A few years back I worked with a Navy Sr. Chief that got pulled off flight status due to gout. He drank a bunch of tart cherry juice (the flight doc said tart, not dark) and got back up in the plane in weeks. So I know it works. I've been drinking it as a preventive measure ever since.

This treatment has reduced my recovery time from 3-7 weeks to 2-3 days.

The I cured my gout web site, while rambling at times, has some really good tips for dealing with gout attacks.

As for wine: Stay away from white wine and any food high in uric acid.

I hope all athletes do well in Sochi. I have fond memories of 4 years ago, when the city I live in was getting ready for Olympic joy, glory and celebrations. And just when I started to feel kind of sad about the fact that Vancouver's time of Olympic glory is now over, I remembered Nodar Kumaritashvili's deadly accident on the luge track and I simply cannot imagine how sad his family must feel during these Olympic games...

Read an article yesterday as well as heard a news account of the incident where a 22 lb. Himalayan cat scratched the baby and then kept the family hunkered down in their bedroom, forcing them to call 9-11 for rescue. Yes, 9-11 responded, captured the family pet, and got the family out of the bedroom.

The result -- the family is fine and the feline has been returned to the family. The family is seeking psychological help for the cat because it has exhibited this behavior previously.

Does this story remind you of a departed bb member's wife's occupation that some of us chuckled about?

Never has a man influenced physics so profoundly as Niels Bohr in the early 1900ís.
Going back to this time period, little was known about atomic structure; Bohr set out
To end the obscurity of physics. However, things didnít come easy for Bohr. He had to
Give up most of his life for physics and research of many hypothesis. But, this is why
You and I have even heard of the quantum theory and atomic structures. Bohr came
Up with his quantum theory while studying at Cambridge. Bohr was a sceptic and he
never truly believed in Max Planckís old quantum theory. He put forth the idea that,
going from one high-energy orbit to a lower one, an electron could, in fact, be trying
to emit a quantum of discrete energy. Bohr was critized for this idea, but he didnít
let up. Soon after, Bohr said his famed quote, ĎíIf quantum mechanics hasnít shocked
you, you havenít understood it yet.íí This quote is extremely famous and has gone
down as the motto for quantum physicistís around the world. Understandably, Bohr
never won a Nobel price outside of physics (of which he only won one). Bohrís still
going strong with his theories on atomic structure; he allowed for 100ís of scientists
to fully experiment with the cell and its many components. Bohr was largely on the
run from the *nazees when he came up with this discovery, which is amazing because
around this time, Bohrís home country of Denmark was invaded by the *nazees. Bohr
and Ernest Rutherford are given credit, but it is believed that Rutherford decided to
desert Bohr in the middle of their work. Rutherford once, quite famously said that
you should never bet against the wonders of science. Niels Bohrís famous career
never really kicked off until he was forty years old. Most other major scientists were
going all on to improve and update the atomic theory. Although scientists clearly want
to improve on Bohrís theory, many famous physicists come out publicly and openly
say that Bohrís ideas will never be improved upon, todays society cannot say
goodbye to an opportunity to improve our understanding of the sciences. If Bohr
never had silenced his critics, we would still be following Planckís theories, and
going on incomplete information. Bohrís later life was all occupied when he decided
to go back to Denmark and head the royal Danish academy. His main goal was to
tell the world of the greatness of the Danish sciences and most likely educate
a new crop of scientists for years to come. There is controversy surrounding Bohrís
lie during his stint in the Manhattan project. Though he claimed to be anti-violence
and a peace-seeker, Bohr engineered on the Manhattan project. Though he didnít
hurt anyone directly, thousands of people died. Niels Bohr opened many doors for
you and I in the physics world, he will go down as one of the greatest Physicists.

WESTMORELAND. O that we now had here
But one ten thousand of those men in England
That do no work to-day!

KING. Whatís he that wishes so?
My cousin Westmoreland? No, my fair cousin;
If we are markíd to die, we are enow
To do our country loss; and if to live,
The fewer men, the greater share of honour.
Godís will! I pray thee, wish not one man more.
By Jove, I am not covetous for gold,
Nor care I who doth feed upon my cost;
It yearns me not if men my garments wear;
Such outward things dwell not in my desires.
But if it be a sin to covet honour,
I am the most offending soul alive.
No, faith, my coz, wish not a man from England.
Godís peace! I would not lose so great an honour
As one man more methinks would share from me
For the best hope I have. O, do not wish one more!
Rather proclaim it, Westmoreland, through my host,
That he which hath no stomach to this fight,
Let him depart; his passport shall be made,
And crowns for convoy put into his purse;
We would not die in that manís company
That fears his fellowship to die with us.
This day is callíd the feast of Crispian.
He that outlives this day, and comes safe home,
Will stand a tip-toe when this day is namíd,
And rouse him at the name of Crispian.
He that shall live this day, and see old age,
Will yearly on the vigil feast his neighbours,
And say ďTo-morrow is Saint Crispian.Ē
Then will he strip his sleeve and show his scars,
And say ďThese wounds I had on Crispianís day.Ē
Old men forget; yet all shall be forgot,
But heíll remember, with advantages,
What feats he did that day. Then shall our names,
Familiar in his mouth as household words-
Harry the King, Bedford and Exeter,
Warwick and Talbot, Salisbury and Gloucester-
Be in their flowing cups freshly remembíred.
This story shall the good man teach his son;
And Crispin Crispian shall neíer go by,
From this day to the ending of the world,
But we in it shall be remembered-
We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother; be he neíer so vile,
This day shall gentle his condition;
And gentlemen in England now-a-bed
Shall think themselves accursíd they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
That fought with us upon Saint Crispinís day.

Cool

It's St. Crispin's feast, not St. Crispian's.

Physics is never boring.

Did you know the 4C is being built in the Maser plant in Bologna? I tried to get a lookee loo pass while here in IT but no joy.

Too much on topic in here. Watch it. We'll get Gordy all over us.

And Bob, I'll have to give some poetic license to Ol' Bill Shakespeare. He's rit more stuff than me. And most of it was pretty good.

I think the "Crispian" was a typpo--they happen.

Old Will was very, very good, but confused on a couple of things.

On physics--there is no such thing as a "false dawn" as in "Romeo and Giulietta". It is either dark or getting lighter. The advance of daylight is relentless and does not take two, or more, starts.

On women-- "The Taming of the Shrew"

Unrealistically optimistic.

Gotta agree with Bob on those Larry. In the Service we had O'DarkO'clock and daylight. Of course Shrew's may have changed since Willy's day. Mine was completely untameable, and I'm a GOOD animal trainer, horses, dogs, wild birds, squirrels, skunks, deer, and even those 50 cent piece size dock spiders in Wisconsin. Fortunately my ex Shrew now "plans" to marry her divorce lawyer. And a great time will be had by all!
