  • The swine flu is a combination of two types of swine, human, and avian influenza. The danger is because it has mutated to be passed through human to human contact etc..., and they are just now working on a vaccine it could turn into a pandemic. In Mexico it has killed several and they are still trying to understand why the US has had less severe cases of it. I read that one man/woman went to the hospital but is in perfect health now. This could be less serious or more serious than everyone thinks. A pandemic could arise or it could die out as the month of April ends.

  • DON'T GO TO MEXICO. Eventhough it's here a little just don't risk it. I have neighbors with relatives there and I'm concerned for them. Very nice people. I hope all is well. If anyone reads this and has relatives there I pray for them. God Bless.
