As a frequent business traveller this is a really handy discovery. Is there an app for this forum?
not sure but it sure would be handy
iPad, Randy giving away stuff again?
Unfortunately, he only gives away stuff from apple and stsrbucks. Good companies that make annoying products.
Starbucks is great, if you like $5 coffees. Regular coffee. Plain coffee.
Two main choices in "coffee" at starbucks- regular, which is burnt and bitter, or $5 liquid candy bars. Neither of those classifies as coffee in my book. Great company, treats their employees very well, understands the market, nice stores, incredibly good at marketing, but the product they sell is horrendous.
We need a better more down to earth coffee shop that can survive with needing to add 80g of sugary to make it taste ok. Oh that's right. And they have/had one in terminal 3 at JFK. It's called Dunkin' Donuts.
6:45 AM at ORD, as my wife and I were heading to the gate for an AA flight. We ran into a Starbucks to get a quick cuppa coffee before getting to the gate. Wife orders her usual double cream, me, a double-double. Terrible coffee's!!! I even tried adding extra sugar and cream to mine. Couldn't de-terribleize it! Haven't set foot in a Starbucks since then. Where's a Tim Hortons when you need them?
Isn't Tims starting to make inroads south of the border? There's definitely a place for them in the U.S. market.
The taste is off in NYC for Timmy's coffee. The coffee makers need to be rinsed out as they used to brew DD and that has tainted the urns!
The airlines have devalued our miles, and that has tainted the earns.
Recent news earlier this week was that Tim Hortons was planning to open 500 more stores in Canada, and about 300 more in the U.S. So get your Timmie's orders ready. That'll probably mean one on every corner in Canada.
We've had coffees from TIm's in Buffalo, NY, and at two in Connecticut a few years back, both of them on the way to Foxwoods, or was it Mohegan Sun. Same smooth taste as up here, and I guess they're working out well, as when we stopped in at the one on the way to Foxwoods, three tour buses from Long Island arrived soon after. We figured they were only there for a bathroom break, but changed our mind when we saw the drivers with a Timmies afterwards.
Of course my wife and I had to have another Timmies on our way from shopping home this afternoon.
My taint is ok.
As long as you don't suffer from tainting spells.
Or spainting tells either. Look that one up in your Funk and Wagnalls, and if you can find it please let me know what it translates to, and while you're doing so, I've got to get another cuppa coffee. Seems like my fingers are now doing all the walking, well before my brain is fully engaged or has even shifted into fifth gear.
Now where is Randy with that spell checker he's been looking into?
I've got spel chek built into firefox; don't know if it's an add on, I don't see it in the add-on's list. I used to use IESpell when I ran Internet Exploder.
I've got IE9 and I don't think their spellchecker is available for that browser, just IE10 and 11, although there's one in the MS Word and Office on my pc. Don't need it often as I rarely make misSTEAKS, but they're handy when needed to help those ppl. who need to differentiate between fare and fair; too and to; weather and whether; there and their; as I've pointed out to a very famous personage on MP in the thread on MP for suggestions to help improve the forum.
Although in my word examples above, a spellchecker may not be of use, as all the words are spelled correctly but just used in the wrong connotations. But of course, I could be mistooken too.
"isle seats"- that's a pet peeve of mine. (although they could be nice in Hawaii)
+1 Perhaps if seated in one of those throne seats on some aircraft, the user may actually think they're on a small "island" completely by themselves. However, sitting in an Aisle seat gives no such feeling, hence the spelling.
Maybe someone should put some sort of sticky on MP with a clear explanation of the differences between many of the words noted above, and probably a few others that we've missed. However getting anyone to read that sticky and admit to themselves that they've been using the wrong choice of wording all their lives may be difficult, as no one wants to find out after all that time, that the basic differences between some words are easily misunderstood. And what would the title for the sticky be?
"Words You Thought You Knew How To Use But Didn't" ? Nah, too long a title.
I'm not volunteering, as I'm still having trouble figuring out different useage for "a" and "an". (Not really but that sounds like a really good reason for me not to volunteer!) Besides, are we back in our elementary school class again?
Dunkin' Donuts at JFK, my experienced not so good, I don't like the coffee here, donut here the coating looks so good, taste was stale ..I had it in the afternoon about 3pm, a bit vierd to get such taste of a donut at this hour, it should taste fresh!
If you win a Starbucks card, can I have it?
Don't usually drink coffee while traveling ... my experience is that almost all coffee shop coffees are bitter and too strong. I would however, love to have an iPad mini!
