"Since A1C is a 3 month average just one week on your new diet won't show up in your results. If your meter says your numbers are much improved, your next A1c will be much improved as well."

"Candy, for T2's blood sugars over 140 area also thought to result in glucotoxicity. This is when high sugars kill off the beta cells that produce insulin. This can result in a downward spiral resulting worsening blood sugars."

glad to hear those nasty storms didn't do too much. living in Oklahoma for a few years taught me to listen to the weatherman when he said take cover.

Well, I'm quite eclectic as well. I go from jam bands to indie rock to country then classic rock. Really depends on which way the wind is blowing. Both my 17 year old son and 15 year old daughter have been playing guitar since they were 6. They are fantastic and have an amazing ear for music, tone, rhythm, etc. So, we have some pretty cool nights around the fire playing instruments and singing.

I remember Barbara talking about you and your love of cooking. Another thing we have in common. In fact, I'm trying to decide what to fix on the grill tonight. Leaning towards pork.

Thank you BadMoon.....I love your photos. Music is such an integral part of my life and my kid's lives too. My son's first concert was Ozzie and Zac Wild. I think I've done a pretty good job a raising them right. LOL. Keep in touch. Looks like we've got a lot of cool things in common.

You were right, visited a friend in Indy for a long weekend, glad the shoulder happened after! Tripped over a dog gate. Ni driving for a good month; every car in our driveway is stick lol Thanks for the good wishes my friend.

Hah Badmoon, I check my page once every few months it seems and I completely missed the blog post on Cleveland sports teams.

These are not the worst of times, only the latest. The Fumble, the Drive, the Shot, the curse of Rocky Colavito — library shelves groan with the agony of Cleveland fans.

Truer words have never been spoken. Here's to another season of futility!
