What's Cooking for Halloween: An Eclectic Elixir

Eye of newt, wing of bat, A dab or a dollop of dragon fat, Stirred in a pot o'er a witch's flame, A potion for love, or riches, or fame, Or delousing a kid, a dog, or a cat, Or dispatching a spouse, or suspending a spat.

Thanks, Ilene. Yes, sometimes lawyers and/or chocolate and flowers just don't do the trick.
