    ...but, I'm dealing with a burning sore throat and head congestion. Today is the first time in well over two years or more that I've called out sick. At least I get sick pay for the day off, though.

    think it was something to do with sea travel and heading below decks to escape the weather when you were seasick.
    or that could be one of those common falsehoods that I’ve fallen for...

    anyway, sorry mate, hope you feel better soon ;)

    Sorry to hear that Dyre, hopefully you'll get better soon, and be on your feet again.

    Here's to a quick recovery friend.

    I hope your throat feels better today. I woke up with similar symptoms a couple of weeks ago, but thankfully it wasn't too serious. I did feel a bit ill for the first two and then I just had a runny nose for the next 3 or 4 days.

    I got a flu during the beginning of fall, and a cold during the end of our very short fall here, it's winter proper now as we're buried in snow now.

    I am feeling better....still not 100%...but much better than I did a couple days ago. I'll be going back to work in the a.m. I really didn't want to use the sick pay but I'm glad it's there when needed. I do get 5 days per year paid sick leave. I also get 2 weeks vacation pay....which I've already used this year's for vacation. If I don't use the sick pay .... or whatever amount of it I don't use during the year .... I get a check for it after the end of the year.

    Thanks for all the well wishes!
