    • Hello TokyoSand. I was in my allergist office when I read and posted that, so told them about it. They were freaking out. What I found interesting is after all these Zombie shows and movies, we now have the real possibility of Zombies. Hugs

  2. Scottie have you ever been to small town Tennessee? The freaking zombies have been with us for a long time 😉

    Though I must admit this is an interesting development. And not in a good way…

    • Hello Shelldigger. Sadly I have not even driven through the good state of Tennessee. But I have seen a bunch of shows on NetFlix that must have been filmed there with all the zombies in them. 🤣😂😁😃😜😜😜 Hugs

  3. Hmmm, I just read a write up on the issue and they claimed it was ok to still hunt/ eat deer because it is easy to tell if a deer has the CWD (Chronic Wasting Disease) But it also mentions that it takes years for the symptoms to develop once exposed. Those statements appear contradictory to my my way of looking at things.

    • Hello Shelldigger. I agree that is screwed up. The Piron thing is what causes mad cow disease. You eat a cow that has that you get it. If you eat these deer you become the zombie. That is nothing I want to take a chance with. Hugs
