    Thank you everyone, I will be using the mug daily, so sorry budney, I am a big coffee drinker. :browani:
    I don't consider it a victory Charlyee, it's fun to do & I have been enjoying doing it, wasn't even thinking of it as a contest. I found something else I like doing here. :D

    I got a couple more towers yesterday. That should put me at 50. Now I need to work on getting to 100. That will definitely take a long time now that I've gotten most of the towers I pass on a regular or rare basis. I'll have to keep my eyes peeled on my trips to San Antonio and FL this summer.

    Some of my pics from Saturday aren't great b/c of the cloudy skies in the morning. I was able to grab shots as we drove all over town for the marathon. My father-in-law finished the 13-mile 1/2 marathon in less than 2.5 hours. Not bad considering the Kenyan who won finished the full 26 miles in about 2.4 hours.

    Thanks much Fire14, it's been a lot of fun. I also discovered that there are a lot more towers around here than I thought. :)

    We should start a thread for pictures of winners with their prizes once ours come in.

    Does this mean I have to start drinking coffee?

    Having the new camera should be good motivation.

    Coffee is a poor excuse for espresso. I enjoy a nice white chocolate mocha or a shot every now and then. I'll leave most of the caffiene to charlyee.

    Actually, when I worked at a coffee shop in Red Bank, NJ, we called that "mocha americana". It's REALLY good, and if you make very strong coffee it's actually better than the standard mocha with espresso.

    Those were the days... I used to consume anywhere between 12 and 20 shots of espresso a day. To this day, eight years later, I can drink a quadruple espresso ristretto and be asleep 20 minutes later, though that ability is finally starting to wear off.

    Congratulations to Fire14 on the victory. You'll notice I don't have any photos up there -- I don't have a camera phone because it's banned at work, and the only place I ever drive is to work, where I can't bring my digital camera -- and I ain't about to leave the digital camera in the car in the parking structure.

    I agree, I do enjoy the occasional Coffee & Hot Chocolate mix, and making the coffee strong does make it better.

    I worked at an Espresso Royale Cafe for two days after the record store I worked at closed. I only worked slinging caffeine for two days because the coffee shop got sold to this :censored: two days after I started working there. I had a lot of bad luck with my jobs around that time. I'm drinking coffee out of a mug from that place right now, actually.
