Dia is mhuire diobh go leir a cairde and welcome to my report.
They said it wouldn’t catch them all and they were right. Yes i’m living proof that the Flu jab doesn’t guarantee and flu free winter. My watering eyes and pain filled joints and a palate devoid of any taste leaves no doubt in my mind that I have the flu. It reminds me of the flu that we used to get many many years ago always after Christmas or early Spring. Never worse than when the calving season was in full swing. Nearly everyone in the house used to get it but sick or no sick the animals had to be taken care of. After calving each cow had to be give a warm bran drink for three days, multiply that three or four cows calving at the same time. Water had to be fetched from the stream, turf from the shed and the big pot put on the range or over the open fire. With a long wait for the water to heat up and then take it to the cows in their stalls. Meanwhile the sick people in their beds would be pleading for something to soothe their own misery.
