I have a sore throat--to be sick three times in one winter is unusual for me. I'm going to start taking vitamin D on days when I am not out in the sun. I'm going to encourage John to take it too--I think he was tested but I don't know if it was the right test. The information at the Vitamin D Council may be oversold but I think it is likely to be useful on such topics as which form of the vitamin and which test.
John tends not to get around to things until late afternoon or evening, so after dinner he took our son to Walmart to buy new watches. John says he is now convinced of the possible benefits of a watch that has three alarms (Timex Expedition is what I usually buy).
