Six months without!

My partner and I have now gone six months without television, and guess what?  Life goes on.
We watch DVDs, of which we have a good collection, and that's it.  News and weather are available on the Internet for free.

Every time I'm exposed to television in someone else's house, I can't help but notice that the programming seems to have sunk well below the level of the lowest common denominator.  And that's pretty darn low.

Weeks go by without a set being turned on in our house, although we sometimes have a 'movie night'.

A cure that is definitely NOT worse than the disease!

My maternal grandmother suffered from full-blown asthma, and that's not a fun thing to have.  I witnessed her having a full-scale attack when I was sixteen, and it scared the crap out of me.

Nobody in my generation inherited the asthma from her, but many of us do have hay fever/allergy problems to one degree or another.  When you've experiencing a total hay fever attack, your sinuses can produce more snot than you can say grace over.  And they can fill up your chest overnight.  After that comes bronchitis, and the racking often dry coughs it produces.

Being allergic to codeine, I can't take the strong cough syrups to stop the coughing and bronchial spasms, but that's okay.  Years ago, I discovered a much better remedy:  Harvey's Bristol Cream Sherry. 

One sip of Harvey's warms those bronchial tubes immediately, and the spasms stop.  I kid you not.  Almost any liqueur, Drambuie, for example, will do the same thing, but I like Harvey's better.

So, here's to the best damn specific for bronchial coughs ever invented.



Good one
