  1. But think of the many years you shared. Lots of memories.
  2. And here I thought this was a sushi thread.
  3. ... take a cooler to church? ... clean your ears in public, if you are using your OWN truck key? ... offer to bait your date's hook, especially on the first date?
  4. Did Matt have the Long Branch for Miss Kitty? Inquiring minds...
  5. I give it to my dogs, just in case... I know orthopedists who recommend it to people, just in case... It can't hurt, but it probably won't help. I certainly don't denigrate anyone who takes it. We don't know everything in medicine, and a health care provider who says they do is a fool.
  6. True, a small study group. However, there are many supporting articles. Arthritis Research did a review of various studies and found: Finally, it is important to note that the majority of the published clinical trials with glucosamine reported a significant ratio of subjects who failed to respond to treatment. Therefore, the question of the benefit of glucosamine treatment remains largely unanswered. One may wonder about the clinical relevance of this treatment and whether to use it with regards to the cost/benefit ratio. It doesn't hurt to take the supplement, but to me it is money down the drain. You know about the placebo effect.
  7. A 2016 study of glucosamine and chondroitin enrolled 164 patients with knee pain due to osteoarthritis and gave half of them a combination of glucosamine and chondroitin; the other half received an identical placebo pill. The study was stopped early for an unusual reason: those taking the supplement actually reported worse symptoms than those taking a placebo. This raises the possibility that taking glucosamine and chondroitin might make your joints feel worse than doing nothing.
  8. We tried watching 1883. Just couldn't get into it. 1923 is great.
  9. Pshaw! Everyone knows The Conqueror was his best film.
