It's here

The cold I've been expecting to hit me since I arrived in NYC is finally here. Nothing major, just a cloudy head, stuffy yet runny nose... You know the drill. Boo.

Fortunately I don't have any auditions this week.

Guess I'll take a nap while my files are transferring / backing up onto my new external hard drive...

I have a remedy that will help...it will sound gross, but as a fellow singer...IT WORKS.

My babysitter would make me gargle with 50/50 water and peroxide. Take the same 50/50 solution and use a baby aspirator (the thingy used to get mucus out of a baby's nose when they are sick.) and squirt it up my nose. When you squirt it up your nose...tilt your head back until you can feel the liquid on your soft palate...when that happens lean your head foward and blow your nose. You might lose your sense of taste and smell for a day, but it sure beats having the sickies!!!

I hope you feel better.

try a netti pot. warm water (to the touch) with salt (salty to the taste) and rinse out those sinuses - that and boil ginger root in water to cover with lots of lemons and drink with lots of honey to soothe your throat and clear the gunk out.

hope you feel better soon !

WElcome to my world, ACB. Unfortunately, the met council auditions for me are this Saturday. We'll certainly see, won't we.

Netti pot, 'course. Love the idea of drinking ginger root & lemons & honey, too.

(I like to make my favorite herbal tea & put the whole pot on the dining room table with a hot pad under it, put my face near & throw a towel over my head for a 10-15 minute sinus steam. Grandma's remedy. Ginger/lemon infusion would work too. Only thing is, do *not* drink it afterwards!)

BTW that same 50/50 water & peroxide solution is a great (& cheap) teeth whitener! Swish for 30 seconds before brushing.

Melissa, what's "umcka"? (looks like this here word verification thing I have to type in!)

umcka is an herbal thing -- made from some South African plant and used for centuries by people in the Zulu culture. You can find it in most drugstores now. It comes in little bottles with a dropper. It's awesome. :)
