Mine is along the lines of Raymond E. Camp's:  A Hot Whiskey will cure just about anything in the cold or flu family!

Irish whiskey (Jameson or Powers is ideal!)
A heat proof glass
7 to 8 whole cloves
2 teaspoons sugar
Slice of lemon

Cut a slice of lemon, remove the seeds and stick the cloves into the fruit. Add sugar into the glass followed by a shot of Irish whiskey.  Add boiling water and then stir.  Add the clove & lemon to the mix.

Wrap a wee' napkin around the glass, so you don’t scald yourself and ENJOY!

1. 10% dish soap in water is a great spray for getting rid of spider mites on plants.  Be sure to do the underside of leaves and entire stem.  Keep it off the soil, as the soap will harm the plant if it gets on the roots.

2. Boric acid powder added to water-sugar solution and put in drops near ant nests and the crevices where they walk will get carried back to the nest and kill the living ants.  You'll have to repeat every week as the new crop of larvae emerge and begin to forage.  Clean the old sugar drops away every 3 days and put down fresh ones.
