    Iaranis, I’m not speaking to you directly. Instead, I want to expand on your eloquent and pleasant message.

    It amazes me how quickly some are willing to accept age related generalizations and reject generalizations based on other criteria like race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, etc. I’ve been around long enough to understand that all of it is a weird control mechanism. I’ve known people nearing the end of their days that spent a lifetime advocating for all the right things. That should be enough for folks to understand that we are all immature, flawed, and prone to bias; while capable of fostering positive change.

    Don’t marginalize anyone, young or old because of their age. We all get the same short life to try to live to its fullest.






  • Sweet, thanks!

    Yes, I seek out the most ethical option with whatever I consume. Being fair to people and kind to the environment should always come before convenience and profit. Especially for anything considered a luxury like coffee or chocolate. It would be nice if it was just on the shelf at the store since I’m already there, but it usually doesn’t work that way.

    There might be a desire from those that were looking for the top response to let it ride for visibility. I wish most things were as practically packaged as flour.

    Edit: Can we do coffee next? I drink a lot of the stuff, and unless I roast my own, there is absolutely no environmentally friendly option. I tried roasting my own. I set off the smoke detector, upset the dogs, and made my house smell bad.
