Thanks! I've added it and it is live on the page. He is also credited for discovering caffeine. (bless the man!)

Me, too. If we took the coffee out of my system, my blood volume would probably drop by a quart or two. (And so would my energy level and mood!)

Can we have his entry changed next year to reflect his "real" contribution?

Oh, I added that as well!

Couldn't let a discovery that important go uncredited.

I would like to know where I could get some beet sugar as I am allergic to cane sugar. I have started using white corn syrup in my tea. I use sweetener in my coffee, but it just does not do justice to tea. Luciee {;^)

It seems that folks were more impressed with the caffeine contribution than the sugar one.
If you'll put 'purchase beet sugar' in your search engine, you'll find all sorts of sources. Many companies sell it.

Luciee- I use honey in both coffee and tea, simply because I like that it is healthy in every way.
