*Note

-- I have to say that I have not been this miserable or sick in a very long time and I hated almost every second of it. The bright side is that I am deeply thankful for the health that I do have and very respectfully admire folks that bravely deal with much greater illnesses . And in all seriousness my silly bout with the flu (and random extras) was a nice wake up call in more ways than one.
