    I admire people who don’t drink coffee for health reasons…

    but I will never be one of them, so I love it when research shows that we coffee drinkers may live longer or be more alert or have cleaner livers…

    Coffee research: yessssssssssss!!!!

    Okay, but now what about the milk I’m putting in it? Does anyone know any reliable source of nutrition info? This is imo the Wild West days of nutrition… you’ve got “experts” all over the map. (F.e., I am now reading a book about how gluten poisons the brain… while I sit here with a huge bowl of whole wheat pasta! Confused??? You betcha!!!) Then there are the long term implications of my allergy medicine.

    I am more or less sold on the Mediterranean thing, and the fish thing (though I haven’t managed to actually start eating it much). But beyond that lies a huge gray area.

    Or, I can just decide not to worry about it! (Though even if I do that, there is still my animal rights friend who wants to get me off dairy. Oy.)

    Meanwhile… I miss Gee too! We hardly knew him.
