Tuesday [4 to 6]

6.  Haiku corner

a.  How the mighty have fallen.  Ask Ms Jones to pay it from the petty cash ...

b.  Must be true - I mean, would you tell fibs to the Beeb?

5.  DR

a.  Harry:  

"I don't want to start sort of going down the First Amendment route because that's a huge subject and one in which I don't understand because I've only been here a short period of time," Harry said." .... 

..... "I’ve got so much I want to say about the First Amendment as I sort of understand it, but it is bonkers," he continued. 

What's that saying "Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt"? You get the drift ...

b.  New website:

Have to see how it goes. Here's their aim: 

"Defund Globalism gives you the ability to instantly determine if you’re handing money over to the architects of the Great Reset. Do a quick search for whatever you’re buying and if it’s related to Klaus Schwab and his crew, buy something else and DEFUND ‘EM! 

Our initial database contains World Economic Forum member companies exclusively, but we’re just getting started." Just did a quick search for Proctor and Gamble "World Economic Forum Member? 

Yes Related Brands All Good, Always, Ariel, Bounce, Bounty, Braun, Cascade, Cheer, Crest, Dawn, Downy, Dreft, ERA, Gain, Gillette, Ivory, Luvs, Olay, Old Spice, Oral B, Pampers, Pantene, PeptoBismol, Puffs, Scope, Tide, Vicks"

4.  Ivermectin?

As for HCQ, had a bit of an “accident”.  See, the bottles of HCQ, cunningly disguised as tonic, are the same size, shape and label type, colour, as soda water.

So there I was in the kitchen wih this bottle, tried opening it and it exploded, shot the top off, all over the bench, me, floor etc.  No matter, use what’s left - poured some, added lemon, waiting for the bitter taste.  Wasn’t any, it was bubbly dull.  Hmmm. Then I realised.

No matter, let’s see if soda’s any good for us, medically.  Wiki:

By itself, carbonated water appears to have little impact on health.[9]

Carbonated water such as club soda or sparkling water is defined in US law as a food of minimal nutritional value, even if minerals, vitamins, or artificial sweeteners have been added to it.[10]

A 2017 study by the American Dental Association showed that, although seltzer water is more erosive than tap water, it would take over 100 years of daily drinking to cause damage to human teeth.

Carbonated water is increasingly popular in cooking to provide a lighter texture to doughs and batters as compared to regular water. 


  1. Bob H says.
    Tonic water contains traces of Quinine, as found in Hydroxychloroquine. But grapefruit skins also contain quinine and are very easy to prepare. The result should be taken with Zinc supplements.
    Clean and chop up a whole grapefruit. Boil it in a little water till the rind becomes very soft. Pulp it in blender till a smooth thick mush comes out. You will need to add water to make the blender work, and I added a little honey for extra power.
    There are no rules here, just no wasted bits other than the pips. For those who like tonic water, you can clearly taste the tonic background from the pith and skin, and to me, that indicates the presence of quinine.
    My wife likes three teaspoons with lemonade. I take 3 teaspoons raw, as the honey makes it yummy.
    We haven't had Covid yet, but neither have we had Deng fever, Beriberi, potato blight, or Dutch elm disease, so it's probably effective against those as well.

  2. Re 4 and 5b As often happens, I start down one rabbit hole and it leads to others.

    "How John D Rockefeller Medicine killed Natural Cures and Alternative Medicine / Herbal Medicines"

    Then I look for something from yesteryear to relax with and this comes up:


    Whimsical... :)

    Of interest:

    Homemade HCQ (quinine) - by Dr Stephen Jones


    Dated, includes letter to US President Donald J Trump:


    Are There Natural Alternatives to Hydroxychloroquine?

    1. Thanks for those Steve.

      I went to this link from one of your links

      https://www.mynaturaltreatment.com/natural-alternatives-to-azythromicin/ which mentions an alt to Azythromicin - oregano oil.

      When the DRs came down with cv19 before it was officially acknowledged that it had arrived in these parts (Dec 2019 - they later admitted it arrived in late Oct) our pharmacist recommended oregano oil in either capsule form or DIY style i.e. 1 teaspoon of olive oil and 1 drop of oregano oil (too much and it will burn the mouth as it is very potent). Also oregano pastilles and lozenges to suck at bedtime to calm the cough to enable sleep. All very effective whereas regular cough medicines either for dry or loose cough during the various stages, made the cough much worse.

    2. I should just mention one side-effect of oregano oil - "Pizza breath"!

    3. In my case, it needs to compete with the garlic and basil.
