    Tea. I have teas from Africa, Britain, Ireland, and other wonderful places I am sure. Did you know that there is only one type of tea plant in the world? Yup. The difference in teas, such as "green" and "black" are determined by the drying time and the way they are dried/processed.
    Sugar. I have to use 100% demerara sugar for my tea. I am always trying to drink my tea without sugar, just to condition myself, but I still revert back from time to time.
    Food. I love food. I love to cook. I will go days at a time without food, just to test myself. Most times I eat only once per day with a light snack in the morning. And I will occasionally eat foods I store, but from time to time I like to throw a hunk of salmon on the grill, or a nice T-bone. Yes, food can be quite awesome, really. I need to run more.

    I have 2 bills in life aside from the standard utilities in the northeast. One is my truck insurance payment, the other is internet. I only use a prepaid cellphone, which comes to about $20 every 90 days. I have zero debt. I own everything I have.

    I enjoy coffee, I buy beans from all over the world at Costco and grind them fresh daily.

    Another passion is accurate rifles.

    Mine is Pizza from a local resturant that uses corn meal tossed in the brick oven and then slides the pizza on to bake. [drooling] That pizza oven is older than I am. According to my kids, that is really really old.

    The Missus is Earl Grey Tea. I clean out the local Wally World every time I go there. The most i got at one time was 12 boxes right after they stocked it.

    Other than that I guess it would be electricity.

    Hmmmmm...Other than eating at the local Greasy Spoon? None of those are things I'd feel "guilty" about ....Guess I think of "Guilty" Pleasures as ones I really don't want to tell anyone about , and know it's not good for me, either Physically, Emotionally, Spiritually, or Intellectually.....

    Coffee Beans? Tea? Holding my kids? Those are Joys in life...Nothing I'd feel guilty pleasure about...Electricity? As long as it's available, and I can pay it...It's a necessity....and a pleasure. But I don't feel guilty about it..:)

    Now watching some Reality TV shows.....that's something I don't tell people and feel guilty about...

    Eating Marshmellow Fluff out of the Jar with a spoon...ditto.

    And that's all I'm admitting to right now....[angel]

    Every time I fill the scooter with mid grade (she won't run very well on 87 octane) I get these pangs of guilt since I know there is more stocking up and preparations to be made. But as soon as the potholes get filled and the road opens up, it all goes away. There's something about leaving cagers behind that sweeps all guilt away.

    Guilty pleasures?

    I don't think pleasure and guilt belong in the same sentence together. :D

    In the winter, laying in bed on Sunday morning with a 5 lb Sunday newspaper to read and a pot of tea - tea variety changes from week to week, it all depends on my mood. In summer, same routine but sitting on the porch.

    The good:
    Surrounded by good friends, a nicely grilled steak, garlic mashed potatoes, catching fish, killing a deer. Enjoying some Stranahan's whiskey with my lover. Sleeping late. A day at the range.
    The bad:
    I want to retire as an old kook, riding high rise elevators and cutting nasty gas, and when people complain I'm going to look at them like a liberal, and drool all over someones shoes.

    Having just moved away from NC after 30 years of residence I would say this...choose CAREFULLY where you move to. Much of the eastern part of NC is awash in hog farms. (and I do literally mean awash)

    You couldn't pay me to move to the Charlotte area.

    The northwestern part of the state is the best.

    I live and farm in the eastern part of NC and can provide information on anything that you want to know for this part of the state.... other than FRAN/FLOYD the hog farms were not an issue... (more sewage from the cities than the farms... tho the farm spin kept them out of the news) I agree with the Charlotte are as not being a great area...
