OD'd on Life Itself

So who was the smart-arse who signed me up to Spatula - Journal on Complementary Medicine?
Perhaps some American reader could SUBMIT an ARTICLE about the homeopathic use of hops in beer.

People will be pleased to learn that cilantro (coriander) "is used in the preparation of many household medicines to cure bed cold, seasonal fever, nausea, vomiting, stomach disorders and also used as a drug for indigestion, against worms, rheumatism and pain in the joints".

Belgian witbier: purely for medicinal reasons.

Now all you cilantro-haters can STFU!!!!

True story: One time when the fam and I were playing Scattergories, the category was "Reasons to Stay Home from School," and my stepmother wrote down "worms." As in, one may want to abstain from school for a day or two if one has abnormal intestinal parasites. We, uh, did not allow that answer, though we do enjoy reminiscing about her creativity.

I can assure you that both my Turkey Cutlets Cordon Bleu and my warm Spinach, Bacon and Peppers salad will benefit from a healthy (and I mean that in every sense) addition of Cilantro leaves AND stems...

Er, so are blankets.

I don't like to be insulted by my medicine any more than the next clown walking down the street does, but it doesn't have to go in the other direction & slurp me, either.

Captcha is so funny I am not sharing.

the homeopathic use of hops in beer.

I am, in fact, at this very moment drinking an example of homeopathic IPA. It is okay, if you consider it to be something else. I think there is a lesson in this for all of us.

WV is castigating me for my gruditi.
