Now with Cold...




...Madame Sosostris, famous clairvoyante
Had a bad cold nevertheless
Is known to be the wisest woman in Europe...



As with Madame Sosostris so with Monsieur Szirtes who does not claim to be the wisest man in Europe and has an, on the whole, well-behaved pack of cards. Still made it to a reading of Arc poets-in-translation where the languages were French, German and Russian. Suffocated sneezes by popping handfuls of Tictacs...


Shantih, shantih, shantih
It's only a shantih in old shantih town...


....as has been pointed out by another, elsewhere.

The doctor believes in the old adage 'Starve a fever, feed a cold' so first thing George is to take your temperature. Good. No fever. Now George stuff yourself with good food and a little wine if you like. And don't forget the extra vitamin C. Good luck from the quack >°)
your strange word verification is
'je/chance' which is what I'm giving you ... worra-bout-dat-den?

Many thanks, Gwilym. I am feeding it rather than starving it.

Quack, quack. It's the stuffed-up Donald Duck touch.
