    a lot of the ideas about tea and coffee are from folklore. I once gave my grandmother 'bean coffee' as old folks called it in the afternoon. She had requested decaf because otherwise, she could not sleep. We had just had a big family party, so I was sure we had decaf, otherwise, we did not...

    sitting on packed suitcases. Luckily a direct flight, not like normal, I will be more offline these days than online, I am sure. I am already a nervous wreck, flying isn't as much fun as it used to be, and I will be gone for 2 months, I hope my family, animals, and plants will survive. In the...
