    Stem cell treatments in trials look promising for knees so maybe something to follow.

    Was cutting some price tags off of kitchen towels and dropped the scissors (partially opened) on my right foot. The two points pierced my walking shoes and hit my big toe and adjacent one......cleaned up the bloody mess and within an hour dropped a fire log onto the Same Foot while making a fire! I guess the puncture wounds didn't satisfy Karma enough so I now have a black & blue & bloody digit!

    I guess I need to improve my grip.....or start wearing my steel-toed boots around the house....
