Time for a new Porch. I thought maybe we would like a new pic of a porch. I like this one with ferns, lots of comfortable furniture and pretty throw pillows. There's enough room for all of us to gather and bring our beloved fur critters to romp outside on the grass. Because it's virtual, we can imagine whatever we want. I'm imagining lots of fun conversation and delicious refreshments.
Spring, I agree with you that it's best to get one's info from several trusted news sources. It's a shame that we have to mistrust everything we read or see. Even videos can now be hacked and it's very difficult to recognize that they have been tampered with. Scary new world. Experts pretty much now agree that the virus was transmitted from bats to animals and, at some point, the animals transmitted it to humans. That is how the swine flu was believed to have started in humans. I saw a show on PBS which showed bats feeding on fruit from a tree that shaded a pig pen. The pigs ate the fruit the bats dropped and they became infected. They, in turn, infected humans. One positive note is that several vaccines in trials are looking promising. I think we are learning from these diseases and may be able to produce vaccines in much faster time. I hope so.
Well, Kiddies, it's time to go read the paper. I woke about 2:30, read until almost 4:00 and finally got up. I'll likely go back to sleep later this morning. I went back to bed yesterday. I'd like to get out and walk; I really need to move. We got some heavier rain during the night but it didn't last long. I don't know whether it's sposda rain today or not. Hope all y'all have a very good day.
