I bought one of those single shot coffee makers so I could offer guests at my office some fresh brewed. I don't drink much coffe, but I will occasionally sip some bailey's and de-caf on cold winter nights.

Lately however, I've been putting an envelope of swiss miss cocoa powder in the cup and putting it under my single-shot. Makes a pretty good and pretty cheap moca.

De-caf only though. I drink a two-liter of Mountain dew every two days, but regular coffe gives me the shakes.

I used to never be able to drink coffee. Loved the smell of it, but hated the taste. Now, I love both.

That's because pop (I'm from Michigan, we say pop) does not have nearly as much caffine as legend holds.

I start my day with about half a cup of cuban coffee ( a variation of italian espresso, but stronger) and then go through about 10 cups of regular cava throughout the day, with boosters of the strong stuff at lunch and dinner time.

WV calls it pop also. I've noticed what you mean. When we travel, I've noticed most other folks call it soda.

Used to be the sack or bag a hobo carried on the end of a stick with his belongings, especially food. Often made from a hankerchief or scarf.

Guys out West used to use that term for money, like a stake.

I was referring to a bag. A lot of folks that I run into outside WV have no clue what a poke is.

I also know exactly what DorGunR is talking about. Poke Weed has many uses, but it has to be boiled or it's poisonous. It can also be used for skin treatment.

Here's a link with some of the uses:

Correction:I guess it's just the berries that are poisonous. I was always told that the leaves were, but what I've surfed so far says just the berries.

Do you know DorGunR?
