More Coffee info… 🍜     Have a “Cup of Joe”?  

   Josephus Daniels 41st Secretary to the Navy in 1914

   banned alcohol on Navy ships.  This led to creation

   of the negative slang term a “Cup of Joseph Daniels”

           later shortened to let’s have a  Cup of Joe.

Secret to a  GOOD  Chili?    mmmmm!

                  ALWAYS make it the day before serving. 

    Gives time for flavors to meld together and deepen.

Lost Zuma Secret Satellite?  🚀          Still  Lost!

  Rumor’s are Alien’s captured it to prevent them from

  being exposed?    Remember  if you suspect someone

  is an Space Alien, offer them a Strawberry Milk Shake.

  Won’t drink it for fear of dying.   “Rita’s”  are favored. 

        Alumni do your patriotic duty…   carefully observe

                 if any of the CREW are drinking them?  😁
