AT&T is giving customers a $5 credit each to compensate for the widespread service outage last week. An incredibly contagious stomach virus, norovirus, is sweeping through the northeastern US causing widespread illness. Severe stomach pain, violent diarrhea and vomiting are the symptoms. This virus has resulted in school closings in major cities such as New York. Over 10% of the population in states such as Pennsylvania, New Jersey and New York have tested positive for the virus. Contaminated foods and beverages especially where there isn't the best hygiene are to blame plus confined spaces such as classrooms and offices. Wash your hands often and prepare foods carefully. There is no vaccine. 2,184 passengers and 1,026 crew members are stuck on a Norwegian Cruise Line ship off the coast of Mauritius due to a mystery illness. The cruise line claims that just "a small number" of passengers were sick; but all are being quarantined due to a stomach illness. 23 days until spring. Breakfast - PB&J sandwich Lunch - Protein bar Dessert/Snack - None Dinner - Orange chicken and rice (YUM!) What did you eat yesterday? Photo Credit: Pixabay

Did you have a microwave in your room? That's always nice.

@LindaOHio Still in 40's here at night but inching on up there. Chilly mornings but we have been hitting upper 60's during the day. I can handle that!! But we have rain coming in again with high percentage every day for a week. More cloudy and dreary days...BOO!

I avoid to order food because my fear is that people have very poor hygiene. I have heard many complaining of stomach pain and diarrhea.

These stomach bugs that occur on cruise ships have put me off going on any more.

I am one of those customers and I admit I had to laugh out loud at their offer. $5? Hmm. For dinner I made brats on the grill and we had salad on the side.

@LindaOHio I guess I had it wrong and thought they were referring to the Internet service of U-Verse, but I guess it was cell service. I do not use AT&T for cell service, so I will get nothing.

Five dollars?! That is insanely low, isn’t it. Yesterday, I had beef panang, Thai dumplings, jello cake, popcorn, and an orange.

I wish there was a better way to deal with food safety. Just as I was making plans to venture out more once spring came now I feel better just staying in my apartment. I also think I am better off with the frozen food I use. Anyway I had pork patties, tater tots, canned seasoned lima beans fried in a pan with BBQ sauce, It was good,
