Reasons to check your emergency supplies

1. Hurricane season is upon us, or will be in a week. Don’t forget Katrina and Rita from last year. If your house blows away having food won’t help you, but if it doesn’t, it might.

2. Human to human transmission of avian flu. 7 folks infected, 6 dead.

In an effort to find humor in grim places, I am not hanging out with anyone who looks like they might be dying unless they’re goth. Then I’ll just have to hope they only look that way and aren’t really about to kick the proverbial bucket.
