    Heavy cold?

    Gordon bleedin` Bennet!,Am i rough today?

    It seems old waffy is off work today partly due to a lack of work and the rest due to this god-awful heavy raid on by these cold germs!

    Anyone else had a dose of this `man-flu` lately?
    Im stuffing myself with out of date items found deep in the medical box,so i may be experiencing some ceiling and floor wobbles later?

    Bad headache,plenty of snots,the whole works im afraid!

    Any tips would be helpful to defeat this please?
    Waff is never usually ill,but this one has clubbed me good and proper!

    best

    waff (breaks into pitiful coughing fit)

    Unhappy Remedy

    Hi Waff I have just started to come out of it today and started it on Sunday, having invested shares in Kleenex UK and also the local chemists !
    What a pig this one was not quite Flu but very heavy indeed!
    My full sympathies Waff but cheer up with luck it will clear in three days time!
    Bed with plenty to drink to flush it out (no, not your usual brand of medicinal tot !) Tea, water etc and just give up on doing anything for a while and rest.

    Keep the puter switched on so you dont miss anything here

    Hope you have a speedy recovery mate !

    Chris

    Cheers Chris,same to you mate.

    I was thinking about opening this 25 year old whiskey( Lagavulin),i was given it a few years ago as a gift and have been waiting for the day to crack it open.
    Will be a good lad though and stay off the grog then.

    Thumbs up good recovery, Paul!

    against your snotty nose make a nose-rinse with well tempered (slightly warmed) salt water. do not snort too often in your handkerchief, try to remove the evil backward (so your nose-caves will have profit).
    aginst a bad throat I would have throat-rinse with a Bowmore Islay Malt
    (12 years are enough, he's much smoother than most of the other Malt's).

    Hmmm i think it will also work with some good Vodka (wodka) and some good hot sauce, what do you think Waff?

    Ahahah!! Those my friend,were happy days at Beltring!

    I have a little bit of that `Madame Jeannettes` nuclear sauce you gave me so i will try some with my food tonight.
    If that doesn`t melt my head then nothing will!

    Thank you for the advice Dr Ben!

    cheers

    What you need is to inhale ammonia years ago when i was a printed circuit engineer anybody who had a cold we got to stand behind my etching machine it worked wonders , very quick acting . it,s similar to smelling salts used in victorian times ,and no im not that old
