Multi-lingual

I'm going to have to learn to speak Italian, French, Spanish and Arabic in order to communicate with my new FB artist friends. Until then, I'll just communicate in pictures.

What a JOY it is to connect to so many talented artists! I'm in awe every new day.

Coffea sounds good
remembering those ethnic neighborhoods in Baltimore
living in no man's land between the black ghetto and little Itly
Somehow everything sounds better to me in Italian.

I got a little three cup coffee pot
and a monster 12 cup machine that I have never fired up
I don't think I could deal with that much caffeine one day.

I never did powder my nose when I was over the road,
just bubble gum, coffee, hill billy music, me and c.b.

Drank thirty six cups one 1500 mile day. Started to hallucinate, ya can't trust your eyeballs ya got to bail out fast. Pulled into a truckstop parked on the fuel island gave the attendent five bucks told him if I was not awake in 45 minutes to call the paramedics. fell on the steering wheel and slept fast. Got up and drove on in to san antone.


already oh two of two ten
one day scribbles into next.

ten four good buddy :wink:
We be travelers
Yes
rolling down this world wide boulevard

um, doreen, don't know about other countries
but in Israel we say cafe (caf-fay) not 'cave'
and usually we're specific

toor-key is turkish but not cooked. It requires a huge spoon of turkish ground coffee in a glass, with boiling water poured on, stirred and then there's a short wait for the grounds to settle.

espresso
and the family is what it is

Ness - is instant (short for nescafe - the generic brand name)

so, when you're travelling with your coffee dictionary, listen to the folks around you and see what they're ordering and drinking before you decide.

Meanwhile, enjoy your coffee.

Those FB games are an addiction. I'd drink coffee with you in any language Doreen.

Dame.. no.. no Facebook games... I'm not talking about games... I don't play any FB games... (well I've taken a few silly quizzes in the past)

What I was talking about is... I've added 100+ artists to my friends list on FB within the past month or so. It's very cool! All working artists from around the world!

It's so very cool! I'm building a network of visual artists ... real people... not games... I can see their galleries once they accept me as "friend" and it's very inspiring. Unfortunately, I don't understand the text they write because it's in various different languages. That's the problem.

Maybe I'll have a breakthrough and actually LEARN a new language! Now THAT would be a kick, huh?

Would love to have coffee with you, too!... Anytime...

And you, too, Judih... and you, too, Jack

Wouldn't that be nice if we all could get together for some java? ;)

We gather for coffee at the Lone Star Cafe in beautiful downtown Mule Shoe, Texas.

We have a Keurig and enjoy the choices it offers a lot! We now have freedom of choice without dealing with a full pot. K-cups are the 'pods' that give the choice... so many to choose from, it's quite amazing. We've settled to a few types we enjoy and Soo has her's and I have mine. Everyone that has seen and used it want one. Keurig even has individual-type machines for the single folks that don't require larger machines like ours.

Now, I'll send Keurig this little hype and hope they'll send me $2.00 for it. :lol:
