In the Navy in 1950 my “buddies” told me to drink it or skip the coffee break.Naive, I believed them but needed four teaspoons of sugar to make it drinkable.Several months ago read of cold-brew in…Continue

I have tea, a glass of water, & breakfast when I get up, & the 2 cups of coffee at 3 or 4 pm. I can't do coffee in the morning.

I only get two cups of coffee when I get up. I don't drink more coffee, or my heart starts beating in an unpleasant way.

I think many of us are just short & stocky, like it or not.

I make my coffee from a mixture of dark roast, espresso, & decaf. Good flavour, & I don't get the shakes.

Watching a beautiful sunrise on the first full day of Autumn, while sipping coffee at my computer. 

No breakfast this morning as I'm doing an "intermittent fasting" day. It helps to keep my belly smooth.

It's suppose to be quite hot and humid today--in the 90's, so I'm going on my daily walk in about 10 minutes.

It's great to be alive--agree?

Not my sort of meal Randall - I have a life sentence of slimming without any progress.. I'll have a dinner of stir fried veg with pepper and ginger and a veggieburger in an hour. With water or herb tea. Have a nice weekend!

I know it's not good for me, but I'm addicted to biscuits and gravy. I buy cheap biscuits and heap homemade cheesy sausage gravy on top. Yum. Don't omit the coffee.

Big weekend coming up. Golf today, my hometown "Summers End Festival", and a big catered dinner at my farm (

Enjoy your weekend.

Good morning (at least for me)! Started the day off with peach topped French toast (my peaches), and coffee (electric perked).

Looks like a nice day--too nice to sit indoors watching boring golf or baseball on TV. I can always find something to do outdoors, even if it involves work.

Have a good one.

Good point Randy. I can't stand coffee that's touched any sort of electric appliance, or that's been warmed up. I get Starbucks Yukon blend and Starbucks French roast at Costco and mix them. Grind it fresh every morning and use a Melitta drip pot. It's good, although weirdly I hate coffee at an actual Starbucks store; it always tastes burned. We have a couple very good local coffee houses here in town when I feel like shelling out five bucks a pop for a nice latté.

Perhaps this comment belongs in the book group, but this seems more appropriate.

Bob Arnot, M.D. (of TV fame) has written  The Coffee Lover's Diet; Change your Coffee, Change your Life.  He's convinced me I've been short-changing myself on enjoying better coffee. I need to get rid of the cheap stuff (Aldi brand) and spend more money on quality coffee. Beans, not pre-ground.

Dr. Arnot says drinking coffee is not just tasty, but healthy with lots of phenols. He lists many health benefits associated with coffee. Very convincing.

Good "Hump Day" morning. Of course, being retired, that's a meaningless term.

Hot oatmeal with fresh blueberries (picked last week) and coffee for breakfast. Ready to tackle the day.

After my walk, I need to cut and remove 3 large limbs--actually tops--from trees that broke and fell during a rain storm yest. One fell on my county road that I chainsawed immediately, as it was a danger to vehicles. They fly down my road. I thought about leaving the limb for awhile to slow down cars and trucks, but worried someone would not see it and crash.

Well, smile and enjoy your day.
