Lindy, I have to admit that I haven't used the mug yet. We have a whole shelf full of special mugs from trips here and there, and other ones I found. We are currently using the British slogan "Keep Calm, and Carry On", from WW II. Nice cups in red with white letters and white with red letters. I also use my faithful USMC mug. The Savas Beatie mug will take a prominent place on the shelf, and I will render the proper honors to it tomorrow morning with the first cup of the day at 0500 your time. Probably flavored with creme brulee coffee from my lightning fast Bunn coffee maker. Is that to much information.
Maybe I will even toast Savas Beatie by facing west and in the old Dickens' style say, "God Bless Us, Everyone".
Remember, you had to ask.
