Spill the Milk!

On the bad milk tip, Boston has issued a warning about "possibly contaminated milk". []

It seems the bacteria is a little more than just popular paranoia.

Innocently enough all these symptoms bear a striking resemblance to my 3-weeks-ago experience.
Symptoms of the disease include fever, muscle aches, and sometimes nausea or diarrhea. Most people exposed to the bacterium suffer only mild, flu-like symptoms, but the germ can prove deadly to those with underlying medical conditions.
Good thing I treated it when I did. This no more:

I have yet to understand a parent's need to photograph their children in the toilet. Although I was (am?) quite the congenial pooper, no? Heh.
