    Yup, that is me. I can't find any pictures from downrange. I didn't have a digital camera. I'll have to see if my buddies have any. Here is one of me and my then girlfriend (now wife) when I was on mid-tour leave from Iraq.

    Gorgeous pic - you guys look great.

    Here's a little caffeine info to balance out the anti-coffee message...

    Full link

    Coffee drinkers have a lower incidence of thyroid disease, including cancer, thannon-drinkers.

    Caffeine protects the liver from alcohol and acetaminophen (Tylenol) and other toxins, and coffee drinkers are less likely than people who don’t use coffee to have elevated serum enzymes and other indications of liver damage.

    Caffeine protects against cancer caused by radiation, chemical carcinogens, viruses, and estrogens.

    Caffeine synergizes with progesterone, and increases its concentration in blood and tissues.

    Cystic breast disease is not caused by caffeine, in fact caffeine’s effects are likely to be protective; a variety of studies show that coffee, tea, and caffeine are protective against breast cancer.

    Coffee provides very significant quantities of magnesium, as well as other nutrients including vitamin B1.

    Caffeine “improves efficiency of fuel use” and performance: JC Wagner 1989.

    Coffee drinkers have a low incidence of suicide.

    Caffeine supports serotonin uptake in nerves, and inhibits blood platelet aggregation.

    Coffee drinkers have been found to have lower cadmium in tissues; coffee making removes heavy metals from water.

    Coffee inhibits iron absorption if taken with meals, helping to prevent iron overload.

    Caffeine, like niacin, inhibits apoptosis, protecting against stress-induced cell death, without interfering with normal cell turnover.

    Caffeine can prevent nerve cell death.

    Coffee (or caffeine) prevents Parkinson’s Disease (Ross, et al., 2000).

    The prenatal growth retardation that can be caused by feeding large amounts of caffeine is prevented by supplementing the diet with sugar.

    Caffeine stops production of free radicals by inhibiting xanthine oxidase, an important factor in tissue stress.

    Caffeine lowers serum potassium following exercise; stabilizes platelets, reducing thromboxane production.


    I don't buy that it's bad for you. So there.

    WOOHOO!!! That stuff is good to know, because there was no way in hell I would give up my coffee, bad for me or not.

    And Canio, funny coincidence, my avatar pic is a real pic of me too.

    you guys look so shiny and happy. now that i've seen your face, i'm sure i've seen it elsewhere. maybe in another thread? i dunno.

    I don't buy it either that coffee is bad for you. personally, the caffeine doesn't work for me (most of the time); small amounts make me sleepy, and larger amounts make me jittery; the boundary is very fine and dependent on other factors like my activity level and recent food consumption. so i generally go for decaf, but i do prefer the taste of the caffeinated stuff.

    You may know me from such movies as 'Not without My Bacon', 'Me, You, and Bacon Too' and the surprise Broadway hit 'Meat the Musical' featuring such timeless pieces as "Your love is like a steak to the heart", "There ain't no fat like saturated fat" and "Take your wheat and shove it."

    I especially loved you in your more romantic roles, "Bacon Story" and "Gone with the Gluten"
