FYI a cold is when your temp is below 98.6, the flu is 102 or higher.....
Thanks CCc I really feel for all of you. My normal temp is lower than average (story behind that) but it never got over 99.5 in this case. The cough was the tough part. Hope you all feel better soon.

Last year I was sick with something - not a cold, and probably not flu. I thought I had it beat after two weeks, but then relapsed and slept for two days and woke up no better. When the doctor tested me, she found that my level of vitamin D was scary low. She put me on a course of mega-high doses of D until that settled in, and by that time I was over whatever was ailing me. She said that now that everyone is highly aware of avoiding sun to avoid skin cancers, low levels of vitamin D are no longer rare. So that's something more you might want to check into.

LOL I always wondered why since I was a kid that my temp at the doc visits were always 96.8...

I have been megadosing vit D3, will have to dig up the A&D supplement. Thanks for the tip. I didn't even get my farmer's tan this summer.

After reading my multivitamin label I have to say that the store brand multi isn't very multi at all, there's like maybe eight vitamins in there, and most are B's.......

Anyone been to Kilmarnock or any of those other quaint little towns in the northern neck? We're heading there for a few days. Sort of a mid week getaway to taking advantage of the slow season (while the weather is still nice enough to go bike riding or kayaking, maybe even do a little tai chi at a local beach). Cattknap, I know you've talked about going there a few times. I would love suggestions of a place to stay. Right now we're considering the Kilmarnock Inn, but would love to hear about other good places. Also, favorite places to eat/ things to do.

Caladium - we love Kilmarnock. Gloucester, Reedville. Kilmarnock is probably the largest town in that area. It is just a fun area to drive through and stop and shop, antiquing, lunch. We have never stayed on the Northern Neck because we always stay at Colonial Williamsburg while in that area. All those towns are totally doable on a day trip from Williamsburg. Kilmarnock (the town) is a little more upscale than some of the other towns.

I believe you can get too much vitamin D, so watch out for that.

thanks. oddstray, my multi actually HAS D in it so I will go with that. In reading the ingredient list I must recommend y'all read yours to see just how multifaceted it really is. After I finish this bottle I will be looking for more coverage, perhaps store brand cheap is exactly what I'm getting.

A complete change of subject: Today's events in the Retirement Forum make me want to start a poll on who is the biggest supercilious jackass. Don't worry - I would never really do such a thing. It's just one of those naughty thoughts that come to some of us once in a while. Or am I the only one who has similar naughty thoughts?

I don't need a poll. All that counts - TO ME - is who I think is the most sanctimonious. I have no time for those folks in real life or online. WHen people are asking a serious question, I will try to give a serious answer and those who simply want to start an argument (instead of expanding on an idea or giving additional information or making a correction) are just playing games -- throwing rocks to see who scatters.

Not like any of us gets paid to be here, lol. I don't put up with crap except from clients (cause I am paid to deal with crap) but even then . . . I can always get out of the contract and walk away!!!!
