    You know the South doesn't really have cowboys, right? That's West.

    ...now we will segway ourselves into talking about boots...:rimshot:

    And I love it when the Dallas Cowboyws choke in December. Romo is the main culprit.

    People in the south wear cowboy boots? I bet there are more cowboy boots in Brooklyn than in North Carolina.

    I saw my fair share of them, but it's probably that I remember those because they stood out. I suppose as a percentage of the overall population it's not much at all, and the more west you go the more you see them. Anyway, I've always liked the look of cowboy boots with a tan cotton suit.

    Texas has wanted to be their own country, and I fully encourage both them and Florida to do so. The US filled its mutant quota a really long time ago.

    The great state of Maryland lies below the Mason-Dixon line, or maybe it runs through the state, I am not sure. In any case, does that mean I can say that I live in the south?

    Technically, yes. But it surely isn't Mississippi.

    I had dinner with a family friend recently who was born in Philly but raised in LA. It was around the early 60s when he was in high school and his class embarked on a 70 day camping trip through the south. A few of the 20 boys on the trip were Jewish, including him, and one was African American (a boy who lived next door to Nat King Cole and, as such, was the richest of the bunch by a long way; the son of a surgeon). To say it was a misguided adventure would be an understatement. Harrowing is how I would describe it. They took a northern route home.

    Since we're just all over the map...oh wait, the above gif is just classic...anyways, do we have any coffee fanatics here?
    I have to purchase a coffee maker for the coffee fanatic at my house. The below is her favorite choice, Nespresso. Anyone?

    I think all the k-cup/pod type coffee makers produce really shitty tasting coffee. I wouldn't touch any of them.

    You can make yourself a way better cup using a $30 Aeropress.

    It's much more involved than one of those fully automatic jobs, but I have always loved these:

    Yeah, and I guess it depends what type of coffee she loves.

    I mean, some people are coffee "snobs" in that they buy high quality and higher cost whole bean coffee and go from there. Other people are just big coffee drinkers and Dunkin Donuts or Starbucks does the trick. I'm somewhere in the middle.

    So if she's not too fussy about what type of coffee, Aeropress and some of the other stuff where you do it by hand might not be necessary.

    That said... those pods really do suck lol. I think it's because of the brewing and sealing process to get it into pod form. They all come off as being watery with a burnt, over-roasted taste to me.

    We are loaners Stitch. Up in Boston, all my friends consider me a southerner, but while I was living in SC, they all considered me a Yankee. I think that is why so many people born and raised in the Baltimore area end up living there all their lives. That and the crabs are good.
