Thanks to everyone who commented last week.
Six commenters had no strange remedies to share. I was aware of the use of aloe for cuts, Vicks on the feet for coughs and the pillow between the knees (I sleep with a small pillow under one knee). I had not heard of the sugar to clot blood, the tea tree oil to fight off fleas and the spaghetti with marinara sauce for upset stomach. I might try those sometime.
The Winner from SBB #276 comments is: #10, Becky who can make a GC choice if international or book choice from the Updated ARC/Review titles or (not yet updated) Love titles - all linked near the end of the post. [I'm hoping to update the book choices - maybe the beginning of next year, lol.] Please let me know your choice by completing the WINNER FORM.
(One Question.)Becky asks: Do you have a favorite house plant that you love to grow??
I have always loved to grow African Violets. At one time I had over 32 violet plants and a dozen varieties. They are my favorite even though I only have one right now. I also have several Christmas cactus that are growing well. One other house plant that I light to grow is orchids -- after all I do live in Florida!
Thanks to those who are sending in Questions. DON'T BE SHY! Surely everyone has a Q or two you'd like to ask. Input suggestions in this Suggested Question Form. At the end of each month I draw from the suggestions I used during the month and that person will get a book choice or GC. I thank everyone for submitting questions. Thanks for sending in questions! The supply of questions is dwindling so share some if you think of any -- even if they are duplicates I'll weed through or try to modify.
Your turn to share: Becky asks: Do you have a favorite house plant that you love to grow??
SBB Comment Winners can choose a selection from the Valentine and "Love" books or the February 2015 Newly Updated ARC/Review List. (My daughter pulled several of the Christmas titles to give with gift bags we made up for the nursing homes. One of these days I will get together a new box of Christmas titles.)
a) Must be a follower.
b) Share a comment on the question above.
Open internationally and an international winner may get a smaller book or a $5.00 GC if I decide the mailing is too much.
I will pick a Comment winner from all comments made through Saturday November 12, 2016 at 5 PM central.
