Yes You Can!

Written by Amy | 5 Comments

Coffee and espresso will be brewing on January 20th like never before. Yes you can – come and watch the inauguration of President Barak Obama from 8 am to 12:30 pm at Tazza D’Oro. Greg from Pittsburgh Custom Home Theater will be bringing in and hooking us up with one of his magnificent flat screen TVs (OMG, all in one day – a new President and a flat screen TV).

On a personal note, I am completely excited – besides love I don’t think there is a better feeling than hope!  Plus, I have a feeling I am going to be cured of my terrible cringing habit; oddly, it happened everytime I heard our current President speak! Hope to see you all on the 20th!

    I feel your pain. Looking forward to somebody who can finish real sentences with meaning!

    As important as Hope is, I think Trust is equally important. Especially in these turbulent times.

    BTW, I meant to say “excitement” in my first blog attempt at humor.
