Warm and Sneezy

Bogey has a home, Sue had her surgery, Uncle John fell again but is fine, I have a head cold I'm fighting off with soup, echinaccea and probiotics. Two many days of Starbucks nutrition combined with hospital sitting and sleeping with kids has left my immune system a bit down.

I did get to try the gargling with vinegar thing-it actually works, although the taste is probably as nasty if not nastier than salt water. Still, in the name of science we (I) must try these things. Actually, Sue had a sore throat before she went to the hospital, so I got her to try it first.

Vinegar is the new wonder drug these days. I tried to get Jay to put some on a bug bite-he was somewhat resistant. Men never listen.

I read somewhere the other day that if you'll fill pretty bottles with Vinegar and it will remove bad smells from the air - better than air refreshner that just covers up the smells. Now, I'm not sure if you have to leave the bottles open or how it works but I think I'll give it a try.

Glad to hear the doggy got a home and that John is fine! sit in the sun and bake out that cold.

I bet you leave the bottles open. I'm washing away with my netti pot and taking probiotics and echinaccea. The outflow is horrendous, but better into the tissue than into my lungs, and the kids are mightily impressed with my snot skills.
