Thanks Marie. This is the first time I've gotten spam from a website. I've gotten email spams and know not to open them. Thanks for the info...there's always someone to spoil it for others..ugg

BEWARE!!! of posts from Salley Stenger I got an email from Salley Stenger that person that who posted as if she was a PA resident and had a good deal on baby products. I clicked and it's one of those emails that sends you into a loop if you try to get out. I also did a search for that name on TuD and no such person I would suggest that before it's allowed that some of these posts are checked out.

Step Out Phila: Walk To Stop Diabetes

Donna H and I will be there - it would be nice to get as many of us as possible together!

If you go to this site you can register as a Red Strider (someone with diabetes).

Let us know if you can make it so we can figure out where to meet, etc. Walk as much/little as you can.
