Which thread? The cheese? I put a note in his post to include shipping when comparing. I'm hoping that will stop some of the replies.

Got it.

Tap water is ok. There were a couple cases of an amoebic infection in LA (the state), when people used untreated water, IIRC. If you're concerned, boil the water first and then let it cool before use. : )

Are you sure you don't have cough variant asthma?

And Bowtie is correct, in that you probably do have some irritative drainage.

Seems like this time every year I come down with an upper respiratory infection... prob all the little children "sharing" their lovely germs with me!! I thought I was better today.. but end still woke up with the horrible cough... Might have to break down and go in to see my Dr. thanks!

I thought I could still defend myself (since the post before her's was saying I was the troll).

Well, I like the fact that the mods dont just completely edit out posts. They let the community police itself for the most part and only come in when things need real help. Heavy censoring is the quickest way to kill the community atmosphere here. I think we can all put on our patient hats and deal with the slow folks who are still catching up to the current WW modus operandi. In a few months they should all come around.

I've got too much inventory, too little storage space and need some help on the consumption side.

My storage locker manager just called and expanded me into a vacant locker, my forth, as there were too many boxes cluttering the isle.

Do I hear any interest for a San Diego event?

Looking at your CT, you are almost in Sparky territory. You both should just take a month off work and make drinking your full-time job.

I only get four days off for the holiday. Next Friday isn't an official holiday, but I had some vacation time so I figured why not.

Haven't decided what to do yet.

well, my order from Last Bottle showed up today..... good thing it is in a Styrofoam box.... that way I can store it in my closet until I have room in my wine fridge!! I thought I had picked out 12 bottles.. but, I guess, not... only 11!! between this order and the one from WTSO, I have no more room... but is that stopping me? nope... now I have to explain to hubby why in 1 week 30 bottles of wine showed up!!! I did plan this all out when I ordered them in the summer... Gave different shipping dates, so they all didn't show up at once. The weather didn't cooperate (to Hot) so I changed the shipping dates (twice) and as luck would have it, they all showed up the same week.... oh well, as my family says, I'm not addicted to drinking wine, I'm addicted to buying wine!! Ha Ha ha!!Happy Friday!!
