I read Contact
for a book report as a 9th grader. The requirement was 3 books and a report on each. Contact
was long enough that my
teacher allowed me to only do 2 books. (The other was Jonathan Livingston Seagull
, which if I recall correctly was about 100 pages but had a
large number of pictures. This was well before Mr. Bach wrote an additional 4th part to the book.)
I found Contact
absolutely engrossing and did not mind the 500+ pages. I am certain, however, the majority of the philosophical and
theological elements escaped my teenage, testosterone-and-Mountain-Dew-fueled brain.
The cold is in fact gone, although it took until Sunday afternoon. Different issues today, hopefully something that a generous quantity of mint tea
Thank you for the advice - it is quite close to what I had done for myself. The tea tree/eucalyptus/peppermint combination I usually do with a drop
of lemon oil as well; I simply put it on a tissue and hold that up, or put it in a diffuser and lock myself in a room for a while. Thieves Oil is
another one that seems to be good for colds when diffused. For tea I went with what we had on hand and didn't expect much from it. I completely
forgot about the manuka honey we have - it's infused with anti-microbial spices also.
I was very much a skeptic for herbal medicine for a long time, and in many respects still am. However, I now know there are things that are
effective, especially nutritionally. We put a whole lot of junk into our bodies, much of it hidden in the industrialization of food; it's amazing the
effect of simply cutting out chemicals, excess sugar, and processed food.
