I’ve been drinking coffee since I was 17 years old. It started as a way to stay awake at my early-morning nursing-home job after a late night cheering at high school football and basketball games. I didn’t
I'm asking not literally, but figuratively. My life has been quite a bumpy ride for the last 12 months, but it appears to be calming down somewhat now. It was August of 2015 when my elderly mother
