Default How To Avoid The...

The flu season will be coming soon, so here are some hints on
How To Avoid The Flu:

*Eat right! Make sure you get your daily dose of fruits & veggies.
*Take your vitamins & bump up your vitamin C.
*Get plenty or exercise, because it helps build your immune system.
*Walk for at least an hour a day, go for a swim, take the stairs instead of the elevator, etc;
*Wash your hands often. If you can't wash them, keep a bottle of antibacterial stuff aound.
*Get lots of fresh air. Open windows whenever possible.
*Get plenty of rest.
*Try to eliminate as much stress from your life as you can.


Take the doctor's office approach.
Think about it......
When you go for a shot, what do they do first?
Clean your arm with alcohol...

Because alcohol kills germs.


*I walk to the liquor store...(exercise)
*I put lime in my Corona...(fruit)
*Celery in my Bloody Mary...(veggies)
*Drink outdoors on the bar patio...(fresh air)
*Tell jokes, laugh...(eliminate stress)
*Then pass out!...(rest)

The way I see it...If you keep your alcohol levels up, the germs can't
get you!!!

Wonderful advice, starting with "So... . I was never able to get the flu shot last year and I didn't get the flu Apparently, this works
"A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery on a detour."

Or you can live like Howard Hughes......

wear disposable paper slippers
never touch anyone or anything
Wash your hands 10 times an hour
never eat anything not well-cooked, water boiled for 20 minutes
live in a sealed, positive pressure hepa-filtered domicile

Just 1 month to go until the "Cruise Cynic Mystery Cruise" ... January 2008

Judy...sorry that you aren't feeling well. Maybe you can get your doctor to write a prescription for a 'cruise'. Sounds like a good cure for any illness.

Hope you feel better soon!
