Beethoven was persnickety about his morning cup of coffee.  
He refused to drink any cup of coffee that was not made with exactly 60 coffee beans. 
Sometimes he would count them out himself to be certain. --His brewing method, reportedly, was grinding 60 coffee beans, pouring hot boiling water over them and letting them steep to death.  It was too ridiculously strong for his contemporaries!

Interestingly, that's about the same amount of beans in a standard cup of coffee-shop coffee nowadays... a little less, even!

It's 'Hear-Hear!' as in listen-listen to what the guy is saying.
not 'Here-Here!' as in location-location.
Unless you want everybody to listen to what YOU have to say...
in which case the expression is 'Hear-Hear-Here-Here!'
or possibly: 'Hear-Here-Hear-Here!'

are you listening to me?

Huskies can run long distances on very little food as they are able to burn a large amount of calories without accessing their fat and carbohydrate stores; Huskies do not tire easily.
They regulate their metabolism better than we humans.
(who are relegated to our daily coffee infusions)

works for me...

It is difficult to accept the fact that we see everything upside-down. ...all due to the refraction of light through the convex lens of our eyeballs.  Our brain takes the capsized image and rearranges it so it matches the tactile sensation of our environment.

...you'll find however, that far more honest drawings can be had when rendered inverted...

       It's time to come clean!
Peanuts are not nuts, they're legumes
Walnuts are not nuts, they're seeds.
Sunflower seeds are not seeds, they're kernels
Black-Eyed Peas are not peas, they're beans.
Coffee is not a bean, it's a seed.

I'm not crazy. I'm a nut.

Many, many skull novices assume the teeth are part of the bones of the skull.
They are not.
Nor is the skull one big blunt tooth.

I'm glad to be able to help here.

Dogs taste salty.
And cats don't taste sweet.
...and neither seem much interested in coffee.

House flies poop every two minutes or so.  Some believe they poop every time they land as their liquid diet runs speedily through their short digestive track.
Still want to eat that doughnut that's been sitting on the counter all day?

I have to get back to my drawing now.
