Coffee Adventures

Starbuck’s Double Shot Vanilla Espresso & Red Hair

Today’s coffee adventure was a lot exciting, and a little on the rock star side. I decided to go for it, and dye my hair red, like Rock Star red. It was an awesome choice and I loved it! So edgy, cute, sexy, and rockerish. Anyhow, my coffee adventure was more of a “straight espresso” kind of adventure. I enjoyed Starbuck’s Double Espresso with Vanilla!

Honduras El Paraiso Bourbon

Today’s coffee pick is an unique one I just purchased from Amazon.com. I can’t wait until it gets here! It’s The America’s Honduras El Paraiso Bourbon.

Details:

  • ARABICA VARIETAL: Typica & Bourbon
  • AROMA: Sweet, nutty and caramel-like with hints of cocoa
  • BRIGHTNESS: Light and subdued, this coffee is rich and body driven (vs. bright acidity)
  • FLAVOR: Rich roasted nut character with toffee, caramel-like syrupy sweetness
  • BODY & FINISH: Creamy and herbal with distinctive cinnamon tones

In Honduras, You Can Call the Cops if Your Dad Is Smoking



Honduras is contemplating implementing new anti-smoking legislation that allows family members to call the police to their home if members of the household are smoking. The Washington Times reports that the legislation is being put forward because of the affects of smoking on the Honduran health-care system.

For every dollar that the tobacco industry makes in Honduras, the state spends $10 to fight smoking-related diseases, according to the Health Department.

The expense of health-care for smokers force Honduras to take action now in order to save millions, but is the legislation tenable in a country where 30 percent of the population smokes and where crime is rampant?

“Police won’t be able to enforce it because they can barely keep up with the crime wave that has been overwhelming us to be able to go after those who are smoking at home,” said Jose Martinez, a 38-year-old computer engineer who has smoked for 20 years.

The anti-smoking law makes Honduras the 29th member state of WHOto adopt such a measure, but is made more confusing by allowing family members to call in home. In addition to measures that can now be taken at home, smoking is banned in public places and there is now a ban on advertising tobacco products.

 

Wow, to me that’s a little too much. This is an article from  http://www.good.is/post/in-honduras-you-can-call-the-cops-if-your-dad-is-smoking1/. The lovely author is Ann Marie Gardner
