we're ok, thanks gb. our most recent milestone was our first family sickness. first ryan got sick, then my wife and i got it. took a coupla days off to stay home, help with the baby, and get some r&r. i haven't had even a tiny cold in more than 5 years, but this one really whalloped me. i'm better now, but dw is worse today, and my boy is very congested, can't breathe so he doesn't want to eat or sleep. ah, the joys of fadderhood.

Bucky, glad you are feeling better! I hope your wife & son get better soon! Have you tried sitting in the bathroom, holding your son, with the door closed & all the hot water on? I have had to do this with my daughter since she was tiny. The steam helps break up the congestion. You can also put a bowl with a few drops of eucalyptus oil in there with you. I know it makes everyone feel worse when the little ones are sick.

Finally 'got ' one of your sigs, buckytom - the Stones.

Hope you, DW, and Ryan feel better soon. I came down with something last Saturday and am still getting over it. Missed you around here. So that was nose-blowing I kept hearing in the background?

That must be such a challenge having everyone sick in such a short period of time. I hope everyone is feeling better very soon!

OK GB, I drink iced tea all year round. Albeit, the "iced" portion often just means my cup of tea got cold. I drink tea all the time and my sense of direction is great. I can find my way to strange places with very little difficulty and if I have been somewhere once, I can find it again. My husband calls me Sulu.

Maybe I am the exception that proves the rule?

I think I am not going to count that Alix as it is not really iced tea. Maybe that is the key. I need to switch to regular tea that is not hot and then my directional sense will improve :)
