Cough Remedy Using Brandy?I am looking for a natural cough remedy using brandy. I've been pretty much using it mixed with water. It's the only relief I have found yet. Could anyone suggest other ingredients to add to this mixture? I've had this cough for a week and as soon as I lie down the coughing begins.

We did not receive even one phone call. Has anyone ever sold a collection of Beanie Babies other than on eBay? I can't spend a ton of time on this, but don't want to just 'give' them away either! Please advise!
