just why would mitt say he was going to get rid
of big bird
he has lost the vote of those under 6 years old voters

joe and paul debate tonight
good contrast in ideas and age
should be interesting
joe needs to not make a guffaw tonight

seems mitt has to win virginia florida and ohio
dont you just hate it when they already know
stuff before it happens
it takes the fun out of all of it

its not the popular vote its the electoral vote that 
mitt or obama needs to win the election

again when you vote in my state whichever way
you vote romneys going to win
thats just the way it is 
but i still plan on voting anyway as should you 


theres this wonder drug that does all these great things
it may even help cure cancer heart disease and alzheimers

its an old drug
its caffeine
yep a cup of coffee or a spot of tea may do the trick 

i ran across this article this am form medscape
as i sat drinking my cup of coffee

warning potential side effects are nervousness insomnia
glaucoma increase blood pressure increase anxiety affect
glaucoma and those withdrawal symptoms if you stop it
like headaches

otherwise that 1st and 2nd cup of coffee may be good for you 

although it can increase blood pressure it can lower the risk 
for coronary disease and protect against heart failure
it may lower ldl cholesterol and decrease inflammation 
often the increased blood pressure is short lived

it can cut stroke risk by 25%

it increases glucose metabolism reduces risk for type 2 
diabetes and increases weight loss

it may decrease cancer risk from several types of cancers
at higher doses like 3-4 cups a day

 it may slow progression of dementia and parkinson disease
in mild cognitive impairment it may delay progression for 
2-4 years

maybe thats why my short term memory loss seems stable
or is it the aricept (donepezil) or both

it may decrease the risk for getting depression 
it may affect dopamine and serotonin levels
the same chemicals some depression meds affect

it slows progression in liver disease in alcoholic cirrhosis
non alcoholic fatty liver disease and maybe decreases
the risk of hepatic cancer

it helps in dry eye syndrome gout and may help prevent 
mrsa infections

think ill sip on that second cup this morning
maybe itll help me find my billfold

  1. TOGD, go look in the barn, you might find your wallet, or under the seat of the truck??? Maybe in the garden, or on top of one of the water tanks.

  2. probably buried in the sofa cushions from one of his world famous mid-day football naps..

  3. One time I put my car keys on top of my diet coke in the fridge so I wouldn't forget to take my drink when I left. But it didn't work, because several hours later when I was leaving I forgot I had done that, so I didn't find my keys until I got thirsty for a diet coke.
