I'm of the opinion that little donut bites, especially the ones covered in chocolate or chocolate glaze, may just be the perfect food and the secret to a long and happy life.

My 2 year old agrees completely, except feels that the once a week he gets one is far too small a dosage.

WOW!! I get major heart palps at 2 cups. I can't have more than one cup in the AM. I usually drink one to two cups of green tea during the day. I find that the caffeine in green tea has a different effect. Much more pleasant, IMHO...

As far as it applies to the military or the police forces, that study is probably fatally flawed unless they used two heaping scoops per cup and let it boil down overnight. If it won't strip three coats of wax off Lonmat then it's not strong enough.

Two cups of green tea each morning and, if I'm not swept up by the day's events, a couple cups of Kona after that.

Although I may make an exception on those bitter-cold 72-degree winter evenings when I need to stay awake past 9 PM. Excuse me, I'll be back in a few minutes...

Re: Good for you?

There is so much bad coffee in the world that I mostly drink tea. Don't have to wait for the pot to get made. English Breakfast Tea must have 4x the caffeine as coffee. Good stuff.

Discovered yerba mate [bush tea from Argentina or Uruguay or Brazil] a while back. Some people have described it as drinking steeped cigarette ashes or lawn clippings, but I like it better than green tea and it grows on you. Wakes me up without that clutching hand on the heart. Gotta get the version in tea bags, though. If any infusion ever needed a bag around it, this is it.
