News For Port Loring

Quiet and not much to report.  Sun is shinning though which makes one day a touch better.  Just darn cold with temperatures hovering around the -13F here this morning. Oh well we do live in the north and it is winter.  But one good thing will come from this cold. Flu and cold virus’s will quickly die off as they can’t survive the cold temperatures. Just one more reason why you don’t need the flu shot.  Let nature run its course is my opinion on the subject and all will work out. Only time we find problems is when us humans get our hands in the pot.   Also if you got a cold or flu…stay home and quite giving it to folks, doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out the benefits of doing that.  Sheesh.  The only way it can spread is the ones that is sick going out and giving it to others.  Not a real hard fix is it?  Stay home!!!!!!!  Some say well I can’t afford to  stay home. You can’t afford not to as you keep on passing it to others where you work and visit.  Eventually you catch it again a different one from folks doing the same as you are doing.  None ending cycle and the only ones making money are the pharmaceutical companies, doctors and drug stores.  You yourself keeps getting poorer and poorer.  Not a good thing my friends use common sense.
