    I was just reading about that. For Christmas, Mr Fuzzy got the new remastered Blue-ray set of Monty Python's Flying Circus. Cleanup, color corrections, etc. OMG it looks beautiful. Guess this is another reason to do a marathon.

    85 today. @Hammer the pain has lessened substantially . I've been drinking gallons of water. Think this is a wakeup call for me where water is concerned. I need to drink a whole lot more than I've been doing. Ironically, it seems this was caused by the antibiotics I took which recommended drinking lots of water which I didn't do. A case of " who don't hear will feel"😁😂

    Mr Fuzzy was a very lucky boy! Monty Python re-runs have been on TV over the Summer holidays . They have given us many years of wonderful entertainment.

    My hubby has this condition, pills called allopurinol taken every day helped - after 6 month he does not have pain or flare ups any more. Last year he had no gout pain at all while in the past it was so bad he once had to crawl on his knees to upstairs bedroom. And it is generic medicine, so its cheap.

    Ahnanimus, while I didn't use cherry juice for the one time I had a mild case of the gout, my brother frequently gets gout, and his doctor told him to drink lots of water and also to drink cherry juice. The one time I had it, it started on a Friday. I remember my brother telling me how he treated his gout, so I just forced myself to drink lots of water, and by Sunday night, the pain was barely noticeable, and by Monday, it was completely gone. As for the cherry juice, I don't know what brands they have where you live, but as an example, here is just one that Amazon carries, and yes, it is a bit expensive, but it is 4 bottles. Again, as with all fruits, it does contain carbs, but I'm not sure how many. If you can't find cherry juice, then sticking with water might be your best option.

    I think it is, so I'm boosting my water intake and also having a 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda in water 3 times a day. I haven't tried the cherries because those that are available are in some sort of syrupy liquid .

    My Spidey Sense must have been acting up or I felt a disturbance in "the force". 97 today. Not 5 minutes later, Kala calls me to inform me she was in a fender bender. She was rear-ended. So far, only some wounded pride and a dinged bumper. Hopefully that is all since I know being rear-ended can sometimes mess you up.

    Ahnanimus, do you think that the pain is gout? If it is gout, then there are two things that you can do to stop the pain. The first is to drink lots of water. If your pain is from a bout of the gout, drinking water will help to break up the uric acid crystals that cause gout. The second thing, is to buy a jar of cherries (the type that you put on top of an ice cream sundae), and drink the juice from them. The problem with doing that, is that there are a lot of carbs in that cherry juice, but it does help with gout.

    You might find this link interesting, Lee... http://www.jacarandainn.com/ Another interesting eucalyptus story here in Hawaii. There is an energy plant that proposes to create a managed forest of eucalyptus trees to furnish as fuel for a wood to energy power plant. The residents are against this plan because they feel this is too archaic. There is some legitimate concern about the gasoline or diesel fuel needed to haul the logs and the increased traffic on the roads. They also worry about the wear and tear on our roads from this increased traffic. The other concern would be the discharge of effluents into the sea. The plant is right on the ocean. Not one watt has been produced and the plant has already been fined for wastewater discharge. For those interested in the details, google Hu Honua power plant.

    One tree thats become a weed in my garden is highly valued in other towns. The Jacaranda tree is a native of the Caribbean & Latin America & is truly beautiful in flower. That house with the nice deck l I was looking at had a lovely view of a Jacaranda tree . The town in which it grows celebrates the flowering season every year & is important to their tourism. https://i3.ytimg.com/vi/Brk92ocip8k/hqdefault.jpg h

    Thanks Mike, interesting reading there over my morning break. Wouldnt this world be amazing if no flora & fauna were introduced to another country..including humans. Our Melaleuca paper barks are doing very, very well in Florida & our Possums are not considered so cute in New Zealand. The typical English garden would be very dull if not for the imports of beautiful flowering plants from China. The Eucalyptus tree has some fantastic modification to continue the survival of their species. The bark is hardened & can tolerate fire, only the damaged trees allow the flame to get inside & destroy it. Some have a modified root system called a lignotuber which will regenerate new suckers after a fire has destroyed its trunk. Each tree produces a massive seed bank of billions of which many will survive the fires.
