    That first ride will be the sweeter by Sunday.

    And it was the fine folks at your LBS who probably infected you.

    Sorry, baybuh. ((hugs)) <backin' away quickly>

    What am I doin'?! You have the farkin' flu! Egad! <slinkin' off quickly to another thread, rubbin' hands briskly with sanitizer>

    Take care of that... I caught something similar on a trip and when I came home went straight to bed... Make sure its not Influenza A cause if it is... I spent three and a half weeks in bed... the infection went all the way to my bronchi!!! Thanks God tomorrow will be my first day riding after all this time.... Best of luck

    Never, ever, ask this. Why? Because there are really only three answers:

    (1) You have somebody else in mind for this?

    (2) If you don't like that one, how about this one? (followed by by overwhelming numbers of frogs, locusts, and door-to-door Scientologists - you know, Biblical-style plagues)

    (3) Because sometimes you just piss Stacey off, and asking why will only make it worse.

    When I got my bike back from the LBS, they did a good job tensioning my wheel, but they did an even better job at ****ing up my hub and driver.

    Took me two days to get things back in working order.

    Lactoferrin might speed up recovery. It is a bovine protein when bonded with iron can be one heck of an anti-viral substance. Maybe. Worth a shot=p

    I once asked God, "Why Me?" The answer was, "Why Not!" It is hard to argue with that logic.

    Drink lots of fluids and get well soon!
