Need a break?
Here’s a bit of good news (we all need some, however trivial):
People who drink three to five cups of coffee per day are less likely to die prematurely from some illnesses than those who don’t drink or drink less coffee, according to a new study. Drinkers of both caffeinated and decaffeinated coffee saw benefits, including a lower risk of death from cardiovascular disease, neurological diseases, type 2 diabetes, and suicide.

Updated a few links, dropped Geekazine (it’s been five years since I blogged there and Jeffry is a really nice guy, but there are limits), and moved the This Week in Blackness link from the RSS feeds to the blogroll, as TWIB is now the Twibularity and a requires a subscription for full access.
It’s well-worth the subscription and I pay it quite happily. If you don’t want the subscription, there’s still excellent free content. You can listen to TWIB Prime at Balloon Juice.
Also drat. Didn’t realize I was showing the blogroll twice, as I spend most of my time in the back room.
And, no, there are no poker games in the back room. Now, if I could get a foursome for bridge, a game that doesn’t require betting to make it interesting . . . .
