Gee, I haven't contributed here for awhile. In fact, I see that the last day I added a comment, my father died. Little did I suspect.

It's "grandparents day" at my grandson's elementary school. Oh joy. I get to be with my ex-wife. I think the other set of grandparents will be there, too. It'll be a zoo. Stayed tuned. 

Have a nice weekend.

My new urologist said caffeine produces more urine, but not a big deal for most people.

Weekend! For me, that's not much different than weekdays. I just don't play golf--hike the country roads instead. Watch TV sports perhaps. Today, I'm going to my granddaughter's birthday party (3). Have a good weekend.

Enjoying the cool. We had a few hot stuffy weeks that ended in rain and thunderstorms - lovely! Temperature dropped below 24°C. There's a tradition in this country to grumble about the weather, but at the moment just happy faces all around!

Took the dog (Dot) on a walk after breakfast this morning. Got caught in an isolated rain shower. I got soaked for 1 minute. Daily shower, I reckon. Gonna be a hot one again. Everybody okay?

Spud, I sorta doubt if the caffeine question had anything to do with prostate problems. I've never heard about any connection. And personally, I think (from what I've read) that the benefits of caffeine outweigh the harmful effects. Otherwise, I'd cut them out, although I love dark chocolate, and coffee and tea.

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!
