That must be like 10 kilos of cherries

Maybe we can share, or organise a cherry party.

How much cherries can be bought with 100 bucks? I actually don't mind splitting the costs if its reasonable.. having been wanting to make cherry pie for a while now..

Didn't know they only have such a short fruit bearing period and difficult to grow.

I was a Giant Parkway Parade and they were selling cherries for $1.55 per 100 g, thats about the cheapest I've seen in a supermarket I think. Lots of people were crowding around handpicking them one by one. The cherries were very handled thats for sure...

At the same place I also found these cherries from China going for 3 dollars for something like a 300 g box or something. They looked inferior though, kinda dull looking and no one were going after those.

I have been on Methotrexate for a number of years and over the last year my hair has become thinner and thinner, and also very brittle. As well as this my nails are very dry and brittle and I am beginning to think that vitamin supplements - such as selenium and iodine, and maybe some of the B's - might help.

But when I began the various medications I am now on I was told by the Rheumatology team that I must never take any supplements. Has anyone out there had the similar experience of the hair and nails problem and has anyone taken vitamin supplements? Or any other remedy?

Currently, I am going through a rough time - one of the hardest things of this disease is its unpredictability...maybe tomorrow I'll be fine: smile:
