Thanks bushranger for sorting that out. I've been away.

Close living with animals and keeping mixed species in their pens increases the risk on new flu viruses emerging. Poor conditions for humans and animals put us all at risk.

The Sydney Herald also cites, and I quote "The numbers of cases nationwide has risen to 1542, but no cases of community transmission have been recorded in NSW. In NSW 54 cases have been associated with the cruise ship Pacific Dawn, 29 people contracted the virus overseas, 68 contracted it interstate and 52 cases have been identified as a result of contact with a confirmed case. Another 24 cases of suspected swine flu are being investigated."


I'll wait. Aussies are annoying enough even when they're healthy.

Kiwi Experience bus passengers quarantined on West coast of NZ.


I'll be the Swine Flu Mary was an Aussie.

Not how I'd want to be spending my vacation. Hopefully they've been allowed to shower.
