I've written up a short, somewhat humorous article on Czech home remedies. If you've been here a while, you know I mean mostly alcohol. I hope it is both informative and entertaining.

I had an awful stomache ache sometime ago, I could barely move myself, and was crying in pain. My neighbor heard about my pain (we live in a small village, everybody takes care of everybody's business!!!!), and came with a bottle of slivovice!!! She said it would cure anything, that it would kill any bacteria on my body!!!!!

Slivovice is commonly known as "Moravian penicillin".

My business partner's grandfather attributed his long life and good health to having a shot of slivovice every morning upon waking. One morning he didn't have it AND HE DIED.
