The wonderful world of gout

Well had a gout flare up that lasted quite a few days. This time around it decided to hit my "good" knee. That made for a very painful few days of trying to walk. I haven't had a flare up in ages and I have been pretty good about watching what I eat and drink. I've even lost about 40 pounds since the first of the year so I was feeling pretty good about myself. That all changed when this bout of gout hit me like a ton of bricks.

Now I don't take anything for it besides ibuprofen as I'm not wanting to be stuck on pills the rest of my life. I figure to just watch my diet and keep getting exercise so that I can enjoy my life. I do know of others who take things for it but they are also ones who like their alcohol.

Do you suffer from this infliction and do you take anything for it?
Sturgis Motorcycle Rally 2020

Well the official start date for the motorcycle rally is on Friday the 7th. The city of Sturgis has already started putting in the extra stop signs and lights around town.

I have seen plenty of arrivals already even with the virus going on. This is the 80th anniversary so it was supposed to be big but know that it won't be as big as expected. But for this area and the state, an additional 200,000 people do make things interesting. I know that the city of Sturgis has planned on trying to get folks to follow the guidelines but they really can't enforce it.

This will be an interesting rally but it hasn't stopped some of the biker babes from wearing revealing clothing. I don't plan on making it to downtown Sturgis or the campgrounds this year but could be interesting to see if any women will go for body painting and a mask for their attire.

Do you plan on attending or know of someone who will be attending the rally?
People living in other's heads rent free

I've noticed among many bloggers here that they are letting some folks live in their heads rent free. I find it funny that so much of one's life can be consumed by someone else. I could see if it was to do with something important but these are blogs on TSdates.com. If it is something that may be affecting your livelihood or family's safety that is another matter but like I said before, this is a website for hookups. Of course I have a life outside of this site so maybe that is what makes it different for me. I figure I won't meet most, if any, of the bloggers I've read in person so I'm not too concerned about what they think of me.
Mask Requirements - Is it really about health and safety?

Now a lot of major retain chains are requiring that customers wear masks. Is this truly about health and safety or is it about compliance? I'll just put in a few points here about this whole thing.
1) If it is about health, why not make them mandatory back in March or April? Target announced that they will be requiring customers to wear masks starting Aug. 1st. Why the 2 week wait? Other major retailers have announced and started it along with others going to start within a couple of days. Now on another site there were folks who said that the 2 weeks was to get the supplies and get the employees used to the idea. Does that mean that the employees of places like Target aren't as smart as employees of other major retailers?

2) Do the masks really work? Now if they are going to require everyone to wear a N95 mask then I know they work but what about other masks. Recent studies have shown that the masks that you buy in the retail outlets aren't that effective. And the cloth masks, bandannas and shirts people pull up to act like a mask are pretty much worthless. So are they going to be handing out N95 masks to customers?

3) No where in any of the mask requirements does it say what type of material the mask must be made of. So does a mask made from lace count? If someone were allowed to shop or work in these establishments with a lace mask, does that mean it really isn't about health but about compliance?

4) This last point is going off the rails but I found it interesting nonetheless. Studies have shown that blood type may even play a role in who gets and how severe the symptoms are from COVID-19. Recent studies show that folks with O-type blood are in the minority for getting infected and the symptoms are milder. So does that mean if you carry around a blood donor card with your blood type on it, do you get to be excluded from wearing a mask as an O-type blood person? I'm A+ so that leaves me out.

Tell me what you think.
Does rioting and looting really help?

I've seen in other sites on the world wide web where people are claiming that peaceful protests weren't working so the violence of rioting and looting was needed. But does that really help? I've seen where the peaceful protesters don't want to be lumped in with the rioters or looters. I personally prefer to judge a person by their actions instead of lumping them into one group. Now 4 bad former cops murdered a man but that doesn't mean that all cops are bad. So the peaceful protesters truly need to see what they can do to distance themselves from the looters and rioters. I'm pretty sure from the way that people speak of George Floyd that rioting and looting would certainly be things he would be against. How does it serve the purpose of the changes that the protestors are trying to get going by the rioters and looters committing crimes? I mean those folks aren't really protesting they are using this moment as an opportunity to commit crimes. How does ransacking a Target store and stealing a big screen TV help out the cause? Is there something I'm missing?
Returning to see what is up

I am just returning TSdates.com after some time away. I have noticed already that the membership rates have skyrocketed. The way earn a few points has changed also. I will just be though and add a blog post once in a while, while looking at other blog posts. It does appear that this site has gotten quite a bit quieter kind of like all the areas that are on lockdown. I'm a fairly thrifty person so with the rise in membership rates I will probably stick doing the free things on the site. Maybe I'll even find my old webcam somewhere while unpacking boxes of stuff and have a little fun in that regards. Who knows what life may bring.
