    I'm a little rattled right now. My fourth grader just informed me that four students in his class were sent home with the stomach flu. Aside from washing, washing and washing hands, any other suggestions to keep it at bay at least until after Christmas? We are due to travel to my MILs over the weekend .
    Maybe surgical masks? (just kidding).
    Crap. I just realized he touched my mouse. Get the iodine, get the hot water!

    Good handwashing is your best defense. Unfortunately that crap is going around everywhere, I had it last week and was sick for 4 days. I don't think there is much you can do to prevent it. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you.

    Oooo. I might just have to try that!

    Newfherder: Maybe there's another meaning to that license plate. I think he's a guy from Newfoundland who is a Dr. of Human Resources? =NewfHRDR!

    ShrinkingViolet: TVs in a gas pump? Really? Probably take 10 years to get those up here in Canada. Especially ones that don't freeze during the winter. Wait! Maybe we just need to set the TVs in a screen full of tequila! Then it won't freeze!!

    We have the TV's at some of the newer gas stations. When you take the nozzle out of the pump the tv comes on, and shuts off when you put the nozzle back. Most of the time it's set on one of the cable news channels.

    For the record, I knew it wasn't really you. It was actually in-state tags. The personalized plate was one of those fake tags that can be made to order and it was in the window of the truck. I just thought it was cute.

    That explains the !#@$^@$% prices! Or maybe it is to distract from the price? Or exactly how much you are pumping. . . . .

    Do you live in Kentucky? My daughter and I just had it. If its the same bug, it only lasts about 32 hours if its any consolation.

    I live about 1/2 hour south of Indianapolis - where around 300 people recently came down with the flu after eating at an Olive Garden. Something wicked this way comes.

    Being a restaurant manager that is one of my biggest fears, having an outbreak of some kind.

    My big "DUH" moment of the day... At first I thought you had an actual rodent. It took me a moment to realize you meant your computer mouse.

    Uh, that would be a horrible thing to deal with. I hate looking at people at any salad bars...some are just so filthy with the way they deal with communal food. STOP POKING YOUR FINGER IN THERE!!!
