    Is it just me or is ther an epidemic of flue (if you're male) and colds (if you're female) doing the rounds? It started at Wem approximately 2 weeks ago at Wem and since then they've been dropping like flies - sufferers are even permitted to miss rehearsals for fear of infecting others. I have noticed though how it always seems to strike in Wem prior to a contest or big concert.

    BTW - Naturally being female I've only had a cold. :wink:

    I missed a rehearsal on Tuesday because I had a bad cold (not flu) and was accused of going to the football!

    Several years back, I was the only one at work who didn't have a flu jab, and I was also the only one not to go down with it that winter! Most of the time, when people say they've got flu it is only a heavy cold anyway, as others have said elsewhere.

    I've just been to Germany with my band, and I've been off work with Bronchitis and I'm taking anti biotics. Maybe touring is bad for you :wink: lol

    I bet none of you are suffering as much as I am!
    I have got:
    Blocked runny nose
    Blocked ears
    Little/no Voice
    Very sore throat
    Swollen windpipe
    Very dry inside of mouth that just will not absorb moisture
    Problems breathing because of the previous 3
    Headaches
    Temperatures
    Bad cough
    And to top it all off, because of all the water I am drinking in a vain attempt to try and get my throat wet I have to go to the bog once every ten minutes!

    And I am a woman! If I was a man I would be dead by now!
    I await your sympathy...

    How many heads do you have?

    Sorry couldn't help that one - I find beer a cure for most illness!

    The best cure is whiskey, hot lemonade and runny honey mixed together
