Allergy Eyes

With leaves decomposing, there are plenty of allergens in the air making your eyes feel itchy. Couple that with forced hot air and you have DRY, itchy eyes. Some people take lubricating drops to address both issues, others take allergy drops. the truth is, neither will take care of both issues. For itchy eyes you most likely will need an over-the-counter, allergy drop. However, a lot of those drops can actually dry out the eyes. So, you need the combination of allergy drops AND lubricating drops or artificial tears to take care of both situations.

Today's Humor:
During a visit to the mental asylum, a visitor asked the Director how do you determine whether or not a patient should be institutionalised.

Well, said the Director, we fill up a bathtub, then we offer a teaspoon, a teacup and a bucket to the patient and ask him or her to empty the bathtub.

Oh, I understand, said the visitor.

A normal person would use the bucket because it's bigger than the spoon or the teacup.

No said the Director, A normal person would pull the plug out.

Do you want a bed near the window?
