Blog info

Just want to let you know that I have not been responding to my blog comments or to yours. I came down with a kick ass case of the gout. It hit the other night and has affected my right hand primarily the joint above my index finger. This makes my typing as well as my work with the mouse a bit of a challenge. I have been reading your blog posts and will comment as soon as this bout ends.

  16. Hope you're on the mend Alan. FYI - Reduce your red meat intake and eat cherries/drink cherry juice. I have a friend who battled gout for decades. He now takes a shotglass of cherry juice every morning and hasn't had an episode since.

  17. Hope you feel better soon Alan. Add my kudos to the cherries and cherry juice regimen, haven't had any flare ups in the past 7 months since starting on it.
