Sorry for everyone getting sick, hope yall feel better soon. I absolutely hate catching a cold, it's miserable but I rarely do. Lol, My Doc said I never catch that kinda stuff but if it wasn't for the weird stuff, like Olfactory stroke/migraine stuff, he would never see me.

Don't run off! I can give you a baby raccoon to hang from your neck that will ward off both germs and evil.....works better than garlic!

I went out last night and the mama was in the bird bath bathing.....they do that fairly often. I guess when it gets so bad they can't take it, they know what to do? I wanted to throw in a bar of soap....

Regards!

Well I just ate my breakfast at 1630 hours...
Being sick does that to you.
Time for dinner in an hour.

Last November we had a raccoon visit our birdbath, he/she waddled off towards the woods and fell over on its side a couple of times on the way.
I thought it was from being too fat, but someone mentioned that rabid animals can act that way, so I dunno.
When I was about 4 years old I was bitten by a rabid dog and had to get the shots, but I got them in the butt, not the stomach, our Doc said it didn't matter.

Yep, it happens, but most often it is distemper that is the cause around here. I've seen it a few times and it is very similar to the symptoms of rabies, but tends to show more signs of imbalance and lack of coordination than rabies.
My raccoons are all very healthy, owing to the great diet they get here, no doubt. Not having to scrounge around and rob from area dogs lessens their chances for diseases like distemper. I do keep a safe distance, after all they are wild animals even if they are "friendly wild".

Regards!

Bert.....Whisky and lemon juice...works for me! Not recommending it to a minor, but it's still a damn good idea!

I don't often get a cold or flu...very rare. Allergies are my problem and they come without warning for seemingly no reason I can pinpoint. My drug of choice is Prednisone...it works fast and miraculously! I've tried everything out there but this is what works and works quickly if I take it at the first signs of an attack.

Regards!

If it were only that simple! Godzilla needs to know he shouldn't be here, but in Tokyo, dooming Pentax.

Supposed to be 60 mph wind and quarter size hail. There's loads of lightning and rain too.

I voted for the melodramatic diving as the proper response to such behaviour.

BTW, are there rules against giving a bowler a good batting? I know, I know, very un-crickety...
