    Chikungunya

    I've never heard of the chikungunya virus until this morning, but there's a leed article in the Jamaica Gleaner.

    It's mosquito-borne and I'd hate to have it. It appears to be widespread around the world. It's not lethal in the way malaria is, but even so.

    If it can thrive in Jamaica it can do the same in England I'd have thought, we have a similar climate.

    The watch of your vision has become reasonable today.

    England's troubles will increase until the bishops open Joanna Southcott's box.
    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.
    From the upper tier of the Leppings Lane End of the Hillsborough Stadium, I watched the events of that day unfold with horror.
    When the flowers want to oxygen and nutrition, or you’re a wedding or party planner, I will help you too much.

    About time we did separate from the UK, we should be in control ourselves.

    I can't say I've ever heard of the British climate being described as comparable to Jamaica before.

    There may be some similarities when up in the Blue Mountain region to a summer day in Cornwall.

    West Nile I've heard of, but not this..
    I expressly forbid the use of any of my posts anywhere outside of FG (with the exception of the incredibly witty 'get a room already' )posted recently.
    Folks who'd like to copy my intellectual work should expect to pay me for it.

    He'll look daft if there's an outbreak this summer.
