How could you top this for 4.99? I go with the Mrs twice a week to support them and enjoy. Delicious fresh ground coffee not in the pic.

At I am, you are making me hungry for breakfast and I'm home ready to hit the sack. :)

Good one. I once bought a can of genuine San Francisco fog as a gag gift during my first trip to California.

Wouldn’t it be something if crushed bee stingers and ant venom worked. Some of our best and most famous drugs have been discovered by accident.

Penicillin, the first antibiotic was isolated from mold, presumably bread mold.

The history of medicines discovered by accident is fascinating. According to legend, way way back in South America, a native was dying of a hgh fever and he was lost in the mountains. He drank from a stagnant pool and tought he was poisoned from the bitter taste. The water was actually full of quinine from the bark of a certain tree. The name escapes me. Anyway, his fever abated and he was fine. In the early 1600’s, Jesuit missionaries used the quinine from the bark to treat Malaria and other fevers in the native population. This is just a small part of the fascinating history of the drug. The only reason I know this stuff is my brother in law grew up in the mountains of Peru. He became a great Orthopedic surgeon. Now retired. In his native country, he only had basic hand tools, the same ones a carpenter would use to repair bone injuries. In the early days as a Dr., he would get to his patients by Burro or an old beat up discarded WW11 jeep that he and his dad got running. Hope some out there find this interesting.
