    I've been using this for some time now too. Very well done!
  2. This is exactly why they have palette cleansings at wine and beer tastings.
  3. Dammit Lee. you beat me to it. The other way to go with that is "Do you put a lime in your Coronavirus?" or "Do you catch coronavirus from watching a solar eclipse?
  4. I heard that Charlie has been banned from playing pipe organ music on his system. When the low notes hit, the whole state of Florida browns out.
  5. During middle school and high school, my best friends dad was also my doctor. He was & still is a great guy. I recall a time when his sons & I were shooting pool in their basement, and he came down to visit with us. I said, "Doc, I feel a cold coming on, should I come in and get a shot of penicillin?" He said, "Well, you can come in a get a shot. It will cost you $15 for the office call, $3 for the shot, and you'll be good to go in about 7 days. Or, you can drink lots of water, get plenty of rest, and you'll be good to go in about a week. It's up to you."
  6. Happy Birthday Ed! I hope you have a great day!

  9. In a similar vein, around 2005, I decided I wanted to compete in bodybuilding again. In my previous experience, I was too lean @ 190lbs and 6' tall. The competition that I was shooting to be ready for was about a year away, so that gave me time to get my weight up to about 240, so I could lean down to about 220. I started eating at least 1lb of red meat every day, and on weekends 2-3 lbs of red meat. Of course it was no surprise to me that my cholesterol jumped to 300+ when I had my physical. My doctor had a script for Lipitor waiting for me when I came in. He first lectured my about my 20lb weight gain--I was up to around 220, and then he told me he had a script for Lipitor for me. I started laughing, and he said there was nothing funny about a 20 lb weight gain, and 100+ increase in cholesterol. My reply was that he's correct, but what I find funny is that a guy with a 40" inch waist is lecturing someone with a 32" waist, who is obviously much more fit than he is about weight & cholesterol. I also told him that I would not be filling that script because I was more afraid of anti-statin drugs that I am of high cholesterol. I then told him why my weight & cholesterol had increased like they had, and that I would forego my plan of competitive bodybuilding. I would decrease my red meat to about a lb per week, and replace it with fish & chicken. I would also double my oatmeal consumption, and my weight/cholesterol problem would go away. He said not possible, and I agreed to come back in 3 months for repeat blood work. I came back in four months, and my weight was down 10 lbs, and my cholesterol was 210. My doctor was astonished, said if he hadn't seen it, he wouldn't have believed it possible. I have always believed that many of our ailments can be handled with proper diet and of course, exercise. We have the power to make our bodies do incredible things with the right fuel and training. That includes curing many of our ailments.
  10. A newly-discovered part of our immune system could be harnessed to treat all cancers, say scientists. The Cardiff University team discovered a method of killing prostate, breast, lung and other cancers in lab tests. https://www.bbc.com/news/health-51182451

  14. Thank you all for the birthday wishes. It was a calm non-event day, just like a cranky old biker likes it.
