Flu season is not a real happy time in the medical sector and I will never understand why people want to run out and spend money just to find out they've got the flu (which they plainly do) and expose others to it in the process. Stay your nasty ass self at home and don't come back until it's done. Seriously. There is no treatment other than let it run the course and rest. Period. Tamiflu sometimes works, but mostly not. The key to avoiding it is to avoid exposures. As a society we are trained to jump right on the hamster's wheel whenever there's something that might require common sense and rest to heal. Viruses are mean ass bitches, ya'll. Antibiotics don't help so don't expect a shot either.
As of today, both our city and county school systems have received bomb threats requiring police intervention to investigate. To think that some idiot got his jollies using all that manpower just to play a joke is sickening. What if there were a REAL freakin' emergency???

It is do or die time for we the people and I feel the stirring of a peaceful revolution, one that demands respect and justice. For people to be finding places to turn in their guns is amazing. While everybody poo-pooed the Occupy movement and said they were much ado about nothing, I respect their method of showing us just how we as a society have been screwed by speculative trading of not just mortgages but commodities like grain and oil. And then there are the big banks. I kid you not, I've got one after me for a measly sum, relatively speaking, and they just refuse to give it up even though the debt is ten years old and has been returned to them from a collection agency. I would not dare name names though...just think Jimmy Fallon.
My brother's border collie had her first litter last night of eight pups so he's a grandpa and loves it. We went together last January to pick her out at the breeder's house and she's a sweet and gentle as Bandit was rowdy. I can't believe it, but people are still trying to
As for me and mine, it's a hard candy Christmas as Dolly would say. And that's alright, because baby jeebus would love the simplicity of it ^j^
