I don't know...
I am in Portland today, and it is like I jumped into a shitty time capsule programmed for winter. The weather today is barely spring in Portland. It is rainy and barely 50 and I got to bust out my overcoat which may never get used again except for trips to places that have weather. It is fun in a way, especially because I get to go home to 70 degrees and sunny. Suckers.
You may have a beautiful city full of culture and interesting people and an urban development plan that is semi-rational and sustainable, and green trees and sufficient water to supply your needs, but we've got sunshine. Score 0 Pacific NW, 1 Sacramento!
I am basically burning time and trying to get out some nervous energy before attending a public meeting for one of my remediation sites. I am not even presenting, so I have no reason to be nervous, but I am. It may all the coffee and apple cider I have consumed today.
Actually, funny thing...Somebody told Amanda and I that apple cider has as much caffeine as a cup of green tea. We exchanged glances, nodded and smiled, and redirected the conversation because it felt totally false and poorly informed but we didn't actually know for sure that it wasn't true. Well I have looked and so far as I can tell, apple juice and cider are caffeine free. Has anybody else actually heard this??? I don't remember who told us this, but in case you are reading, I don't think it is true. If you can find a resource that says it is, please post a comment. Rich in Vitamin C? Yes. Delicious apple goodness? Yes. A terribly inefficient use of our apple resources? Yes. A source of caffeine? I don't think so.
