hi Pete, how's everything going? what are you up to these days? I just wanted to stop by to see if you've done your Big Blue Test Today. Dont' forget that every time you log a Big Blue Test $5 is donated to diabetes charities that are providing life-saving supplies and services.

If you haven't yet, go log a Big Blue Test at http://www.bigbluetest.org/. If you have, do another!

Hello Pete. We had wild storm #4 last night and we are gearing up for another one. Russ is in a big blue stocing. He has no fractures or blood clots but his foot has fluid and inflamed.
