Dont let your neighbors get you riled up...ignore them if they want to be uninformed, let them watch T.V.! Not too smart of them...but oh well!

You are right to do what you think is best for you and your family. We still do not really know the ramifications yet, so better to play it safe, especially if you live in an exposed area!

I have been on way too many cruise ships...always got sick,LOL!

Can it be just a matter of time before this starts showing up someplace like a ship or an entire plane?

Large amount of people in a contained area basically sharing air...someone is carrying the bug.

Just sayin'.

That's why I raise my own chickens. Strictly for egg-laying. They are too much like pets now to kill them, but if I wanted to eat chicken, you can bet I'm going to avoid the fast-food variety and go straight to a local farmer for all my meat. We already are getting our milk locally.
I think if we all tried to get our foods locally and sacrified the time to cook it ourselves, we might be healthier overall and the sanitation practices would be more closely examined. Or if they aren't, then we can keep an eye on local places and call it in if we think something is amiss or if we think the animals aren't being treated well. If we can keep an eye on these places, rather than trusting the government with the inspections, maybe we can avoid things like the flu vaccine. So local animals, hopefully better sanitation and health, fewer problems. Thoughts?

Also, is it just me, or have there been more suspected and confirmed cases today than anytime previously?


Lucky, I'm stuck in the city. I would never be a strict vegetarian that does not eat eggs cheese, milk. Dairy cows have to be well cared for or they don't produce. I think laying hens don't have it too bad, they love sitting on those nests.

Yes more of us have to start keeping an eye as you suggest. PETA has been doing it for years and being laughed at, but I think people are taking it more seriously now. I am getting to where I don't care at all about having meat, I make macaroni and cheese a lot, pinto beans and Jiffy cornbread (yum), cheese potatoes and some nice stir fried vegetables. I am not totally weaned off meat yet but I have been working at it. Especially since I saw the video of the cows who didn't die after being knocked in the head being scooped up with a front loader as they staggered around.

This is really interesting...A Pork Fight

U.S. Warns China about Pork Ban

After taking hits on product safety for everything from tainted toys to tainted milk, China wasted no time banning U.S. pork imports in the wake of the swine flu outbreak.

China and a string of other countries have moved to ban pork and other meat products from some U.S. states over the past week. The trend on Tuesday drew a rebuke from U.S. officials, who are warning trading partners that such embargoes could trigger "serious trading disruptions."

Here is a link to the rsoe "swine flu" watch site. I have been watching it since uhm, I want to say Sunday, and on Sunday only Mexico and the USA had cases of this flu. Monday when I woke up and checked the site, it was spreading all over.

www.idemc.org...

We live in a smaller size town, the newspaper yesterday said that our schools are getting ready, though my children stated when they asked (one in elementary and one in high school) that almost no one knew about it, and the teachers were not saying. So I do not know what to believe in regards to how our local schools are getting ready for such a possibility.

But then just a little while ago

My husband had me call around for those medical masks, the N-95 that is rated for such uses, and everyone is out, except one medical supply store which had ONE 5 pack for ten dollars. Since my husband works right across the street he ran over to get them, and they were already gone. So even people in our little town seem to be gearing up a bit.

Stay healthy everyone

Peace

Mexico City restricts thousands of public places over swine flu
www.cnn.com...

MEXICO CITY, Mexico (CNN) -- About 35,000 public venues in Mexico City were shut down or told to serve only takeout meals Tuesday as officials tried to contain a deadly swine flu outbreak.

Authorities ordered restaurants to serve only takeout food and mandated the closing of bars, clubs, theaters, pool halls, gyms, sport centers and convention halls until May 6, said Juan Jose Garcia Ochoa, a top city government official.

City officials did not shut down public transportation because only the federal government can do that, Garcia said. But city officials asked the Mexican government to take that step, he said.

"That's a very serious and extreme matter," he said.

Local source's in California


Swine flu has been ruled out as the cause of one of two recent deaths being investigated by the Los Angeles County coroner's office.
Coroner's Assistant Chief Ed Winter said Tuesday that swine flu was not found in a La Mirada man.
Winter says lab testing is pending in the case of a Long Beach man but swine flu is now not suspected.
Both deaths were reported to the coroner's office on Monday.

Several hundred students have fallen ill at the New York school hit by a swine flu outbreak, city officials said Tuesday as the number of confirmed cases in the United States rose to 68, with at least seven people hospitalized.

A U.S. health official said deaths were likely.

"I fully expect we will see deaths from this infection" as swine flu cases are investigated, said Richard Besser, acting director of the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

I'm seriously begining to think it should be called "Swine-dle" flu?

It makes NO good sense to me why it should be so damn hard for things to have a bit more clarity at this point.

Thanks to all who work tirelessly to update,the amount of BS out there is staggering and it's hard to know which end is up,LOL!
