Kelly’s Mother’s Flu

Flu sends Kelly’s mom to the Emergency Room! Try and guess the remedy.

Mom, guess what?

Shana, I’m busy writing my ezine articles.

Mom, don’t look now but this is your ezine article!

Really?  Am I in it?

Try and follow along, OK?  Billy Joel’s “You May Be Right” from the “Glass Houses” album turned 40 on March 12th, and as you know, I have to document such important anniversaries.

You may be wrong but you may be right…. You may be wrong but you may be right….

Hello!!!  Is anybody listening?

Well aren’t you going to play it?

I’m going to play him from 1998 with Elton John.

Doing what?  Why even bring up “You May Be Right” if you’re not going to play it?

I AM going to play it!  You know, I still can’t believe these Face to Face tours were a thing.

What face-to-face tours?

Billy Joel and Elton John!  It was the greatest thing that ever could’ve happened in the history of music!

What on earth are you talking about?

Mom, try and pay attention, OK?  Here are Billy Joel and Elton John doing “You May Be Right”:



Sadly, I have a Death to announce.  James Lipton, the host of “Inside the Actor’s Studio”, passed away on March 2nd.

That show will be missed.  He interviewed Billy Joel too, as well as the entire cast of “The Simpsons”.  I looked for the Billy Joel interview but I couldn’t find it. 

James Lipton

I haven’t seen very many episodes of the show but now would be a great time for Bravo to put it on reruns to honor his memory.

So our readers can get an idea of what I’m talking about, here is a clip of James Lipton interviewing Conan O’Brien.  He’s also appeared on Conan’s Late Night Show a few times.

Shana, if there are no further announcements?  It’s time to start the Quiz!!!!  Everyone will be very happy to know it’s a short quiz this time:

Kelly’s Mother’s Flu

Elaine, 8+ hours in the ER with my mom yesterday.  Severe flu, dehydration, dementia or something else?  Hopefully they’ll figure it out today.  She’s actually a pretty healthy 82-year-old and laying in bed is not going to help her!

So, not much change in my mom’s condition.  She’s more alert but still very confused, weak with garbled speech and trouble swallowing.  More testing today but no one thinks it’s a stroke as she doesn’t seem to have any other stroke symptoms.  We will see if she has any more of the intestinal problems which is what precipitated all the current issues.  She’ll likely go to rehab for a bit which I hope will be helpful.

Kelly, try __________________.


Hi Elaine,

Just wanted to let you know the ________________ really helped my mom.  I gave her 2 doses of 30x last night and today she is awake!  Talking, swallowing, eating a little.  Still very weak though.  I gave her another 30x dose this morning.  I was stuck between ___________ or ___________ but you helped make the decision for me!  Thanks!


OK, everybody; that’s the case!  If you know the answer, write to me at [email protected] and let me know.  The answer will be in next month’s ezine.

Bye for now!
