Not sure if you've heard - it's been on the news here and there - but there's some kind of flu thing going around in China and it's, like, a super big huge deal right now.
It's currently feeling pretty WE'RE ALL GONNA DIE!!!!!!!!!!!! all up in this place, y'all.
So much so that just today I've gotten two emails from different places telling me not to eat chicken or eggs. And on top of that, my ayi informed that she, also, doesn't want us eating chicken or eggs.
I negotiated with her. I told her that the chicken already long ago bought and placed in our freezer is proabably fine and that I'm okay with us eating it. However, I'm thinking whatever eggs I have on hand are the end of the eggs for... I don't know how long. I will be rationing them from here on out until things calm down here, chicken-products-wise.
On top of that, today my sons' school sent out an email saying that they have suspended serving chicken in school lunches. That they will revise the menu, and will get back to us on what the new, chicken-free menu will look like for this month.
This whole no-chicken thing is going to be hard for China. Because, seriously - chicken and chicken products are a big deal and are eaten A LOT. I mean, check it:
So, you know: CHICKEN.
It's what's NOT for dinner.

What else is going on here?
James was recently in Cambodia for about a week at A Work Thing. He really, really liked Cambodia. He was in Phnom Penh, and he soaked in the sunshine and the great air. GREAT air. He got to see some good, good friends (you know who you are!!) and he got to take a couple of pictures while he was there.
In Cambodia, he got to ride in a tuk-tuk for the first time, which he said was quite an adventure. He even took some video, but I can't post it because I can't get to YouTube because I don't have a VPN.
ANYWAY, he said there were tons of people all around - just like in China:
And then he left Cambodia and came back to China.
Lucky guy, LOL.
