    Flu is not the biggest danger ...... It's the vaccine

    Dear Cliffy.....thanks for your cheery note! I haven't had a cold in years and years and this flu thing knocked me sideways - I'd forgotten about fevers and aches but at least I spent my misery in total self-indulgence. I am a fan of the new drinks mixing fruit and veggie juices together and...

    I get the "flu shot" every autumn when it is offered.... never had a reaction until this year... I had it Thursday and Friday afternoon began to feel headachy - Saturday was the worst and was unable to find my stupid thermometer which was probably best because I didn't want to know what it...

    Discussions are already taking place in the U.S. about another 9/11 anniversary - whether this is a good thing or a bad thing I don't know but each year I am remiss in mentioning something that stays with me as clear as the day it happened. How Canada and Canadians opened their airspace...

    Juan - great idea getting separate BBoards for the kids Ahem - are you and the Mrs. a bit more "lenient" on the grandkids than you were with your own kids? I think by the time parents become "grandparents" they are ready to be remodeled by any attention a little squirt will require and...
