Yes indeed, it definitely soothes the soul and puts the blood pressure back where it belongs. Surely Ben Franklin must have said something wise on the matter.
    Double Amen!!

    The classic prescription is: "Pour a shot of whiskey. Rub some whiskey on the teething baby's gums. Drink the shot; you'll need it."
