Were your family use any 'home remedies' to cure ailments you had? Were they influenced by Old Wives Tales? Most families have their 'cur-it-all' remedies and looking back on them some are great and others are just funny. If we had a cold or sore throat my mom was a believer that Vicks Rub would cure it all. I would be to stuffed up I could not breathe so she had dad slather my neck/upper chest area with that sticky goo, then wrap a wool sock around my neck secured with a safety pin and top it all with one of daddy's old t-shirts. I still do love the smell of Vicks and it does help some with the stuffiness but for me wearing and snuggling one of dad's shirts was what cured me...lol
your family??? Any remedies?

If you ask what is the single most important key to longevity, I would have to say it is avoiding worry, stress and tension. And if you didn't ask me, I'd still have to say it.
