    Books on tape.

    I put audio books on my ipod and wear my headphones all day at work. If its a good story there are times when I completely blank out and get nothing done for an hour. I'm guessing it cuts my productivity in 1/2, but it helps with my stress level because I'm so distracted.

    I love a stogie when playing golf. Never wore a skirt while doing that, though. I do have some awesome plaid looking golf pants, though.

    Skip the skirt . . . go with a kilt . . . much more traditional when playing the Scot's game of golf.

    How does coffee, unfiltered or otherwise raise cholesterol? (Don't be messin' with my French press, buddy.)

    Oh, Ashcan, Coffee.

    It's the dang terpenes in the coffee. They can be filtered out, but not with unfiltered french press or percolator coffee. The longer the grounds sit in hot water, the higher the oils content.

    This may not affect you, I'm genetically predisposed toward having this issue. Both parents had high cholesterol levels. I wouldn't have dropped coffee if I didn't see such a dramatic improvement. I went from borderline LDL levels (while on Lipitor) to posterchild perfect and my HDL improved a lot too.

    Thanks for the info, I guess. 211 at the last check-up and have been running/diet to bring it down. Guess, I'll have to go shopping for coffee filters.
