Hot Healing Drink for the Winter

It's freezing here today, only 16F at noon!  Hot chocolate bothers my tummy, so I thought I'd post a different hot drink that I adore and it has healing properties to boot.  It is rumored to help you feel better when you have the flu as well or a chill you just can't get out of your bones.

1 cup milk ~ any kind.  I have used soy, rice, almond, cow, whatever you have on hand and like.
1 TBSP ground ginger
1 TBSP ground cinnamon
honey to taste

What I do is heat the milk (I prefer on the stove but you can certainly do it in the microwave as well).  Add the spices either before or during the heating process.  Pour a bit of honey in the mug you're going to use, then pour the hot milk over it so it melts thoroughly.

Join Rats Website is showing my Oliver!

Gwen from JoinRats happened to notice a picture I had taken of our own Oliver yawning, and because of this lucky shot, he is now on her wonderful and informative website!  This moment, right after naptime, was captured just as he was in mid yawn and happened to loll his tongue out, getting a perfect glimpse into his little mouth (thankfully I wasn't taking pictures with my camera phone or it would have been all burry!  lol) and you can see in extraordinary detail his healthy teeth, tongue, and flaps in his mouth.  Please take a moment to go over there and "like" the picture on her website to let her know you all are looking!  Thanks!!!

He is in the anatomy section (under Rat Health) of the website  :-)

I'm so happy to see a member of our own family on such a great and accurate website.  Thanks, Gwen!
