'Tis the season to get sick

We're heading into the two coldest months of the year. That means being cooped up around other people and therefore picking up germs much more easily.

Reader's Digest to the rescue. OK, it's not the Journal of the American Medical Association, but the tips to stay healthy are still good. Among the pearls of wisdom:

2. Wash your hands twice.
6. Nuke your toothbrush.
8. Avoid stress at work.
10. Crack your windows at home.
13. Sit in a sauna.
21. Don't blow your nose. Wipe it.

And if you do catch a cold? Roast garlic in the oven and spread it on toast. Now that's advice I can follow.
