Your Mother Wears Army Boots, and I Smell of...
Bleah. I'm sick.
But at least it's not the flu.*
Elderberry extract seems to be the new new thing for dealing with viruses. I bought some of this Sambu Guard stuff at the Chapel Hill EarthFare.**
Of note, the Sambu Guard tastes pretty decent -- a very rich juiciness that reminds me of the pomegranate juices now on sale almost everywhere.
It's a bad time to be an oxidant, I'd say. Everybody's against them.
In any case, it's fingers crossed for me that this cold passes quickly!
*I spent 90 minutes and some cash to confirm that, this afternoon, at the clinic. And thank goodness, too -- -- I'm hosting my mom's 75th birthday party on Saturday and I need to be human.
**no longer open 24 hours a day. Now open only to midnight. Which makes a lot of sense.
Aww! Hope you feel better, soon. Another friend of mine has a cold, too. Here's her blog entry of her home remedy: http://www.heathbar.org/weblog/pivot/entry.php?id=351

My grandma used to make that! It's yummy. I'm also a big believer in the power of a hot toddy, I think basically because it makes you sleep. Cheap whisky, a spoonful of sugar, some lemon juice and some hot water. I hope you recover in time for your mom's party!
