Swine Flu and other ramblings…


Posted on 5th August 2009 by Tony in Random

It seems that Swine Flu has finally hit South Africa, and as usual our Department of Health can’t really keep upflu. They’ve just stopped counting. We were all told that it’s “mild” and we’ll all get over it only to hear about a 22 year old healthy guy from Stellenbosch who died within two weeks of feeling a little under the weather.

Which of course has me a little concerned. I’ve been harbouring a flu for about 6 weeks now. I’m one of those people that just grin and bear it, mainly because flu is caused by a virus, so I don’t see the point in taking antibiotics.

According to my friend, Jeremy, who works at one of the national labs the reason we take antibiotics is “to prevent secondary bacterial infections; the virus is knocking yr immune system; so an oppertunistic bacteria can move in”.

The point however, is that the flu-bug or something there abouts has infected my office … and all I can say is “Man Down”.

    I think that what you said was very logical. However, think about this,
    suppose you were to write a killer headline? I mean, I don’t wish
    to tell you how to run your blog, but what if you added a headline
    that grabbed people’s attention? I mean Swine Flu and other ramblings…
    « Free Tips DOT COZA is kinda boring.
    You ought to peek at Yahoo’s home page and note how they create article headlines to grab viewers to click.
    You might add a related video or a related pic or two to get people excited about everything’ve written. In my opinion, it might
    bring your website a little bit more interesting.

    Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point.

    your intelligence on just posting videos to your weblog when you could be giving

    First off I want to say superb blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
    I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts
    before writing. I’ve had difficulty clearing my mind in getting
    my thoughts out there. I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just
    seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually wasted just
    trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints?
    Appreciate it!
