Ebola
Folks, I hate being 'right' because that means folks are probably going to die.

Homemade Ebola Treatment
I was listening to National Prepper Radio (NPR) about several companies receiving cease and desist letters from some government agency. It seems these companies are selling untested Ebola 'cures.'

These cures range from nano silver, vitamin C, and garlic. Plus, some only work on 'whites'  ; - )

Note:
Folks, like drug dealers, some folks don't care about you and your family. They're just out to make a few (thousands) dollars.

So, ...

Be careful out there.


Protective Gear
Remember that protective equipment, I wrote about a few days ago.

Well, ...

It is going to protect you in public.

So, ...

You and your family may have to go into voluntary self quarantine.

Note:
Yes, I know I said that.

But, ...

I have been on vacation ; - )
