    [html] I don't know whether this would cure indigestion or not, but it looks like it could put a stop to most things, including breathing!Am I pleased someone invented Rennies..If a simple thing like indigestion required such drastic remedies, I hate to think what some of the other ailments would have called for.Stay healthyMartin [/html]
