Unable to walk very well due to having extreme gout. I have had steroid injections in my ankles and I've been off work this past 4 months. Medication failed and I'm slowly being weaned onto some meds I had previously 20 years ago. All sent to try and all that.
Ay-yi-yi. Is the cause genetic or diet or something else?
It's down to both mate. I have to watch what I eat very carefully.
Best hopes for you to get back to being asskickingly mobile again. :cool:
It may be a little while before I chase any Racoons out of Olaf's garden. Cheers Doc.

Hope you get better soon Marky, gout is horrendous. I saw it first hand as my Dad had it. Hope they are at least keeping the pain at bay.

Get well soon, MD. I'm guessing all these remasters are a nice byproduct of your illness.
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

The old man spoke up in a bar
Said "I never been in prison
A lifetime serving one machine
Is ten times worse than prison"

Ugh, rhyming "prison" with "prison." So close to being a good line.

I was trying to think of another example and only know of one off the top of my head:
I walk these streets
A loaded six-string on my back
I play for keeps 'cause I might not make it back
:shifty:

Talking of rhymes, I love Joe's rhyme of "mafia" with "get 'em out on yer" in All the Young Punks.
