The poll results say "Tim Hortons, nuff said, ... worth the drive to Canada." Tim Hortons invaded the US at least 8 years ago, no need to cross the border.

..As of July 2005, there are over 260 Tim Hortons locations in the United States. These are situated in Michigan, Ohio, New York, West Virginia, Kentucky, Maine, Rhode Island, Connecticut, Massachusetts and Pennsylvania. Future expansion and opportunities will continue in these markets for the next several years....

How long has Wendys owned Tim Hortons?

If you watch 'The History Of NASA' backwards, it's about a space agency that has no manned spaceflight capability, then does low-orbit flights, then lands on the Moon.

Uhmm.. I didn't get the comic. Are the devils related to the coffee, or the coffee is just a conversation topic?

And Tim Horton's assorted bakeries are wicked indeed. I've been in Canada some months ago...

ps: I haven't been here for long because I lost my password file. Well actually I didn't lose it, but I was too lazy to turn on the old computer in order to find it.

Sh*t, man...I'm glad I'm having tea this morning. I'll just have to hope that Typhoo won't skewer me. [Razz]

I concede that I don't quite get the devil reference. It's still good for a chuckle...but maybe that's just a bit of schadenfreud showing. [Wink]

I was in Montreal this weekend, and I ran into a friend from NY who had driven up as well. She was telling me about "these wonderful doughnuts we bought, but I think we left the box in the hotel room." I said "Tim Hortons?", and she said "Yeah, that's the place. How did you know?".

Unlike the comic, I can be a real problem if I can't find my coffee ready on my desk in the morning. Everybody knows the rule, no one wants anything from me until I finish my first mug.

That tiny caffeine molecule is a real miracle. [Big Grin]

Give me coffee and no one gets hurt..

I heard it from a good source this weeekend that the US Tim Hortons uses a *different* recipe for their coffee than the Canadian Tims, one that is more like Dunk'n Donuts... tailored more to what Americans think coffee should taste like. [Eek!]

What are they thinking??? [crazy]

Sounds about right, Dunkin Donuts coffee went downhill about 7 years ago, they used to sell nice dark oily beans. Last time I bought coffee beans from Dunkin Donuts they looked like pinto beans. I have been getting some beans at Sams club that are from a local roaster made in small batches. It's a nice dark bean and is about$14.50 for 3 lbs. Krispy Kreme actually sells nice dark roast beans too, but they are about $8.50 lb.

Not much beats drinking Blue Mountain coffee home-roasted by the growers while watching the fog roll over the hillside toward the top of the Blue Mountains.

/me wants to go back to Jamaica (and Puerto Rico).

I take my caffeine mostly in the form of tea and soda. When I do drink coffee, I need to drown it in milk, so it's either cafe au laits or lattes with extra milk for me.

Could be a cunning plan to recycle their old dishwater.
