Stupid Flu

Well I must say that I am thoroughly ticked that the human race is making such a big deal out of this Swine Flu. Don't they realize how stupid it is? Let's check the numbers. 30,000 people die each year just from the normal flu that comes around every winter - 30,000!!!! Last number I heard: a whopping 88 people in Mexico have died from the Swine Flu - 88!!! What the heck?! And the reason those 88 people have died is because they know that the health care available to them is not that great so they don't even bother going into the doctor. We're in America. I think our health care rocks. So if we have access to Rx that will help - GO GET IT! So in lieu of this issue our Mexican Riviera cruise has now been changed to the Pacific Northwest. Are we going to Cabo San Lucas, Mazatlan or Puerto Vallarta? NO! We are now going to San Francisco, Seattle and Victoria BC! WE HAVE BEEN TO ALL THOSE PLACES A COUPLE OF TIMES. Unfortunately we don't want to change it because it will cost us more money for a different cruise not to mention changing our flight plans. I guess the upside is since we have visited these places we know our way around, what to see and do and know the transportation so we don't need to pay the cruiseline for our shore excursions. And maybe the upside is we can get Steve/Claudia to hang out with us for a day in Seattle.
