Fall flavors

I bought pumpkin bagels this week. They are OK, but somehow the flavor of pumpkin and the texture of a bagel just don't seem right. Is this being too judgemental?

My new coffee thermos mug from Panera's is leaking . . . something. But there's nothing in it. I've sent the promo company a note. I think I'll take it back. It was made in China, and I violated my own rule about not putting things made in China in my mouth or on my body.

Teachers unions give more money to political campaigns than all the other unions combined, but very little to Republicans--$56 million to Democrats and $4 million to Republicans. But only 45% of the teachers are Democrats. So I guess we know why we've got crappy schools in cities run by Democrats. . . which is just about all the big ones. But the recorded dollar number is just the tip of the iceburg.

Just bought pumpkin donuts and pumpkin coffee today. Why is pumpkin so much better in the fall?? That's too bad about the teachers unions but not surprising.
