I said I'd rather drink Moxie, not because I like it (I don't, especially)
but because I find it a whole lot less distasteful than coffee. I know
there are still quite a few old-timers around here (NE) who think its
the best stuff ever.

Me? I'm a tea drinker, so I had my share of tea and happily left
my allotment of coffee to Gwynne! :)


(I was having a discussion--read: ranting--about it at work one day
some time back, regarding the bitterness of coffee, and the victim
of my ranting looked at me funny and said "whaddaya mean,... coffee
isn't bitter!". All I could do was snort.)

    Under no circumstances will I ever purchase anything offered to me as
    the result of an unsolicited e-mail message. Nor will I forward chain
    letters, petitions, mass mailings, or virus warnings to large numbers
    of others. This is my contribution to the survival of the online
