Tully's will be a publicly traded company in '06...like it or not..and no, paul allen nor any of the others you mention are shareholders...but one of the billionaire McCaw brothers owns a major holding..unfortunately he passed away and those shares have been purchased by another investor...
Hey Shabby, my friend Bassman and I were having a conversation about marketing coffee - butt out of stuff you cannot understand. Lemme dumb it down for you: When A and B are talking - C you way out of it.
Yes, DD is on their way to a 7/11 style approach like the "Try Our New Kona Blend Coffee" which is like 1% Kona and 99% Crappa.
Human slugs like the Bareback Mtn Boys (Whacknut, Blabmoron, Yellpoostie and Spit&cuss) would love it though.
Shabby, you sure are getting your ears boxed at the new CBOU board. 130 post their already. I joined it today. There are some folks very into the Caribou brew. I like the ice cream news. They teamed up with some JAVO.OB on the ice cream. Some guy said on there he bought 5000 shares of that stock at .28 this morning. I don't mess with pennies on the pinks or bb myself but will follow it.
When I saw those new "real lattes" signs I had to laugh and meant to bring it up here, but forgot too.
That does tell you alot about a company when they make those decisions. Reminds me of 7-Eleven.
You have it right there, Shabba, he's glee club 100% yet now and then he finds a nugget. We're
talking emotional basket here. Anything off topic and he goes wack--wacko--wakem--you know the drill. I think he has his eye on stealing bbags away from wakem-----lol.
