    Is there some other way to drink coffee? If so, never tried it.

    I'd weigh 500 pounds if I added sugar and cream to my two pots/day of home brewed coffee.

    Spent a year setting up a flight department for the co-founder of TH. The put an actual store in the hangar at Mt. Hope. Everything from there has tasted bitter ever since

    TH coffee (Mother Parkers) is just mid grade floor sweepings. McD's has actually come up with a pretty good product. My favorite is still Starbucks PikePlace. Oh, and black."

    First time I ordered coffee from TH they asked "Regular coffee"? Me, thinkng espresso or Latte was maybe on the menu, said "Just regular coffee."

    Turns out TH has their own lingo. Regular is cream and sugar.

    Four homemade beers and a shot of Makers Mark last night. The old man ain't what he used to be.

    On top of that, I must have been tipsier than I thought I was ... I seem to have misplaced an hour of my life somehwere.

    I drink my coffee black, at room temperature, and often a couple of days old. I consider myself a happy camper.

    After swearing off McD's coffee ages ago, recently someone convinced me of it's vast improvement so I gave it another try. I was not impressed.

    At least one old timer got burnt by scalding hot McDonald's coffee so you are assured of being happier than some.

    Starting a bickering match never ends well. I have to wonder what forum this artist was on that inspired him to draw this comic:

    CBad, I'm confused. Are you saying there is something actually wrong with this cartoon? I think its a surprisingly apt caricature of the earnestness of many members of BF.

    Trying to communicate what one thinks is true is not bickering, in itself. It IS adult self-expression, probably coupled with a desire to teach. Both are virtues, in my book.

    Overall I find this much more banal and less on-any-conceivable-topic than any of the usual divergences in 50+ pre-Pub.

I could have understood moving it to nutrition (and I would not have commented at that move), but FOO?

    I think Pub 51 will be a less than useful thread, but give it a try. But I strongly suggest not cutting off, moving or telling anyone to take their topic to Pub 51.

    Now I am going to out a BF member for a violation that he did not know he committed. Please leave him alone and do not mess with his threads. I already alerted him of the violation.

    The returning 50+ member started a thread in 50+ titled:

    "Recommendations for a Touring Bike for the Plus 50"

    Someone immediately jumped in and gave alittle advice but also told the poster (in a nice way) it should be taken to the touring forum. The returning member started almost the exact thread in the touring forum.

    Guess what, the touring forum is a little burnt out on "what touring bike" threads, so they have five replies touching a little on the OP concerns.

    Now look at the 18 50+ replies. Are not the 50+ responses much broader and more useful to the OP. See why we like 50+ the way it is and sometimes have a valid reason for having our threads here, even if they might fit the subject of other forums?
    Presumably the returning member who wanted to choose a touring bike did not search in Touring, or could not succeed while searching in Touring, so just decided to ask his question.

    Ok, I just read the other Touring thread, in Touring, and I don't see anything there but helpfulness, from a position of knowledge and experience. What's to complain about? Maybe there is a Touring faction that is a bit burnt out, but I just saw good helpful posts.

    Q Why did the hipster get burned?

    A Because he drank his coffee before it was cool.

    If you think I was putting down the touring forum, I was not. I post in the touring forum and have learned a great deal myself from that forum.

    The search function for BFs yields mixed results. I actually have greater success searching BFs using google or bing. So I encourage posters do a search but I realize that they will often not find what they are looking for.

    The touring forum thread only has 5 replies and is dead. Yes they tried to help the OP and did note that their size 13 and 14 feet did not overlap their LHT. Thing is, I suspect they have a much larger size frame which makes a big difference. Yes they did address best they could ONE aspect of the OP.

    The 50+ thread gave a much greater wealth of information for the OP with many alternate considerations.

    It would have been sad if the mods moved the 50+ thread to touring and the OP missed out on the 26 replies from here. Is that not sufficient to complain about the recent moving of 50+ threads to other forums?

    Did you also note that the thread the OP updated to, was the 50+ thread?

    A Psychiatrist and a Proctologist were going to go into business together. They couldn't decide if they should name the practice Rears and Queers or Nutts and Butts!

    I lived in rural Kansas in the 70's. I was told that if you don't drink your coffee black, that people won't take you seriously!

    So what is the difference between an Ophthalmologist and a Proctologist? The Ophthalmologist looks you in the eye when he gives you your diagnosis. Oh, I like my coffee black, thank you.

    We have a Proctologist in the neighborhood with a fishing boat. Everyone calls him The Rear Admiral.

    Well fine.

    Why do perfectly normal people go into "proctology"?

    They ask vulnerable students if they want to get in 18 holes a day. The innocent students think they're signing up for golf lessons.

    One of the more colourful Canadian politicians of recent times is a fellow by the name of John Crosby. Story goes that he was the keynote speaker at an opthamologist's convention.
    Behind the speaker's podium, mounted high on the wall was a huge eyeball. John is reported to have turned around, looked at it, and after a perfectly timed pause said, "well, I'm certainly glad this is not a proctologist's convention."

    Umm, where was I? Oh yeah, coffee. I live a little less than 1/2 mile due north of a coffee roasting plant. On days when the wind is blowing in off the lake, there is a most pleasing aroma in the neighbourhood.

    I live up the hill from an Ocean Spray plant. Great smells drift this way as well.

    Is that an Ocean Spray Cranberry plant? I thought cranberries only grew in bogs like here in Massachusetts, yet you post from the Mojave desert.
