I have been "blessed" with a cold that came on last night. So now I am awake jacked up on cold medicine telling you people of my condition. Looks like I will be laying into the eggnog a little early this year. Some people say you need to feed a cold, some say you need to starve it; I for one believe you need to drowned a cold. Cheers!

Yes... yo need to drown it. But not wth egg nog. The lactic acid will increase your mucous and add to the misery. Try drowning it with a double Maker's Mark instead. Last year at Christmas I was in the hospital nearly deceased from pneumonia.

I happen to have some Maker's in the cabinet. I think I will wait a couple hours though... Or at least until the sun comes up......... Is it noon where you're at??????

Nope... 10 till 9a.m. EST. Time of day restrictions for smooth bourbon are suspended in a time of illness.

I seem to be a "little" better today. Whisky works as well as any cold medication. BenDover is right about eggnog, milk products. Try squeezing lemon juice in water every 2-3 hrs and drink that. Rest when you can.

Merry Christmas all, Hey here's a suggestion from Me for You. I too usually suffer with the "Fall into Winter cold" and the last few years I go from cold to bronchitis to Pneumonia virtually over night. >>FUN!!<< This year I tried a product called ZICAM. It is a gelled nasal spray. At the first hint of the cold coming on, I bought the Zicam ($10, not cheap) and used it as directed. The result was a one and one half day cold. Done, gone, finished. others in My office with the same cold have had it as long as 2 weeks. Your mileage may vary. Ho!,Ho!,Ho! [<|:d>] No!, Not You honey! Tall Shadow
