About Pepsi -

I would like to mention here that I sometimes do enjoy a Pepsi Cola and also that the Pepsi Cola company does make one of my most favorite drinks - Tropicana Orange Juice and all of it's many varieties - Grovestand - Original etc.

Working Together

Last weekend I went to a family gethering in a hotel up in Amsterdam, New York.

While my favorite - Coca Cola had a machine on the main floor serving both Coke and Dasani (Coke's filtered water product) the party goers were served Pepsi from the fountain - after a few Pepsi's I went to the machine and purchased a bottle of Coke which was so much more enjoyable than what was coming from the fountain.

Why should my enjoyment at such an affair be spoiled (or my enjoyment of whatever food I am eating be lessened) because of one company winning out over another or one company owning a territory?

I may put in a request to have legislation drawn up so that it becomes a legal mandate for individuals to be allowed to bring their own drink to any event or food establishement to assure that they are allowed to enjoy their meals wherever they go!!!!

Rite Aid has got it Right!

Yes - For quite some time I would walk into one of the local drug stores when I was in a certain area looking for a soda and then I would remember that for some reason this particular chain only carried Pepsi - and then I would look and look to see if things had changed - and then I stayed away for quite a while - and to my surpirse just the other day - they were displaying all sizes of Coca Cola - now there is a company that has learned to change at least for the tastes of one customer!

my fIrst Coke

One hot summer day my father drove up to the local Carvel stand and outside there was this big red machine that dispensed the old green bottles - that was the first and I can't imagine how life was without Coke before that -

at the coliseum

The other day while watching the "Stars on Ice" at the Nassau Coliseum in Long island - I could have really enjoyed a Coca Cola along with a hot dog or a bag of chips - instead of there being Coke there though - they had Pepsi all over the place along with this giant Pepsi Banner in the middle of the field hanging from the ceiling just staring down at me - reminding me throughout the entire show that they did not have my favorite drink on hand -

The New York City Subways

I was sitting in a subway car yesterday on my way from Queens to the City (Manhattan) and since the cars were stopped between stations I began to get thirsty and the idea came to me as to how nice it would be to have a person right there offering small cups or bottles of Coca Cola to each of the passengers to make their ride to and from the City or wherever they are going a little more pleasant.

There used to be (a long long time ago - almost so long ago I almost forgot) vending machines that dispensed soda to passengers waiting at the different subway stations.
