Jenner snippet!

Birdie I'm writing this snippet because of the "boidy-flu" threat!

Bet you never knew this: A long time ago a fellow called Jenner decided to have a go at stopping nasty illnesses. At the time things like cow-pox and the plague were circulating from place to place, not very nice, but this Jenner fellow noticed that certain of his poorer patients (the kids of slave farmers) who worked with cows a lot, and who often caught the "cow-pox" which made them very ill, but rarely killed them, seemed never to catch any of the other things, more serious, if they had had the cow-pox!

Ergo - give 'em all the cow-pox and they'll all get better! And it worked!!!

Did you know that it why we call a jab a "Vaccination" nowadays? "VACCI" from the Latin word for cow!!!

Amazing all the things I know, isn't it? Now all you guys know that cows not only give us milk, moo a lot, can give us the pox etc., but they can also heal us! So let's take care of our Vaccis - huh?

I only did this piece really to try the photo loader from Blogger, so if it wotks, then here is my offering:
