@jcboy,
Day to day I don't have time but when I have to get the train I look forward to a nice nap...I always sleep on the train, even if I slept great the night before and it's 11am or something, must be something about the movements

This topic makes me think that the next A2K gathering should just be conducted in a big, carpeted room, warm but not too hot, and everybody gets blankets and pillows.

@jespah,
I get 3 pillows.

I need 3 pillows. Not 2, but 3..... 4 is right out.

I'm like the holy hand grendade of Antioch when it comes to naps.
Just consult the Book of Nap Paraphernalia, Chapter 2, Verses 9-21

Just making my needs known beforehand, and what I will, and will not consent to as far as naps.

Little pillow (this is an artist's rendering thereof; the real little pillow is in the other room and my phone is downstairs) -

ok, I'll start a list as soon as a couple more nappers put in their requests.

I'll go look for a note pad.

@jespah,
5 alfalfa bales, laid so they may describe a mesa of 3 ft wide, 2 ft high and about 6+ feet long. On one side I place a rolled up woolen horse blanket and I cover using a second. Ive been napping thus for many a day and night this month. It actually refreshes by not describing a saggy bed that "gives" .
I do need a radio or CD /MP3 however.
INPUT, I crave INPUT (except for **** like Limbaugh, OOReilly, or Beck)

@farmerman,
That makes sense farmer. It's taken care of. Alfalfa is on the way.

However, we will be needing to get a variety of earphones and earbuds for those who want to listen to something, and ear plugs for those who don't want to hear others snoring.

Do you only need 2 horse blankets? You don't need a spare?
Thanks for reminding me, I'll also need either a t-shirt or towel or something like that to put between my legs. Can't nap or sleep with my thighs touching.

BTW, I've got 2 cats on stand by. One will not venture any higher than your feet, maybe your ankles, but he makes up for it by purring loudly and making little whining noises when he dreams.
The other will gladly lie on top of whatever middle part of your body is currently facing the ceiling. Alternately he will lie on whatever side you are facing, imediately moving around whenever you turn over. His specialty is the butt directly in your face position.

@chai2,
Never mind , I have my own alfalfa. Im kinda obsessive about my hay as a food product for the stock. If its too stemmy to sleep on, then its too stemmy to feed to the sheep.(Cows'l eat their own bedding ), they don't have any class.

I don't think anybody'l be sleeping in the barn with me so Hell w/ the ear buds. I hate em.
If Im working a field and listening to music , I ear a big set of lhones that are more like ear muffs. I don't wanna hear tractor noise, the plow drawbar squeak gives me chills, like some people get from chalk on a blackboard. (Talk about a noise that I find uncomfortable)

@chai2,
I need a king-size pillow, a regular pillow and a neck roll. Also a crib-size polar fleece blanket and duvet. Two dogs, one for my side and one for my feet. A big glass of still water.

I'm ready to nap now.

I require a freshly laundered onesie and my yellow, quilted blankie. I also require Formula 1 racing to be on the TV, with the sound turned right down, and a white Toblerone.

Here's the secret to longevity from someone celebrating her 116th birthday.

Okawa attributes her incredible life span to getting plenty of sleep, eating well, and taking a nap as needed.

She told the paper, "Eat and sleep and you will live a long time. You have to learn to relax."

Is she cute or what?

@jcboy,
I can't recall ever taking a nap during the day when I've not been sick.

Sitting in front of my TV, I cud not understand
Y pushing as hard as I cud on the mute button had no effect on the TV,

While an afternoon nap may pep you up in the short-term, over time the indulgence could increase the likelihood of a premature death by almost a third, scientists claim.

Those who doze for an hour or more in the day may be putting themselves at risk of developing lung diseases including bronchitis, emphysema and pneumonia, the Daily Mail reported.

However, an academic not linked to the study have stressed that the figures show the majority of people will see no adverse affects from napping.

Adults who nap every day are two-and-a-half times more likely to die from respiratory illnesses than those who only sleep at night, because napping can cause inflammation in the body, according to researchers.

The study published in the 'American Journal of Epidemiology' also suggests that needing to take a nap could itself be a sign that a person already has a lung disease.

To make their findings, researchers at Cambridge University tracked the lifestyles of 16,000 British adults who had agreed to be a part of a major research project into the causes of cancer over a 13-year period. ...

After analysing the data, scientists discovered that people who slept for less than an hour in the day increased the chance of death by around 14 per cent. This number rose to 32 per cent if the nap lasted for more than an hour, and was linked to the development of respiratory illnesses, according to the study.

Professor Jim Horne, from the Sleep Research Centre at Loughborough University, told the Daily Mail that most people are not at risk from napping.

"The findings actually show that the great majority – about 85 per cent – of those people who napped less than one hour were at no greater risk."

He added it is possible that the people who took part in the research and had serious and incurable lung illnesses might have benefited from their naps. "[Napping] may not have hastened death but delayed it" he told the newspaper.

@Walter Hinteler,
Yeah, but I'll be well rested when I die.
