Track That Cold and Flu!11:38 PM
I can't believe it! We are all fairly healthy at my home right now (and that's rare, believe me.) Yes, I get the occasional sniffle, but to have no kids with fevers, coughs, or headaches is a big deal. It just seems like there's ALWAYS cold or flu going around -- even as homeschoolers!
I found a neat new tool from the makers of Triaminic Thin Strips (which is a product that I've been using in my house for years.) It's a Cold and Flu Tracker -- perfect for seeing how many cases of illness are happening in an area near you. (My area in Nebraska was experiencing a moderate level of cases at the time of this review.)
What's even neater than that is an online geek's dream, the buzz tracker for social media platforms like Twitter, Facebook, and Google. It shows a day-to-day trend for key words used to talk about colds and flu. (Did you know that the word "fever" was used 1959 times on Twitter recently?) You can even see how certain search terms are more popular from one day to the next!
There's way more offered on the Triaminic site than I can detail here, but I'll also tell you that there's a Cold and Cough Guide, Allergy Guide, and a rather nifty set of Sick Day Guidelines (every parent should know these!) If you're already using Triaminic Thin Strips, you can save $1.50 off your next purchase by accessing the printable coupon, as well.
Cool tools that all Moms (and Dads) can use? (I'm in.) Visit the Triaminic Tracker site to see all of their available resources.
