    Gee wizz! In Martin County now? Well maybe I should completely cover myself now so I wont get that crap. I also hope that dogs are immune from the Swine Flu cause I have two of them. Let all pray that Swine Flu does not ever exist in the United States ever again and that every single human being gets rid if it and survives. Where in the county is the case?
