Thank you so much to all our listeners who posted their suggestions on Facebook on how to stay healthy. Both Roy Sullivan and Tim Tern, the former intern are sick and I need ways to stay healthy and avoid going to the doctor's!

Some of our listeners posted on Facebook that I stay home and broadcast my part of the show from my living room - I like that! However, poor Joel Mariacher, he posted: "Do what I've done.... Stay away from the sick folks. My wife and 4 kids are all sick. 2 walking pneumonia, 2 flu, 1 bronchitis. I've stayed at work for 3 straight days. Not going home. Good luck 2K" It's more like, 'Good luck to you, Joel!"
