    Purpose please. Is this a game ... or art ... or something you do ... like a puzzle?
    It's in the Sims.

    It's part of a "project" I am working on. One that includes many different characters and challenges like this.

    During the maze construction, I even confused myself at one point

    But it's legit and it is solveable. So that's good. I hope it's the only way out. The start is on the bottom there. The ending is that path on the right.

    Sorry you're not feeling well, Pikachu. Most viruses have a 2-3 day incubation period between exposure and symptoms appearing, so you very well may have picked up something on Saturday. But it's pretty hard to avoid cold and flu germs if you're around other people as viruses are usually contagious a day before symptoms appear.
    it.

    Fanny Mare, I hadn't heard about oil of oregano either. Will look for it the next time I'm out.

    I STILL say that you should be using the neti pot. I'll stand by that until the ends of time. It is a smart thing to use anytime you have been in a group of people....a party, on a plane, etc. The sore throat is, in all likelihood from a post nasal drip that went on during your sleep hours. It will open up your stuffy head.

    Interesting how you say that you don't like when people come in sick and then YOU DO EXACTLY THAT. You didn't "catch" an allergy from the offensive woman. The good part about the neti is that you can rinse out your passages and can do it as many times/day that you feel like you need to since it is only saline and not a guesswork medicinal. It will probably let you sleep like a baby.

    I hardly ever get sick and I work at a pharmacy, so I'm exposed to a lot of sickness. But I've apparently built up some immunities because I don't catch much. I do saline nasal rinses, use hand sanitizer when needed, wash my hands often, and most important... keep my hands away from my face.

    I wish people would cough into their hands, or a tissue. At one time we always carried a handkerchief with us - but a tissue would suffice.

    Kip, at the first sign of the sniffles, take Oil of Oregano !! you wont be sorry I also use the neti pot.

    ICK. I don't want people coughing into their hands. You TOUCH things (and other people) with your hands! Cough AND sneeze into your forearm or your shoulder The so-called "Cold Shoulder") and not into your hands.

    You finally did the neti pot!!! Weren't you the one who was hesitant to try it?? I am so proud of you! And the more you use it, the better it gets.

    No, I have used one for years. Wasn't that Debb who hadn't tried it??

    Re: FORT Koffee Klatch

    I was hesitant to use the neti, but did so recently because my ears were plugged up and the doctor said it would help (along with the prednisone he gave me). It wasn't nearly as horrible as I thought it would be, and I won't hesitate to use it again during allergy season if I need it.

    Triple ICK. It drives me crazy because people instinctively sneeze into their hand(s) and then don't pay any attention to HOW they wash and HOW LONG they wash. Most people neglect to thoroughly wash their hands and forearms.

    OH ... and reminder again ... get your flu shots folks.
