Swine Flu and Clorox Wipes

This winter, according to California’s state government, one of four Californians will contract the Swine Flu.

And of course, this whole darn vaccine thing is a problem, they say. Not enough, not the right virus, needs more research, etc.

Those kinds of nameless government-originated edicts make me mad–they create nothing but fear.

Until I remember that most everything the government of California predicts is usually wrong, anyway.

To my way of thinking, common sense is the best medicine. Wash hands a LOT. Get more rest. Slow down a little. Eat more healthful foods. Take your vitamins. Exercise. Get out in the sunshine and fresh air every day. Laugh more.

And use Clorox Wipes! Apparently, (and I have it on good authority) that product is BOOMING.

    I don't believe it will be as bad as they say and I think they are over reacting and putting fear into people. Vaccinations should always be voluntary.Especially when they admittedly don't have the correct formula.
