    If You Love dogs......

    The ex got custody of our two awesome GSDs - best decision for them given my nomadic existence. I'm in Nigeria now and was asked to help when a friend found a starved dog. Starved was an understatement. 13kg. Ridgeback /GSD /Boerbol mix. She couldn't give herself a shake without her legs buckling. I saw bone structures I never knew existed. 6 months later she's a rich russet solid protective 38kg girl who's afraid to go out in the dark. Kenzi.

    Are you worried about Ebola coming here?

    Shouldn't that be a new thread?

    Anyone Contract Ebola Today (August 10)?

    One of our Sierra Leone staff diagnosed. Just say a little prayer, please. He was evacuated to France so the US doesn't have to worry, but he's a son, a husband, a father and for all of those reasons deserves a kindly thought if not supplication. Thank you.

    What do you think would happen with a needle stick from an Ebola patient? Or, any bodily fluid transfer. I am not up on methods of transmission, but I don't recall HIV being carried in mucus from a sneeze. Linky Let's just say her husband does not share her enthusiasm. She has more balls than most. Bless her.

    http://www.who.int/trade/glossary/story092/en/ 8m deaths and 1.3m new cases each year - confidence that it's airborne, no ambiguity on control or treatment protocols. But no writhing in agony while spewing body fluids, so no headlines, no global reaction. The issue is, for me, less about the disease itself, and more about the Experts coming across as inept and unsure, behind a facade of arrogance. Fess up. "We don't know for sure, and as a result more, not less, caution in treatment settings would be advisable." What's so hard about that?

    That statement may classify you as a "thinking man" Tom ... dangerous label in a place like this. And yes, that "spread it for 3 months after recovery" thing has a number of people wondering WTF. How a virus remains virulent after being beaten by your body's immune system ... and for 3 months ... this outbreak is not over. And at the risk of asking one too many questions, um, where are the good Dr Brantley and the rest of the males who've been brought state-side for recovery, and more importantly, who are they shagging these days?

    <derail> With apologies, Tom Ray, I've not known anyone to take a picture of how my britches are fitting. If they have, they've not shared. You'll just have to take the word of One of Five and No 6. </end derail>
