Disambiguation link notification for July 6[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Kamaka Stillman, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Equestrian (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Mauna Loa[edit]

Hey, any chance you'd like to work that wiki-magic over at Mauna Loa? It's vaguely close to being of the standard of the FA star it carries, after extensive work I did ages ago related to its Geology and Eruptive history sections. A lot has to be written about human history, which I can't get a good grasp for writing, unfortunately; and about its ecology, which is easy enough but not something I've gotten around to.

I have a whole never-to-be-finished thing about this going on here. ResMar 05:06, 22 July 2015 (UTC)

Been offline for a while now...[edit]

Been offline for a week now and wanted to just drop a note here to say I should be back in the next few days or so. Slight Gout issue but not in my toe but my knee and it tends to get stuck in the joints there when that happens. Knees are pretty important aren't they?--Mark Miller (talk) 17:25, 15 August 2015 (UTC)

Glad to hear you are doing better. My understanding is that dietary changes can greatly ameliorate gout issues. Have you looked into the nutritional aspects? Viriditas (talk) 19:46, 15 August 2015 (UTC)
Yes. Extensively actually. I am currently treating my gout exclusively by diet. Unfortunately, each August the pressures change drastically in Northern California after the summer solstice. We have had major weather changes over the last two weeks and it tends to attack old injuries. I have an old sewing injury. Seriously. LOL! I once dropped a straight pin while sewing a costume and dropped to my knees to look for it and...wouldn't you know it, it was right where my knee landed. Could be a sports injury. No....had to be a sewing injury. LOL!--Mark Miller (talk) 01:52, 16 August 2015 (UTC)
Wow, that sounds painful!  :) Do you ever wear those flexible, elastic braces to immobilize the knee? I hear they can help quite a bit and you can find them in just about every pharmacy now. What do you do about the pain? Which do you prefer, hot or cold baths? Viriditas (talk) 21:46, 17 August 2015 (UTC)
Absolutely swear by hot baths. I remember something my old physical therapist said when I sprained my ankle real bad. Hot and old is good for swelling of bruised muscles but that arthritic swelling was dealt with, without the cold. It helps reduce swelling and breaks up the uric acid and if you use Epson salts to draw out the acid is also a great help, but you have to soak a while in a lot of Epson salt to really help. I should try those braces next time. Never thought of that before. Probably the best advice I've gotten yet! LOL! What do I do about the pain? Generally just acetaminophen or Aleve. Sometimes I cuss real loud. Oddly, I have had this so long it has never made me outright cry...but does tend to make me a real asshole. LOL! And when its in the knee I can't sit at the computer chair for more than 5 minutes. It's still there but I was walking without a can yesterday, but I felt I shouldn't push it today since the weather is getting really weird out here. We had an earthquake in SF today. Hot then cool is not great for the faults out here. That is how the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake was set off.--Mark Miller (talk) 04:39, 18 August 2015 (UTC)
Mark, do a search for "heat therapy compression support arthritis knee" or any variation and you'll find something extremely useful. I'm very surprised you aren't using compression support for your knee. It will probably change your life, and it will cost very little. The thing is, you will have to spend a little time finding the right one. Good luck. Viriditas (talk) 09:17, 18 August 2015 (UTC)
