China and Swine Flu

Don't know if this is just a sick coincidence, but....

2007 - Chinese year of the Chicken - Bird Flu Pandemic devastates parts of Asia.
2008 - Chinese year of the Horse - Equine Influenza decimates Australian horse racing.
2009 - Chinese year of the Pig - Swine Flu Pandemic kills hundreds of people around the globe.

Has any one else noticed this?

Next year, 2010 - Chinese year of the Cock - what could possibly go wrong?

Hi,

Next year, 2010 - Chinese year of the Cock - what could possibly go wrong?

May I suggest it is used to raise awareness of Bladder Cancer, Prostate Cancer, HPV & Clamidia.

NEVER, NEVER, NEVER:
Ignore symptoms or settle for being fobbed off.
Considerr Piers Merchant's untimely death and a friend of mine diagnosed withing a week of presenting was informed he had 2-3 months ONLY.

Piers was 58, Peter is 61!

It may be an apt time to point out that children are a great comfort in your old age and help you get there faster!

I understand that The Year of The Dragon is not considered propitious for marriage!
