Re: Dangerous Virus Affecting Sailors

I caught the virus when I was younger. Now I'm immune.

Re: Dangerous Virus Affecting Sailors

Well I had that disease for more than 2/3rds of my life now I'm trying to get where I can start enjoying that retirement I started receiving back in 94 after doing that virus with the Army for twenty. Now after another 17 years at a few different jobs I now have the STD from Tendonitis in my elbow. With the work I do I can not afford to drop a screwdriver in a hot bucket the arc-flash could kill me I'm just hoping I can get the arm back in shape with going on LTD but we'll see.

Re: Dangerous Virus Affecting Sailors

Too late! I have the WORK disease bad. I may need some serious treatment. The warning came too late, I'm going to start the recommended treatment as soon as I can.

Warn your friends,this could seriously compromise sailing....
I have just started my holistic treatment. It's a 80 day course (I have 79 days left). You start the course with only a letter which must have the following line: "The effective date of my retirement is......" You can fill in any date you like, it is always effective in the treatment of this life sapping virus. This course can be as short as you can make it, the shorter the better. It will work with or without the afore mentioned B.A.R, W.I.N.E, B.E.E.R. or V.O.D.K.A. vaccines, but they do not affect the outcome.
