    Starbucks in Milpitas
    128 N. Milpitas Blvd.
Take 680 North to Calaveras Blvd. Go towards 237 on Calaveras Blvd to N. Milpitas Blvd. Turn right. Go to first stop light(I think Town Center Drive) and turn right. Starbucks in on your immediate right.  There are tables outside and the inside also has quite a bit of room.


A WOMAN'S POEM (contributed by Shirley)
When I was in my younger days,
I weighed a few pounds less,
I needn't hold my tummy in
to wear a belted dress.
But now that I am older,
I've set my body free;
There's comfort of elastic
where once my waist would be.
Inventor of those high-heeled shoes
my feet have not forgiven;
I have to wear a nine now,
but used to wear a seven.
And how about those pantyhose
They're sized by weight, you see.
So how come when I put them on,
the crotch is at my knees?
I need to wear these glasses
as the prints were getting smaller;
and it wasn't very long ago
 I know that I was taller.
Though my hair has turned to silver
and my skin no longer fits;
On the inside, I'm the same old me,
Just the outside's changed a bit.
