Now I find I'm lactose intolerant, thus with my dry cereal I use Lactaid brand lactose free milk. Too, I'm diabetic so I must minimize ice cream, although some is now produced with Spenda. My Doc states that the hydration effect of milk is so small that it is meaningless. I now drink a minumum of a gallon of water daily and otherwise as I've said many times now, I presently can't play my horns. Still, yesterday I scoped them, lubed and oiled them. Next year, another comeback !!! Did it once, why not again?
