Hello and welcome! I’ll get you a mug of a very strong French Roast, though we have tea, Hot Cocoa and other warm, nonalcoholic beverages available. From the picture you may realize I’m on Cape Cod this fine Saturday morning. Thinking of pictures, Prior from Prior House blog made me a great virtual coffee cup for my Cape Cod excursions.
Since this is a travel mug I’ll use it for those Saturdays I’m traveling between NH and the Cape, both going and coming.
This makes three photos for Coffee on Cape Cod. The third is the Beatles Mug collection:
Beatles and Coffee
This was a very busy week. I don’t remember everything, but here are a few highlights. I mentioned a few weeks ago that I planned on starting to do yoga. On Tuesday I started a beginner’s class.
On Wednesday I went into Boston for a special visit. This is what I told you about last week. OK, I can’t put it off any longer. I saw Neil de Grasse Tyson speak. Better yet, I had backstage passes to actually meet Dr. Tyson. Here is an almost selfie – my phone but somebody else snapped the picture.
Just need to say, Dr. Tyson was funny, witty and personable throughout his two hour dialog and one hour Q&A session, even answering hecklers in an engaging manner. If science needs a face and voice, and unfortunately it does, there are few that can provide it as well as he does.
Oh, since I’m posting pictures this weekend I need to put this up again. Everyone who follows me on multiple social media has to be totally sick of this by now, but I think it’s the best selfie I’ve ever taken.
Thursday I drove down to the Cape circling Boston on 128 during snow, sleet, ice and junk during Rush Hour. Oh joy. But I got here in one piece and, after working Friday, I can relax. Oh joy!!
On the blogging front, January has continued to be a remarkable month for me as I already have more views than all but three other months and we’re only half way through.
I also decided to join the 1000 Voices Speak for Compassion. The hope is that on February 20 at least 1000 people will blog, tweet, etc about compassion. Hopefully our voices will help counterbalance all of those who blog about hate, extremism and intolerance. Sign up on the Facebook page.
I hope you all had a great week and that next week is even better! Thanks for dropping by and sharing a cup of coffee, or the hot beverage you chose, with me!
Part time Monster, which originated the “If We Were Having Coffee” posts, is now hosting a weekly Weekend Coffee Share. Go over there and join other bloggers for a cup of coffee!
