    Someone mentioned chewing a regular aspirin when you have a tickle in your
    throat that you can't get rid of too, it does seem to work. I agree that
    they're a bit bitter, but not terrible like some pills are.

    Plain old regular yogurt is a probiotic, if his has live bacteria that
    is thought to promote a well balanced digestive system. Yogurt and
    acidophilus milk, which came out in the 70s, were the first probiotic
    products that I know of. Having milk with live acidophilus bacteria in
    it helps folks that are lactose intolerant. Unfortunately, the milk
    industry didn't want to acknowledge the fact that the majority of black
    and Asian folks had trouble digesting milk so they never said a word
    about what the rational is for having live acidophilus bacteria in milk.
    That's the breaks.

    Children can pretty much ALWAYS open the childproof lids. It's the adults
    who can't.

    It probably was. Why else would they come up with that odd price?

    Again, I remember as a young kid (4th grade or less) (1963 or less), we
    lived in the Annapolis, MD area and our first McDonalds restaurant had on
    their sign, "Over 1 million sold." At the time that I remember small fries
    cost 12 cents and hamburgers were 15 cents. Cheeseburgers probably were 17s
    cent then.

    I never bought the cheeseburgers though. I was spending my allowance and
    hamburgers were cheaper. I also loved comic books back then (at 12 cents
    each) and they must have won out lots of times because I have a fairly large
    collection still in my closet.

    Sheldon,

    Of course flipping cards was a school bus stop thing!1!

    I probably lost a Donald Trump fortune. LOL!
