Have you ever seen this plant and wondered what it was? No, it's not ditch weed, but it's often mistaken for it. This plant is actually in the rose (Rosaceae) family. Although it's considered an invasive species, it has numerous medicinal benefits like most "weeds" do.

I have a small patch of Sulphur Cinquefoil not far from our front door. It is part of our medicine chest

I would have bet the farm that you'd be familiar with this stuff, Mr. Redhawk. :)
 
The only cure for that is hours of television radiation. And this tiny ad:
