Thankfully, all the wildlife living in and around the reservoir have been trained to use the porta-potties!
Portland water officials say the risk to users is minimal. Still, they'll flush 38 million gallons of water after a man peed in the Mt. Tabor Reservoir system.

Notice the head butt from the second police/soldier to arrive.  That's because he was threatened by the scary unarmed man.  With empty hands and extended arms.  Standing still.

Thanks for your congratulation.  I hope you didn't struggle at great length as to which comment was more American, mine or my mother's.  (Of course since you added yours for a total of three, you may want to renew your evaluation.)

I enjoy coffee brewed in a variety of ways, most often as a morning espresso. (or two) I believe from research and experience that the process of making a really good cup can only be measured up to a point after which it becomes art.  I came across this video as a result of my never ending caffeine-fueled search for more insight to that artistry, and few would disagree that Italy has a well deserved reputation for loving coffee and elevating the art of brewing it.

With your response in mind I listened again to the video several times to see if it still evoked the same feelings in me.  Maybe I was just in a pissy mood that day and the video found my last unabraded nerve, right?

"...full of do's and don'ts."
A bit regimental, but perhaps a good start.

#1: “First and foremost, there is no ‘to go coffee’.”  “...are you crazy?” 

Um, OK.  I can deal with it.


#2: “...big, BIG no..” (regional, actually) “..cappuccino after breakfast time.”  “...at ten o’clock at night, right before you go to bed?”

Got it.  Breakfast ends at nine pm in Italy.  I didn't know that.


#3: “...espresso is 24/7, 365.”

Now you have my attention!


#4: “.. instead of dishwasher water, which is like American coffee…”

Unless made with Bialetti products http://www.bialetti.com/ purchased in the U.S., of course.


#5: Latte is the Italian word for milk.  If you order a latte at a coffee bar in Italy, you’ll get a glass of it.

#6 & 7: Chef likes booze in his coffee countered by the caffeine .


So yeah, I was disappointed that what I thought would be a insight into the preparation of coffee turned out to a disjointed list of Chef Fabio’s turn ons and bummers.  But aside from that, I see red flags whenever someone presents a matter of personal preference or taste as the final word on the subject without offering the reasoning behind their conclusion. Regardless of their title or claim to authority.  

How American is that?

Not breaking news, but makes me wonder if Donald Sterling was in attendance.

Like the author of this article, I also used Drop Box extensively.  I've since cancelled my account.  I believe an appropriate position for Condoleezza Rice would be cleaning bedpans at a Veterans Administration hospital until she retires on social security.

Dropbox is being dropped fast, in response to the news that Condoleezza Rice has joined the board over at Dropbox as a “privacy advisor”.

Must have been a typo.  Should read, "$600K stolen at Lakewood Church."  Then some amateurs stole it again...

👍👍 I don't know where to begin. With the basics I suppose. We asked for a room with a view of the Eiffel tower and were given 2103, a room on the corner of the building that not only faced the Eiffel to the north but the Seine on the east. Not a panoramic view but spectacular nonetheless. The layout was very efficient. As the largest person in our family I'm the first to feel claustrophobic but never did here. We had a small dining table for four, couch, and an easy chair in the kitchen/living area. Unlike other hotel rooms with narrow paths for navigation, we could all move freely about without taking turns. The kitchen has a sink, full sized coffee maker, water heater, four burner electric stove, mid sized refrigerator, and dish washing machine. Liquid dish soap and machine tablets were supplied, as were pots, pans, utensils, cups, plates and cutlery. Filters for the coffee maker I purchased from one of the many little "bodegas" within easy walking distance. They also have a nice selection of fresh fruits and vegetables as well as packaged foods. Many restaurants to choose from of that's your preference and a McDonalds and Starbucks if you're from the US and get homesick. (We are and didn't!) The front desk staff was friendly and helpful. A special thanks to Myriam who checked us in and gave us a choice room.

Stopped in twice for food. Early evening to bring food back to our room at Aspen Inn, and the next morning for breakfast sandwiches and coffee. (espresso). The service was good, the food delicious and we got to meet the owners' daughter who was visiting with her young children and husband. All told a pleasant experience.

Remember, most people are prompted to write a review based on bad experiences, not good. I have no idea where the drive thru description in the last review came from. This McD has never had a drive thru... Bottom line is... it's a McDonald's. You get McDonald's food and McDonald's service.
