Wine Cures Poison Ivy

Well, it doesn't really cure it, because I still have a nasty rash from my wrist to my armpit. But it sure as hell makes the incessant itching more bearable.

Is wine a cure-all? So it seems. Just ask Doktor Weingolb. Wine has been his echinacea all Winter long & he did not catch a cold this winter, thanks to his regimen of a glass of wine a day (c'mon it really only one glass a day?). Come to think of it...La or myself have not been sick in quite sometime.

It has to be the wine...or the healthy lifestyle that come with enjoying wine. By that I mean we enjoy wine but also food & both together...good food too. We cook using raw ingredients & never cook crap, such as instant this-or-that or microwavable slop, sold for pure convenience (except Ore-Ida french fries...I LOVE THOSE!). We don't eat fast food or even eat out at restaurants very much (once a week, maybe twice). We don't live this lifestyle because we are health nuts though. It is for pure pleasure & enjoyment. I guess the healthiness is part of the enjoyment too, but it is not the main pursuit.

My poison ivy is itching again, so I am thinking I need some more Merlot.

    Oops. Did I say one glass a day? That clearly didn't do the job. I was sidelined soon after writing that (which is why the Doktor was out earlier this month).

    Is this poison ivy showing up during your picnics so early into the season?

    Ya know...I dont think it ever got cold enough to kill the wretched flora. It has been in the mid-80's this past week.

    The summer will probably be a scorcher.

    Wine may not cure poison ivy, but it'll put me in the right mood always. Of course that's a good thing only when there are fine women around.

    Yes, the fine women tend to steer clear of the grumpy guys. Plus the not-so fine women start to look really fine after a few glasses. ;)
