Coffee Lovers Alert

Was I a happy bunny when I read this report on the BBC News website. Apparently, research suggests that a cup of coffee a day protects the vital blood brain barrier against attack by cholesterol. High levels of cholesterol, in case you wanted to know, can make this barrier leaky. But I'm not going there... where I'm going is here. Coffee is good for you!!!

So now whenever I buy a takeaway latte I can forego my pangs of guilt and greed, and instead drink it with pride, in public, because it's not just making me wobbly around the middle it's protecting my brain!!!

Good to know my brain's not leaky with all the coffee I drink :-)

Hee hee!! I think the next logical step is for me to buy a coffee maker, because in the long run it will save me heaps considering how often I frequent Dome!!

I love a latte. In fact I'm heading out to get one this morning. Coffee is a necessity of life. :-)

I do agree, girls. And I already heard it is good for you! I don't know what I'd do without my coffee--esp. in the morning! I'm heading to my favorite coffee house right now.

See, now, and I was feeling smug because I don't drink coffee. I swear it's one of the good eating habits that I naturally have and don't have to work for. And now this. Oh, well. At least chocolate is good for me. :-D

The odd thing is I rarely drank coffee until moving to Australia, although I think I've spent the last 9 years making up for lost time!!!

Yes, but it doesn't say a cup of coffee an hour does it??????
