With gas prices at $4 a gallon who has $7 to spend on a cup of coffee?

I concur! I brew my own delicious F*lg*rs coffee at home, stir in some caramel as desired, top with whipped cream and a sprinkling of cinnamon. Add Starbucks powdered chocolate and vanilla if I want some (hey! they sold it to me!), and voila! Superb coffee and a whole pot of it! I love my coffee.

Well regardless of your coffee choices, that means more jobless people. When is that okay to joke about? By the way I know quite a few people that work there and they are trying to put themselves through college.

Such are the coffee filters of life, I suppose. Every once in awhile, you just have to change one.

I thought it was odd that there are four Starbucks all along Hardy/Hwy 98 from Hwy 49 to Oak Grove. You have the one that's closing, the on across from Applebees, the one in Target, and the one in the library on the campus of Southern Miss. Too much of a good thing? It is getting harder for businesses like this to keep profits at the levels attained in the past. People aren't spending as much on things other than gas, because that money has to go towards the rising gas prices. It's definitely been crazy the last few years.
