Reboot. Recharge.

When all else fails, just shut it down for 5 seconds and turn it back on. Just like new!

Kudos to chocolate milk

I recently read a blurb on the benefits of chocoalte milk. Read on:

Drink Milk and Say ‘Moo’ to a Fitter You

They say that milk does a body good, but what about chocolate milk? This sweet concoction has been known to turn many a milk frown upside-down, and mothers across the globe have chocolate to thank for making their kids drink milk. But what excuse do you, as an adult, have to drink chocolate milk? Actually, quite a few – especially if you’re a fitness buff. Not only is chocolate milk a great vehicle for that calcium your bones crave, it’s also nature’s perfect post-workout snack. According to a study from Indiana University, researchers found that athletes who drink 17-ounces of low-fat, lip-smacking chocolate milk after their workout facilitated faster muscle recovery. And the benefits didn’t stop there; at their next workout, the athletes were able to work out for 50% longer than before. This is great news for anyone looking to improve athletic performance or just have a great workout. Just make sure you still count those calories, because 17-ounces of low-fat chocolate milk can easily add up to over 400 calories, depending on the brand. But after you’ve accounted for the calories, be sure to grab a tall glass of ice-cold, low-fat chocolate milk after your next workout and proudly display your milk mustache alongside your lean physique.

I am a big milk it in all forms but skim. I recall KK used to stop on his long rides for the Quik bottles and glug em down.

I'd drink choc milk w/every meal if I could.

yeah - KK would always recharge with chocolate milk.

I like it alot as well. I steal sips from the kids chocolate milk on a regular basis (and their strawberry/vanilla milk - like the article said, its the only way to get them to drink it).
