Coffee Cup with inscription “ONLY TWO’ to die for you Jesus Christ and the American Veteran

A new blog for all the caffeine crazy people in your world. Please let your friends know or I will personally tell them you knew this AND didn’t tell them:
  1. Jack Daniels is now making whiskey-infused coffee. You have to be 21 to access this website.


2. There is now a line of quality coffee and tea products that come in compostable pods and packaging with plant-based ink.
While that isn’t news this IS: Brewbudz comes with edible cannabis. And pods fit in your Kuerig! Same here: you have to be 21 to enter this website. Sorry, Skeeter.

3. According to GomerBlog, coffee is now OK to keep at nurses’ stations in hospitals. Yes, the Joint Commission, the people that approve the rules hospitals have to live by, found that heavy fines levied against hospitals that allowed caffeinated beverages at nurses’ stations finally had the desired effect. All hospitals banned coffee from nurses’ stations.
However, their statisticians found increase sloppiness, more errors on reports and an increase of residents yawning in patients’ faces. After years of fighting the good fight they finally relented, and the deans of medical education are happy to announce that nurses and residents are now working better together.
4. Of course, #3 is satire for those residents versed in the arts.
I worked in the coffee industry in a roasting plant for fifteen years and I can assure you that there are many healthful benefits to coffee.

Rather than take my word for it, I did a diligent search for empirical data to bolster my claim.

I found several source documents, but I will start with the big guns.
I do not see which types of coffee they are recommending, (here is a list, along with 6 fine articles to whet your whistle.) HOWEVER, I did not see the Greek coffee listed. It is a strong black coffee ground exceedingly fine-like flour.) The article also doesn’t list how strong they brewed it, how long it has been standing (old coffee? YUICK!), and so on. Then we get into the algorithm thing needed to calculate all the variables.
Well, I am here to assure you that your United States Army has an app for that Yes Sir!

It takes into account your innate sensitivity to the brew and determines how much, and WHEN to consume caffeine to maximize benefits and keep those pesky jitters at bay.
The app will be available via smartphone that will enable you to “predict current and future alertness and cognitive performance based on a series of psychomotor vigilance task (PVT) tests, your sleep, and caffeine intake data.”
Now doesn’t that just sound like the U.S. Army? I know you will ask the most obvious question — how many men and women serve in the military?
On January 23, 2019, there were close to 1.4 million people serving in the U.S. Armed Forces. That means that 0.4 percent of the American population is active military personnel.

Military Veterans

As of 2014, the Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) estimates to there were 22 million military veterans in the U.S. population. If you add to the active personnel 7.3% of all living Americans have served at one point.
An interesting tidbit: at the height of the Vietnam War over 500,000 personnel served in-country. I have indicated a link to a previous post on the Vietnam War.
A tidbit: more than half of all veterans are over 60 now.
But we were talking about coffee.
Dr. James Reifman, at the US Army Medical Research and Materiel Command, said that alertness can be improved by 64%!
He also noted that when you drink coffee plays as much a role as the amount.
This link will get you to the tool — sort of. The address for the 2B-Alert Web app is but you will need to put in your username and password, pesky regs.
But the tool is still being developed. It doesn’t say what kind of coffee has the most caffeine either.
But I knew you would ask so I put a link HERE for the amount of caffeine, not only in coffee but soda, tea, etc.
Thanks for joining me.

No Wonder I'm Screwed UP!!!!

This is an important one!!
I just ran into a story I never of checking out. It is titled "How to Become a Writer". I don't know why I didn't think of looking for it before.The article begins (in WikiHow - to do anything by the way !) "The translation of human experience into an artful literary presentation is the art of writing. Writing is a careful craft that follows certain literary techniques and maintains field standards. Most fields in creative writing (from academia and publishing, to grant and technical writing), require a higher degree, including at least a Bachelor's degree, and, often, an MFA in creative writing or an MA in literature, journalism, or a related field. Now THAT is my problem! And I didn't know it. Why didn't someone tell me?How can I expect to be a success, or at least earn a little spending money (I need $100 to buy a new video adapter so I can use two monitors at one tim…

Patriotism - How is Yours?

This is an extremely crucial time in American History. From the time of the Founding Fathers until this present day, there have been many challenges to our Republic.BUT -This time is different.Not only do we have a president that is a narcissist and has no feeling or compassion for the emotions and the plight of others, but he is also the puppet of at least one man whose stated goal is to demolish the United States of America. He is well on his way of achieving his goal.As of RIGHT NOW, supporters of the president are chomping at the bit to shut down the true news in lieu of 'FAKE NEWS'. This, in itself, creates a barrier, a division in our society. In addition, this president has soiled the office of the president with lies, crimes and illegal activities that amount to high crimes and misdemeanors.The House of Representatives will be taking up his abuse of the emoluments clause. The Republican Party sees the current situation as the proper time that they have waited for to sl…
