A Halloween Coffee Story

From an email I received:

A man was walking home alone late one foggy night, when behind him he hears:




Walking faster, he looks back and through the fog he makes out the image of an upright casket banging its way down the middle of the street toward him.




Terrified, the man begins to run toward his home, the casket bouncing quickly behind him




BUMP. ..


He runs up to his door, fumbles with his keys, opens the door, rushes in, slams and locks the door behind him.

However, the casket crashes through his door, with the lid of the casket clapping




on his heels, the terrified man runs.

Rushing upstairs to the bathroom, the man locks himself in. His heart is pounding; his head is reeling; his breath is coming in sobbing gasps.

With a loud CRASH the casket breaks down the door.

Bumping and clapping toward him.

The man screams and reaches for something, anything, but all he can find is a bottle of cough syrup!

Desperate, he throws the cough syrup at the casket...


(hopefully you're really ready for this!!!)

The coffin stops!

(Now you see why I posted this at a COFFee blog.)

Want Coffee, But Don't Want To Add CO2 To The Air?

At the CarbonFund.org Blog: Coffee, Certified CarbonFree! This post contains a press release:

Coffee Roaster Becomes Nation's First to Offer 100% CarbonFree® Certified Coffee
Grounds for Change, a family-owned coffee roaster, is the first in the nation to comprehensively offset its coffee’s carbon emissions.
Click through for the rest.

This has been on my mind lately when I shop so this is good news. For example, I live in California and try to buy only local olive oil. There is great olive oil made in California, and it seems like shipping a heavy liquid across the ocean has to burn a lot of carbon. But it is hard to find local products like this except in specialty stores.
