We've got some snow flurries here. Still very cold, but better than the past 2 days.

My cold is ramping up dammit, but I won't let it stop me from game night lol!

(I feel like shit)
 Quoting: Simple27


Dammit, why isn't that vodka doing it's germ-killing job?!? Hoping tonight is mellow and you can get a good night's rest and be ready for NYE tomorrow.
 Quoting: KickinIt


I know!! I don't want to go into the new year sick! I feel like that's a bad omen!

This morning at like 6:30am I woke up with a bad belly, took some more Ny-Quil and went back to bed. Woke up around 1:00pm coughing my ass off and all congested. Made a glass of water with Emergen-C in it, took 1000 mg of chewable (lol) vitamin C and now have made a vodka cocktail.

Gotta make some buffalo chicken dip for game night which starts at 6:00 (just over an over from now).

The struggle is real!

I'll push through until Monday and then I will rest my ass off! tounge
 Quoting: Simple27


Put Vick's vapor rub on the bottom of your feet and then put socks on. Helps that coughing big time.

I honestly think I would be dead by now if I hadn't learned this trick. When I had pneumonia in 2014, one of the worst parts was uncontrollable coughing. Hospital almost put me on a vent because nothing else they could do worked.

Once home, started the mullein/turmeric tea and rubbing the Vick's on the bottoms of my feet. Those two things got me through it all. The coughing was killing me. We all knew it.
 Quoting: WhiteAngel


I'll pick some up on my way home. Thank you for all of the tips!

And I really hope you start feeling better soon. hugs

I'm off to game night...ugh lol.

Interesting, I did not know this. Hopefully I won't need this trick, but I'm glad to know it. I love the smell of Vick's - reminds me of childhood.
 Quoting: KickinIt


Rub it on your outside cheek over a toothache and that helps amazingly also. I had nasty horrible teeth and abscessed gums. Pain was bad and only morphine helped and that was only a little. Vick's worked and no more narcotics.

Back from a vacation in South America. It was great! I went to an area that experiences frequent earthquakes and didn't feel one. Weird, but good!

It was definitely an odd experience spending Christmas there. I was there several years ago and noticed how Americanized it's become there since then.


I hope that everyone had a great Christmas and will enjoy toasting the New Year with you all.

Hugs to all that need one!
 Quoting: a Dude, not THE Dude


Dude, South America is my dream trip! I've had it all mapped out for years, just need about 4 months off of work and/or win the lottery and I'm there! I likely will have to end up doing an abbreviated version of this trip that wouldn't take so long - I have that mapped out too. I would love to know where all you went and what your favorite places were. I'm also very curious to know where you were that was americanized?? I've never heard of anywhere in S. America referred to as "americanized", unless maybe it's a place where there's a lot of Ex-Pats. But even those locations are still very Latino.

Anyway, I'd love to hear more about this if you feel like sharing. Feel free to PM me if you don't want to blast it on the thread.

Thanks for the welcome back, everyone! (Sorry I didn't mass quote all the welcomes).

If you speak Spanish, you could get temporary work down there as an English teacher or translator and pay part of your way that way.

I went to Chile with a brief jaunt into Argentina. I didn't go to most of the really cool stuff, like the ancient runes. The more Americanized place we visited was La Serena. We stayed in Coquimbo. Both La Serena and Coquimbo have decent populations of people from different nations (a lot of which retired there). In most of Chile, women wearing shorts is very very rare, but in La Serena it was a lot more common, even among the native population. The stores and restaurants contribute to the Americanization. There are 3 Wal-Marts in the area for crying out loud. English is becoming MUCH more common there.

We went on a whale watch that also visited the Pingüino de Humboldt National Reserve and saw a lot of penguins, sea lions, otters and other birds. We went to Vicuña and visited a vineyard that was also the Centro Astronomico Alfa Aldea. They had a planetarium and good telescope. We also got some good views of the surface of the sun.

We visited the beach and the mountains around the Embalse la Laguna. Those mountains have so many different colors. It's gorgeous.

It was the start of Summer there and the weather was absolutely beautiful. It stayed in the 70's during the day (at the warmest near the Pacific, the lower 80's in Vicuña) and dropped to the mid-50's at night.

The desert was still green because they recently had record levels of rainfall, so the landscape was gorgeous.

The food was really good and the fruit was much better quality (and fresher) than what most of the States get.

One thing to be cautious of is that Chilean culture is very different in that stealing is very common. VERY common. The general outlook seems to be "If I can take it and get away with it, it's okay." (Argentina even has signs about Chilean thievery and that it's their culture.) Watch your wallets!

On another trip, my wife went to Macchu Pichu, but sadly we didn't have time or money to go there this time.

Other than the cost of the plane tickets, the prices were very reasonable and the money exchange rate is good.

Breakfast hasn't caught on much there. Typically it's a light meal consisting of some bread and fruit late in the morning. (they like to sleep late and stay up late)

About 2-3 is typical lunch-time and that's the big meal of the day. If you can find restaurants open later than 7 PM, it's surprising as most eat a light dinner at home around 9 PM. A lot of the towns have a vibrant night life into the wee hours of the night.
