Monday Morning Coffee Corner

Legend has it that coffee was "discovered" by a goatherd named Kaldi, or, rather, by his goats. One day, when the goats did not come in response to his piped call, Kaldi found them romping in a frenzy, nibbling the berries and leaves of a bush that he did not recognize. The next day, satisfied that the goats hadn't poisoned themselves - they ran directly to the same bush and began eating and dancing again - he tried chewing on the strange leaves and berries himself. Soon he was dancing, too.

Twigas sleep for no more than 5 to 30 minutes in 24 hours.

Cup of Joe

So I was telling Joe about my new blog pages yesterday and he mentioned that he should start a blog also. I agreed and named some of the things that he might like to blog about. "You can write about everything you love," I told him. When I said that I would have to be included, he said that he guessed he could have a section called "obligatory love". How's that for romantic.
