What if everyone heard what we said about them?

I was listening to a radio station not long ago and they posed a question about a new (fake) technology.  The new gadget would basically ‘listen’ to everything you said and when you started talking about a person, it would record the conversation and then send it to the person you were talking about.

Do you think that would cut down on the world’s gossip?  It would definitely cut down on local gossip!

No more, “Did you see what Sarah wore today? Ugh!  That was a horrible dress!”

People would for sure keep their mouth shut a little bit more.

I thought about this a lot.  How much do I say in a day about other people?  Would I be mortified if whatever I said were recorded and sent to that person?

Since this radio segment, I have tried to be more conscious of the things that seep out of my mouth.  If I wouldn’t want the person I’m talking about to hear what I’m saying, then it probably just shouldn’t be said.

However, I’m not perfect…. and I’m glad that this was a fake gadget that the radio hosts were talking about.

What about you?  How often do you gossip?  How often do you complain about people or make fun of people?  What if there were a device that would record what you said about a person and send it to them?

Homemade Coffee Frappuccino

Who loves Starbucks?

Yeah, me too… but my bank and my conscience won’t let me go there often…. so I make my own!

You want to make you own too, right?  Of course you do!

It’s so easy, you’re probably going to be mad at me for not telling you sooner!

All you do is make some espresso or coffee and stick in the fridge (or freezer if you want to drink it sooner).

When it has cooled  you may make your drink.

Fill you cup or blender 3/4 of the way with ice. 
170
Then, put about a cup or so of coffee in with the ice.
171
Add as much milk as you would like (I just add a ‘splash’ because I like my drink to actually taste like coffee.  Add more milk if you are a wimp like your drinks a little less strong).
172
Then, add about 3-6 teaspoons of sugar depending on your personal taste. (I never claimed this was a healthy recipe)

Blend it up in your blender.  I use the magic bullet.  It’s my best friend…. especially during the summer.
174
And viola!  You have a coffee frappuccino at home!  Stick a straw in it and you are ready to go!

To sum up…

Ingredients:
Espresso or coffee
Milk (I use almond or coconut.  Cow’s milk is fine or whatever is your milk of choice)
Sugar
Ice

Blend together and enjoy.

Now for the fun part…

Do you like Java Chip Frappuccino's?  Mocha Frapp?  Peppermint Mocha?

Use these variations:
  • Chocolate Chips – I highly recommend you grind up the chocolate chips by themselves before you add the ice.  Otherwise, the chips don’t chop up small enough to fit through the straw.
  • Any flavoring you might like… vanilla, hazelnut, peppermint, caramel, coconut, etc.
  • Chocolate syrup or cocoa powder

You can really make some fancy coffee drinks and you don’t have to break the bank or drink something with questionable ingredients!
