Joan, how nice to hear you got the heat again on. Hopefully your hub is going to be OK.

That's the reason I drink only beer.

We'll get there and it's our 34th Wedding Anniversary on Friday but I don't think there will be much celebrating done.
Joan,
When I was a kid my Mom boiled some water, put Vicks Vapo Rub in the hot water, stirred it and then put a towel over my head like a tent. I sat in a chair with the hood over my head and breathed in the vapor from the hot mixture.
Sure cleared my head and lungs up. Might want to give this a try.

I don't think he'd be able to do that Dennis, he can't even use a Vick's Inhaler because of the medications he's on plus he can't breathe through his nose, thanks for the suggestion though.

Who had believed they already had Vicks then, late 19th century?

Vicks VapoRub

History
In 1890, pharmacist Lunsford Richardson took over the retail drug business of his brother-in-law Dr. Joshua Vick, of Selma, Greensboro, North Carolina.[1] After Dr. Joshua Vick saw an ad for Vick's Seeds, Lunsford Richardson began marketing Vick’s Family Remedies.[1] The basic ingredients of the range included Castor oil, liniment, 'dead shot' vermifuge.[1] The most popular remedy was Croup and Pneumonia Salve, which was first compounded in 1891, in Greensboro. It was introduced in 1905 with the name Vick's Magic Croup Salve and rebranded as VapoRub in 1912 at the instigation of Smith Richardson, Lunsford's oldest son[1] ; Smith had gained valuable sales and marketing experience while working for a period in New York and Massachusetts after attending college. Smith Richardson assumed the presidency of the company in 1919 upon his father's death.

If you bend over I will show you this procedure works on the internal parts of your brain.
