Starbucks Baby

This is the biggest, most expensive Starbucks drink you can order:
If you have a Starbucks "Gold" card, every 12th drink is on the house. Well, since they don't stipulate how big or fancy that free drink can be, every year, someone pushes the limit to create the biggest, most expensive drink they can think of. Here's this year's entry:
On Saturday, a customer the blog Consumerist identified only as “Andrew” allegedly ordered a massive, 60-espresso-shot 128-ounce Frappuccino, which would have cost an astounding $54.75.
Andrew's drink also included a mocha drizzle, hazelnut drizzle, caramel drizzle, and protein powder.
Andrew told Consumerist: "I gotta say, it was delicious."
He finished off an impressive third of it and saved the rest for later.

Happiness does not dwell high; it is not in the condo above the city or the shimmering office removed from the squalor; it will not be in the next digit, the extra zero, the new mark; it is not grasped somewhere in the clouds when emotions soar; it is not felt when the victor places a foot on the skull of the vanquished; it is not on the pin of diamonds or behind the pile of trinkets; it does not fall from the unfolded sail of adventure or rise from the relieving sigh of comfort; it is not near or far, soon or later; it cannot be pierced with lofty aims or roused by a low and desperate prayer; it is not lifted by a flirty love, awakened by approval, or tempted or ruined by a sudden evil; it is not ensured by giving or getting, forgiving or following; no, no, you see, it rises and rings and surges and sings only for those who stroll faithfully upon that glorious and steady ground of GRATITUDE.

Be A Rainbow in Someone Else's Cloud - Maya Angelou - 

"A luminous light remains where a beautiful soul has passed." 
- Antoine Boveua

“My mission in life is not merely to survive,
but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, 
some compassion, some humor, and some style” ~ Maya Angelou 

"You are the sum total of everything you've ever seen, heard, eaten, smelled, been told, forgot - it's all there. Everything influences each of us, and because of that I try to make sure that my experiences are positive."

Statement from Dr. Maya Angelou’s Family:
Dr. Maya Angelou passed quietly in her home before 8:00 a.m. EST. Her family is extremely grateful that her ascension was not belabored by a loss of acuity or comprehension. She lived a life as a teacher, activist, artist and human being. She was a warrior for equality, tolerance and peace. The family is extremely appreciative of the time we had with her and we know that she is looking down upon us with love.
Guy B. Johnson

Maya Angelou's final tweet 3 days ago.

Listen to yourself and in that quietude you might hear the voice of God.

"I've been blessed to have Maya Angelou as my mentor, mother/sister and friend since my 20s. She was there for me always, guiding me through some of the most important years of my life. The world knows her as a poet, but at the heart of her, she was a teacher. 'When you learn, teach. When you get, give' is one of my best lessons from her.

"She won three Grammys, spoke six languages and was the second poet in history to recite a poem at a presidential inauguration. But what stands out to me most about Maya Angelou is not what she has done or written or spoken; it's how she lived her life. She moved through the world with unshakable calm, confidence and a fierce grace. I loved her, and I know she loved me. I will profoundly miss her. She will always be the rainbow in my clouds."

— Statement from Oprah Winfrey

God puts rainbows in the clouds so that each of us- in the dreariest and most dreaded moments can see a possibility of hope. Try to be a rainbow in someone's cloud. ~Maya Angelou, Letter to My Daughter 

From my Son:

Denver is officially my new favorite city in 'Murica! Thanks for showing us around your splendid city, Brendan O'Rourke! Now off to Rocky Mountain National Park and Boulder Flatirons

Great song♫

"Try with a new method.
It costs nothing and yet is effective: smiles.
This method starts from the human heart, it is the smile that comes from an inner peace, the joy of a good heart. 
This smile makes beautiful every man. "
