Well, it's that time of year.  Cold and flu season.  For years I only got sick twice a year and always a cold.  In fact, the last time I had the flu was the last time I took a sick day back in 1996.  For the record, I've only been sick twice in 28 years at WRKR.  However, the last couple of years I've added 1 or 2 more colds a year.

My remedy is simple and you can find it below.  But first, here are the top 5 weirdest cold remedies from around the world.

1. Dirty Socks- Grease your throat with lard or chicken fat and wrap dirty socks around it.

2.  Lizard Soup- Dried lizards mixed with yams and Chinese dates simmered in water.

3.  Pickled Plum- Best steeped in hot tea with ginger and lemon.

4.  Tallow Poultice-  A small amount of tallow wrapped in a funnel cloth with mint and mustard, heated up and placed on the chest.

5.  Turnips- Packed with vitamins C, A and B they're eaten by the plate full usually mashed plus the root vegetable acts as an expectorant.
