Tues 3/11 This has been an interesting week with lots of tests for myself. Have had a mixture of successful/unsuccessful week days. Am ok when in control of my own environment, but this past week when out with friends I lost control of my commitment. The last 6 days were concentrated with events, on...

To top...

I guess it's because I see them as ...

Is tea drinking a snack?

I've searched and searched but have not come up with a topic about tea or coffee drinking between meals. Is it a snack at any time, and is it a snack if I lace it with Sweet & Low? A cup of tea is so refreshing in the afternoon between lunch and dinner, and again between dinner and bedtime! And then...
