    Yeah, that wasn't fun for the missus. Yersinia it's called. Common in animals, but we don't have pets and he hadn't been around animals for a bit before that, so mouse it the most likely culprit.

    Mice is something you most certainly don't want around babies. Babies do need to be exposed to non lethal pathogens to develop their immune system.
    But the bugs from mice and rats is something we probably wanna avoid, babies or grownups.
    There was whooping cough epidemic in Sydney last year and the year before. These bugs come and go.

    If you have a mice problem, do take care of it asap. It's money well spent.
    Mice need to live as well, but it's not possible for us to share a house with them.

    Yeah, that Yersinia bug is not a fun one according to google. It's not specific to kids either, so you folks might have it even
    though you don't have the symptoms(Remember Typhoid Mary?).

    I'm not a big fan of giving antibiotics to babies, but there is no choice these days with some of these bugs.

    Bit of an update on my post from 4/8 #10346

    Got my caravan out in the nick of time, they bulldozed a metre high mound of topsoil three metres behind my back fence. Promptly cut down about six gums, two of which were dead (I was waiting for them to fall over and collect the wood). They had all the necessary paperwork, it's a safety issue. I was hoping they would leave the wood for me but no they loaded it into the truck. The contractors are fine, great to talk to and just doing their job, it's Vicroads and the local council.

    Monday they had a bit of an issue, rolled a compactor and that stopped work for the day. Luckily no injuries, but a very expensive day for them. Cranes, trucks, workcover etc. They then had to shutdown due to the weather.

    Cheers

    Recently travelled Goog's track for the second time. Listening in on the uhf as a group towing camper trailers joked as they struggled to get up the dunes. Eventually caught up with them and after chatting with them found that they hadn't dropped their tyre pressures AND were only using 4wd once they couldn't go any further. No wonder the track was so much more chopped up compared to last year. Two weeks later we did a west to east crossing of the Simpson Desert . While having lunch at Poeppel's corner two idiots ( sorry I have to call them idiots ) on motorbikes rode out onto the salt lake in front of marker and proceed to do "wheelies" and rip up the lake's surface . Later I was talking to a tour guide and he told me that he encountered a group in 4wds doing an east - west crossing who were trying to see who could get the futhurest out into the desert / up the dunes without using 4wd. He can see a time in the near future when the desert will be closed to all traffic for 10 yrs simply because of the actions of a few idiots. Once again a minority spoiling it for the majority.
    Remember that a high IQ doesn't make up for a lack of common sense.
    Learn from the mistakes of others - you won't live long enough to make them all yourself !
