A Case of Covid-19

I knew that sooner or later we’d have a Covid Quiz! See if you can guess the remedy!

Mom, it’s time for the quiz again!

                                                                Shana Lewis


Again???  No way!  Do you have any idea how many years we’ve been doing this?



It seems more like 3.  Anyway, I have two deaths to announce.  You’re probably not going to care about either one of them.

Shana, is anyone going to care?!

I’m guessing Mike Santini.  But this is how we operate here at the Quiz.


I talk about things you think are stupid…


….you tell me I’m wasting everyone’s time…


…but I believe that Linda Santini likes what I have to say!

Oh!  Well that’s different!  Linda Santini, you say?

And Alan once said that I’m his favorite music critic.

Oh, well that settles it!  We’re officially writing for 3 people!  Hooray!!!!!  Alan and the Santini’s…  We are on our way!

Let me begin by saying that Eric Clapton is refusing to play venues that demand proof of vaccination!  Apparently, the UK Prime Minister has made that a requirement now.  I think everyone should take a page from Eric Clapton’s book!

Apparently, he was vaccinated and had a serious neurological reaction to it and didn’t think he’d ever play the guitar again.

I know, that’s what I heard too.  So…. Our first death to announce is that of Dusty Hill from ZZ Top (a blues rock group)…

…that no one cares about!

Mom!  My cousin Jon cares, and as I believe I said once before, Jon is a lot cooler than you are!

He is not!

Anyway, he passed away last month.


Dusty Hill, Mom, try and pay attention!

And what kind of name is ZZ Top anyway, the Top of what?

You might be interested to know that ZZ Top appeared in one of our favorite movies, “Back to the Future-3” (which turned 30 last year, wow that is heavy!)

Which reminds me of something funny from that movie!  Remember when Doc Brown says, “Why is everything so ‘heavy’ in the future?”  Ha-ha!

Mom, as I was saying, ZZ Top plays the band in the town festival!  Here they are below with the star of the movie, Michael J. Fox.  Dusty Hill is on the left.

They’re very attractive.  They look like the idiots who stormed the Capitol on January 6th and tried to overthrow the government!

They also contributed a song to the movie which plays over the end credits.

Well, Shana, as fascinating as this is (not!)…you might want to wrap it up and move on to your next death!

We lost an original member of Kansas.  I’m sure you’re going to say “Who Cares.”

Excuse me, but that is not what I was going to say!  I was going to say, “No one cares, Shana!”

Well, I will have you know, that Kansas is a very important group in the world of Classic Rock!

I know, Shana, I know, and I somewhat tolerate Classic Rock, just as I somewhat tolerate frozen food.

Anyway, it was Robby Steinhardt who died, the violinist and second lead.

Carry on, my wayward son

There’ll be peace when you are done

Lay your weary head to rest

Don’t you cry no more


Yes, I’m memorializing Robby with the opening to “Carry on my Wayward Son”, even though he only sang backing vocals on it but it’s still one of the group’s most iconic songs.  I know it gets played a lot but ….

Shana, do you plan to go on talking indefinitely?

…as I’m sure you know…

Oy vey!

… any time it comes on in the car, we have to leave the station on until it’s over, it’s an unwritten rule of radio.

Shana, that rule only applies to “Get A Job”, “Desiree” by The Charts, “Smoke Gets In Your Eyes” by The Platters, “Those Oldies But Goodies” by Little Caesar and the Romans…

Mom, you’re rambling now!  Anyway, as a violinist, naturally Robby would be all over “Dust in the Wind”.

Would that anyone cared….

Apparently he played viola on that record.  It’s kind of sad that the song he’s most well-known for is about death.

I thought it was about dust.

Mom!!!  I’m not even going to dignify that with a response.  There’s another Kansas song he plays violin on called “People of the South Wind”, but that never gets played.

Gee, I wonder why?

So, in happier news…

Good, it’s about time!

…The Great Muppet Caper turned 40 in June.  I can’t remember if I mentioned it.

Not in the past 5 minutes.

Too bad we lost our movie theater to Covid.

And speaking of Covid….

The ones that are left are doing special anniversary showings of it, and I want to see it.  I mean, you can never get tired of hearing Lady Holiday say about her brother Nicky, “He’s an irresponsible parasite with categorically noooo prospects!”  I don’t think any of the theaters are near us though, and covid has ruined everything!

And speaking of Covid….

Oh and the British Couple!


Did you know that the wife was played by Mrs. Richards from the “Fawlty Towers” episode “Communication Problems?”

Do you realize you’re the only person in the world who knows the titles of TV episodes????!

What does that mean?

It means you know entirely too many things!!!!

Remember?  This is from the episode Mrs. Richards was in:  “You wanted a room with a view?  This is a room with a view!  What did you expect to see from a Torquay hotel room, herds of wildebeests sweeping majestically across the Serengeti?”  Ha-ha!  Anyway, it’s the same actress!

What are you talking about?

Mrs. Richards from “Fawlty Towers”!  She’s in “The Great Muppet Caper” playing John Cleese’s wife!  Geez, Mom, try and pay attention!  Click below, this is really funny!!!!!


And now, as I’ve been trying to say for quite some time….  We have a Covid case for our listening audience today!  This is our very first, and Maria is here from Greece to present it to us, as it was her sister who had it!

What’s her name?

Who, Maria?  

No, her sister!

I believe her name is “Lady Lasagna”.

Is she Lady Noodle’s cousin?

No.  And now, as promised, heeeeere’s Maria!


Hi everybody and welcome to the hpathy Quiz!  I’m very honored to be here today.

So, my sister, “Lady Lasagna”, called me and told me that she tested positive for covid-19 at work.  Self test, rapid and PCR test.

She was having diarrhea very often and small quantities each time.  So can you imagine, she was every 5 minutes running to bathroom.

She was exhausted by this.

It sounds completely insane and horrifying!

She also had cough and could hear rattling noises from her lungs, but could not raise any phlegm.  Her chest was hurting during cough also, but mild pain.

She also complained that she craved an egg, which she ate, but could not digest it.  She was not much thirsty and she had hot flashes.  Mild weakness.

Can’t tell about fever because she didn’t have a thermometer available.

So I told her to take _____________ 200C in a bottle of water, take it as needed with a few succussions before each dose.

She took it, and immediately the diarrhea stopped!

You’re kidding!  Good heavens!

The cough also was better and she could raise some mucus.

The moment she took the remedy, she digested the egg also, rapidly.


And she fell asleep immediately in deep sleep.

There ya go!  Yeah, that’s the gold-standard for homeopaths, trying to discern if a remedy might be working!  That’s what we most want to see!

Now she is more thirsty for cold water, the warm water upsets her stomach.  She took one sip per day based on need—the feeling that she was relapsing.  Now she is in day 3 and she is feeling ok, but she still needs a sip per day.

Thankfully, the remedy is working like a charm every time she takes it!

You know I was feeling insecure about remedy selection, I had to choose fast!  She was a mess.  But I got lucky and I am amazed how beautifully it’s working!

The doc told her that she should monitor her oxygen and if it falls under 94% she should go to ER.  Of course my sister preferred remedies that actually work  😉

“Lady Lasagna” is lucky she’s got you for a sister!

A big thank you for teaching us, it really changes people lives!


Thank you for the great case, Maria.  What a sin!  The whole world is in an uproar over this virus and all they really need is Maria!  Geez!

So listen, if you know what the remedy is, write to me at [email protected], the answer will be in the September ezine!  OMG!  Shana!!!!  It’s that time of year again already, can you believe it?

What, time to play “See You In September” again?
