She’s got that valley girl accent down…
“Here we go…” mumbles Maggie Smith, on her way to a third Oscar perhaps. The most successful television series in Public Television history is now coming to movie theaters this September.
In this luscious trailer at 1 minute 39 seconds in, there’s a gay kiss. Perhaps a hint there’s more of the juicy sub-plot we gasped at during the early seasons.
Happy Sunday. It’s turned out to be a pretty nothing day. Being that it is Sunday the day of rest.
I should be wrestling with my MailChimp account and firing off the latest email marketing campaign.
Yet all I can think of is first holy communion Easter raisin bread. Mom used to make it when I was a youngster. We made some in her honor last week on Mother’s day and I can’t get enough of it.
So here’s to cravings, and swirls of raisins and nothingness on Sundays!
Special thanks to Church Street Cafe in SF for the perfect cup of coffee and raisin swirl for a nothing kind of a day.
We celebrated mother’s day at my brother’s this year. Sis and I baked a couple of loafs in Mom’s honor. Here she is:
Here’s the closest thing I could find recipe wise on YouTube:
Vietnamese spices take these chicken nuggets to the next level at the Sweet Hut in Midtown, Atlanta Georgia.
It was difficult resisting all of the gorgeous sweets, cakes, pastries and tarts the bakery is well known for. But because so many people mentioned the nuggets on Yelp, I just had to try them, and was not disappointed.
The place gets very busy in the evenings, but lunch was not too crowded. There was sidewalk seating to enjoy the pleasant spring Atlanta afternoon. And no panhandlers! Take that San Francisco.
Wow the flavor combination of coffee and coconut is intensely pleasurable.
Only $1.69 at Castro Coffee, a tiny hole in the wall place next door to the Castro Theater in San Francisco.
Three tables with chairs outside on the sunny sidewalk. Watch the world go by, cruise the people in line for the movies.
Judging from the comments on Youtube, a lot of people like to study with this delicious, relaxing, non-intrusive jazz playing softly in the background.
We gave it a listen here at Cup Of Jim corporate headquarters, and concur. So much more was accomplished and the stress levels stayed quite low.
Here’s this from the Cafe Music BGM Channel’s Youtube:
Formed in 2013, our band consists of four members: pianist, guitarist, bassist, and drummer. Saxophonists, trumpeters, and vocalists sometimes join us in case we want to add to our sound. We mostly perform original songs each member composed, wishing to make people feel pleasant at any time, anywhere and any scene in everyday life by our music. We never stop creating; we compose, perform, and record music every day! We hope our music will reach as many audiences as possible.Cafe Music BMG Channel

This item by Culture Magazine from the Morning Coffee Newsfeed:
More competition generally means lower prices, and for now, cannabis consumers in Oregon should be happy with the price they see at the counter. The median price per gram of cannabis in Oregon dipped below $5 in December 2018. The long-term effects could be different.The Oregon Liquor Control Commission’s latest Recreational Marijuana Supply and Demand Legislative Report affirmed the growing oversupply problem in the state. According to that report, the state’s supply of cannabis could last 6.5 years. For now, the issue remains unsolved.
The gist of the story is that because it’s still illegal to transport weed across state lines, Oregon is stuck with an oversupply. Five bucks a gram!!!
Butttt, that’s about the same price you can buy weed for in SF when the clubs are having a sale, or on any street corner of Market Street in the civic center.
Wadddya think? Is weed too expensive, just right, or too cheap? Think it over while you sip your morning coffee, then leave a comment below?
I’ll try anything once, and this biodynamic turmeric cinnamon tea was delicious. Add that it was on sale, deal cinched!
At Manny’s, a leftist coffee shop in the Mission district of San Francisco.
What the hek is biodynamic? In a nutshell, it means sustainably farmed in a way that improves the environment, as opposed to traditional farming, which depletes the environment.
Ummmm, turmeric. tea. really? Yes, really. Turmeric is in most Indian curries, and it’s also in American style yellow mustard. In just the right amounts, it gives a kick and zing to the flavor. Health benefits include anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer, and anti-alzheimer’s effects. There’s cinnamon to balance the spices, and according to author Isabelle Allende it increases sexual desire!

From Palm Springs socialite Alfie Pettit:
OMG 2 funny. I’ve been wanting to see her for so long, thanks for sharing Alfie.
Philz is on the corner of 4th St. and Berry in what was once China Basin, a small muddy fishing hole and occasional small fishing boat dock, out by the SF Giants ballpark.
It’s now quite developed into multi-story office, and research facilities. The area is bustling with attractive young tech and biotech workers, and as usual there is a line out the door at Philz.
Fortunately, because of tech, I can order my coffee through the Philz app on my phone, it’ll be ready and waiting with my name on it! Cut in front of the line, grab and go, don’t even have to deal with a human being at the cash register.
I’m all the way out here because I have an appointment at one of these biotech research facilities. I’m going to be a guinea pig. They’re going to stick a big long needle in my arm and inject dye into my veins. Then I’ll be strapped by the head so that I can’t move into an MRI machine for 30 minutes. They’re testing some new kind of dye. And I’m getting paid! It’s a research study and my prize is a $40 Amazon gift certificate. Wish me luck!
