    The best inventions were those designed by somebody trying to get out of work!

    Family gathering this afternoon at our casa de campo in the country for a belated anniversary and birthday celebration and to view all the renovations ( I haven’t seen – my surprise birthday gift from them ) on the cottage and grounds.

    I know a few people like Primo Tulio. My mother used to say that they were “vaccinated with a Victrola needle”! ( All you youngsters may have to google that one! )

    And since rats are known to spread plagues and disease, that seems very apropos, doesn’t it?

    Many, many years ago I was having trouble being able to eat a meal and keep it down. This went on for several years until an internist diagnosed it as a nervous stomach and recommended that I smoke about half a joint 30 minutes before eating. In those days, marijuana was not legal in any form but he’d been researching the effects of cannabis on the appetite at John Hopkins before the Feds shut down the research.

    Long story short, I tried his suggestion and found that for the first time in years, I could finally eat and keep down a full meal. After about 6 months, I no longer needed the pot as a digestive stimulant – my stomach and appetite improved that much.
