I think I’ve been exposed to this. It seems to affect the memory and it also, if I am not mistaken, affects the memory.

James,
I believe you are suffering from C.R.S. syndrome! It seems to be prevalent in the state of New Hampshire and I also believe it is highly contagious. I have been told that you can transmit it through the Internet!

Hi Ken,
That is an excellent article.I will add it to my library. As a grandfather, I thank you for taking the time to do this research for us!

Folks, encephalitis is worth worrying about in this business.

I got it 3.5 years ago. Wildly varying fever and occasional loss of conciousness. Scared the **** out of me and my family. Creamed my memory and I am now slightly dyslexic.

No kidding.
