The symptoms recur because the pathogen can hide in nerve cells for a long time and then leap out.
But a more extreme form of the disease (herpes gladiatorum) occurs among athletes who take part in close-contact sports, such as sumo, rugby and judo. ~~
I can understand their want to try a homemade recipe of explosives, but it's not much fun if you aren't even there to see it go off.
They should have done their community hours with Mythbusters.
Myth: Canadian Tire mailboxes can take the blow better than homemade mailboxes.
Fact or Fiction.

~~in the wake of a serious car accident involving a wrestler the Association banned wrestlers from driving their own cars. Breaking the rules can result in fines and/or suspension, not only for the offending wrestler, but also for his stablemaster.~~
If a woman over 40 doesn't want to watch the game, she doesn't sit around whining about it. She does something she wants to do, and it's usually more interesting.
Women over 40 are dignified. They seldom have a screaming match with you at the opera or in the middle of an expensive restaurant.
Of course, if you deserve it, they won't hesitate to shoot you if they think they can get away with it.
Older women are generous with praise, often undeserved. They know what it's like to be unappreciated.
Women get psychic as they age. You never have to confess your sins to a woman over 40.
Once you get past a wrinkle or two, a woman over 40 is far sexier than her younger counterpart. Older women are forthright and honest. They'll tell you right off if you are a jerk if you are acting like one. You don't ever have to wonder where you stand with her.

The Hubble telescope was launched into space on April 24th, 1990 aboard the space shuttle Discovery.
Did you know: The Hubble telescope is almost the size of a school bus and can fit inside of a space shuttle cargo bay?
The Hubble can't observe Mercury or the Sun.
The Hubble gets its energy from the Sun through 2 solar panels.

Her name is Leta-Marie Belle Adams. So proud to finally see her, and to see her parents welcome her into their world, I have nothing much to say.
Life itself is a miracle.

First, the mobile poll at work was chaotic. In the past 6 weeks they have asked me twice for a list of residents, yet 6 of them never made their voters list. Friday I had to complete 25 papers to attest that they indeed live here AND today they wanted a health card PLUS their voters card to verify that indeed they were who they claimed to be. Lots of crap, and paper work for nothing.
So, I head out to my own poll, prepared with my health card in pocket. I know my polling number, but my card is at home. The lady at the "shredding" box, will not let me in to vote because she needs more proof of who I am. I have known her for 42 years. Who the heck does she think I am? I left, and returned with some more ID. I had a good mind to leave. I am finally past the poll-ice station, and am now at the friendly polling desk, where they say hi Charlene! Is your husband around to vote today? We chit chat, and again they ask for ID. I know that in an urban setting, it is necessary, but.....
I was irked.
I have gotten into different countries with less trouble.

Today I was thinking about that baby boy I had in October. He's so grown now, and still cute as ever.
When I was 11 weeks pregnant, I had started to bleed quite a bit. Upset, I figured I was losing the baby. I had an ultrasound, and the results would be given to me by the doctor the next morning.
At the doctor's office Loverboy decided he'd wait in the waiting room, while I went in. Inside the office, the news was great, & all was fine with the baby. Something had bled, no danger to the pregnancy, and I may bleed again. Not to worry.
Outside the office, my eyes met his, and I could not speak. I knew I would cry, and my eyes teared up. Inside the elevator, a teary-eyed husband held his wife, and she surprised him with the words : " the baby is fine".
It was April fools day, and he's been a joker ever since. Always eager for love and attention.

Tonight, I did register successfully. Very easy. Like "feed the children" would say... come on, make the call. Click on the link below.
Here's a replay of my phone conversation to my best friend Superwoman. I called her at work.
Hello, "superwoman" speaking, finance manager.
Hi it's Charlene ! I was thinking we should do something great for our birthdays this year. Don't you agree?
Yes I agree, what' have you got in mind ?
Well there's a seat sale to Iceland. Real good deal from Boston to Iceland, return. We could fly Boston on our airmiles, then fly to Iceland. Leave on a Wednesday, and return on Sunday. Sit in the hot springs and rejuvenate by 10 years , they claim. We could see the northern lights really well, and daylight is only from 10:30am to 4pm in November.
Superwoman? Are you there? ( I can hear something in the background)
Through the laughter she says " Sorry, you must have the wrong number".
