Now that is really something new and annoying that  drinking coffee can make u obese? and ugly too? is that the other changes in the body you are referring to?

Hello.  Now I would have to disagree with that.  Just peruse all the pictures of the members of this board.  With very few exceptions, I would have to say that overall its the epitome of Good Looks and Charm.

Uh, Len, maybe only members who (think they) look good post their own pictures?

You may have a point there.  And there could be some photoshopping going on here.

Wasn't there a story of some king who used the death sentence of a set of twins to carry out a related experiment?  Instead of beheading the twins, he decided to make one drink copious amounts of tea, and the other equal amounts of coffee.  The idea was to see who died first.
The king died first while waiting for the result :)  
You can look up the story to see who "won"...but they both lived very long lives.

One separate note of interest: it has been proven that DECAF coffee can raise your "bad" cholesterol level, where there is NO PROOF that regular caf. coffee does!

But y'all probably know that...

My picture took a long time in photoshop to get my fur to look just right.  It was time well spent.

Cute pup Len.

YUP! Border collie, lab, and other stuff mix.  The border collie comes out when trying to run with him and the other stuff comes out when he is indoors and wants to sleep for 20 hours a day. :)

Do you play frisbee with her?  Our border collie Angus can't get enough of it.

We live on a farm and she is always occupied---whether getting her early morning avo snack or running aorund when Bob goes walking around the farm.  She is perplexed by the wild pigs that come at night.  Our very old Brittany barks, but Mollie is her usual stealthy self- not trim and slim, but always stealthy.  My sister told me some Border Collies are great -barking- watch dogs, but not our Mol.  She is Ms. Lovable and oh, so smart and quiet.

aloha,
Cea
