Greetings to all folks near and far.
I am still trying to get used to winter coming on and here we are in the spring. I must remember to get started soon on herb seeds for the summer patio garden. This year I want to grow Lemon Verbena for tea -- it is a great stress reliever I have read. I will also grow my usual herbs, which are sage, rosemary, basil, and thyme. It is so delightful to have fresh herbs for cooking.
If you ever get a nagging toothache, try some folk remedies that have worked for others for generations. I often find that simply rinsing my mouth with warm, strong black tea works wonders to ease the ache. I do this as often as needed till I can get to my dentist. Following is my article on toothache remedies from the Folklore and Mythology site at BellaOnline.com.
Tea Bag and Other Folk Remedies for Toothache
Do those old folk remedies our grandmothers talked about really work? Putting a warm, wet tea bag on a toothache will give you the answer to one remedy.
Come visit me in my forum and let me know what works for you to ease toothache discomfort.

You can't reach old age by another man's road. My habits protect my life but they would assassinate you.
