Personally, I'd rather have a double-shot of small batch bourbon on ice. Kirkland (Costco's brand) makes a great bourbon.

How about fresh ripe apricots, picked off of the tree?
How about fresh ripe mandarin oranges, picked off of the tree?

Most of the stuff you get at stores has been picked too early so that they would not bruise on the way to the store and for increased shelf life. Picking too early harms the taste.

Sometimes much pleasure can be found in the simple things in life.. I think this is sometimes due to sounds/tastes triggering good memories from when we were young.

Money is credibility. The more you have, the better.

"Dear God, you made many, many poor people.
I realize, of course, that it's no shame to be poor.
But it's no great honor either!
So, what would have been so terrible if I had a small fortune?"
If I were a rich man,
Yubby dibby dibby dibby dibby dibby dibby dum.
All day long I'd biddy biddy bum.
If I were a wealthy man.
I wouldn't have to work hard.
Ya ha deedle deedle, bubba bubba deedle deedle dum.
If I were a biddy biddy rich,
Idle-diddle-daidle-daidle man.
I'd build a big tall house with rooms by the dozen,
Right in the middle of the town.
A fine tin roof with real wooden floors below.
There would be one long staircase just going up,
And one even longer coming down,
And one more leading nowhere, just for show.
I'd fill my yard with chicks and turkeys and geese and ducks
For the town to see and hear.
(Insert)Squawking just as noisily as they can. (End Insert)
With each loud "cheep" "swaqwk" "honk" "quack"
Would land like a trumpet on the ear,
As if to say "Here lives a wealthy man."

I'd see my wife, my Golde, looking like a rich man's wife
With a proper double-chin.
Supervising meals to her heart's delight.
I see her putting on airs and strutting like a peacock.
Oy, what a happy mood she's in.
Screaming at the servants, day and night.
The most important men in town would come to fawn on me!
They would ask me to advise them,
Like a Solomon the Wise.
"If you please, Reb Tevye..."
"Pardon me, Reb Tevye..."
Posing problems that would cross a rabbi's eyes!
And it won't make one bit of difference if i answer right or wrong.
When you're rich, they think you really know!
If I were rich, I'd have the time that I lack
To sit in the synagogue and pray.
And maybe have a seat by the Eastern wall.
And I'd discuss the holy books with the learned men, several hours every day.
That would be the sweetest thing of all.
If I were a rich man,
Yubby dibby dibby dibby dibby dibby dibby dum.
All day long I'd biddy biddy bum.
If I were a wealthy man.
I wouldn't have to work hard.
Idle-diddle-daidle-daidle man.
Lord who made the lion and the lamb,
You decreed I should be what I am.
Would it spoil some vast eternal plan?
If I were a wealthy man.

Throw in one blood orange to give your OJ a pretty deep red color.

Get a Sodastream and you can carbonate it.

I have a plum tree and it makes great fruit but half the time winter is too warm for them to form so it is like a lottery.

I was thinking of a despacito parody

Mas dinero
Dinero, dinero, yo te quiero mucho
Of course you're better when you have more dinero

Chili. I used to ski a lot when I was young and chili was filling, warm and pretty cheap (especially if you got a *lot* of saltines). It still makes me happy. Also, and probably nobody here has had one, but cornish pasties (these are meat pies, not adhesive items . . . ). We used to visit family in the upper peninsula of Michigan during the summer and pasties were always made. Although not as good as homemade, they send them frozen anywhere in the US from www.pasty.com :)

Pasty’s are overrated. Pot pies are better cause it’s the same damn thing but with a flaky crust.

Absolutely untrue. Pasties have no sauce - they were intended to be wrapped in newspaper and warmed over a fire on the miners’ shovels. They are delicious - with a perfectly flaky crust (when made correctly) especially with ketchup. I would make one today but they have a staggering number of calories.
