Coffee. 1 Coke every other day or every day. Cigars. I really like ice, too. And soap, I like soap. Toothpaste is cool, too.

My students constantly remind me that I am culturally handicapped, so I'm not afraid to ask: What is a 30 year old tea brick? Mineral, vegetable or animal?

Traditionally, chinese tea was baked into bricks for trading, and you can still get some of them from China and Northern India. The tea is mellow and very rich tasting on most of em. Until really fairly recently, they were used in lieu of money in areas of the Himalayas, or so it's my understanding....

This would have been what the "Boston Tea Party" threw into the water btw, not loose tea...

Nora Jones? Hmm..

Hey, I bet if you listened to Chris Izzak and Lucinda Williams for three days in a row and then immediately went for a psych eval you would end up with a new prescription for Prozac.

try resveratrol capsules. They're derived mostly from red grapeskins.

Certain things in life make it worth living and other things blur the line between "need" and "want". I need coffee and to the point of addiction. If I were to run out of coffee I thin I would just go ahead and fall on my sword. The head aches and confusion I experience makes life not worth living.

Went on a diet, went on night shift, and quit caffeen all at the same time, was doing a critical telco cable cut around from a bad, detoriated section to a new section. By the second night I was sick, and did not know what was wrong. I was ready to leave my coworker, leave my tools, leave the manhole open and drive away from $60. an hour, (1998) and put my life long career in danger.

Instead I, (I thought, "Whats wrong") went to an all night 7-11 a couppla hundred yards away, drank a cup, had em brew a pot for the thermos, and b4 the cup was empty I leveled out. I have quit smoking (35 years ago) the toughest thing I ever did, quit drinking a year ago, no problem, became celibate when the 38 year wife put me out by the curb. Lived and am living through all those things, ain't no way I am giving up coffee b4 being rolled in a hole. If I am hospitalized with nothing by mouth they better IV it. I am giving up giving up stuff, any "bad " habits I have I intend to live with, what being 63 years old. I live on board now and life seems OK.

Prefered blend is 50/50 Central Market (Texas) choclate-almond ($7.99lb) and Costco green bag ($3.99) brewed in a grind and brew. That is JUSSSST Right. Others I can live with but I drink em all black. For underweigh, in heavy seas I guess I better think about that, any suggestions. Starbucks new instant?

I like to use one bag of british blend and one bag of Irish blend, I let them duke it out in my tea mug for one to two minutes .

I also keep one pretty tea cup and saucer on board Ocean Girl for when I want to feel civilized...hmm, that rarely happens.

Erika

P.S. 1996, that is fantastic!

Cruising without rum? What would that be like?

I usually don't use it in the morning. But, come sundowner time ...... isn't rum why God created sunsets?

OTOH, we bought some French rum in Martinique. It turned out to be really good for killing freshly caught fish.
