    The trick with the honey is that it should be local honey. Fortunately, we have a group of beekeepers and a small local grocery that sells local honey.

    I got a prescription for coughing from my Dr. Didn't work, got another, didn't work, got another and it worked great. You have to find the one that works for you. Next time you will know what to ask the Dr. for.
    I believe giving what I can will never cause me to be in need.
    Being cheap is not a badge of honor.
    My heroes are working people, paying their own way, taking care of their children and being decent human beings.

    the flu shot that's being given every year is an educated guess by the CDC. it covers the viruses that the experts think will come through. this year. they guessed wrong. the flu shot is still important--but the shot covered the type "B" flu--and the one that has hit, everywhere is type "A"--the bird flu. yes, it can lead to pneumonia. don't mess with a persistent cough. go to the doc. bronchitis can become chronic. yes, lung cancer is sometimes the cause of a persistent cough, as well. so is emphysema. but dang, people--get the darned shot. people die from the flu--there have been 7 deaths in our state this year, already. and if you are already immunocompromised, with diabetes, chronic disease of any kind, you need the protection. i want to live long enough to use all this fabric, and i don't want to get more by going to someone's estate sale...

They, eventually too it off the market. And I can't remember the name of it. Tasted cherry like, but ooh, it felt good going down. I still don't like colds!!!!! Edie
    Was it Cheracol? If so, it is still available. It was a prescription cough syrup. I remember it didn't take much.
