Notes

When we don't feel good the first thing we do is make a pot of saimin. I still remember when my wife and I attended a travel convention at the MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas, and I had a cold, but thank goodness on their room service menu they offered saimin. By late afternoon I was feeling much better. Of course you don't have to wait to get a cold before you eat saimin.
