November . . . Thanksgiving . . . Cold weather.

Here are some helpful hints for all three of them. All remedies are inexpensive and handy.

--If the cold weather gives your arthritis a kick start, rub some Colgate regular flavor toothpaste into the affected area. Hmmm.

--If you get the flu or catch a cold, and you have a fever, drink plenty of Gatorade. It will keep you from getting dehydrated.

--Should you drink too much over the holiday season and end up with a hangover, just partake of two tablespoons of Aunt Jemima original syrup, mmmm.

--I don’t know if hay fever will bother you in the fall, but if it does, alleviate your symptoms and give your immune system a boost with McCormick garlic powder (not salt) in your cooking.

--Did you know that drinking a cup of Maxwell House coffee can help alleviate a headache or hangover?

--If too much holiday food gives you indigestion, suck on a few Life Savers peppermints. It will help.

--Can’t sleep from all the holiday excitement coming on? Eat a handful of Planters sunflower kernels approximately 30 minutes before going to bed every night.

--If you are trying to quit smoking, but are having a problem with people around you who smoke, mix 1/2 teaspoon of McCormick cream of tarter in a medium glass of Minute Maid orange juice. Drink this solution every night before bedtime for 30 days. This will minimize your cravings for nicotine.

There you go. Hope it helps you get through the holidays. Have a happy Thanksgiving.
