Default Doctors orders.

Phone call from my Medic following blood test,& told I must cut down coffee cups to 3 per day. Apparently 6 per day is to many.What the heck?

Wow, 6?!?! At worst I've had 3, but I just don't really feel like more.
Would be easy to get to in a sales-rep type job, shmoozing customers and all.

Look at it this way James: you'll live longer to woodwork more!

It is a sad, sad day when we must be governed by the "have-to-do's" instead of the "want-to-do's"...

Stay healthy, James...small investment for long-term gain...

The doctor said that coffee has lots of potassium in it(or words to that effect) & it showed in my blood count. James jj777746.

Cut out bananas!!! In all seriousness, though. High potassium isn't to be ignored. Cream in the coffee makes it worse. Follow the doc's advice. We want you to stick around for a long time.

One cup a day is too many. As you can tell, I do not drink coffee!

At some point you have to decide whether you’d rather be driving a Corvette or a Corvair. A Ferrari or a Fiat for those not familiar with the first two.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

There's a simple solution, get a bigger cup!
