While I sit here twiddling my thumbs waiting for Louis to send the results of the samples we sent to France I’ve noticed, via the addiction known as facebook, that many people have been ill with the flu.  I thought I would share some French medical advice that has served me well in my time of need.  The image is from L’Assiette au Beurre (july 27 1907) : Les Poivrots.  This issue of the satirical magazine Les Poivrots was devoted to drinking…of all sorts.  Viva la France.
