Don't want to be a funsucker, but estimates are that 90,000 could bite it when the H1N1 comes. :shocked:

Why am I reminded of Steven King's the Last Stand?

I've got the HIV kind. A freezer full of it in fact. I try not to bring my work home with me though.

I remember the same thing being said about SARS. Get your flu shot, wash your hands, eat well, exercise and you'll be fine.



Get well soon JP.

Get well soon JP.

Thank you. I'm trying... believe me!!!

I'm one for not running to the chemist / pharmacist for a way out. I figure the fewer antibiotics i take, the better off I'll be long haul.

If that happens, will you move to Colorado with Abby or head to Vegas? I won't survive the plague, so I'll just die in my car fleeing to nowhere...:tired:

Well yes, because antibiotics are only effective against bacteria. Since the flu is a VIRUS, they'd be totally ineffective. :thumbsup:

I don't know, that's a tough one. Never been to Vegas. Might be tempting if I get to go to the Star Trek Experience, but I'd probably play it safe and go to Colorado.
Guess it depends on who calls me. Probably no one, and end up like most. :dead:

Haven't seen that series for a while. They'll probably put it on TV because that sort of thing might be on people's minds in the coming season.

To protect yourself just yell: "Shew! Shew! Retarded Flu!"





... At least it seems to work when the flu is coming to get you through the phone.:cross-eye

I've heard that if you just stop watching the news, you develop an instant immunity to the H1N1 virus. It just sounds like so much manufactured hysteria to me.

As for lingering illnesses, I can't say that I have any. I rarely get any illness that lasts more than 2 or 3 days (I'm over most within 24 hours). However, my back has been bugging me a lot the last couple of days, but bailing hay will tend to do that to you when you're used to just sitting in front of the computer.

Hence I retired from bailing after I did it once in college!

You mean bucking hay? I've never anyone bail hay by hand. But I seen tons of people buck hay.

All joking aside, I hurt my back with week as well. I have no idea I what happened. I was just walking to my car when I felt something pop and sharp pain in my back. It's right about at the bottom of my shoulder blades. Today isn't too bad as it doesn't hurt to breath.

The friend I was working for referred to it as bailing hay. I'm not sure what bucking hay is, I'll have to ask. Most of the work was done with tractors, of course, but there is still some lifting and tossing of bails involved (because inevitably a few bails will always fall off the wagon), which can be pretty physically taxing if you are not accustomed to it.

Bailing is the act of putting cut hay into bails. Bucking is the act of lifting and stacking the bails on to a truck (or stacking them in general). What you were doing was bucking. I helped a friend of my dad's buck one afternoon in high school. He told after a few hours thanks, but you're not need anymore. Ouch. Hopefully you where doing hay and not alfalfa. Alfalfa is terrible heavy (and messy). Straw is lighter than hay, but can still weight a fair amount.

Okay, then I was driving a tractor and pulling the machine that does the bailing behind me. Then we'd buck the hay into neat stacks on the truck. I did a count of the big trailer that we filled up and there was around 400 bails of hay on it. :eek: That's not counting the two wagons that we filled up and emptied into the shed at least twice.

I think this was hay with some alfalfa mixed in. Some bails were noticeably heavier than others; but it was also just the first cut of the year. I think they plan to get 1 or 2 more cuts out of it. From what they were telling me, it's the 2nd and 3rd cuts that the horses like since it's much softer and less stemmy.

This is my first year messing with hay and it's actually pretty interesting stuff, but then I've always been interested in farming. :hick:

I've worked with hay in three different states and never heard it called bucking...hummm?

If we're going to be that anal about what it's called, it's spelled "bale," not "bail." Normally, I don't care about minor misspellings, but the arguing over the correct terminology has made me care in this case. :p

I never knew hay (or alfalfa) could be arrested on misdemeanor charges.... :Ponder:

On a flu note, we're one of the sites for national clinical trials for an H1N1 vaccine, and they're turning people and specifically children away because of the publicity.
