Did nothing for me, & I have arthritis everywhere.

Comment was by Stephen Brodie on May 16, 2022 at 10:30pm

As a sceptic, I'm loath to ask my fellow sceptics about Arthritis Copper Magnetic bracelets a couple of friends tell me that they swear by them and even my doctor wears one. The pain in my wrists due to arthritis is getting worse. Does anyone on AU have the experience of using them? 

Comment was by Mrs.B on May 16, 2022 at 10:09pm

I'll have a look for that, thanks, Stephen.

Comment was by Stephen Brodie on May 16, 2022 at 10:05pm

I've read"The Necessity of Atheism" by Percy Bysshe Shelley, but I was never sure I did his writing justice. Hence, I decided to reread it but this time on Audible with it being narrated by a much better speaker. I'm only into it for ten minutes and already I'm enjoying it immensely.

 Ian enjoys your pie n mash, but there are many fewer second-hand bookshops on the Charing X Road now.

Comment was by Mrs.B on May 11, 2022 at 3:31pm

Looks like a fun walk.

Comment was by Ian Mason on May 11, 2022 at 12:03pm

Thanks, Stephen. I used to know the area a bit but it's changed in the past 40 years. 

I'm off to England tomorrow. 3 days in Suffolk with my brother and his family, 2 days in Herts with a friend and 1½ days in London where I want to go wild in the second-hand book shops of the Charing X road and, for the first time in years, have pie, mash and eels.

Ian. Here's the latest Joolz Guide vid where he along an abandoned railway line turned into a park trail.

Sciatica is horrible! I suffered most of it when I lived in a damp apartment on the ground floor. I hope you find a treatment, Ian!

Comment was by Stephen Brodie on May 10, 2022 at 3:39pm

Ian. No Labour Party leader could get a fair hearing from the Daily mail. Sorry to hear about your Sciatica, back pain is just awful
