". . . little shall I grace my cause

In speaking for myself. Yet, by your gracious patience,

I will a round unvarnish'd tale deliver . . ."

(William Shakespeare's Othello, I.iii.88-90)

You Can Thank Me At the End of this Post

Some recent health-oriented headlines:

There is no good reason to do abdominal exercises. In fact, they are not good for your back. Just take a walk instead.


Dark chocolate is healthy for you. It's the flavonoids, stupid.


Caffeine may prevent or reverse Alzheimer's. It may also have a positive effect on memory and blood pressure.

There you go. No more crunches. Get up off the floor, put on your walking shoes, pour yourself a cup of coffee, slip some Dove dark chocolate in your pocket, and head outside for some fresh air, sunshine, and deep breathing.

You're welcome.

That caffeine news rings good in this here coffee mug. :D

And, if you are a good parent who invests time in your child's education and recreation, you can let them watch the tube or play video games while you are out enjoying your walk. It's OK! :)

(sorry I don't have the link, but I'm thinking most of us have heard that encouraging news as well)

What I'd like to know is why no one told me I wrote "face" instead of "fact."

My readers are just too darned nice.

It's fixed now.

Wish I'd read this before I started MY new exercise program! OTOH, dark chocolate is part of what got me where I am today... :)

I am enjoying my coffee even more now having read this while drinking it.
