I'm keeping these in the basement so we don't use them by mistake.

In addition, I bought some masks and latex gloves. Out in the avian flu blogosphere, there is quite a bit of controversy about what kind of masks to buy. I got one box (20 masks) of the N95 NIOSH-approved type. These are the kind they use in hospitals. Others, say NANO-masks are better. I ordered NANO-masks from the internet about a month ago and I haven't received them yet. I think they are on back-order but who knows. I'm not sure that I ordered from the best site.
