The past two days has seen a flurry of media reports on the growingconcerns of a global pandemic of *swine flu* (I know, terrible name,but North American Influenza just doesn’t have the same ring to it).

Travel warnings abound.
Folks either are ignoring them, and planning el cheapo trips to Mexico(if they can still get flights, which are being canceled every day), orthey are looking at what impacts a virus such as this could have ontheir daily lives, and planning appropriately.

You can now map the incidence of the outbreak with google maps.
You can get a checklist of the supplies you may want to have on hand ifthe virus impacts your ability to get *out and about* to restock.
Now that Swine Flu has hit Ontario – it’s beginning to become more important to pay attention to what’s going on.

But my favourite, knowing that I can continue, undisturbed, working remotely – and avoiding the brunt of human contact.
Teleworking, remote working, telecommuting – what ever you want to callit is one of the single best ways to avoid either sharing or beingexposed to anything nasty.
