The price for a cup of coffee

Wealth is not synonymous with sense and good taste
In six years I have paid out $294 on coffee pots.










America has become a throw away country. My
Mamma had one of those 2 globe silver Sunbeam electric
coffee pots, that's the only electric coffee pot we had
growing up. It  was still working years later.
I am fed up.
Mr. Coffee's $40 home drip coffee maker out-brewed some 
of the world's most expensive models —
 tied for best-ranked on a list of nearly 100 ...


 I am going to get THIS at Walmart for $19

Sick of these electric pots. My Mom had a
Sunbeam that lasted forever.


Honestly a step back in terms of waste.
Not a Tree hugger myself,  everyone is trying to reduce waste,
make more efficient packaging,   while 
Keurig ADDS unnecessary waste to
 the process of coffee making. Besides broke in 2 years.
 Again and again.

Then I thought I'd try
an expensive BUNN
 Same thing.













Insanity is doing the same thing over and over with bad results, Enough!!
This is the straw that broke the Camels back. The store said you are past
the warranty by six month's, SORRY
Call the Manufacturer, they say pay the shipping and send $40 and we will
look at it. I said, NO fix it. They said plus part. How Long?? no answer.











Cuisinart Dcc-1200 Coffee Maker,
Brew Central 12-Cup
$89.99

3 years six months and this leaked and I worked 2 hours cleaning the counter,
 floor and drawer that was open Never again. It cost 40 dollars to
send it back plus postage and parts. Back to stove top.




This is on sale for
$ 229.00
Breville.

I am not a
masochist person
Thank you.

In Memory of Our Hero's













Visit a Grave or go to a Service for Our Soldiers.
Say a prayer for their souls.


















My Husband was in Pearl Harbor, his Black Lab
used to tug at his sleeve, when the phone rang.
His dog lost 20 pound after his death. Dog's Mourn too.


























Spirit, that made those heroes dare
To die, and leave their children free,
Bid Time and Nature gently spare
The shaft we raise to them and thee.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson

















Their crosses cast shadows across the land.
 So much blood left in the sand













These heroes are dead.  They died for liberty 
 they died for us.  They are at rest.













The dead soldier's silence sings our national anthem. 
 ~Aaron Kilbourn












Then there is Greed cashing in on the lost
American soldiers.
 SHAME, SHAME, SHAME - Money -Money Money
