The usefulness of cheap whisky where bugs are concerned is underrated in my view.  Copious amounts of Hot Toddy plus similar amounts of prayer worked wonders.  The prayer may well have been the biggest influence on the healing but the Toddy stopped me from thinking about it!  There followed a quiet day at the museum.  Remarkably few people around and only around £6 taken at the till. Something must be done!  The folks are falling fast, another leaves for higher things tomorrow, yet another volunteer has a sick family member to care about and one found a job!  Looks like I work Friday morning as well as Saturday this week.

Nothing interesting happened round this way 
so here is a British Transport Film.

It depends on how copious the amounts of whisky are. If you find it's not working...drink more...you'll eventually get the amounts right; if not, by that stage you won't care anyway!

All jokes aside...I hope you're feeling better very soon. Take good care.

Hot toddy is definitely the best cure. Hope you are feeling better by Friday or you'll be grumping at any visitors to the museum.

Ah! Bugs like flu! I thought you meant bugs like midges! I thought there might be a way of using whisky as a midge repellant.

I agree. If it doesn't actually make you better it certainly feels as if it does.

I'm glad you are better!
I was first given moonshine in a small Coca-Cola bottle for my illness when I was about three years old. No wonder I am so tough!
That film and the announcer's accent! It seems that at that time all the English TV announcers were very high class, I wonder if that changed when the Beatles came along. Ah, the Beatles, I love them so!

Lee, hic....aye

Mo, Me, grumpy? Never!

Dominic, Surely you know that bugs are virii and bugs are beasties? Tsk! Whisky as a midge repellent? Might be worth a try.

Kay, Drinking at 3, that tells us something!

Lovely film...thank you!
A lost world...when people had jobs!

Oh, and I'm glad you are feeling better.
