Miz Anne been having trouble with allergies too. About a week ago she started drinking
a cup of feverfew tea in the morning and another in the late afternoon. Doing much
better now than she was on the prescription stuff the ENT gave her. If she doesn't
feel like taking tea she chews 5 leaves of feverfew and swallows them. I'm not
advocating this regime for everyone (formal disclaimer of responsibility) but it seems
to work well for her.

Tell Ray he's still my hero, just reread his treatise on raspberries today.
