:caf  Rancher, glad that you dodged the bullet with that last storm.  You mention your wife and the heat - the Princess is too hot in the summer and too cold in the winter.  I think that her thermostat broke in menopause.

 

Kaj, mothers worry - it's their job.  We have 2 grand daughters adopted from China.  A trip there probably looms somewhere in the future.

It's been crazy here. We had a Thanksgiving dinner already at our youngest daughters. It was good seeing her and the family, but rushed. Tiss the season I guess. She had great news for us and her family. She got a new position, no more night shifts and weekends off except for emergencies.

 

Our other daughter also had good/bad news for us. The good part, she is going to China to play over the holiday. Great experience for her. Bad news, the better half (the "mom") is starting to "stress".

 

@rancher hicks - I hope your and your better half get well soon. You every use that Vick's rub? I do, but I hate to say, the genetic just doesn't cut the congestion.

 

We had to eat out at the beginning of the month. I came home with food poisoning. Close to 4 days of fasting. Guts haven't been to same since.

 

Coffee's getting cold.

 

Enjoy the day

 

Kaj

 

Yes I have vicks or the generic. DW always buys the generic.  I've been sniffing the jar like a druggie.  Not much help though. 

 

It is so nice outside I have got to do stuff sick or otherwise.

I have discovered that when desperate to breathe because of sinus congestion, take the Vick's vapo rub and put a little bit on both sides of the bridge of your nose. You can even extend it out a little on either side under your eye sockets. I tend to only do this at night when I am desperate for sleep because it will burn your eyes. Once you close your eyes to sleep though, it works wonders in helping you breathe.

One thing I like to do is take a cup of boiling water, mix in a spoonful of the Vicks in it, and put a towel over your head while breathing in the fumes from the cup. Helps open up the airways.

Thanks for that. I was wondering but not sure it would work.  I have these tablets for in the shower but they don't work all that much.
