I'm a slow starter in the morning. I get up around 5:15 just so I can spend about 45 minutes with coffee and the news of the world. I make my coffee from freshly ground beans by the cup.

neighborhood- a full 5 miles under the posted speed limit. The community
takes speeding through the neighborhood seriously. Testing the limits is

merge into traffic I grip my warm cup of coffee. In no time at all I go
