FATHER’S DAY TRIBUTE!
I started this blog as a way to keep track of all the SBX City Mugs that I am trying to collect. I would pick up a SBX city mugs from the cities I went to but then the obsession started 3 years ago after my trip to San Francisco with my friends. This was the beginning of what is to come and shockingly, many new friends and from ‘mugging’ along the way. I grew up around 5 miles from Washington DC and I now live around 10 miles from Washington DC. Everyday, I try to modify my blog so SBX city mugs collectors has a place where there is a centralized place for Global Icon Mugs. I don’t want to do all of the SBX city mugs out there, NOT JUST YET. I might once I have the time and have PERFECTED a good design for this blog. It’s been 3 years already and it is STILL a work in progress.

I SPENT 2 DAYS UPDATING ALL THE SERIES I FOUND FROM THE YAHOO GROUP THAT I FIRST JOINED WHEN I STARTED COLLECTING. THAT WAS HOW I FOUND THAT WE CAN TRADE MUGS. I KNOW THIS BLOG SEEMS OVERWHELMING NOW BUT NO FEAR, JUST COLLECT WHAT YOU FEEL LIKE. EBAY IS THE BEST SOURCE BUT OTHER COLLECTORS MIGHT HAVE OLDER MUGS SITTING AROUND TO TRADE. TRY YOUR LUCK! I HOPE THIS LIST IS COMPLETE!!
THANK YOU FOR VISITING AND THOSE THAT I HAVE BECOME GREAT FRIENDS WITH, THANK YOU FOR YOUR FRIENDSHIP AND KINDNESS IN HELPING ME GETTING ALL THE MUGS!

I am surprised with the comments I’ve been receiving. I didn’t think anyone would find me so I mostly do it for myself and then to send to friends but I am happy if I could find other Starbucks trader from this. I am coming pretty close to getting all the USA Global Icon mugs. There are some tricky ones that I might end up just buying on Ebay…

I’ve been obsessively updating this blog. I decided to add in ALL the Global ICON series that I think are out there so people can have a complete knowledge and understanding what my dilemas on getting these mugs are! I didn’t want to do it before, because I didn’t really know how to design my blog. Life is a learning experience and the mind has to be motivated in order to achieve to the next level. I think I am there now! I can now go onto my blog, and see what I am missing and then go from there! I’ve also been very active with my community so I’ve met a lot interesting people along the way. When you live in Washington DC, you meet all sorts of people that have moved from all over the county, and the world to work here! 30 years ago, we would never have thought that, but now, slowly and surely, they all are coming here!

This blog has helped SB collectors to find each other and I am extremely happy with that. I love that we have the same passion and like to share. The laws of attraction is so effective! Happy trading everyone!

Today is the beginning of a new challenge in my life, therefore, I am updating my blog and FB page. Lately, I’ve had more people finding the blog and the FB page so definitely, it’s wonderful to meet people with the same hobby in life. This is definitely NOT a cheap hobby and time consuming but worth it!

I just learned yesterday that there are 197 TUMBLERS so far and I have about 10 or less? Thanks to Dan Aborgina! He has most of it on his blog! The more I find out about WordPress, the more I love it! I am all about shareware and non-profit organization and helping the less fortunate. I KNOW, it’s ironic that I am collecting these mugs that are very COSTLY but I am not about having them all ASAP but more interested in how it got to me and the friends I meet along the way. It’s like a token of appreciation and thoughtfulness that is embedded in the efforts of buying me a mug or two and carrying it all the way back. I am very guilty of being extremely lazy to buy anything for anyone. I only bought souvenir for my MOM only when I went traveling anywhere. Naturally, is the person I love most in this world, the giver of life through nature and nurture. Then came the nieces and nephews because they appreciate it so much and their love is very pure.
The other day when I changed my theme, I put in a counter and to my shocking surprise, I have almost 60,000 visits! I HAD NO IDEA!! So that led me to learning more features of WordPress and life works in mysterious ways because the success of WordPress didn’t come from greed but just the generosity of talented people that just want to give back to the world. Thanks WORDPRESS!
