people with weakened immune system's the elderly, front line medical staff and teachers.
but for the rest of us, not needed...
H1N1 is a virus.
A virus by definition can only hit us once.
the Chicken Pox is a virus... and who has had that?
yeah 90% of adults in Canada have...
So I looked up the H1N1 virus and you know what?
more people have gotten more seriously ill by the common flu then H1N1.
most suspected cases and confirmed cases made a full recovery.
so no offense is meant, but I for one wuill not get the H1N1 vaccine.
HUH? you ask...
well lets go back to my Blog about the ER experience from Hell....
Around the 7th of October, I got a simple infection on my bladder, or so I thought.
I was told I have Kidney Stones but they have passed.
the tests I have had since October 7th
1 CT Scan.
3 Blood Tests
8 Urine Tests.
But It must be an Infection, I was told I mean I have Hematuria ( For those who don't know that means I am pissing blood ) Along with elevated Biliriubin counts ( that's the bile from your liver)
my White Counts are stable ( Indication of NO infection) yet my Potassium is low ( Iron or Red Blood Counts)
They gave me 3 types of Antibiotics
and NO they did NOT work.
( Probably because there is no infection)
the pain got worse each and very time....
so to round this up one trip the the ER during Pig Flu time. 2 trips to Urgent Care and 3 trips to my Family Doctor!
( I will say If I get the Swine Flu next I wouldn't be shocked)
So On Monday was my most recent Follow-up with my Family Doctor, whom is really very good, he knows I am against taking too many pills. He also knows I am against pain and all it stands for.
He collects all my data
he looks at me, scratches his head and says...
" You need to see a Urologist."
I look at him and ask what he suspects I have, and he said
" To Be Honest Shel, I have no idea. But I don't like the blood in the urine and your skin looks horrible. you have no infection and no Bacterial growth- this is why the antibiotics are NOT helping."
So I have no idea what he is looking for, I did google my symptoms..
I strongly reccommend NEVER doing that, of course it said I have Cancer.
so now I wait for the Urologist's call.... untill then I take my Tramacet and avoid doing much anything else...
and FYI: Tramacet is nice, it works well.. probably why its a narcotic!

this was the last time the boys in Blue held that cup, Their last appearance in the Stanley cup Finals in fact.
but we kicked the crap out of the Montreal Canadiens.
the series went like this
We won it at home in the Maple Leaf Gardens to a sold out crowd... and that was it !
We never won the cup again.
but let us re-cap that season.
Bobby Orr made his NHL debut on October 19, with an assist in a 6–2 win over Detroit.
Terry Sawchuk got his 99th shutout when Toronto blanked Detroit 4–0 on February 25. He got his 100th career shutout on March 4, when Toronto defeated Chicago 4–0.
Bobby Hull scored his 50th goal of the season when Chicago lost to Toronto 9–5 on March 18 at Maple Leaf Gardens. Another superlative for the Black Hawks was Stan Mikita, who tied the league scoring record with 97 points in claiming the Art Ross Trophy for the third time. Mikita was also awarded the Hart Memorial Trophy as most valuable player.
The Chicago Black Hawks, who had won three Stanley Cups, finished first overall in the standings for the first time in their history, a full seventeen points ahead of the Montreal Canadiens and nineteen ahead of the Toronto Maple Leafs.
( Taken from Wikipedia which I re verified all of this info is facts )
So what the hell is your point? is what your asking me, eh?
well lets get to that point.
in the past Forty odd years we have been Cup-less...worse yet we never to make it to the finals, we came close once, but like all Leafs fans I believe fully that IF we went against the Habs in the early nineties they would have been eating crow, but alas this didn't happen because Gretzky is a cheat and the Refs are as corrupt as Conrad Black!
WE didn't get to the finals and like most Leafs fans I rooted the Habs on because the thought of the Kings winning sickened me to the core of my being.
so I rooted for the Habs .. I didn't like it, I wasn't proud but I did it.
WE have had to deal with the Montreal Canadiens make fun of us, we have taken on the name "Toronto Make-Me-Laughs" WE have to deal with jokes about this since before I was concieved.
for the past 4 decades we have been the joke of the NHL.. but now some little fact-oids .. enjoy and for those fans who are just about to give up please keep reading....
we have NEVER had such a loosing streak in my memory either. in fact the last time was 43 years ago... hmm, sound familiar does it?
it should.... keep reading
but then Trish pointed out these little facts
I dont know if this 7 game losing streak is a omen to a great thing or not...
but before you rule the Leafs out.. know we have come back against bigger odds only to win the cup... Thats correct my friends the last time we sucked this bad we won the cup!
so to all you nay-sayer's who think the leafs suck or you bandwagon fans who are only loyal to the boys in blue when we are winning.. to you I say " Pfft"
Go Leafs Go!
WE broke our losing streak at 7...
lets finish the season far better then it started...
2010 Stanley Cup is still up for grabs.. perhaps its time to reclaim it!

