I am not sick at the moment, but I have that feeling you get when you are on the "verge" of being sick with a cold. Maybe I have been pushing myself too hard... or more likely it is the plethora of sick people around me lately.... family (wife), co-workers, and students. There must be at least 20 people in my near vicinity who are coughing, hacking, and wheezing that I have been in contact with regularly during the last two weeks. I am going to put up a valiant effort though, and do what I can to thwart off the damn bugs. Let us hope it works.
