TRIVIA - INFLUENZA




Did you know that influenza, commonly known as flu, was so named because the cause of the disease was supposedly the evil "influence" of the stars? This "influence" was believed to be the cause of plagues and pestilences.

Me, too, I'd rather stay at home and spend time blogging. We've been experiencing dusty days, the strong desert winds are carrying clouds of dust.
