Antiques and Swine Flu

It is not clear how serious this flu is going to be. His worry is that gatherings would be banned and his beloved antique fairs might suffer! A bit of a narrow view.

The Victorians had many medical inventions where quirkiness seemed to rule over commonsense. As Mouse points out they were deadly serious about some of them. Mouse likes these pages which give you a real insight of their variety and weirdness.

Mouse hopes that nothing too serious comes of it all. In the meantime Mouse suggests you wash your paws and cover your mouth, nose and whiskers when you sneeze. A piece of cheese cake does no harm either.
