It is my understanding that each year the 'first' to get each new vaccine is the US military.

200,000 people mostly between 18 and 24 years of age, required to take every shot known to man, and form the beginning database of their reactions to each shot, along with their reactions from placebo shots.

During my career, I witnessed many drugs and vaccines being tested.

... I would not follow the word of the Canadian CDC over the suggestions of the US CDC. My brother got the seasonal flu shot and THAT made him sick so how does that fit in the equation. No matter what you do you are taking a chance. If you get the seasonal shot you might still get the H1N1 before that vaccine is widely available. The vaccine itself may make you sick. They reported on the news tonight the nasal version of the H1N1 vaccine is a health risk to people with bad livers, kidneys, lungs and pregnant women and they should wait for the shots to come out! Who knows! It's really nice to have ten different sources give people ten different answers.
We were always told with every vaccine shot that we should expect 48 - 72 hours of fevers and flu-like symptoms as our bodies fought off the disease after being induced by the vaccines.

The bay is really lovely this morning RHB... whitecaps and foggy, misting... really moody. It's mesmerizing.

Wish us luck!!! We have a showing on our house at 4:30pm!

When I told my almost 5 year old daughter, we gotta clean up the house because people are coming to look at it to see if they'd want to buy it... her reply was "GOOD, maybe they'll buy it from us and we can finally move to our Maine house and never come back to our house in New Jersey again!"

She's very excited to move to Maine LOL. However, we would still be visiting NJ.

Here is a site that your daughter may like about Maine (all other states too).

Although, my son is now 21 and I can't recall what age a child can get on the computer. Perhaps 5 is too young? Forgive my ignorance.

We just got a call from a friend, a mutual friend's house and barn have burned down. It sounds like they are taken care of, but they are concerned about getting homes for their chickens.

70 chickens; reds, rocks, arracanas, an assortment.

They would like $1 each for them.

My coops are full, I can not take anymore.

Does anyone else want any?

They are in Lincoln - Kingman area.

Forest, sorry to hear about your friends. I'm assuming that no one was hurt, right?
