  1. bless you!
    L52, 20 drops in a glass of water, every three hours – best just when you think , oh-oh, i might get a cold.
    that’s harder.

  2. I made many tissue companies veeery rich in the past. I’m so glad I’m done with allergies…. it’s just another advantage of having children. πŸ˜‰

  3. Welcome, Smaragda!

    So there are clearly benefits, eh?
    Do you hear that, ladies?
    If you ask me, I think spring is in the air πŸ˜‰

    All the best!

  4. The polls are in: I’m allergic ____ pollen.

    * to (72%, 13 votes) – this is what we say!
    * on (22%, 4 votes) – this would be a direct translation from German
    * against (6%, 1 vote) – this would be another translation from German
