While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday and the most delicious finds on TV.
It’s Friday and we’re feeling bubbly! November 19 is National Carbonated Beverage with Caffeine Day.
Carbonated water was invented in 1767 by Joseph Priestley, but it wasn’t until the late 18th century that flavors were added to the fizzy beverage. Soft drinks were mainly consumed at a soda fountain until bottled soda became common in the 20th century.
The Coca-Cola Company alone provides more than 1.5 billion servings worldwide every day, though not all are in the carbonated camp.
What’s your favorite kind of caffeinated carbonated beverage?

Dr Pepper, definitely! Though I like the cherry flavors of Coke, Pepsi and Dr Pepper, too. Also, at home, I take regular Coke and add cherry or chocolate (or both) to it, really really good!
Pepsi, real Pepsi, is the Nectar of the Gods. But I agree, Dr. Pepper is awesome.
Have to go with Dr. Pepper if we are talking carb drinks. Reminds me of the only times as a kid I could have soda when we went on the annual cross-country Baton Death March car trip vacation.
Dr. Pepper = awesome. Had me some yesterday with my McDizzle breakfast.
Mr. Pibb also good. "Put it in your head".
Just a typical Friday morning.
Let's begin the day. TGIF, me mates.
What better a Friday could I ask for – everyone but secretary and one other person in our group out today. Hmmmmmm, production factor could go either way.
My micro-manager supervisor took an unexpected day off. Today=Eatocracy
My admin is out all of next week, so I will be multitasking. Looks like a quiet day here tho. Nice for a Friday.
Morning,looks like our little problem is back.
My guess is that Kat will sit his IP address in the corner shortly. The cyber equivalent of the kid in elementary school who mashes his entire lunch into his milk carton for attention.
Dudes got alot of ping to multi-thread so fast.
They seem to be right on it as I have yet to see this guy's posts.
'Morning all. Raspberry iced tea for me, and if we are talking booze, it would be a captain and coke.
Fountain coke with extra ice!
Man, that picture makes me want to mix up a gin and 7.
Well Jdizzle will be watching Mystery Diagnosis tonight. A woman who craves a "pickle"!
I actually liked that show. I was also in my teens, but still. X)
Pee-pee in my tea-tea?
