Ooops, pac...haha...yeah, that's gonna be a spicy sauce. Sounds good though, especially with the sour cream to mellow it out a little bit. Maybe.

Could it be from some type of med you are currently on? My Mom had been on some type of heart medication that caused her to cough all the time. I don't remember what it was since this was back in the 1990s. Also, when a previous doctor had switched me from cozaar to lisinopril I developed a dry cough. I would have problems not coughing when I was singing in church choir! I asked one of the other members, who just so happened to be a pharmacist at the local drug store, if there was something that would help with sinus drainage. He got around to asking me if I took any meds regularly. When I mentioned the lisinopril he asked if I took a daily aspirin. When I told him yes he suggested I take it about 10 minutes before the lisinopril because for some odd reason it stops the cough. It worked for me! If you are on any daily meds, you might want to check to see if any of them might cause your cough.

I was tempted to add more sour cream, but after it was in the fajitas with all the veggies the sauce was tamed.

Andy, I learned when I first moved here not to park under the pine trees for shade. I always wondered how the dealer cleaned all the sap spots off a vehicle I had traded in. It was loaded with tiny sap specks all over, even the windshield. I couldn't imagine someone having to individually attack each spot.

Good to know re: WD40--buy that in gallon jugs, so always have that in the shop.

I wouldn't have been able to take the Darvocet long term, and certainly not for a cough. I would have had to keep having surgeries for the doctor to keep prescribing them, or buy them on the street corner. I have always wondered what the ingredient was that worked for me.

We have two assigned parking slots in front of our condo. That's the only option.

Removing petrified pitch is MUCH harder. Rubbing alcohol doesn't do it.

We have eliminated ace inhibitors that are the cough culprits, and I still coughed. Actually, this started before I was on any meds....back before I started to have health issues. Sometimes Tylenol will help when the coughing gets exceptionally bad. I get some really dirty looks when in a restaurant around flu season. People have asked to be moved to another seat. I don't know if changing when I take my aspirin would help. I guess it's worth a try.

What I meant was that if a drug works for people in general, for what it is prescribed for (and if there are positive side effects all the better), it is frustrating when it is pulled. Unless of course there are enough adverse reactions to justify it. I had a perfectly good long term medication pulled and when my doctor investigated it was because there was one death - versus thousands of success stories.

When a drug gets old enough to become generic, the company that created it loses a lot of revenue because the price drops and no one wants the brand name any more. They create a new drug that is patent protected and start the cycle again.
