Rodents and Lyme Disease:
Rule Numbers- 9, 16 & 51
April 6, 2015:
I became fond of the girl while I traveled around the land down under. And lately I began to wonder why she was,'t out scooping up some of the money the other girls are raking in.
Discovered her wonderful face on a magazine yesterday, and it lead me to finding out just why.
Turns Out Avril Lavigne caught Lyme Disease, a disease often spread by a bite from a tick which is known to be predominantly spread by dogs.
I'm guessing it's as bad or even worse than catching Malaria, which never really leaves your system.
My Dad got Malaria in Korea and he could not donate blood because of it.
However, I would like to mention that this Lyme Disease has kept Avril Lavigne down for quit some time and I wish her well.

Miss you Avril Lavigne
The reason I brought up this Lyme Disease isn't that I just miss Avril Lavigne, but I think people should think twice about even getting a dog, or as I say rodent for a companion, because they say that we are approaching an epidemic rise in Lyme Disease cases. I think they are carriers of just too much bacteria and germs to consider a safe play thing for any kid or adult for that mater.
As I mentioned before, about these so called Service Dogs that everyone and their brother is beginning to print out new identities for, -if they are not seeing eyed dogs, -they should not be allowed inside public venues, as well as the fishing piers.

Vaccinating against Measles
Rule Numbers- 10 & 20
January 28, 2015:
I think people should vaccinate against measles. We as kids were vaccinated though the schools and we never saw any those side effects people want to claim.
I don't have any kids to worry about therefore I'm not about to look into the numerous vaccines out there and as a result I'm not going to say to do one thing one way or another because one vaccine isn't the same as another, but I think the Measle vaccine is a low risk vaccine and has been around for decades and if there was something wrong with it, we would have known about it a long time ago.
The thing that is urgent about the need for people to get vaccinated, is how easy it it to be transmitted, -(much easier than many other vaccinate-able diseases.)
Another thing people should consider is the risk of bodily damage to organs from complications often involved when children catch the Measles. Much more risky than the Vaccine.
Looks as though we might have a pretty good chance of stopping the measle epidemic that we had growing around here.
I think for those of you who are skeptical about the measles vaccine, (they actually have a name for it with m's and r's) for even the numbers of deaths they claim that it may have caused, (I think 88.) I think as long as the one giving the shots to your kid isn't some back room doctor, looking around on the Internet for the lowest cost dose he can find, (like the Richer Alternator guy who got me an cheep ass voltage regulator,) you probably won't get some vaccine made in a dirty place in some foreign county some where. If you are getting it through your school or local hospital, you can be pretty sure the supplier has been checked out and there shouldn't be anything to worry about.
Only if people would be as worried about the vehicle they drive as much, because the auto manufacturers have been killing many more people than the vaccines have, and people are not afraid to put their children lives into their safety record.
I guess I should have posted that earlier, we would have been ahead of the game. The way I look at it is if people don't get their kids vaccinated, -it would have just devoured the rest of the school year and those with year-round schooling probably wouldn't be able to shake it.
