  1. Love the quote! My mother’s garden is a pharmacists wet dream with all her herbal lore – including the stuff that can be fatally nasty if taken without the right dose, knowledge and purpose! 🙂

      What does she do with the herbs? I assume she isn’t poisoning the good people of Winnipeg?

      1. Hehe! Nope – I think she just uses the flowers and leaves of things like Hemlock in flower arrangements not on unsuspecting guests! Her knowledge is prodigious and she used to be a guest lecturer on herbal lore in our neighbours pharmacy class at the University.

  2. Great quote there 🙂

    Reminds of something I just recently bought. It is a chemical to remove algae from my aquarium however I have to get the dosis right otherwise it will kill everything…furthermore in the right dosis you can also use it against infections in the gums! (wouldnt try it though, too crazy stuff)

      That’s a mad product. But just think how useful it’s going to be when you get algae on your gums.

    Brilliant! I was really surprised when working in an ICU that there was a prescription for curare (the well known South American poison used to paralyze prey). It was used occasionally on patients on artificial ventilation to keep them from fighting the breathing tube.
