The flu is more serious than a common cold. Many people with flu are forced to rest in bed for a week or more, which means they can't go to work or take care of their family or themself. Seniors are considered "at risk" of complications from the flu, the illness can be much more series and can lead to hospitalisation.
You cannot get the flu from the vaccine. There is no live virus in the vaccine. You can spread flu before you feel any symptoms or even know that you have got the flu (one sneeze can spread flu up to one metre.) See your doctor and ask about the best way for you to reduce the risk of the flu. For further information: www.flu.com.au
I urgently needed a few days off work, but, I knew the Boss would not allow me to take leave. I thought that maybe if I acted 'Crazy' then he would tell me to take a few days off.
So I hung upside-down on the ceiling and made funny noises. My co-worker (who's blonde) asked me what I was doing. I told her that I was pretending to be a light bulb so that the Boss might think I was 'Crazy' and give me a few days off.
A few minutes later the Boss came into the office and asked, 'What in the name of goodness are you doing?'
I told him I was a light bulb.
He said, 'You are clearly stressed out.' Go home and recuperate for a couple of days.'
I jumped down and walked out of the office...
When my co-worker (the blonde) followed me, the Boss asked her, 'And where do you think you're going?!'
She said, "I'm going home, too. I can't work in the dark".

It was mealtime during a flight on a British Airways plane. "Would you like dinner?" the flight attendant asked the man seated in the front row.
"What are my choices?" the man asked.
"Yes or No," she replied.
It wasn't until 1927 that every state observed a public holiday for the first time for ANZAC Day. By mid 1930's all the rituals we now associate with the day, dawn vigil, marches, memorial services, reunions, and "two up" games were firmly entrenched.
ANZAC Day in Australia is the anniversary of the first major military action fought by Australian and New Zealand forces during the First World War.
Australians come together on ANZAC Day and spend time remembering the sacrifices of those who died in war protection our country.
The words to the haunting melody, we know as the "The Last Post" used at military funerals words:
Day is Done, Gone the sun,
From the lakes, From the hills, From the sky.
All is well, Safely rest, God is nigh
Fading light, Dims the sight, And a star.
Gems the sky, Gleaming bright, From afar
Drawing nigh, Falls the night
Thanks and praise, For our days,
Neath the sun, Neath the stars, Neath the sky
As we go, This we know, God is nigh
Lest We Forget

The policeman got out of his car and the teenager he stopped for speeding rolled down his window. "I've been waiting for you all day," the Cop said.
The kid replied, "Well I got here as fast as I could."
When the policeman finally stopped laughing, he sent the kid on his way without a ticket.
