Ahhh... it could also be that he isn't used to foreigners? What you describe reminds me of when I lived in the UK!

I'm slow, but I am kind of like the energizer bunny; I can swim forever. I've been doing a mile three times a week, but the two weeks out of the water killed me. emoticon

Yes, lets both eat a low-crap diet. It's the simplest diet-concept ever!

Today is your day to paint life in bold colors;
set today's rhythm with your heart-drum;
walk today's march with courage;
create today as your celebration of life. Have a great weekend! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Hi there, and Happy Valentine's Day!
I thought I would check in and answer your question about how well the oil of oregano and exercise worked to fend off that cold.
I would say it worked quite well up to a point, but that in the face of what seems to have been an especially nasty bug, my system eventually got overwhelmed anyway. My husband has been extremely sick with the flu all this week, so I've been worried that my DD and I would be next. I started taking oil of oregano at least twice a day (about 10 drops directly under the tongue per dose), and whatever little symptoms I was having (sore throat, mostly) would usually subside for a few hours after the treatment. I was doing well until yesterday, when I basically collapsed and couldn't get out of bed all day. The interesting thing is, though, that I feel a lot better today, so it was basically a one-day collapse. Since I usually feel the effects of any cold or flu for at least a week, I consider this to be a huge improvement! It's impossible to know what happened or whether I even got the same bug as my DH, but my gut feeling is that the oil of oregano has been helping me to fight off some kind of illness for over a week now, and that it probably helped to shorten the length of the illness. Being more physically fit is also helping. My lungs feel stronger and I'm better able to recover from any hit to the system.
Hope you stay healthy and have a great weekend!
