Andy,

I think you are right; however, I was never aware of my gout until I drank copious amounts of vodka. The doctor I went to told me it was because of "rich foods."

Yes!! Now I remember!

My mother once always told me that it's a "rich man's" disease.

Money is usually not an option with me. However, the lack thereof is frequently an obstacle.

Yes! Your mother was right! (although I am not sure about "once always") However, this was once thought of as a rich man's disease, as the peasants couldn't afford it. Hence my mention of rich food.

Although it was thought of as such a long time ago. How old is your mother, anyway?

vodka is not fattening. in fact, after a few, you, and the people around you begin to look slim and very attractive.

Sorry, she passed on in '89. This was way before she became sick.

But in the 70's when she was first diagnosed with it, both she and my late dad always told us that.

That supposedly, only rich people get the disease, as mentioned above.

I thought I'd hear from you with different opinion. I like to hear Toby Keith sing about his friend who tried to make his girl look good by drinking. You are right when you had a few you do start not to care about the small things. Like having few pounds where they shouldn't be, etc. But you can't do this everyday. Glad to hear from you buckytom, hope all is well.

Buckytom, so sorry to have to dispute you, but vodka DEFINITELY IS fattening. It contains sugar, which natually come from the processing of the ingredients - in the case of most brands of vodkas, potatoes, which in turn, eventually becomes fat in the body.

Spirits in general, made mostly from corn, have absolutely no nutritional value at all. Their main purpose, if anything, is to get drinlkers "feeling good" or drunk, depending on how far they go with them.

hiya itk, always glad to read your posts. i don't think there's another member here, nay, human alive that has a bigger heart than yours (and i don't mean dilated cardiomyopathy ). hope all's well with you, and give your doggies a bone and bowl of water and ice ubes for me.
when i was a boy, on really hot days (we didn't have air conditioning) my mom gave our dog a bowl of ice water, and would let her sleep on a cool sheet on the concrete basement floor. it seemed to help.

lol, oops, sorry, wrong post. this is the vodka thread. i was just reading the dog one. oh well, maybe the dogs might like a jigger...(kidding!)

and corey, i'm sure you look much thinner after a few vodkas.

"heya baby, what's your s-s- sign. i'm a, i'm a feces...."
