Welcome Rob Roy! Glad you found us. We are all at different stages in our relationships to the magical "5"......Linda just arrived. I may be reaching the outer limits due to recent health problems. I'll know in a month or so. But it's a great feeling for each of us who works for it!....Blessings

Thank you Judith! It DOES feel less thing to worry about, but there is more than diabetes on my plate! It feels like the older I get...the more variety there is on my plate! I'd like to scrape my plate into the garbage ;)

Brava Linda!!!. I've been in this club for awhile, but now am developing problems that may take me out of it---a poster child for "don't get complacent when you are doing everything 'right!'".....I'm so very happy for you. Feels good, doesn't it?!.....Love.....
