Queen Victoria was prescribed cocaine as a cure for her colds. Then again it was by the same doctor that told Victoria it was quite possible for a virgin to get pregnant!
Best cold cure I know is fresh lemon, fresh lime, freshly ground ginger and honey all mixed together and granny would tell me to gargle a mix of TCP and water!
It is estimated that adults will suffer two to three colds per year, while children, whose immune systems are still learning to fight cold viruses, can suffer two to nine colds annually.
Katy leads the Village In Piccadilly walk on Mondays.
Katy, aka Bloodline, is our juv lead. She's young, gifted and beautiful. Let alone to the manner born.
