Well, Doctor Sparky, I’ve got news for you. Most of these aren’t herbs. But I’m definitely looking forward to trying some of your crunchy granola headache remedy with chloroform in it. Good thing you’re looking for someone serfing on Craigslist – those serfs are used to being oppressed, I’m sure they’ll gobble it right down.
Thanks for the post, Kathleen!
