Thread Coffee

This month’s Angel Cup Coffee Bean delivery comes from Thread Coffee.


By now, I’ve come to the conclusion that whole beans smell amazing regardless of where they are from.  These beans have the usual smell of nuts, cherry or berry, and chocolate. Strangely enough, I also smell something similar to that smell in a glass after drinking a bottle of coco cola that was poured into a cup.

After grinding, the smelling notes of nuts, cherry and chocolate were subdued.  There wasn’t anything particular striking from the ground coffee honestly.  The latte was buttery and smooth.  The latte also had a very subdued flavor chocolate and nut flavor.  Very subtle.  There was also very little after taste with each sip.

I think I’m going to enjoy drinking this month’s coffee.

Trump’s Remark on Charlottesville

Is there absolutely any point in confronting Trump on his many remarks… the latest being his “too late for that” Monday statement and then back-pedaling from it today.  Nothing Trump says (or doesn’t say) surprises me anymore.  His initial statement on Saturday wasn’t enough… but I saw it more of Trump riding the fence trying to find that perfect balance where he doesn’t alienate his core supporters and the everyone else who has some common sense and human decency.

Trump should just go all in and be the racist/sexist/isolationist/egotistical President that he campaigned on.  Screw the fake media.


All or Nothing

Have you seen Amazon Prime’s All or Nothing TV show?  I just finished Season 2 which talked about the LA Rams (disastrous) 2016 season.  They apparently ended the season 4-12.  Yet they were still ranked 3rd in NFC West in front of the 2-14 San Francisco 49ers.

This total access into the daily lives of the Rams’ coaches and players is fascinating.  I can’t imagine how many hours of footage was recorded to be summarized down to only 8 1-hour episodes.  But these 8 episodes cover quite a lot starting with their move from St. Louis to LA.  The show covers quite a few games as well as sheds light into some of the reason why Goff replaced Keenum.  The show ends with the Rams firing Fisher and hiring McVay as the head coach.

Overall it’s a pretty good show to watch while waiting for the 2017 season to start.

Bernie asked me for help?

With the recent failure of the Republican Senate to repeal the ACA, I hope Obama’s legacy will remain intact until a newer better plan comes along.  Specifically, I think our current healthcare woes won’t go away until a government sponsored healthcare is enacted.  What would it look like?  I have no idea.

Even Bernie has no idea…. but he sent a message via the PAC asking about healthcare.


And one of the questions, I gave my idea of what I think might work.
