woody was right

Ok, just like Woody Allen said in an old movie...everything we thought was good for us is bad and vice versa. Now they are saying arthritis meds don't work, low fat isn't necessarily a good thing, coffee is good...chocolate too. What are we supposed to believe? But I am really happy to find out about the chocolate.

everything in moderation. otherwise we'd never have any fun at all and die of boredom.

Oops! Christine beat me to it. I was going to say the same thing. I wish I could always practice what I preach, though. I swear there are some foods created expressly by the devil to tempt us out of moderation and into excessive consumption!

Mmmmm, chocolate.

Ah Susan, I join you in arriving rather belatedly to the joys of coffee (in the context of the grand spectrum of life lived to date). Yes, there are so many flavors, but you indeed found THE ONE...and on your first attempt, no less. Hazelnut truly is the best. Forget bicycling the park. Just go hang out at Starbucks (or Peet's out West). You never know who you'll chance to meet.

Susan - Coffee is the nectar of the gods.....

I flew up to NYC for a friend's birthday party this past weekend. I was in the city and checked into the hotel before 8:30 am in morning. After check-in at the hotel, I immediately stopped at Starbucks, picked up a cup of coffee and up the two blocks to the park. There were lots of single folks out-and-about in the park. You get to drink your coffee, get exercise, become fit and interact with the world.

I love Starbucks and their coffee; however, every Starbucks I went into the city (and I went into several for the weekend) was crowded and not conducive for meeting folks....not that I was looking.

Anyway, the B-party was at small place called Ludos. Chef Eiant Admony greeted guests with a glass of Sangria. Great food! It is in the East Village – very chic and fun place. I recommend it! They have a website that you can take a virtual tour.

Hang-in there.....
