03note_span6005. – The Baltimore Sun Starbucks to Explore Value Menu Options for Menu “Starbucks has yet to offer many details about what Chief Executive Howard Schultz described to investors last week as “several breakfast pairings” at “attractive” prices. More details are expected as early as later this week.  But analysts wonder if the plan will be enough to keep value-seeking customers from abandoning the mermaid for the clown.”

4. – The Chicago Tribune Fish on Ice “For those willing to brave the cold, ice fishing yields some of the year’s best-tasting fish dinners. There are two reasons people ice fish: one, to catch and eat gorgeous freshwater fish that are at peak flavor due to the cold temperatures of the water they’re drawn from, and two, to socialize.

Remember those? How long it had been there, I don’t know. I not only have a digital camera, I’m on my second one. Clearly, it was time for either a major cleaning or an archaeological expedition.”

Does it or does it not make a good cocktail?’ ”
