In the first few hours
Every time a sick person coughs, she expels some 2,000 virus-laden droplets. If you inhaled any of those (or touched a door handle coated with them, and then rubbed your nose or eyes), they have floated through your nostrils and are burrowing into your airway’s cells. Unlike colds, which attack the nose and throat, the FLU VIRUS can travel into the lungs.
Your immune system goes on the offensive immediately. It begins churning out antibody and T cell soldiers that latch on to and destroy the virus. Had you been vaccinated against this particular strain, you’d have antibodies stockpiled.
For the next day or two
You’re unaware that the virus is now using your body’s cellular machinery as a copy machine. Swollen with rapidly multiplying flu, the infected cells in your body begin bursting like water balloons, spewing virus everywhere. You are now contagious. Hence, you should always sneeze into a tissue or cough into your inner elbow.
By day four
Your immune system can’t keep up with the furious flu spread. Symptoms hit you like a freight train. You can go from feeling peppy at lunchtime to being bedridden by 5 p.m., beset with fever, chills, headache, and crazy-tender muscles. (Taking a few ibuprofen can help ease the aches.)
It’s not the virus that makes you feel like crap. The misery stems from inflammation, the result of an immune system in “code red!” All of your body’s energy is being used to slay the flu; you can hardly muster the energy to walk to the bathroom.
To keep dead cell debris from clogging up your lungs, you develop a dry cough. Your throat starts to ache from the irritation, which can trigger a release of mucus. A saline nasal flush might help. j
For the next three to five days
The only things that can really help you now, antibodies and T cells, are locking on to their targets. You’re stuck in bed. (If you started taking prescription Tamiflu right away, you might recover a bit faster; otherwise, don’t bother with vitamin C or other OTC fix-its. Stick with tons of fluids and rest.)
If you’re really unlucky, normally harmless throat bacteria have descended into your lungs to feed on dead cell remnants, putting you at risk for pneumonia.
After about a week
Assuming you’ve escaped pneumonia, your immune system finally stamps out the flu virus. Whew. Your inflammation slowly subsides, as do your symptoms. But you may still be contagious for a day or two more–and it may take another week to feel like your normal, healthy self.
Wash your Hands and sing. Sing happy birthday to you, it takes about 20-30 seconds to sing that song. It’s the single best way you can fend off a new flu virus. Scrub your mitts with soap under running water for at least 20 seconds after shaking hands with people or touching communal stuff like a bathroom stall.

The sermon today focused on having a path towards leading a good Christian life. He used an old Jewish word which meant catapulted or shot from an arrow, not a slow meandering pace but a fast accurate direction. He stated the Greek term for Sin was missing the mark. So the analogy of an Archer aiming the arrow to hit the bull’s-eye (the Good Christian walk), and missing the whole target = Sin. I only wish in times past I wrote this down, because the way I view my walk has been the same for last 10 years and has not changed much. I wrote it down many times already but never blogged it, I wrote it in personal letters to people. One thing about knowing your walk it is easy to recall and since it has not changed it is fairly easy to write again.
I like to compare my walk to a long and winding highway. The highway is most often just two lane blacktop passing through the country with corn fields and cows, and mostly farmland. It often passes through large towns and cities and becomes 4 lanes and often has many exits as the speed limit also varies from slow to very high speeds. Most of the time I have been able to stay on the pavement heading in the right direction. Choosing the middle lane always seems the best and safest. I stopped smoking and do not drink alcohol very often and when I do it is in moderation never becoming drunk. When trying my best to concentrate on the road up ahead I often notice the farmland gives way to a beautiful scenic forest of evergreens and with large fields of tall grass and wild flowers, it is than I slow down to capture the beauty of the scenery as I drive past. Sometimes something so breathtaking it is worth pulling over and stopping and parking on the soft shoulder. This is similar to seeing a beautiful woman, where I cannot just take a quick glimpse but need a good solid look. So I stop and gaze in wonderment of how a woman can smile at me and how she makes me feel. Still I am on the soft shoulder and Lust has not entered my mind. Yet other times she does not notice me and she walks through the field of tall grass and I can barely see her anymore so I hop the Fence by the soft shoulder of the road. It takes great effort to climb this fence so she really has to be worth the effort, once I climb over the fence I can still the road is close by and not far off. But sometimes the loneliness creeps in and like a large Squid with long tentacles’ it reaches out and grabs a hold of me and pulls me into the tall field of grass, I now can see her again and her beauty is my attraction, as she dances in the field I run now to try and catch her. She now notices me and she laughs and knows my name; “come Joey, come to me, dance with me.” The need for affection and love being so great I listen and obey and run faster trying to catch her. I can no longer see the road as I am heading for the woods, the deep dark Forrest. She is at the entrance of the Forrest and beckons me to follow her in the woods. My heart races as I want her, I can smell her, like a primal beast stalking my prey, I snarl and growl as the animal in me takes over. What was once a man now just a mammal with no modern or trained thought, just raw emotions built up over time. I jump and launch myself into the woods chasing after her, once in the dark woods, impure thoughts and lust take over, I can see creatures looking out, yellow eyes in the darkness, fear is breathing through the air, as I am the hunter and the woman is now my prey. It is than I lose my way, my moral compass is out of whack, I lose track of time and where I am only thinking of her. Minutes, hours, days can go bye, once I devour her, I am satisfied almost like a Lion who takes down a large wildebeest, it gorges itself so full it falls asleep, and when it wakes there is plenty more meat on the carcass. The good news is friends and family and God come looking for the lost and often stumble upon me. “JOE did not know you were in the woods, follow the path we made out of the woods back to the road and get on you bike and drive home” I listen to them and start singing that song, I Once was lost and now I am found, a wicked wretch like me. I find the roadway and now I must go and stay on the road. A feeling of great Joy comes over me, as it overtakes me and once again I realized I have sinned and need to repent. I reach the road and thank God and others from rescuing me. I tell God I am sorry and will try to keep on the road. As I speed down the long road the one we call our Christian walk, I try to keep my eyes focused on the road ahead in the middle lane the safe lane, and once in a while I take short glance over to the beauty on the side of the road.
