"Are you quite sure that fish was fresh...?

I'm feeling a bit queasy this morning."
-overheard on the train platform at Bath, the morning after the second of us had come down with the "Winter Vomiting Virus," endemic in Britain, and currently shutting down hospital wings all over the country. In the US, it is the disease of preschoolers and the families of preschoolers - why?

Poor handwashing.

Yes, dirty British hands had us throwing up in some of the poshest towns in the UK.
