Sauerkraut Sunday: The Bird Flue Edition

Sauerkraut Sunday: The Bird Flue Edition

When you think of Bird Flu you probably panic, but I have good news. According to the Sun in the UK, 11 out of 13 chickens with avian flu that were fed sauerkraut showed signs of improvement within a week. See, what would you do without me and this blog?

On to the real purpose of Sauerkraut Sundays… As I go through the week, I use Twitter to send out little updates and links.  I realize that I do this quite a bit and that not all of you use Twitter, so with that in mind I’d like to take Sunday to do sort of a week in review.  I’ve selected the most useful of my tweets from the last week and placed them in to the categories that I use in this blog.
