    Love this. Although I may be the exception to the rule…my Mom was and is my sounding board for nearly everything…

      • We, who have entered our dotage, are trying out tea. Doesn’t seem to have the same effect, although I’m told you’re not supposed to start the day with jitters.

        Which is why I switched from coffee to tea a few months back–that along with it was suggested when I went gluten-free (definitely on hold while in the States where, believe it or not, I find more bready temptations than I do in France!) by someone, I can’t remember who. I found that a more traditional tea such as Earl Grey can’t quite wake me up in the morning but a Chinese black tea? You bet. And no jitters. While I have been here I have been drinking Feed the Hungry’s organic black chai tea because I like the concept along with the taste… 🙂

    I seem to remember Clare Danes approached M for advice and then promptly ignored it – but then that’s what’s one elders and betters are for, ignoring.
