Pony Party: Lack of morning cheer Edition

Morning. But wait I can’t have my usual three cups of coffee, I must cut back.

You know this will work out just fine as long as nobody talks to me until say…. the afternoon….

Anybody with suggestions on tasty caffeine free things please don’t hesitate to come forward….

My husband loves Andy Griffith. I find him annoying. It must be a southern thing. He was great in Face in the Crowd, though….

Face in the Crowd ranks up there as a movie that still holds relevance. If you really want to get depressed watch it in a double bill with Network.


Please don’t rec the pony party, hang out, chit chat and then read some of the excellent offerings here…

    had to look up some alternatives for you:

    how to decaf your own coffee

    and this…

    How to Remove Caffeine from Tea

    “The biggest surprise is that approximately 80% of the water soluble caffeine in tea is released during the first 30 seconds of brewing. So, to remove most of the caffeine from your tea, simply pour boiling water over the loose-leaf tea leaves in your teapot, allow the tea to steep for 30 seconds, and then discard the liquid. Use the same tea leaves with fresh hot water to brew a close to fully decaffeinated cup of tea for drinking.

    You will find this process highly effective, allowing you to enjoy the originally caffeinated teas you love without major concern over caffeine content. Test it for yourself and you will see that it works.

    Be sure to use only loose-leaf, premium-grade teas instead of the tea in teabags. Unlike teabags loose-leaf teas can be brewed over and over again until you have depleted the leaves of their wonderful natural flavor. This means that the same teaspoonful of tea can produce two, three or more cups of tea all from the same leaves. It is nearly impossible to brew a second worthwhile-tasting cup of coffee from the same grounds, or a good second cup of tea from most of the off-the-shelf supermarket teas sold in teabags.

    No More Jitters!

    If you have been a diehard coffee devotee for years, we recommend you switch over to caffeinated strong black teas first, so you won’t miss your little kick. Slowly start decaffeinating these same quality leaves until you no longer feel withdrawal symptoms-typically headaches and sluggishness. In fact, you may start feeling better than ever soon-after all, besides incredible taste, tea is considered by many as the healthiest beverage on the planet. To get started, find someone who is knowledgeable about the various types of tea and willing to help you with your selection, based on your personal taste preferences.”
