    The swine flu is back

    Haven't heard anything about this until now, but today I learned that two people in Germany have recently died of the H1N1-virus; one of them a three year-old girl. The other one is a man of 51. Both of them died in a hospital in Goettingen, which is only 35 km away from where I live.

    Two people die of swine flu in western Germany

    Oh, dear. Be careful, wash your hands a lot and stay safe! I got my flu shot this year, which included the H1N1, so am not worried about that, but that's close to where you are!

    Yes, it is close, but I have to admit I'm more worried about the Noro virus and stomach bugs in general since I hate vomiting! But I agree that this whole swine flu thing is kinda scary.

    Way too scary and much to close to me, since I lost a dear friend to that horrible virus back in June of 2009.

    Everyone, please be careful. Don't think "it won't happen to me", because you just never know.
    Our goal in life should be - to be as good a person as our dog thinks we are.

    Thank you for the siggy, Michelle!
