No two herbflakes are alike

Greetings,

Winter in Utah. Great for the skiiers. Not so great in the Valley. Bad air was killing all my friends: asthma, bronchitis, flu shot was a dud. I got a massive head cold sitting on the tarmac in Jah-buquerque trying to get home. Decongestant nah work. Maybe a cordless drill in my ear canal will free up some earway.

<Winter in the Salt Lake Valley: Chunky Style air; 12 sec.>

Happy New Year 2015 in the Salt Lake Valley: Inversion galore!

Tis the season of the Hazy Shade of Winter. If your breathing is wrecked or the flu has you down for the count, just spin last week’s Smile Jamaica. Best way to complement your sick leave

<Pneumonia risk by breathing Utah’s winter smog>

bless, robt
