    This may have helped with the pain today, but I can see where the orange/yellow knees might be an issue. hahahaha
    My knees look like I have a little self tanning lotion on them. I don't know how fast it will accumulate or how fast it will wash off. :thumbsup

    If that list is too long, perhaps you could put a reference to post # 85 in the first post. Then... as I update this list, the reference # could be changed.

    Thank you. I'll try to stay on top of new recipes as they are added. Hopefully, folks will be adding stuff that they have actually made. Though links to pertinent info are also appreciated.
