Default International Coffee Day is coming up!

I just learned that this Saturday, Sept 29, is International Coffee Day!

It's been happening since 1983 and I didn't even know it. This is a big day for those of us fueled by caffeine. Wikipedia has an entry on it, including a photo of a cup of coffee, for people who don't know what one looks like.

Cool Bring on the Dark Magic Brew

WoO hoo! Thanks for letting us know!
Those who know me well know that I LOVE coffee. I will have to bring some special beans to share with my family as I will be going to my home town for a wedding this weekend.
My current favorite is the organic fair trade Honduran from Trader Joes. That's a nice one, and a great price for such a good product! Mmmm Coffee...
Cheers!

It was only recently discovered that one cup of coffee reduces blood flow to the brain by 40%.

I must have been brain dead for the last 30 years and just didn't notice.

That tells you the brain doesn't need that much blood. And where does that 40% deviate to? I'd like to know Viagra numbers.

When I was a kid I was told I could get red hairs from drinking coffee.

Fixed it.
Now back to your regularly caffeinated program...

von.ah,
Thanks.

I have been on a forced no caffeine, no alcohol, no dairy diet for three weeks due to some health issues. Not much fun. The doctor says I can have one cup if I am good.
Can't say the no coffee has helped by brain any. I am still stressed out by someone I work with that has a personal agenda that does not match the company goals. If I had enough beer, maybe I wouldn't care, but no beer either!
