Dear Coffee, You know how
much I love you. Your color, your taste, your mind-enhancing chemicals. It seems as though my day is not complete without you. How did I ever exist before you? Even just smelling your distinguished aromas from another room is enough to make me want you. Badly. Thank you for being so delicious. Although at the beginning of our relationship I admit you had to share room with both cream and sugar, I knew you'd understand. See how much I've come to love you that I now appreciate your naked nuances? Oh, coffee. Please don't tell your sister, Decaf, but I find her to be so inferior in every way, that I cannot stand to watch others consume her. I love you, coffee, and only you. Until tomorrow morning, my love. Forever Yours, Patricia via pmrogosich

You can use coffee to
fix furniture! Is that small crack, nick, or gouge all you can see each time you look at your dark wood dresser? Reach for the instant coffee. Mix 2-3 tablespoons with just enough water to make a thick paste; for wood with red tones, add a few drops of iodine.

Let the paste dry completely, then buff with furniture wax.
Coffee can be used to
trap cockroaches! Using coffee grounds to create a non-toxic, very effective roach trap: 1. Place fresh, used coffee grounds in open glass jar. 2. Add a few inches of warm water; mix. 3. Add a strip of duct or masking tape down the side of the jar, vertically (so the roach can climb into the jar). 4. Place jar overnight in roachs’ favorite hang out (kitchen, bathroom, etc.). Cockroaches love the smell of coffee grounds. They will climb into the jar and drown in the water
Coffee can be used in
your garden! Coffee grounds fit the standards set by gardeners for compost materials. The grounds, when mixed with soil, release nutrients that make the ground richer and more acidic. Plants that flourish in acidic soil will be healthier since they can get the needed nourishment from the ground. If you have a good supply of coffee grounds, just spread them evenly in your garden. Your plants will reward you by producing robust blooms.
Coffee can be used as
a Pet Repellant! As much as we may love cats or dogs, they can be real pests when they are always digging up your flowerbed! Used coffee grounds can be mixed with orange peels (or other citrus) and spread around flowerbeds for an inexpensive pet deterrent.
Make homemade tattoos using Coffee
( and Henna) I don’t know about you, but kids love tattoos ( and so do adults!) This is the perfect recipe that is safe for everyone. It washes off in about a week and yay it is totally pain free! 1 cup water 2 teaspoons of coffee (black tea works, too) 3 teaspoons of sifted henna powder 1 teaspoon of eucalyptus oil What you’ll do: 1: Boil the water. Add 2 teaspoons of coffee to boiling water. Let it rest for a few hours, then use a strainer to remove coffee grounds. Put henna powder and eucalyptus oil in another bowl. Don't mix it! 2: Add coffee to bowl of henna and oil. For best results, transfer the coffee in spoonfuls. Instead of mixing ingredients together, press liquid into powder and oil with spoon. 3: Let paint set for at least six hours, and no more than twelve. You want the henna dye to have the consistency of toothpaste. 4: Use toothpicks and go crazy with cool patterns. Try applying to your feet, hands and even stomach. Have fun!
"It is disgusting to notice
the increase in the quantity of coffee used by my subjects, and the amount of money that goes out of the country as a consequence. Everybody is using coffee; this must be prevented. His Majesty was brought up on beer, and so were both his ancestors and officers. Many battles have been fought and won by soldiers nourished on beer, and the King does not believe that coffee- drinking soldiers can be relied upon to endure hardships in case of another war." ~ Frederick the Great of Prussia (1777)
"A PROCLAMATION FOR THE SUPPRESSION
OF COFFEE HOUSES: Whereas it is most apparent that the multitude of Coffee Houses of late years set up and kept within this Kingdom...and the great resort of idle and disaffected persons to them, have produced very evil and dangerous effects; as well for that many tradesmen and others, do herein misspend much of their time, which might and probably would be employed in and about their Lawful Calling and Affairs; but also for that in such houses...divers, false, malitious, and scandalous reports are devised and spread abroad to the Defamation of His Majesty's Government, and to the disturbance of the Peace and Quiet of the Realm; his Majesty hath though it fit and necessary, that the said Coffee Houses be (for the Future) put down and suppressed..." ~ King Charles II of England, December 23, 1675 This rule was revoked on January 8, due to widespread citizen protest.
Coffee: Induces wit. Good only
if it comes through Havre. After a big dinner party it is taken standing up. Take it without sugar -- very swank: gives the impression you have lived in the East." ~ Gustave Flaubert (1821-1880)
"Coffee leads men to trifle
away their time, scald their chops, and spend their money, all for a little base, black, thick, nasty, bitter, stinking nauseous puddle water." ~ The Women's Petition Against Coffee (1674)

All I Need to Know
About Life I Learned from Drinking Coffee I am productive! I am productive! I am productive! Better latte than never. A day without coffee is like night...you sleep through it. We all have to do the daily grind. Espresso yourself. Automatic drip defines most people's personalities. Stand your grounds. If the spoon doesn't dissolve, it isn't coffee. I love the caffeine; it's the rich taste I could do without. Don't stop till you're shaking. Impatience is a virtue. Take two cups and call me in the middle of the night. Who needs sleep when you've got coffee? There's no rest for the caffeinated. Decaf is for sissies. Man cannot live by coffee alone - donuts are pretty essential too. There is no such thing as a free refill. It's okay to be full of beans sometimes.

Considering that I never drank
coffee until I was in my late teens, I always amaze myself by how much I now drink lol! I would like to thank a group of people who have inspired me to create this slideshare, because the fact is, I would never have considered doing this if it hadn't been for them! Adlandpro has been a home away from home for me for many years and I call it the "unfacebook" because while it has many of the social aspects of Facebook, it is so much more! It is a place where you can talk about many topics, but the one aspect that you will not find in many places is the ability to ask questions about marketing, business and internet marketing. Adlanpro is a social machine that inspires you to want to blog, to learn how to be social and to feel like you belong! I hope that you will visit me and the great people on Adlandpro today and we will have the coffee pot on and waiting for you!