I am proud to keep on the road the mass majority of the time. We are after all only frail humans who need love and affection and finding it along the road, at the road side rest which is still fenced in near the highway, is often harder to do than hoping the fence and running through the fields into the deep dark woods to play. Putting on horse blinders is no way to live life, having self-control and maintaining it is a daily mission. Some call it your daily Christian walk in life.
As you can see not exactly the bow and arrow shot from the archer hitting the bull’s-eye that I sincerely believe is only for few after all who can honestly say they hit the bull’s-eye dead center every day? Better to think of the Christian walk as a highway and you can change lanes and even stop on the soft shoulder, take a glimpse after all it is not a sin to enjoy the beauty around you. Than you get back on the bike and ride off and merge into the safe lane, the middle lane, and keeps your eyes focused ahead. That is how I view my Christian walk.
No one ever lost their job on Facebook because it is not addicting, never was,
never will be, but MySpace was addicting, so addicting we logged on in the
morning, logged on at work, logged on when we got home, and stay logged on way
past bedtime, and when we were not logged we dreamt about logging on. people
actually lost their jobs, because instead of doing their jobs they risked it all
to log on to MySpace, it was just that fun. you could meet new people, make new
friends and have a blast, What did not work on MySpace – imitating Facebook,
status comments did not work on MySpace, and that is the only thing Facebook
actualy has, sure they might have games and music, and groups, so take note;
WHEN MYSPACE was Addicting FUN, it had bullitins not status comments, it had
HTML comments, it had a incredible Blogging community where there was more
talent on MySpace then all other social media combined. You were able to create
your own profile, you learned HTML, you had music jukebox players, you had
games, like mafia but so much more. Most important you did not have to know the
persons last name, or e-mail address to message or friend them. Try meeting
stranger on Facebook is simply is not going to happen. Facebook is for sharing
things, stories and pictures, BUT GUESS WHAT most of the time you really don’t
want to share stuff with your Uncle or Aunt or close family, and what about
people you went to High School with? Well If they have not found Joe Radgowski
then they sure weren’t looking very hard I take the first 3 pages of Google, not
hard to find, so screw old high school people, you did not need HS people on on
MySpace and I would rather not invite my whole church to my Myspace page, thats
for Facebook Why because facebook only has status comments so you log on and say
what a bad day you had or wake up and tell a funny story how you made coffee but
fogot to put coffee in. NO bring back the MySpace of 2006-07 you will see
bloggers come back and blog contests where comments go on for days as everyone
writes on a specific topic, there use to Music blogs about new bands and such,
people from across the world would come and join in the converstation, next
thing you know they like what you wrote and tell you, next thing you know, you
met a new friend from Australia, or UK or Germany, get rid of the facebook like
button too. My Dad died and people stopped in and hit the like buttton, HUH, if
there is a like button there should be a dislike button, so when your dad dies
people can dislike the fact your dad passed away not hit the LIKE button whats
there to like about your dad dying. Trust me when I say, Myspace use to be FUN
and ADDICTING, why because it was a real social meeting place from around the
world, where strangers shared stuff, and people woud drop a comment with some
flowers or cool graphics just to say Hi. been on MySpace since 05 I wrote a very
throughly researched blogs on how MySpace formed, how it got moving, all the way
to News corp buying it. Facebook is boring, status comment and log off, average
user on Facebook (who does not play games) – 10-15 minutes. Average time a
MySpace user back in 2007 – 4 to 5 hours or more. enough to get you fired
because you just had to find out if someone commented or saw your latest post.
Wish you luck thanks for not closing and Justin is cool so hope he has some good
insights, i wrote a blog about the Movie the Social network, good review of
Justin in it. women, women, sex, and more women. LOL take care thanks for
listenng to my opinion of what works and what didn’t. I AM JOE or scuffer12345
=privacy settings ZERO – WHY becuase if you are afraid of what someone might
think don’t post it. it is just that simple
FUNNY how I am bloggin on this site about the site I use to blog on? why is that? that is the key to the why Myspace has lost its ability to be fun. instead of rewriting and rewriting all the comments i posted all over the web this morning. i will just copy and paste this comment from CNNs wall
