    thanks, Shirley..hope you don't get it! my son has flu symptoms. Took him to the doctor today but she said it does not appear like the bad one going around. There have been 3 cases in Springfield, MA (western part of the state but not yet in central Mass.). He is feeling so lousy. I'm supposed to have a flu shot. Got to call my doctor's office tomorrow a.m. STAY HEALTHY EVERYONE

      The great thing about cyber space is that we can "visit" each other and NOT deal with the germs!!

      I hope your husband is feeling well soon!

          Well, this is what I get for procrastinatin! I should know better working at germs R us. Half of my work area has the flu and now so do I! Not been able to keep much down, sinusis are killing me, my body and neck ache so bad i can hardly move, and not sure if I'm in CHF. My ankles are swollen and I've gained four pound in the last couple of days. POOPY!

          I've been back and forth to the doctor everyday this week and due back in tomorrow! Joy.

          Oh well just had to vent a little.
