what with my own misery just lately, pain in my ankle is so much worse i now wear an ankle support, and editors choice,etc.i forgot to write about the person this journal is really about,well a lot of it anyway. my mum. it wasn't until someone asked me how she was i realised i hadn't updated on her gout lately. and there is a very good reason. IT'S GONE. ( hope this desk is wood because i am touching it as i write that.) well,just about anyway. ever since the last time she went to the chiropodists and saw that male chiropodists her feet have been so much easier. the uric acid crystals have all but disappeared,and she is much happier for it. If only the arthritis in her knees would do the same. she really is suffering with them. but small mercies anyway. least she can get about a little bit easier. tracy still comes,the fact she only comes now for 15 minutes seems to have been forgotten,as tracy gets here earlier to compensate lol. she still the same tracy. no comment lol. mum likes her,and they get on well. that is worth more than anything. i am finding driving so painful my right ankle gets all the work when i drive,but this support does help. just enough. and of course i rested it all yesterday. coughs. ermmmm ok, i did a little bit of gardening. strimmed,cut hedge,edged grass shuts up. look,it needed doing,and it was a lovely day.and it took me 6 hours. but i do rest every few minutes. i have to.but if i give up at least trying to do things normally,i may as well give up altogether. not likely anytime soon. so don't scold me lucy lol
Now,some of you may have noticed that our profiles don't seem to be on view at the moment. not noticed?? try it. see someone on your buddy list?? ok lets click on their name,click buddy info and read their profile....................it says system error please try later. and has for past few days. so? well,i use chatrooms,and its nice to see who people are, also though if someone leaves a comment on your journal,and you don't know them its good if they have a profile. at least you know if they male,female,etc. my profile is quite long. ( romantic one dear lady called it,load of bull**** some more sensible people say.lol) and contains a lot of pictures. over 100. so i went to a lot of time and trouble to create it. and no-one can view it. why?? so today i went on aol noticeboards,they can be found in the chat and community section on quick start. sure enough someone had asked the same question i was going to. why can't i view profiles??? the answer can be found in the following link AIM Profiles - Changes Are Coming to Your Profile Experience! snappy little title. basically,your AIM profile,which was AOL member profile,is going to be replaced by Bebo profiles. Bebo is a social networking site now owned by AOL. i shant bother writing about it,please look yourselves. the bit i find annoying is, if we want to keep our profiles we must move them to bebo.or they will vanish. on september 15th now i have had no details of this. no emails from AOL. nothing. so, i have signed up to go to bebo as they ask,apparently my profile will now be uploaded automatically. but AOL should at least tell us they are doing this and soon,surely? in the meantime if you wish to view a members profile,in the long search box along the top of your screen type http://aimprofiles.aol.co.uk/ followed by the screenname if US aol it is aol.com/ hope this is of interest. please make sure your profiles arent lost to the ether.
september tomorrow,soon autumn will be here,and we have had such a bad summer. let's hope we get a nice september and make the most of it. take care all
