I am not an expert on Immigration but, I have read a lot about immigration procedures. I think that everyone with a visa other than a simple tourist visa can apply almost immediately for permanet residen alien visa (green card). But do not take my word for it, since i can not remember well. I meant that I am not immigration expert, but I have read about immigration procedures (USA). You can begin right away, as long as your employer has already conducted the necessary recruitment procedure for the Labor Certification. Labor Certification under PERM is now taking just a few months, and there after you can simultaneously submit your Immigrant Petition and green card application. Rachel Houston, TX

It all depends on what type of green tea you are drinking. If you are about to go to sleep then I would suggest drinking decaffeinated green tea. But if you ask me I would say that green tea, if decaffeinated makes a great relaxing beverage.
