I was wondering. How do I get rid of the leech once it has cured my cancer or re-attached my toes? Not that I'm suffering from anything, but leeches feel well ... icky.

This comment is on the Pamplin Park post, but here's the answer to the leech question:
You either wait until they've had their fill or you sprinkled salt on them and they will withdraw.

From what I understand the only pain is a pin prick.

It's just unsightly and we have a natural adversion to icky things.

They don't cure cancer, they help with bloodflow to keep the tissue healthy. Try looking at some of the links on the Hugh Mercer Apothecary page to learn more.

Thanks for visiting!

Please accept my condolences on the loss of your cousin.

I visited Pamplin Park once back in 2000 when my cousin and I did a tour of Civil War battlefields in Virginia. We had a wonderful time and we very much liked Pamplin Park; it was quite educational.

I loved all the battlefields we saw in Virginia and hope to get back down there to visit some more someday.
