Valerian.

That magic herb that ancient Swedes would put in the suit
of the groom, to ward off the "envy of the elves". (draw your own conclusion)

A Cat attractant, and a Rat attractant.

The pied piper of Hamlyn used this as well as his pipe.

I had only one in my database Blair
Czech SG1982 (1971) T0571 1k20 pharmacology [missing] valerian mortar pestle

In that Lichtenstein sheet, I was rather amused to see "Stinging Nettles" were good for one,
I used to hate them as a kid, we always used to try and push each other into a nice healthy
bunch, on the way home from school.

In the UK Valerian is a wild flower ( aka "weed" ). I grow it
( deliberately not carelessly ) in my garden. It is very pretty in a
group but straggly as a single plant. Being a weed it takes little
effort ,but it is invasive. There is a white cultivated variety. If
kept under control it is a useful addition to the garden.

Thanks Malcolm,
Valerian is in our "Red Cross" box at home.
My wife gives it to me if I am out of routine with sleep
(jet lag), so we pay what $9.95? for  a bottle of weed tablets :)
It may be a placebo, but it works for me.

I remember that these labels were sold in sheets of
maybe 12 or 20 different ones. There were also sheets
depicting various types of ambulance vehicles with
the technical data and some historical information
on the back. Pity I didn't keep them ...

An exclamation I have both heard and felt before :)
My first car was a MkV Jaguar,
how I wish I had kept that :)

Thanks for the info.

Proves you don't know what's good for you, lad.
Have some cod liver oil.

My solution is even cheaper.

I just tune into our parliamentary TV channel.

They usually show Question Period reruns in the middle
of the night and I am fast asleep within a few minutes.

What a beautiful car that was, albeit my example a lot poorer,
I was probably around 17, and decided we needed a fire engine red one,
so we painted it by brush. eek!
Bad memories though, it was from the boot/trunk that I lost to burglary,
my first Stamp Albums.
