		No Bruce, coffee and chocolate make up the 5th food group.
My mother said
		as you get older if is harder to sleep and I hate to admit
she is right.  As
		to your question about waking up on days off, YES, I do and
I hate it.  I
		can't even sleep in anymore.  I find now I sleep an average
of about six or
		seven hours tops.  Longer than that and I just dose and wake
up.  It can't
		really be age can it?  Pam Marcum
