I wonder if Roman knows he is ranting on the wrong thread? Oh well, we have room for everybody here. The cake sounds good, but to get cake and ice cream I would have to go shopping and I’m not about to do that voluntarily. As for being proud of me for helping, change those words to; you fill in the blanks. The problem is I am married to a turbo. When she feels ill or gets a migraine she “works it off” by doing a lot of housework. This has not been a problem until the operations began and I became her “replacement” Regardless, because of her I am a better person and becoming more productive as time goes on.

Part of this I owe to the miracle drink that I discovered on the Daily Mail newsite (U.K.). I read an article about a 50 year old woman with arthritis who got so bad she had to leave her full time job and could not play the organ at her church any longer. Somewhere she read about a woman who had the same problem and as a student nurse in the 1960’s and had to quit school in the middle of her studies. She was desperate and couldn’t get any help from the medical profession, so she apparently looked up some old home cures and found one that actually worked so well that she completed here studies and lived happily ever after (providing she took the miracle drink every day). The 50 year old did the same and she is now back on the job and playing the organ again and claims to be totally free of her arthritis. Since they published the story I suppose her amazing recovery was documented by a reporter (or not)? I have no idea.

Well, to say that I am skeptical to such stories and claims would be a gross understatement! However, the ingredients of the drink seemed to me to be completely harmless, so I thought to myself, what have I got to lose? The recipe was simple: 2 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar mixed with 2 teaspoons of honey in boiling water and taken 4 times a day (sweet and sour tea). My type of arthritis is associated with psoriasis. Not a real bad psoriasis, but not very comfortable and the arthritis with not much disfiguration, but a lot of pain over the last 30 years in just about every joint, and badly damaged disks in the spine. All this makes you kind of tired and ornery. After about a week of taking this drink, my psoriasis disappeared completely and after about a month now it hasn’t returned. Coincidence? Who knows? Also my joints are still pretty stiff but the pain is 90% gone too, except for my back which nothing will help, ever. In addition I am suddenly no longer lazy! My wife is dumbfounded and probably suspects I’m my long lost twin brother or something. Maybe it’s just the sugar in the honey. I don’t know, but it good to have energy again and not feel exhausted all the time.

Am I recommending this to others? Certainly not. If I stay better for a whole year, maybe. We’ll see. The main thing is that I am re-energized for the shop and have a new lease on life, at least for now. That’s it.
