A Great Coffee

Imagine buying a new home. The first thing you want to do is wake up and have a great cup of coffee on that first morning. The question is, how do you make a great coffee at home? There are a few tricks to follow.

People go out and spend a lot of money on coffee these days thinking they can’t make that great coffee at home. There is one little trick that can turn any cup of coffee into a great cup of coffee. Use a little condensed milk in your coffee. It has to be sweetened condensed milk. About a half of teaspoon will do. That is the base. Now we can go from there.

Like chocolate coffee? Use a good brand of hot cocoa in your coffee. There are brands with different flavors to choose from. That is one option. Another is to buy a good brand of hot cocoa, add the sweetened condensed milk to your coffee, a teaspoon or so of hot cocoa mix, and then some artificial flavoring. Just a drop or two will do. I use mint, raspberry, and a mixture of caramel and coconut to make the coffee taste like a really great macaroon cookie. Take a look at the available flavors and let your imagination soar.

Now you have the basics to make a great cup of coffee. You don’t need to go out and spend a fortune, wait in line, or even leave the house. Now that is living.

Milwaukee and the Great Depression

It worked once during the great depression, why wouldn’t it work again? During the great depression Milwaukee developed a plan. In stead of setting up the soup kitchens and feeding people day to day the County of Milwaukee created programs that put people to work. Among these projects was the creation of America’s greatest public parks system, including Alfred Boerner’s botanical gardens.


Milwaukee embarked upon projects like Grant Park along the lake shore, County Stadium, the County Zoo and others.


At first the country looked at these projects with scorn and ridicule, calling them a waste of money. It did not take long for other cities, states and the federal government to take notice of the first city in the United States to emerge from deficit spending to a city collecting more taxes than what was necessary to fund these enormous projects during the great depression.

Our elected representatives need to study history and find out how our forefathers defeated the last depression. Why not copy a system proven by trial and error and finally success during the bleakest economic turn down in the history of this world?
