More on Swine flu

Those who are not soccer enthusiasts may not have heard of Sven Goran Eriksson. He was the first non-English manager of the England football club from 2001-2006. He was more successful than some of his predecessors, but never won anything and garnered a lot of adverse publicity from his 'bachelor lifestyle'. After being sacked by England, he managed Manchester City then owned by the billionaire crook who ruled Thailand, and after failing there, he moved on last year to manage Mexico's national team. The results in Mexico were poor and after losing world cup qualifiers against the United States and Honduras, Mexico gave him the bullet on April 2nd.

I saw a reference to a Reuters wire yesterday that said he was now in isolation in a Bologna hospital suffering from flu. Sven flu?

On the other hand when asked whether there would ever be a Black American President one pundit remarked "Pigs might fly."

Obama has been president for 100 days now and what have we got? Swine flew.

Thanks for the jokes! I needed to laugh. I've been sleeping poorly, too, lately. In my case it is my hip hurting, just when I lie down. Many images of various sorts have shown nothing. So, I ask, what's hurting?
Here's hoping you are sleeping better!

What a wonderful and subtle play on words.

I am sorry that you are ill, and I really do wish you all the best Dr. Hamblin.
