For me, nothing beats a generous portion of raw (green) asparagus as
part of a plate of crudit�s!

My brother was bitten by a dog in Zambia, whilst he was being treated
with big needles for suspected rabies, he got malaria because all the
mosquito screens on the hospital windows were full of holes.

Blood tests are available to assist in the diagnosis of Lyme disease.
The standard blood test detects antibodies made by the dog in response
to infection with B. burgdorferi. Many dogs show positive test
results, but are not actually infected with the disease. These animals
have been exposed to the organism, but fought off the infection on
their own. These animals will have antibodies to B. burgdorferi but
not have the disease. Thus a single positive result means only that
the dog was exposed. As mentioned earlier, only around 10% of the
exposed dogs actually contract the infection.

Lol! Sorry, I shouldn't laugh but it is funny.
You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today.
They left a little note on the windscreen; it said 'Parking Fine.'
So that was nice.
