You know you're not in California when.....

  • when there's a Bible Outlet store at the mall.
  • when there's a Black & Decker store next door to the Bible store.
  • when there's more rows of Bibles, Bible reference books, christian reference books in the local bookstore than computer books.
  • when the fire alarm goes off at the hotel and everyone in the lobby is watching the Republican Convention.

So, my day and evening was exciting. I had a tour of S & D Coffee's plant. That was pretty cool. There is a guy there that can taste a cup of coffee and tell you what country the bean is from, what season it was grown in and what the weather was in the season. Pretty damn cool. The people at S&D Coffee http://www.sndcoffee.com/ are so nice its just a darn pleasure working there. Did you know that in the little "cherry", the red thing on the coffee plant I thought was a bean, actually holds 2 little green beans? Anyways, it was fun.

Back to the remodel -- the window isn't in yet, the electrian is MIA, and the plumber came back to fix all the little things his screw up drunk apprentice who stole my beer screwed up. Welcome to the land of the free. Ya think Dawn is frustrated? oh, and guess what, our contractor just called, there is a hairline leak in the tub. The tub is completely secured into its position and NOW they test it. Wouldn't you test it before you pored 3 tubes of liquid nails or whatever the hell they put there to secure it? This is total bullshit.
