Well, at least you are a little more humane that your co-hort Suzi who wanted to kick my bad leg!

I really appreciate everyone's wishes. Yes, I agree, I think I have had enough and it is about time I just feel better!

I grew up with a lot of books we lived a block away from the Library and read many books as in those days we did not have a million tv channels or internet etc. In those days I read all the Hardy Boys, Nancy Drew, Wizard of Oz series etc plus many, many more I loved reading as that was really all we had. On weekends I would stay up till 2 PM just reading because I just could not put the book down.

Get this if you can Emergen-C and the
Zand Insure Herbal T Inc. 2Oz - SMARTbomb.com Zand Insure Herbal these two are incredible at building up your immunity. Dh and I take have taken the vitamin c every day for years and just do not get sick we take the second one when a virus is running around for an extra boost. Trust me it's good stuff. Yogurt with live acidophilus culture is also good as it will replace the good bacteria in your system that the antibiotics have killed in your system. Try it, you will be surprised how well it works

me, too,........read all of Louisa May Alcott's books, Little Women, Little Men, Eight Cousins, Rose in Bloom, and as I got older anything and everything.........my husband is the same way as well as our daughter.......she started with the books and classics that I had on hand then moved way ahead of me........sorry I just don't relax with a dead philosopher........don't care what he had to say........but it sure helped her in debate to be well-read.....one of the best gifts that I ever bought her was a book of famous quotations.....she uses it all the time......
