I have a difficult time with this issue. When it gets reported on campus, it often stays on campus, because they can keep it largely under wraps.

That sounds like something I had. It tore through my workplace and a lot of people missed a week or more. I don’t think it was a flu because the fever wasn’t as sudden and severe as when I had H1N1 several years ago. Read more

I don’t mean that literally. I don’t believe voter fraud is actually a thing. Stein’s anti-vax stance aside, a vote for her is basically a protest vote at this point.

Mr GV’s mum is English (we’re in the US) and somehow her Yorkshires only fall a little bit. I don’t know her secret and I doubt I could find out because she makes them from memory. I know she uses oil because she had some rosemary-infused olive oil a while back and they were sooooo good.
