Click the header or suffer a lack of smiles today.
Yeah, I know the article in the paper is not exactly in agreement with the header, but hey, what's poetic licence all about?
"We should be careful to get out of an experience only the wisdom that is in it - and stop there, lest we be like the cat that sits down on a hot stove-lid.
"She will never sit down on a hot stove-lid again, and that is well; but she will also never sit down on a cold one anymore."-- Mark Twain
Some news that might have something to do with Asian, er, Mexican Flu:
Chinese restaurants flush with mouse meat
Nutritious but potentially illness-inducing field mice are finding their way onto restaurant dinner plates in parts of China.
"The trucks carrying mice arrive at 4 a.m. and all the goods can be sold out before 7 a.m.," a mouse broker said of the delicacy. Shipments of mice are being delivered daily from Hunan Province to restaurants in Fanyu, Zhaoqing, Dongguan and Nanhai in Guangdong Province, the broker said.
The shipments increased from just one delivery a week last year, after flooding in central China forced an estimated 2 billion field mice from their holes near Dongting Lake, China Daily reported.
Nutritious mouse meat is packed with protein and minerals, but health officials in Guangzhou -- where mouse meat was officially banned in 2003 -- warned it could carry infectious diseases.
