    we worry about cholesterol -- and we've done away for example with fried foods -- and our chef has also cut way back on the amount of homo sapien that he serves.

    you can't be too careful -- and that applies especially to brain.

    Except for truly special occasions like a wedding, New Years, or a coronation, its now strictly verboten at our table.

    BTW-- though we both may know another monkey around here who approves of intra species cuisine -- I have to say, speaking only for myself, that I think that’s just wrong -- don’t care who I offend ...!!

    If it wasn't bird flu it would be mad cow or flesh eating bacteria, or gas masks in school, or keeping anthrax antidote in the cupboard, and moving to a cabin in the forrest, growing a beard, and digging a fallout shelter and hiding out there with my rifles and grenades to prepare to shoot my neighbors if they try to steal a can of spam after the end of days arrives.

    In my life, I have been in 1 major earthquake (in CA), seen a tornado (but luckily never came close to the building I was in, though still very scary...and had the experiencing of helping those where not so lucky), and a volcanic eruption (which was pretty bad even though luckily main blast was in the opposite direction of Portland, OR).

    So...you two see spending 4 afternoons after work making sure we have 72 hour kits, some canned goods, and a supply of water in preparation for my family in an area that has been and will be subject to natural disasters as obsessive with unrealistic fears?

    I think I would call it being responsible for the welfare of my family.

    i guess what i am saying is it is good to be prepared in general but kind of dumb to get all excited and calling doomsday over every new thing that comes along. the bird flu will pass, the volcano probably wont erupt for a million years but who knows a power grid could fail or a water main could burst and you will have the convenience of already having water and supplies.

    good thinking....but keep it general, not focused on one thing

    GREAT POST.....I fully agree with that!!!! As I stated above in post #4, I only posted about the Bird Flu because I found it interesting seeing it from an corporations eyes and what they were sharing with their employees.

    If you notice in the first post I stated we did the prep for the basic supplies long before we ever heard anything about the Bird Flu. I should draw a line in the first post to help seperate that out a little better.
