Aside from the usual medicines, you could try to work onions and garlic into your foods. They (and probably some other foods that I can't recall at the moment) have antiseptic enzymes that your body can use to attack things growing inside of you.




Ginger and turmeric! Garlic also, but ginger, and lemon, and honey! In a drink! They're Deliciousness. And turmeric is good for you as well, even if it's less delicious. I... had a cold once, and a 'friend' stood over me and forced me to drink a quarter-cup of powdered turmeric and hot water. She gave me some jam and bread afterwards to help with the awful taste, but man. The cold did vanish pretty quickly, but I refuse to believe it was because of her help.

... happily, the next time she got a cold, I got to make her drink half a cup of Powdered Awful.

... Why not just have a curry? You'll definitely be able to taste it, even if your nose is bunged up, and ginger and garlic and turmeric and, hell, a glass of orange juice can go in.

I find this thread's lack of Hot Toddy recipes.... disturbing.

Though this post looked for a moment like it was going there:

Try lemon, honey, tea, cloves, and whisky.

Or even better, take it straight. Drop by my place and I'll set you up with some Aberlour a'bunadh. The hope is that you'll survive, but the cold will not. Kind of like chemo, only far tastier.

Where is this place you speak of that I can drop by and have a tasty adult beverage?
It's just getting that October snap in the weather now, and damn if it doesn't turn a man's thoughts to whisky.
That is, it makes me think of whisky. Or want whisky.
Wee dram please, kthxbye.

Locating me is simple; getting here, not so much.

Was that you I saw on Google Earth, waving from the peak?


Thank you.

Holy s**tuff.
You're an hour away.
Wanna go hunting?
I've got tags.
And extra ammo. Also rifles.
You bring the adult bevvies.

(Am just over the border, in Ashland, now.)

I wish I had time to hunt.

Well, actually, I wish I had time to fish, since I don't hunt. Given my druthers I'd be over in Smith River this week, the salmon have started and this weather is gold. But nope! I won't have a chance to get over there for another month.

All I have time for these days is homework, paperwork, and avoiding homework and paperwork.

Guess which one I'm doing now?
