I was just thinking it had been a while since anyone took the embedded "slow pitch". You made my day.

I wake up an hour before the the coffee pot starts gurgling to take my meds. Than its back to sleep until the smell of fresh coffee penetrates the bedroom. I like it black, 2 in the morning, one after my nap.

Not at all. At times, I do stop in the early afternoon, or after skating for a cup at the coffee bean, for a cup. I do enjoy the scenery, as in young lasses doing homework. And appreciate the free doses of youthful pheromones.

I don't feel guilty anymore about my love of coffee. Health benefits now include lower risk of diabetes, Parkinsons, dementia, bladder cancer, liver cancer, cirrhosis, and certain heart problems. Although it does increase blood pressure for a small amount of time after drinking.

It's one pleasure of life I'd really miss if I had to do without.

I have to drink strong black coffee so I can stay awake until bedtime.

Since the recent price increases, we have been drinking Walmart's Great Value Dark Roast Ground Coffee. In my opinion that's good coffee.

Remember, no matter how old you may look, you will not get a senior coffee at McDonald's unless you ask for it. (Usually costs $.50 to $.75)

During the 50s, my mother would put on the coffee about 5 a.m. in preparation for my father going to w*rk, and of course I could smell it, liked it, and developed a lifelong appreciation of coffee. These days I only drink two cups daily but would be grouchy without them.

BTW: I bought this Ethiopian coffee in Costco called Yirgacheeffe coffee. It was billed as "This coffee is considered by many to be consistently the best in the world with a more intense flavor than any other coffee in existence."

It's good, but that's a strong boast, when there are so many good ones.

Dude, if phereomones is your thing, take up social dancing. I never realized how good a woman's hair smells. Makes me horny just thinking about it.

+1.
Once in awhile I get wild in the afternoon and make some iced coffee. I always pay for it later since I can't sleep then...sigh.

Both DW and I are beneficiaries.

We are not much into dancing, though if there was no DW I'd be out there hoofing it.
