It's amoxicillin, which is prescription-only in the US.

Yesterday, rainy afternoon, I went to see My Old Lady with Maggie Smith. The story, while not particularly deep or memorable, was entertaining. Maggie makes the movie. Looks like we're in for a lot more boomer movies with love themes.

Don't tell anyone that; don't get it for anyone. They will prosecute you. I'm serious. They only want you to have marajuana because that will keep you docile.

I remember that quake! We were watching the game.

We've had three quakes up here in the last twenty years.

oddstray, congratulations! We will celebrate!

If y'all celebrate, enjoy! We, ourselves, are wasting no time. On November 7th we will be packing (or possibly already en route) for a week-long photography trip to Monument Valley.

I'm certainly still old...older, I fact, than when I adopted the name but I don't think "cold" applies anymore.
It didn't again today but even though the temperature is the same as yesterday there is a lovely breeze so I am able to do without the AC.
Old_Florida?

Thanks for the answer. I have heard of amoxicillin going back many years in connection with dental work.

For pets it goes by the name Clavamox.

AUGMENTIN is an oral antibacterial combination consisting of amoxicillin and the beta-lactamase inhibitor, clavulanate potassium (the potassium salt of clavulanic acid).

It's sold legally for use in fish tanks, but it's pharmaceutical grade safe for humans. I keep it around for us and the cats and I get it for my neighbors dogs.

HiW, I got in on ebay so they can prosecute them if they want to, but they can't because it's legal. She also had her own website to order if you don't like ebay. I've been buying amoxicillin from her for years but she just got the Augmentin in and I needed it for DH.

Sorry. Your pst made it sound as if you were bringing it from Canada. I know that people regularly smuggle epipens (sp.?) as well.

Yes, I've been here before, but just to snorkel. (For those who don't know, Belize is home to the second largest barrier reef in the world. Coincidentally, we'll be heading to Australia in a couple of months and plan to snorkel off the Great Barrier Reef
while visiting Cairns.)

My visit to Belize earlier this week was just a one day stop as part of a week-long cruise. The following day we were in Roatan, Honduras, and I spent a good part of the day zip lining. It was a fun experience, but I'm not sure I'll do it again unless it's above some fabulous scenery. This was just so-so.

Speaking of the cruise...I spent most evenings at the craps table in the casino (who would have guessed, lol), and on the last night, the casino manager invited my wife and me to take a free cruise with his compliments anytime in the next few months. Unfortunately, with all of our already-scheduled upcoming travel, it may be hard to squeeze in another trip.

But we'll definitely try, lol!

It's time for winter eats. This morning I had waffles with butter and about a 50/50 mixture of Vermont maple and Maine blueberry syrups. I probably won't be all that hungry tonight so I'll eat something ordinary. Tomorrow I plan to make moussaka; it will be my first time. I have recipes using lamb, beef, pork, and combinations thereof. For my first time I'll use pork to show my support for Greek independence from the Porte. How can I go wrong with pork, potato, eggplant, and bechamel sauce all cooked separately then layered and baked?

As a chicken daddy again I've been thinking of Thanksgiving. I once had a really tasty lentil loaf, but most vegan recipes have a bad tendency to use whole wheat flour, brown rice, and similar. I know that I can do better so I'm working on a dinner of baked lentil loaf, stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, and of course, Ocean Spray canned cranberry sauce. Desert will be my famous fruit cake. In fact, I just opened the tins and poured more cognac on them. Just to be sure, I'll fix a lentil loaf before Thanksgiving as a test.

I suspect many millions who had planned to travel will be spending Thanksgiving at home because of ebola so it's time to start buying goodies. It's also time to fill any gaps in your supplies. I recall that in the '57 epidemic of Asian flu there were many breakdowns in the supply chain because so many people were out sick.
