    Thx - I am planning on it! That field of flowers is gorgeous! It's been snowing here today, but someone reminded me that when March comes in like a lion, it goes out like a lamb, so I'm hanging on! :clapping:

    Nope. I am on methotrexate and love it.

    The docs get creeped about it and US docs are scared of it because of lawsuits in the past, but you wouldn't know I have it unless you looked in my ears.

    The problem with Methotrexate is it plays havoc with the liver and alcoholics who take it can end up dead. However I have been clean and sober 26 years and my last visit to a liver specialist [routine] indicated that on a scale of 6 to 70 with 70 being near death, I am 6.4. He wants to see me again in five years.

    In October of 1924 Lang came to the U.S.for a visit to observe motion picture production
    techniques in New York and Hollywood.He was detained for several hours aboard ship in
    New York harbor.Gazing upon the towering Manhattan skyline,he conceived the idea for his
    next film Metropolis {1927}.Metropolis took nearly two years {1925-26} to complete,
    it was The most expensive film every produced in Germany.

    Interesting! I did not know that but I can easily see it. And the city below looked very much like NY in the 20s.

    It was supposed to be The end all of Movies in a certain genre.
    It's kinda slow and is suspenseful,but not nearly as gripping as the
    critics claimed.Peter Lorre was a virtual unknown when Lang chose him to
    play the psychopathic child murderer.Lorre,a former bank clerk spent 7 years
    on stage in Switzerland and Austria { where he received stage training }.
    He debut was in Zurich.
    When the Nazis came to power in1933,Lorre was able to exile himself to
    Paris,then London,then finally,in1935,to Hollywood.
    Many Germans tried to wait out Hiitler's reign of Nazism.
    By around 1936 it was nearly impossible to Leave Germany w/o
    paying a huge amount for the permission to leave.
    A Great movie regarding this is the Spenser Tracy thriller :
    - The Seventh Cross - {1944}
    Also - Man Hunt - {1944}.

    It was from several years of military service and having a choice between coffee, or warm water from a canvas bag, or a metal container called a water buffalo...

    in Kool aid and fruit juice and stuff like fifths of Vodka,Rum .
    Then other knuckleheaded drunks add what they feel is kool.

    Man Hunt is an excellent movie. The movie I am talking about has Walter Pidgeon. Joan Bennett, George Sanders and John Carradine in it. Great movie.

    Im also on methotrexate (15 mg/week), but get bloodwork every 3 mos. I've always tolerated it well, but you're right. No heavy drinking. I have a glass of wine or two about once a month, but skip the med that week. Just heard it comes in injection form now, bypassing your digestive system. Asked the nurse about it and she's gonna check to see if my insurance will cover it. Dr appt next month, we'll see.

    BTW, do you know mx is one of the world's 10 most important drugs? Powerful sh*t, for sure. :)

    Not sure about methotrexate but many of these medications are bad for your liver.

    Many people cant tolerate it, so they monitor your blood closely. I take one pill a week and its very effective. The possible liver damage is why you can't drink alcohol.. double whammy!

    The Coffee Cantata - J.S. Bach




    Aria - Lieschen
    Mm! how sweet the coffee tastes, more delicious than a thousand kisses, mellower than muscatel wine. Coffee, coffee I must have, and if someone wishes to give me a treat, ah, then pour me out some coffee!

    Recitative - Schlendrian
    If you don't give up drinking coffee then you shan't go to any wedding feast, nor go out walking. oh! when will I get my way; give up coffee!

    Lieschen
    Oh well! Just leave me my coffee!
