It is not just an opinion anymore

Now there are doctors and science backing up my belief that it is bad to get up too early in the morning. Researchers in Kyoto, Japan revealed a link between wake-up times and a person's cardiovascular condition. "Rising early to go to work or exercise might not be beneficial to health, but rather a risk for vascular diseases," said an abstract of the study. Of course, the people getting up early were also on average older than the people that were not early risers...

But this loosey-goosey science is good enough for me. So, now will someone please tell my dogs to stop waking me up so early in the morning? Who is going to feed them after my early morning induced heart attack?

i never trust research done by people who think rice and fish make for a good meal. but on the off chance they are right this time.....give your doggies benadryl and enjoy sleeping late.

I'm looking for any excuse to get up at the crack of noon.

I'm solidly with you on this one.

I'm doomed! I always have been an early riser. First when I was in gramar school I woke up early so I wuld not have to listen to the alarm clock with the spinning ballerina play "Oh What a Beautiful Morning" to the workday blast of the radio. Somehow, over the years I trained myself to wake up before the alarm. Now what do I have to look forward to?
