You are more likely than ever before to get a deep, richly satisfying cup of coffee just about any places you go. Here’s a pro tip, though: if you want the very best coffee you can possibly imagine, go the Riverview Country Market and get a

by JoDee Samuelson

The crows wake me before the sun comes up. Are there more crows this year or are they just noisier? Might as well accept the fact that I won’t go back to sleep; and that’s a good thing, for today our friend Marjorie is coming to lunch.
