Preventing the Common Cold

By Sam Johnson

     Well, it’s that time of year again -- the after-holiday cold season!
     I don’t mean the frosty morning wind chilling cold season (although we’ve got that thing going on, too), I’m talking about the runny nose, sneezing, hacking cough, sore throat and general overall misery type associated with that villain known as -- THE COMMON COLD!
     At our home, the cold season almost always follows the holiday season, for a simple reason -- there are lots of people, young and old alike, giving and sharing good cheer, good times, and not-so-good germs. And this post-season, post-nasal scene is fairly wide-spread in other holiday homes as well.
