Coffea Arabica


Discovered In Ethiopia around
500 - 600 AD.

The worlds premium coffee and the
most widely grown species, accounting
for about 70 % of all coffee.

Thrives in sunny, tropical settings at
altitudes between 3,000 and 6500 feet.

Doesn't like extreme heat or cold.
If this is coffee,

bring me tea,

but if this is tea,

please bring me some coffee.

Abraham Lincoln


Anyway, onward to more positive
things we all hope.

My song for today:


Squirrel said...

I don;t know this song... sounds like Nelson Wilbury (GH) singing though. Nice. Man oh man what a day!

Cymbaline said...

Your song of the day gave me goosebumps-just like when I watched the inauguration!

Anonymous said...

Did Abe really say that? or did he sing it ?

tut-tut said...

A great day; a great new era. I feel better.

e said...

Loved your song of the day! It pumped me up! I hope we will finally move forward...

Megan said...

Hey thanks! Who's the song? Who's the singer?

I am watching the replay of today's ceremonies now since I just got home a bit ago. I can't believe the happiness of the crowds.

And did you hear? Not One Single Arrest. ;)

tony said...

Congratulations on a Fine Day For the U.S.A.

This is one of the types of coffee I'm trying to grow as an indoor plant... Now it will hardly get my sun, and I doubt it'll find my apartment to be a tropical setting. I wonder if it'll grow at all!

New Yorker wannabes said...

Have a wonderful day! Greetings from Greece

take care
peace and love

squirrel: Yes, amazing and hopefully those that follow will continue to bringing people together, rather than dividing them ; )
Yes, it's George Harrison, although I wasn't surprised you would know.

sleeping dragon: Thanks on all counts ; )

phd: Well, it's in so many quotation books, I hope so. Thought it was fitting since everyone was thinking AL yesterday ; )

t & t: It gives us hope, for the 1st time in too many years ; )

e: Let's hope ; )

megan: George Harrison and yes, that no one was arrested is a first in many years with crowds that large ; )
Amazing and a beautiful sight! ; )

tony: So many around the world watched, we can only all feel so good that it's a new day and new leaders in the usa ; )

Of course you knew it was GH ; )

dc: I hope so. I'll keep sending positive thoughts 4 it ; )

marianna: Thanks for stopping by and we all hope for some drastic chnages here and around the World ; )

Kurt said...

Drinking my coffee now as I listen.

R.L. Bourges said...

As we say over here: to a bonne continuation!

e said...

The music pumped me up! Thanks!

Private said...

I love it too! Thank you!


Mark said...

I love the Lincoln quote!

Reya Mellicker said...

Ring in the new and let freedom ring.

Oh yeah!

I raise my cup of espresso to you. Cheers!

Coffee Messiah said...

kurt: I hope it's from a press or something and not a mr. c ; (

rlb: Cheers and Thanks!

e: Thanks.....

rachete: Thanks for stopping by!

mark: I've often wondered in reading many quotes if they were really spoken or not. Nice to C U!

reya: Oh yeah and Thanks! ; )

Tess Kincaid said...

Yay! Bring in the NEW!

I've always had the hugest crush on Patrick McGoohan. Sadly, he passed away recently. I love seeing him on your sidebar when I visit.

need4trth said...

I liked especially the comment of Abraham Lincoln, 'if this is tea then bring me coffee'. I like my coffee to be strong, yet mellow. Out with the old and in with the new is very appropriate. Yet, also let America cleanse herself of the wrongs the Bush regime committed.

Megan said...

I'm so ashamed I didn't know it was George right away.


mouse (aka kimy) said...

great song... forgot all about it. geez I miss george (harrison that is - as far as w goes,as I said when I saw the copter fly off with him in it,"don't let the door hit you in the arse! and don't come back"

Coffee Messiah said...

willow: I was surprised to see he died the same week Andrew Wyeth did. His early work was very sophisticated, and the Prisoner is tops! ; )

n4t: Nothing will ever be perfect in any part of the World, sadly, but if accountability is appropriate for the little person, than those in power that decide to go against the Geneva Convention should be held accountable also, no matter who they are. Otherwise, another precedent is set, and that's wrong. Did I say I agree?
; )

megan: Don't be, I never thought he would have sang a song like this myself especially after the All Things Must Pass period.

kimy: So, you saw him really leave? Bet he was in a hurry ; (

Mary said...

Quite fitting tune indeed!

Squirrel said...

Having my coffee (first cup in three days as I had switched to tea for a little break) mmm tastes goooood.

When watching the inauguration (with a nice group of people) I felt like a door opened and we were able to walk through to a different world, a barrier had come down, and now EVERY baby born here, can got to kindergarden and say in class, "I might be president someday." or my goal is... we still have a long way to go but it's Ok to feel excited!

Squirrel said...

I meant "go to" instead of got to...ever notice how typos make us sound like GW? I got to get to go...

Coffee Messiah said...

mary: Hi ya, and Thanks! ; )

squirrel: Hey, Thanks and no big deal! Did you see the video of gw walking out into the ceremonies and all the booing and singing of Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye? I saw it this AM and didn't see/hear it on TV. They must've covered it up. His face said it all and I was surprised any of the anchors thought it was disrespectful, especially after all he's done to the country!

I had that Irish Coffee this evening ; )
