Yep. Thank you Jenny McCarthy. :rolleyes:
also if everyone was vaccinated against polio, the one time someone got the disease from the vaccine wouldn't be a big scare
We did not need to be vacc after it was killed off in US, it's just now coming in so all those who were not would now need it.

Correct. I glanced through my records, and I believe I've had all four of the recommended doses.

"The CDC recommends that children get four doses of polio vaccine. They should get one dose at each of the following ages: 2 months old, 4 months old, 6 through 18 months old, and 4 through 6 years old."

My folks once had a timeshare on Sanibel Island, and the causeway collapsed. That's the only way to and from Sanibel and Captiva. They'll have to implement some kind of boat shuttle service till they get the causeway repaired. That could take months.

bug-cats or cat-bugs? That is the real question.

I got to do animal care at our Conservation center yesterday. The boss lady said a worker needed to help since I only had a few days of training (it's not hard though). It's just she did all the feeding and I mostly did just the cleaning. >: ( She did all the fun stuff.

They gave flu shots at my place of work. I always save the uline boxes. These are a bit big for individual mantises, but I may find a use for them.

The last time I was on Sanibel, the place was overrun with Cuban anoles. Apart from the human lives lost, you've got to wonder what happens to the wildlife after a direct hit from a category 4 hurricane. The anoles on the ground would have been washed away, and the ones clinging to trees? Can they hang on during a 155mph wind gust? Will this make way for a different anole population? It might be interesting to see how the island redevelops. In any case, they'll have to restart a ferry service like they had in the 50s, before the causeway was built.

Much of our area has gone under a boil advisory. We had a massive pipe break in the water system, and many do not have safe water/have run out. I'm lucky my family uses well water (and is not part of the town itself), but a lot of people are struggling. People have pretty much snatched all the bottled waters from the grocery stores. It hurts to see this going on. : (

As for me, I'm just in physical pain. It's very annoying.
