Dancing Diplomacy

July 9, 2008

Not exactly, but at least he’s having fun.

But before that, congratulations to Lucy Bonds, owner of Lucy’s Coffee and Tea on University Blvd., and Randy Adamy, owner of O’Henry’s in Homewood, for outlasting Starbucks which had opened shops next door to Lucy’s and around the corner from O’Henry’s. While I will admit to grabbing a Starbucks on occasion, I really prefer coffee from independent shops and they definitely have more atmosphere.

If we could only get a nice coffee shop in Downtown Bessemer now. How many people have told me the same thing? Many. Randy? I can put you in touch with the right people.

The two Starbucks locations are among the 600 across the nation that are closing, due in part to gas prices approaching the cost of a cup of coffee.

Matt Harding is a bad dancer by his own admission. But he dances everywhere, as this video from 2006 shows.



Then he did it again, this time changing things up a bit, especially in Gurgaon, India. And the music is better.

If more people had his attitude the world would be a better place.

Here is his web site if you want to find out more about the guy. Where the hell is Matt .
