I sometimes forget to try the net to answer my questions.  This is one of those times.  My last post reminded me to do it, and it appears that Caffeine (and alcohol) increase the need to urinate, so it's recommended that people like me that have urination problems due to an enlarged prostate, avoid caffeine and alcohol. 

No problem for me.  Besides what I said about caffeine, I don't like most alcoholic drinks either, and don't drink them.

I have an appointment with a new Urologist in two weeks, and I thought one of the questions on the pre-visit questionnaire was interesting.  It asked about how much Caffeine you ingest, from coffee, tea, soft drinks, and excessive chocolate eating.

I ingest almost none because I don't like coffee or tea, and don't care much for soft drinks with caffeine in them.  I also don't eat an excessive amount of chocolate, even though I love the stuff.

I've never been asked that question before, and I'm going to try to remember to ask the Urologist why the question?  Is too much caffeine bad for the prostate?

Fresh coffee this morning. It's not always that way. I drink only two cups a day--all day, so a pot lasts at least two or three days. I don't mind "stale" coffee. My son-in-law has to have freshly brewed every day and frequently throws out a large unfinished pot. Ouch.

Have a great day.

Looks like a glorious day ahead. Pancakes with peaches this morning for breakfast, a dog walk, and later, golf. Can't beat that. Yes, it's great to be alive--and godless!

Ooo la la, Don. I have both fresh fruits from the yard. Wish my crusts looked that good.

Yum!  Good idea to label the pies with vent holes.  I'm thinking of large families or groups on thanksgiving or xmas when there are many kinds of pies.

We had the last of my raspberry-peach pie for breakfast this morning, out in the deck, with fresh-ground Colombian coffee.  August in Vermont . . .

My new motto, "Let's get it done!"

Privatized railroads are not more efficient than publicly owned ones and this is just one example, Randy. There are some things that need to be public. Water, for example, and medical care, and education.

Remedy? Say "Oh well, and do nothing." Gather like minded people and form coalitions to bring about change. Live life as a victim. Get angry, or grieve, or fear change,
