Re: Mozzies

Couple of pieces of toast slathered with Vegemite and stuck to either side of your face will indeed prevent a hangover.......no self respecting bar tender will serve you looking like that,,,,,also makes a really good birth control.

There is always gin and tonic. Try it. Maybe it's the tonic I don't know. But one ( at least) just before dusk and no bytes. Preferably Indian Tonic.

"Indian Tonic" water used to contain Quinine: Gin & Tonic became popular with the landed gentry in India as Quinine is a treatment for malaria, it is also what makes the tonuc water have an odd UV glow in certain lights. Not sure that G&Ts themselves keep the mozzies away - however Bombay Sapphie is so heavily perfumed it wouldn't surprise me if it did. Gin, when drunk in quantity over a long period, can result in erectile dysfunction which used to be a common complaint of the very same gentry in India!
