Swine Flu symptoms

I have at last managed to buy a digital thermometer. So now I will be able able to tell the difference between having a raging fever and/or a hot flush. My very old mercury thermometer broke a couple of years ago. It doesn't feel the same taking a temperature without having to shake down the mercury before and after. Sigh - for the good old days.

Some practical suggestions for keeping healthy, and hints on how to avoid succumbing to a virus such as Swine Flu can be found here.

Hello to you too! Sorry it took a while to return the visit, I've been on my holidays. I am now brown and broke. Possibly with a diseased liver.
I am continually checking Husband for swine flu, he's convinced it's him next, there's no way I'll buy a thermometer he thinks only doctors are allowed them and wouldn't stop checking his temperature if we had one round the house....

I hate the centigrade ones too. I still tend to think in Fahrenheit and have (possibly) one of the last of the digital Fahrenheit ones there are. You can't seem to get them these days.

Hello Millen House - nice to see you - thanks for calling by.

Roserio - I was lucky the one I bought can switch between F and C. Being a trad lady I altered it to measure in Fahrenheit
