Odds and Ends
First Cold of Season
I am suffering through my first cold of the season and being diabetic, I have to be careful about what I take for it. Regarding cough drops, I would like to know whatever happened to Victor's cough drops. I remember taking them about 30 years ago, and they were about the strongest cough drops known to man. About right now, I wish I could find some of those.
Another thought that went through my head this evening regarding cough drops concerns the Ricola mystery cougher. This is the person who comes up to you and coughs. If you offer them a Ricola, you could win a million dollars. Nowadays however, you could offer someone you don't know a cough drop, and they may sue you for practicing medicine without a license.
George Carlin once asked if you had twenty five odds and ends on a table and twenty four fell off, what would you have left, an odd or an end?
MP3 and Moody Radio
Yesterday was my birthday, and I got an mp3 player from my wife, and yes you can send things you get on iTunes to windows media. WCRF and Moody radio is at this time going through a new share a thon called "Operation Next". They are wanting to further utilize their use of streaming audio, podcasts, and now go into HD radio. the plan is to take their FM signals and along with their primary signal use the other channels for classic preaching/teaching and a praise and worship music channel. For me that might make HD radio a worthwhile investment.
