By Tuesday, my nose was running away, then I developed a deep cough, low-grade lever; much, much, much phlegm and achy, just-plain- sick feeling! I finally went to Dr. Pearson's office here in Buckhannon and saw the Nurse Practitioner, Amy Coffman (I like her!). She couldn't tell if it is viral or bacterial, but gave - me a prescription and said to use it only ifI didn't feel better the next day (Saturday). As we all should know by now, antibiotics do not help viruses, like colds and flu. I did feel better, so haven't started them, but it has been a miserable few days. I asked Mary Lou Grose Armentrout (Buckhannon), who went with me to the alumni activities, if she got sick, but she didn't. I called Rose Riffle Crutchfield (Burnsville), and she is well with no such symptoms. Then I called Bill McKnight (Buckhannon), who was also there, and, sure enough, he got the same symptoms. Wonder how many other alumni or friends got the same thing. I guess it is not Swine Flu, but it is miserable nevertheless. Be'fore going into crowds, I should have taken Airborne. I have been taking it since, along with Vitamin C, Zinc, Golden Seal, Echinacea and Pau D'Arco, (my standby immune system boosters when I need it). I am not recommending these, just telling you what I had to do. I also took Benadryl at night to dry my flowing fountain so I could sleep. I felt good enough today to work a little in my tiny gar- den, so I am surviving. At times I didn't think I would, it hurt so had to cough!

Let the milk dry, and don't wash it off. When it has disappeared, apply it again. Do this religiously, and your warts should start turning black and falling off in three or four days." I have not tried these, but I do believe that many plants we think of as useless weeds may have medici- nal value. Let me know if you try any of this. Don't forget that if you find a tick on yourself or your kids, apply a glob of liquid soap to a cotton ball. Cover the tick with the soap-soaked cotton and leave it for about 20 seconds. The tick will come out on its own and be stuck to the ball and easily re- moved.
