There'll be no roll up the rim in Kandahar. It was kyboshed due to logistical concerns.
Pacificsm is doctrine fostered by a delusional minority and by the media, which holds forth the proposition it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

Thanks, I was not sure if they would use the cups at KAF.

Here where I reside (just a short drive out of Winnipeg), we have our own "sure fire signs of spring", apart from Tim Horton's coffee. As an aside to this, my father-in-law claims that Starbucks coffee "is stronger than beer" (not certain how he'd know this since he doesn't drink alcohol! My family doctor says the Starbucks Grande has 550 mgs of caffeine verses 100 mgs in filtered coffee :-). At any rate, this convention exists between several of the neighbours on our block and in the surrounding area. Everyone hereabouts knows that the signs of spring include the following items: the robins return to our midst, the trees begin to bud, the snow recedes and ***** [not her real name :)] is outside yelling at her husband in the backyard. Perhaps it isn't terribly fair since I doubt she is able to help it but it generates a fair number of chuckles nevertheless. Anyway, let's enjoy our Canadian springs wherever we may be. I have no work today since the snowfall has shut down schools and the buses outside the city.

Gee, in our neck of the woods, the real first sign of spring is the road construction has started (following the great sinkhole and pothole obstacle course).

First sign of spring?  Dodging the little (or big) poop piles left by dogs who's owners are lazy.
Stop assuming I'm a man!

Yes he did, but today I returned the favour and brought him in his morning coffee.
Goes both ways, right?
Things seem to run way differently in this office than in any that I have ever been in before.
It is really laid back in here provided you are a good worker.
If you aren't then you are doing all the B***h jobs.

Hey!!

I finally won a coffee!! I didn't win a single thing last year...and for those of you who know me, you know I drink at least 5 XL blacks a day.

Somehow, I still feel ripped off!!  >:(

I Like that! This morning I did hit the drive thru on my way to work, seen the "number counter" that they use to show the winners at the drive thru window.......apparently there is 335 of them already....but alas, I still have not won.
