The FREE coffee at the lodge sucks so I paid $3.50 of some esspresso with coffee added but that sucked just the same so I got the free coffee the next day and just drank the crap.

I just don't care for Pete's coffee. The beans, in my opinion, based on observation, are low quality. Plenty of broken pieces and odd sized beans. Roasted for maximum shelf life before flavor.

Coffee at the Ahwahnee dinning room, not too bad.

Some qualified coffee roaster needs to get in there and get things squared away.

Isn't Christmas over yet?

Trying to watch a couple games today, every other commercial was a goddamn Christmas ad.

Ram Trucks, I'm talking to you. Mercedes, shitcan Santa until Halloween.

Enough already! Jesus!

Campaign ads are all done on election day. Christmas ads should be done on Christmas.

Samsung won't sell their new 110" Ultra High Def TV here. I guess only
S Koreans, Chinese, and Middle Easterners are worthy of the $152K unit.

Got my wifi to work.

So no more first world problems for me in this so-called third world country.

I hate it when others go round and round about something not actually being between the lines, up to par, or not squared away.

Not really.

I hate it when I can't think of anything good to post and everyone else can.

Brandon, your post sucks. :0)

Jeez, Frank, you must drive a Veyron if a two mile drive is not worth $30.

The Miele "concierge" (appliance installment techs in plain speak) show up at "bill to" address in Santa Cruz, instead of "deliver to" address in Bozeman AND a month early.

I've been wearing my old ski socks lately the ones that come up to the knee. I don't ski anymore and I only wear my logging boots when I go to The City so they don't get used much and I figure they stimulate my leg nerves (in an unpleasant way, but sub-pain sensation is good!) and I can walk around in my bathrobe dude abiding till its time for my noon day nap!

My point balance was insufficient to pay for the airfare. WHile I considered the options, the price for the same flight WENT UP by $60.

You were price-optimized!

They have software that sticks it to you like that, automatically. Its like raising the price of bottled water in advance of a big storm... gotchya. Take a 10-day'weather-feed', run a series demand simulation algorithms (pioneered from game theory by, you guessed it, the airlines), toss out the highs and lows, average the rest and figure out how many cases of water you can move at any given price point / profit margin and voila, your investors are assured you are charging as much as you can without hurt over all sales.

These demand patterns apply to the 2nd and 3rd world too. They also get used in science, for things like climate predictions ;)
