  • I got a code

    I'm fighting some nasty virus that has my nose running the triathalon and my throat so sore I don't want to breathe. Amazing how something like this sucks the work ethic right out of you.

    Anyway, apologies if some of my posts are a bit abrupt for the past/next couple of days.

    It could be worse...

    During a recent trip to Mexico it wasn't "my nose" running a triathalon nor my throat that was sore. Though you're feeling lousy, bull-eeve me it could be much, much worse.

    In any event get better fast! A chipper Doug is a lot better than a feeling-puny-Doug any day!

    Take care...

      Hope you feel better. For the common cold I use that Zicam when I first feel it starting and I haven't had a cold in about a year now. I've had the starts of them but they never get past the sore throat stage. Even if I take it late it seems to lessen it greatly. If it's something other than a cold or flu though I don't think it will work.

        Try some of Big Al's winter warmer ...make it REALLY spicy and your cold will be gone in no time! (other possible side effects may occur )

          viruses to die for

          There was something particularly insidious this year in Oregon. I was sick most of feb and Mar., and still have a runny nose. I lost my voice for part of the episode too.
          The damn cat didn't know what to think of me.

                I hate to think what the inside of your turban must look like, Greg2.

                    She's pissed at me now, as I put drops in her ears and she hates it.

                      Hey Arura! (about travel in Viet Nam)
                      by jeaniesa
                      Hi Arura,

                      I thought I'd move the discussion of VN travel over here so that we don't clutter up the Critiques thread with off-topic discussion. Anything goes over here in Salon though!

                      Wow - 5 weeks to see VN! That sounds about right. I brought my mother with me in...

                      Wild fires
                      by jeaniesa
                      While I'm not in any danger with existing fires, having been near enough to one two years ago to pack my car with irreplacables (i.e., photos and computer), the wild fires raging in CO right now have me on edge.

                      The latest news on the fire near Denver is that it's 10 miles from the SW...

                      Any mountain bikers?
                      by G. Couch
                      My wife has convinced me to go mountain biking with her. (she just finished a class and loves it.) ...She says it will be good exercise and a good thing for us to do together. Is she just trying to get me killed? Is this a real sport like ping-pong or golf...or should I go ahead and take out a life...

                      Study and Practice Time
                      by thomasgeorge
                      On an average, how much time do you set aside each day for just study/practice and what would your advice be to an Individual as to the amount of time to devote to the aforementioned on a daily basis. How importiantly do you rate a regular schedual of study/practice?......Tom

                      Carpal tunnel syndrome

                      Hi Folks,

                      As common as carpal tunnel syndrome is, I expect there are some of you bothered by it. I've had it for a few years, and there have been times at night when it really got bad. But if I watch the type of work I'm doing, it isn't that bad. The wrist supports help, but if I do the...
