Okay, you can start throwing eggs, but I happen to like the burnt Starbucks roast. Then again, you have to know I went to college at night and drank coffee out a vending machine (for years).

Wonder why Tim Hortons is flogging their dark roast in all their commercials lately. And why Starbucks is flogging their "blonde" roast.
Maybe because people have different tastes.
All I know is my buddy and I picked up coffee at Tim's and twenty minutes later it tasted like it had been in a carafe for 24 hours. He slowed down and we dumped it out the window.

Baglo, perhaps you forgot an essential part of the Tim Horton's coffee order: "double double". With all that cream and sugar, it's hard to tell what the coffee tastes like.

That's what irked me, the first time I went into a Tim Horton's.
Apparently, they don't trust their customers to add sugar and cream according to preference.

Would never, ever throw eggs at you Donna, as everyone is entitled to their opinion AND their taste preferences. All I can say is I was in the army for many years and I would rather drink the sludge the mess sergeants imaginatively call coffee than that over-priced, burnt concoction that Charbucks markets. Incidentally, that stuff you got out of the vending machine wasn't coffee! As the adage states, you can dress up a pig and call it something else, but in the end, it is still a pig.

I drink my coffee black, with the only exception the odd cappuccino. I have never had Tim's Coffee that tasted stale, one of the things I like about it for a quick cup. No, it is nothing like the stuff I roast (says Jim, as he sips a freshly brewed Sumatran coffee roasted a few days ago), as I can alter the flavour profile to my liking, but it is hot and drinkable, and always fresh. There are also lots of small coffee shops that make way better coffee, I just have no clue where they are when on the road.

Hmmm...Probably an app for that.

Robert what provisions are you planning to use to change a tire on the trailer? I just recently purchased the Trailer Aid. Trust me, the jack Ford supplies with the truck SUCKS. I'll use it if necessary on my truck, but I'm not going to use it on the trailer. I hope this was $41 I spent on an item, but never use!

I've always wondered why you need to lube your hitch. I know it's probably obvious, but can someone explain? I've pulled trailers for years and never done this. What was I risking?

I have read both pros and cons for lubing the ball/coupler. Some say less wear, but I have never seen much wear on a ball anyway. Others say lube on ball more likely for coupler to pop off. But I doubt that would happen if the coupler is adjusted properly.
