And fifty percent what people think you’ve got.”

Four cups of coffee a day could cut the risk of early death by two thirds.

In “our” never-ending quest not to be bound by time/event constraints this wasn’t posted on National Coffee Day.

(I should say “my” and exonerate Peggy who is punctual and remembers special occasions)

I drink a cup of coffee every morning but according to researchers I need to drink more so I can live a few months longer than I otherwise would . . . .

“People who drank at least four cups of coffee a day were 65 per cent less likely to die during the study than those who never drank it, adjusting for lifestyle and class. The risk of dying early was 25 per cent lower for each extra two cups drunk, according to the results presented at the European Society of Cardiology congress in Barcelona.”

“Although the results do not prove that the drink benefits health directly, they come a month after two large studies found that coffee drinkers were less likely to die of several fatal conditions, suggesting that on average they would live a couple of months longer than non-coffee-drinkers.”

“Scientists said that while they were not recommending a daily brew, it was fairly clear that healthy people did not need to worry about caffeine intake.”

“In the latest study, researchers looked at data on 20,000 Spanish graduates with an average age of 38 at the start of a ten-year study, during which 337 of them died.”

“Coffee drinkers tend to be healthier in other ways which may not have been entirely adjusted for. However, Adela Navarro, of the Hospital de Navarra in Pamplona, who led the study, suggested that the anti-inflammatory polyphenols in coffee could play a role.”

Frankly Freddie – No Trick, All Treat

It’s that time of year when my human-beings buy bags of candy in the pretext of passing it out on Halloween. Then they close all the curtains, turn off the lights and eat the candy themselves.

It’s also that time of year when Peggy & Judy revel in all things “gastly and ghoulish” but cover it up by only publicly displaying their drawings that are “sweet & lovable”

I’m putting their artistic endeavors up for sale on 

 Zazzle.com/catnipblog

“True Love is Seen Through the Heart” MUGS and More

All the proceeds go to buying me my own halloween treats which I shall eat on Halloween with the curtains closed and the lights out.

All the designs are on

  • Cups
  • Napkins
  • Paper plates
  • Mugs
  • AND special order (like t-shirts for real kids and adult kids)

Please buy a lot of these things because all we get is 5% of the sale and that doesn’t buy a lot of treats (human or canine).

Frankly,

Freddie Parker Westerfield, HMS

Head of Marketing & Sales

Pawsitively Tuesday – Witch is true friendship?

True friendship is seen through the heart

not the eyes

HELP!!!  Peggy & I need a vacation – preferably a world cruise. 

All our Halloween products are for sale on Zazzle and we get 5% commission.  At that rate, we figure instead of cruising around the world we’ll have to settle on cruising around the block.  But we are so excited about how our drawings look on REAL stuff we want you to take a look.  (There’s no pressure to buy since we won’t be looking over your shoulder . . . )  

Tell a friend too . . . our cars need gasoline to cruise.

Inktober Retrospective – Week 1

On my personal blog – Curious to the Max I have periodically participated in blog-challenges.   Having a chronic condition like fibromyalgia sometimes derails me so I talked Peggy into participating with me in Inktober.

INKTOBER: 31 Days, 31 drawings, based on pre-set prompts.  

Peggy & I have been doing ink sketches for CATNIPblog so here’s da plan:

I’m posting a drawing a day on Curious to the Max with a Sunday-Retrospective on CATNIPblog.  (We decided since we will never have a “retrospective” in a Museum of Modern Art we’ll host our own).  Here’s the first weeks work of INKTOBER:

Oct 1 Prompt SWIFT – Meowie Rides On!

Oct 2  Prompt DIVIDED – Woofer & Meowie Half ‘n Half

Oct 3 Prompt – POISON, Choose One . . .

Pawsitively Tuesday – Twirl, whirl & swirl

Dance when everyone’s watching

Twirl, whirl and swirl

whether you’re a boy or a girl

Sing when everyone’s listening

Warble, howl and trill

Whoever you are where ever you go

Let everyone know
