I guess San Pedro translates as Saint Peter, which is were I am writing from. Were it not for Starbucks I would be sitting at the Yum Yum Donuts getting fat on buttermilk donuts and crappy coffee or at the 7-11 a few blocks down the street responding to emails from my car.
Have you ever wondered how your life would be different were it not for the Starbucks, Coffee beans, Targets, Walmarts and all the other corporate stores? I can tell you, personally I would be fatter and hard pressed to find a place to pee and connect with the internet while on the road. So far as much as we hate them, these Starbucks and McDonalds of the world, they sure do make our life a heck of lot eaiser, which is why I am in San Pedro to make life easier for a few tenants at an apartment complex who seem to have a difficult time when it rains because thier roof leaks.
San Pedro is also home to very cool ports of call and a huge freight terminal that has as many overhead cranes as a park has trees. I am sure the things most of purchase during the holidays come through these here ports!
Long live leaky roofs, ports of call and my favorite – Starbucks.
That’s a few random things I am thankful for this Thanksgiving week. What are you thankful for besides the normal things we all seem to remember?
Thought for the day: Be Thankful for even the things we bitch about.
