No matter the brand or the make

  • On the coffee beat, WLS AM cited some British survey that if you drink coffee, then nap for 20 minutes, that gives the brain time to clear out the receptors and let the molecules attach to them, making you much more alert.

    Of course, Daniel J. Flynn has no axe to grind.
