    Yes! Yes! Need to see Corgi's video!!!:happy dance:

    Here's a bedtime story:

    Would you pay $1,100 for a kilogram of specialty coffee beans? What if they were pooped out by an elephant?
    It may sound like the stuff of satire, but that's exactly what's on the menu at four Maldives resorts and one in Thailand. The Anantara Hotels, Resorts and Spas properties offer Black Ivory Coffee, a specialty brew made with beans digested and "naturally refined" by Thai elephants.
    According to a release, the off-kilter process engenders the beans with a special quality:
    Research indicates that during digestion, the enzymes of the elephant break down coffee protein. Since protein is one of the main factors responsible for bitterness in coffee, less protein means almost no bitterness.
    Only about 50 kilograms of the stuff are available for purchase, and each one will cost the adventurous drinker $1,100 per kilogram. figures that amounts to about $50 a cup. For comparison sake, 16 oz. Of Starbuck's House Blend retails for only $11.95 on its web site.
    Of course, the notion of roasting pooped-out beans isn't a new one. In 2010, word spread about what was then thought to be the most expensive coffee in the world: kopi luwak, a Southeast Asian brew made from coffee berries passed through the digestive tract of an Asian palm civet.
    At the time, kopi luwak went for $100-600 a pound -- cheap compared to Black Ivory Coffee.

    Oh no! The video must be destroyed..and soon! The only thing that kept me from dying of embarrassment was the thought that I didn't know any of those people there. Then I found out hubby videoed the whole thing.

    Know the song "Apple bottom jeans"?


    That was the song that was playing

    Enough said.

    I think we need some of that beaver butt natural vanilla flavoring to go along with the naturally refined elephant-assisted coffee! You first.

    There is no way I can allow the video to hit the world wide web. Tell you day, when we all meet up in person, I will share it then. :)

    To make up for it, I will share something else embarassing that happened tonight at the rodeo.

    Hubby and I have been going there for 3 years. It is held every month May-Sept.

    There is a cowboy that walks around the outside of the arena. He is always in a nice long sleeved button down shirt, dark jeans, boots, and a nice light colored hat. Until the sun goes down, he wears sunglasses. It is his job to keep people off the fence.

    He has been the topic of conversation every time. Usually because when I take someone else with us, they comment on how hot they think he is. One of my girlfriends has a huge crush on him from afar. When she can't go, she always asks me if he was there..and he always is.

    So tonight, hubby and I are scanning the stands, trying to find a place to sit and Mr. Cowboy walks up to us and says "You are blocking the way" and I immediately apologize and move to the side.

    He starts laughing and says "You don't know who I am, do you?"

    And I think " yeah, you are the cowboy that Lisa has a crush on and someone who is always a topic of convo with my friends"

    But I just shake my head no.

    And he says....

    (Wait for it...wait for it)

    He says "I am your farrier!"


    He is! He is my farrier and has been for over a year. I see him every 6 weeks like clockwork.

    I am always one of his last appointments of the day. He wears old jeans, tee shirts, no hat.

    My farrier is Mr. Hot Rodeo Guy and I had no idea!!!

    I said I was so sorry that I didn't recognize him and then he said it was probably because when I see him at the farm, he is always bent over.

    I introduced him to hubby who is laughing so hard he can hardly stand up because he knows how many of my friends have drooled over him and here he is my farrier. I am very lucky hubby is not a jealous man because now he knows my farrier can be kinda hot when he cleans up.

    My mind is totally blown.

    Corgi, and with that I take your woman card. Heck a hot guy when he is dirty, is better, no?

    Geez, you are just mistaken. :)

    Sadly I looked up my baseball hottie the other day, the guy I blow kisses to and freak when he blows one back.... erm he's 23. My oldest former kid is 23.

    I am only 37, but still, this kid is 14 years younger than me. That makes me feel bad for a bit, but I will blow him a kiss at the next game too. Hell he's legal, and I am married so he's safe, for now.

    He walked past us at the last games, and the kids all yelled 'Derrick' as they know I'd like to meet him, or kiss him, or something. He didn't look back, but isn't he about 6'4'' and just athletic looking. Tall, slim, built. Just as hunk of flesh.

    Brad calls me a dirty old lady. LOL. He wishes.
