I've got the flu, but since it can't be transmitted via the internet, want to wish you all a safe New Year. This is the first time I've ever been home alone on New Years Day...wife is working. Nyquil is a wonderful thing, but too darn strong...S

.."if it ain't fixed,don't break it...call a Licensed Electrician"
I'm very happy that things were relatively peaceful, with all of these terror threats, etc.
I was monitoring the NYPD copters on my scanner, and it seems that things were quite calm, especially after midnight (somebody made a snoring noise on the air).
As to the flu, my children had it. The doctor's office said that if their fever goes up to 105°Fahrenheit (that's 40.5 Celsius, 313.7 Kelvin, or 180 Gezundheit, careful of the spray), to take them to the E/R or to call the office.
The remedy was bed rest, to drink a lot, and in the case of the fever, we gave the children liquid ibuprofen, which worked really well.
I started dosing up on Vitamin C, which seems to have done the trick. (That, and lots of hand-washing and laundry, especially when parents look like a big tissue to a toddler...)
