Why are people leaving their coffee unfinished?  Is it that bad?  I often think this when I walk past Costa and see all the half drunk cups on the empty tables.  Not a good advert.

Because their cups are too wide and the coffee goes cold too quickly. Ghrrrr!

So it's not because it tastes like Sh*t as well as looking like it?

So do you think the rapid cooling cups are a deliberate ploy so they can get a faster turnover of customers through a limited number of seats?  Not that I want you to think I'm a cynic.

Doesn't work well with me because I drink it fast and want a refill.

I'm playing the 1812 Overture and loving it.  All fifteen minutes of it, not just the thunderous finale.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VbxgYlcNxE8

Just regretting that I don't have a real cannon - even a small one -  in the back garden to fire off at the finale.  (That would freak out the curtain twitcher.)

=====

"Tchaikovsky, cannons are not instruments."
"Yes they are, and I'm going to use 21 of them."
"Tchaikovsky, no."
"Tchaikovsky, YES."

Ah, the blithe confidence of the creative soul ;-)

My kids loved that record. They threw themselves around as the "canons" blasted.

They would ask me if I could play the Boom Record for them.
Joey was so little he couldn't even say record and called it the Boom Reccy.


Ah, good times.
