Our sympathies and good thoughts are with Jim Parks. His mother passed away last week. She would have turned 98 in a two-weeks. What a way to go!

Hope you are taking care. Many residents have suffered and are suffering with the flu. Officials with the Center of Disease Control are warning that this year’s wave of sickness may not have reached its peak yet. Be careful where you go and take plenty of vitamin C. Nationally, influenza B viruses are the most commonly reported influenza viruses among persons under the age of 25 years, while influenza A viruses are the most commonly reported influenza viruses among persons over the age of 25 years.

If you think you may have the flu, you must get to a doctor quickly if you want to take Tamiflu. Also, the number 1 over the counter flu medicine in France is a homeopathic medicine, Oscillococcinum. When patients took it within 24 hours of onset of symptoms, nearly 63% showed clear improvement or complete resolution within 48 hours. This medicine has been on the market in France for over 70 years. It is available most places around here.

But remember: The Bible says; the Lord is gracious and full of compassion, slow to anger and great in mercy. (Franklin Graham)
