serves traditional English fare: Cornish pasties, pies, scones with Strawberry Jam and Cream, cakes and biscuits. We have tea imported from the UK as well as great Berlin coffee.”

That’s not even the fun part!

The café features a 3-D printer so you can design and manufacture your own coffee cup, or perhaps a superhero with the face of your coffee-mate!

Don’t worry. If Berlin is too far to go for coffee, these printers are coming soon to a coffee shop near you.

The Name Game

While enjoying Aerial America on the Smithsonian Channel, I’ve mused about what we call ourselves in each of these 50 connected, yet vastly different, United States.

That led to musing about what residents in parts of other countries call themselves, and what names they give the demarcations that form legal, interior boundaries.

I know Canada has provinces.. I think Mexico has states, and Italy has regions. Beyond that I’m ignorant.  When I comment to across-the-pond blogging buddies, I don’t even know whether they call their country England or Great Britain, let alone what interior demarcations the countries of the United Kingdom use.

Sure, I could Google this. But wouldn’t it be fun to hear from you – either in comments here, or in a post of your own – helping me fill in some blanks?

Without any of us checking Google?