- Ever Notice that drivers who don't give space on the road are often those who yell as people who work in drive thru's?
- Ever Notice that people who think they are better then other people are often the most insecure?
- Ever Notice that Kids who are bullied are from adults who used to Bully?
- Ever Notice that people will ask questions and do not ever actually want to know the answer half the time?
- Ever Notice that couples that claim to be perfect are the first to split up? and those who claim to have a tonne of problems stay together forever?
- Ever Notice that self-important people are actually the saddest people you know?
- Ever Notice that rich people are cheap and poor slobs are generous?
- Ever Notice men who drive souped up cars have small penis's?

These are someone's husband, wife, fiance, boy/girl friend, son, daughter, mother, father, brother, sister, aunt, uncle, cousin and friend.
What are we fighting for?
Many people see the " Oil war" the one the media shows us. They only ever show half the truth. folks there is a LOT more to this war .
This war is about human rights.
before we went in, before 9-11 even...
women were forced to wear burka's a heavy drape and cover their total body including face in a robe that weighed more then a 8 year old child. DAY- in DAY- out. They were NOT allowed medical treatment, they were not allowed to go to school, hold down a job, read a magazine or go to a market without a man.
The people of Afghanistan were not allowed to vote.
they had NO rights.
Children were given guns and taught to hate based on a extremist's point of view.
The audacity that occurred in Afghanistan before Canada went in were so horrible that I will compare this to another incident in the 40's
Last time I looked we are Canadian.
we stand for goodness, we stand for freedom, we stand beside our neighbours and help them out when we can.
Last time I looked I can say what I want when I want too. I am allowed to be educated, my children are not given guns and I can see a doctor. the only thing that weighs 60 lbs that I carry is my 8 year old son and ONLY when I want too. I can go shopping and I can have a job.
I am equal to my husband to my doctor and to the Prime Minister.
If my neighbours needed my help I always try and help. As they do that for me.
I sing my national Anthem with pride and I do love the Toronto Maple Leafs even if they suck!
but most of all I am grateful to all the soldiers in our Armed Forces. I am grateful to the services they do across the globe and I mourn each and every loss.
My grandfather fought in WWII on my Dad's Side (we lost him in 2002)
My Grandfather on my Mom's Side was a Vet from the Korean war. (we lost him in 2007)
every solider that dons this uniform stands up for us, please read the following list and stand up for them.
this list may be updated so here is the actual website.
The Fallen Soldiers of Canada
please keep your prayers for those men and women in Afghanistan safe not just on November 11th but each and everyday.
God Bless those troops. and remember your opinion is allowed because these brave people and those before have given that to us in Canada, and we have already given the Afghani's their Vote back, their schools are open to children regardless of gender. Women are holding jobs again and getting medical treatment.
our troops HAVE made a difference and they will continue to do so
