1. Bah!

I dug lots of clams and a picked a bunch of oysters in a supposed red zone of Puget Sound last week. Enough for four meals. Tasted great, no illness.

3. Well, I live in the Puget Sound area and recently got over a nasty intestinal something or other

 

...took me two weeks to shake that bug or whatever it was. I haven't eaten any shellfish recently though, so damned if I know how I could get that.
