    Zac really does look good, Unk. Thanks for the update, I often think about him when interacting with sick little ones on the job. My best wishes and prayers for him.

    Well this is a new one. I popped out to the UPS tracking site to check the status of an order I placed recently. I am used to the typical entries saying things like "arrival scan", "departure scan", "out for delivery". But today the most recent status says.....

    HODGKINS,
    IL, US 05/28/2009 1:00 P.M. TRAIN DERAILMENT

    Now I REALLY don't know when to expect my package!!!

    yikes. I had that show up once also -in that case it only added a day or 2. But if it is destroyed, it has to start all over again.

    Lol!! Wow... I've never seen a status like that either. Hopefully it gets to you in one piece. I didn't even know they used trains to ship mail anymore.

    Wow! That's a first. Well, yesterday in the morning, i woke up with a horrible stomach ache. We didn't have any pink stuff or other stuff for tummy troubles so i improvised. I drank a little lemon juice for a good 5 minutes and my stomach was feeling better. Then i got this pain in my stomach that made me want to walk around until i ended up vomiting. Several times, now that i recall. My stomach settled and i felt better. Any recommendations on what to have on hand in the future?

    I've heard that if you don't have some pepto bismol bananas are good for helping to settle down your stomach. That or mix a teaspoon of baking soda with water and drink the whole thing. It tastes like crap but takes away any stomach pain almost instantly.

    even better, candied ginger slices-chew up and swallow, or ginger root capsules. It REALLY works on nausea, and I swear by it as without my ginger I get seasick nowadays, something that never used to bother me.

    Baking soda aka bicarbonate of soda is the prime component of Alka Seltzer. Baking soda is also a lot cheaper than alka seltzer. It's probably the most common remedy for upset stomach, etc.
    I tend to get IBS and I try to keep club soda on hand. The carbonation is what takes the bloating feeling away.
