Being involved in the hospitality industry since 1939 on trains, maitre'din 3 SOUL FOOD RESTAURANTS, I am a 92 computer rookie, clinically dead, in 1977,with a BG of 880and with my second chance, have been a ROLE MODEL to over 40.000 diabetics since.You are in a great position to learn how to attract diabetics who are afraid to eat in restaurants.Work closely with local diabetes organization, dietitans and maybe you could attract LIONS CLUBS, to maybe use your place to have their special events in your establishment. Remember that if you beleive, you will achieve LIONS CLUB, have an extensive network of 45.000, in 205 countries. AMIGO clarence.haynes@sympatico.ca
