Caffeine and me

Two recent studies have put my beverage habits on the high ground. First we had the news that daily caffeine intake reduces the risk of Alzheimer's. Then the word comes that the rule about drinking eight glasses of water a day is pure bunk.

If caffeine helps you stay mentally sharp, I think I drink enough coffee to add about 10 IQ points. And when I'm not drinking coffee I'm usually drinking iced tea. Water is fine in a pinch or if you're really thirsty, but I had despaired of ever drinking eight glasses a day.

Starbucks, anyone?

Nice. So I guess you'll be wanting some of these for your birthday then?

Maybe so, if you think your old man has gone to seed...

Actually, I'll stick to the chocolate covered espresso beans. :-)

I bought Kathy a Keurig Elite K-cup single cup brewing system a while ago. It has blown us away with how good coffee can be. We had to purchase a second one for our daughter and son-in-law. The cool thing is you can have a fresh cup of coffee NOW!
