I have been sick for about 10 days. With what started out as a cold. It still amazes me that, with all our sophisticated technology, we cannot figure out how to cure the common cold. And then for me, the common cold typically turns into a sinus infection. I am allergic to many of our modern antibiotics (including penicillin) and so I really try not to take antibiotics for sinus infections. I have an arsenal that I employ against sinus infections but it sometimes take longer than otherwise to get rid of them. I say all of this to explain why I have not yet posted this year (which of course is 26 days old). I assure you that I have several posts in the works and will post them very soon now. Stay tuned.
