Well, Snopes hasn't indicated that Vicks DOESN'T work when applied to the feet - just about the source from which it came.

It worked on my daughter AND my husband, so that's good enough for me!

Blessings,

Sheri Ras.

I did it - it worked - 'nuff said - and I'm not easily swayed by popular opinion -

Just went to the Snopes article and it mentioned something about sleeping with a bar of soap to cure leg cramps???

Really great picture, Lodi.

I've heard many times about the bar of soap under the bedsheets. People swear by it.

Never had to try it.

Smaug, I was worried about you. I didn't think I had seen you post on chat for a few days. Now I see you are here and in fine form as usual. (I'll ignore the medical symptoms!) You might heed some of the advice sent you way; I suspect it might help.

I remember watching the Princess & the Pea when I was a little girl. Did it have Carol Burnett in it or am I remembering incorrectly?

You are remembering the play "Once Upon a Mattress" which was based on the story of the princess and the pea. Back in the late fifties, it was Burnett's first Broadway show. It was later adapted for TV.
