Good morning everyone.


I`m glad you understood my post.

Tea Granny

I know of people who set out bowls of onions to help rid them of their colds.

My mother inlaw wrapped onions in a cloth and put it on my baby`s chest,
it helped.

A Thought About my Aunt

Years ago, my sister`s new born baby had a terrible cold and had trouble breathing,
So my aunt sucked the snot out of her nose, that really helped.

Morning Folks...

Had some computer problems yesterday after I got home, couldn't get and stay on for some reason...

Anyways a nice sunny but kinda cool day out here this morning. Still no sign of the lake breaking up although the Goulais has and was flowing pretty good yesterday under the bridge.

Tea Granny...
I have always found hot milk and rum is a good way to ease a cold... doesn;t cure it but makes it a happy one....

You all have a great day out there...

Celeste.. ha ha ha... You do have a way with words :) I hope your Aunt used a syringe on the Babys nose... made me laugh, but glad it worked......
irishfey 4/23/2014 11:19:27 AM Report

Mallet.. Thank you for the reminder of .. " hot milk and rum" Years back i had a cold or couldn"t sleep or something and my Dad told me to make this drink. I did, and sipped on it as i was going up the stairs. By the time i got to the top i was ready for a good sleep ,lol... hmmmm , maby i"ll try it again, can"t hurt..... My Hubby says to have a drink of brandy, which do you think is best??

It was late in the night,
My sister was going to take the baby to the Hospital,
My aunt said, there`s no need for that,
So, no syringe, the baby was fine after that.
mallet 4/23/2014 12:36:03 PM Report


That was a cure that has been used in my family for many years.. Of course we cannot get the same rum here most of the time, but some places do have the "Lemon Heart", but normally carry the "Lambs Navy Rum"... It is my preference, Brandy is fine but in my opinion it has to be warmed to about 30C to give the best results... My favourite rum drink is "Rum and Pep" that is pepermint cordial and I have not seen it in this country i have to get mine from family who visit or if we go to the UK. Does nothing for diabetics thro!!!

Celeste I meant no offence, it just sounded funny. Good thing your Aunt was there and all was fine. I just came back from a walk with Buddy.. It"s BEAUTIFUL outside!! We even went an extra block! After his grooming he will be ready for a nap, me too, but i"m going to go out and pick up some twigs off the front lawn. Baby steps, but it will get me out.... Thanks Mallet, I"ll try and look for those brands of rum.... later
celeste5 4/23/2014 1:04:47 PM Report


I wasn`t offended, it was gross,
but it worked and it is funny now.

Good afternoon, I guess the Blue room is back to the usual crap. Harper haters and BS'er according to some.
Nice day again a little wind out here,perfect for cutting wood.
celeste5 4/23/2014 2:49:13 PM Report


Where have you been?
Keeping busy.
Yes, I see the other room is back to normal,
I bet some posters get a natural high being negative.
bounder 4/23/2014 3:03:01 PM Report

Celest5 outside cutting wood for next 2 years, figured why wait for good weather, do it now and relax during the nice weather if it shows up.
irishfey 4/23/2014 3:10:19 PM Report

Back from the Groomers. I think Buddy lost a lb. of fur ,lol... Naptime for us now, i will do more outside later, still early yet........
Pink Peony 4/23/2014 3:12:31 PM Report

mallet, have you tried the Just British store on Queen St. for the peppermint cordial? If they don't have it, they may be able to get it in for you.
celeste5 4/23/2014 3:13:15 PM Report

I should've said some people get a natural high bickering.
mallet 4/23/2014 3:33:38 PM Report

Pink Peony..

No, I have not tried them lately, I am not sure where they are now I thought they used to be up at the Wellington mall at one time, and they did not have a lot of stuff that we missed to be honest... maybe they were just starting out. Next time I am in town I will have to see if I can find them... Where on Queen are they???

Pink Peony 4/23/2014 4:03:23 PM Report

mallet, it says 508 Queen St. East on their FB page. Looks like it's between Spring and Brock.
mallet 4/23/2014 4:49:24 PM Report

Pink Peony

Thanks I will look it up next time in town...
irishfey 4/23/2014 8:09:56 PM Report

irishfey 4/23/2014 8:29:44 PM Report
