Afternoon Reed!
Congratulations are in order for Tom....well done!
I too am interested in the recipe for the Reuben Casserole....sounds delicious!l Hope those fires are nowhere near where you live. Can you smell the smoke from where you are? It was 72F here at its warmest we're getting there! Went to a Chamber Music performance on Sunday evening. The violinist was a former student of mine (gr. 3 and 4).
She is positively gifted. My mom would have been 90 today. Lovely Lily of the Valley and Lilacs for her....two of her favourites.

I know, there have been a lot of new members lately. one place they find us is on Twitter. I just love Twitter. I recently found someone there who just got diagnosed with type1 LAST WEEK. I hope top see her join TuDiabetes. She's overwhelmed with her new life, and we are all trying to give her helpful hints.

that reuben casserole sounds yummy! tell me how you made it, or post a blog with the recipe. I have 2 corned beefs in the freezer, I stocked up when they went on sale around StPaddy's day. Oh I hope Tom gets the full prof position. getting grants and getting published - kudos to him. bg 130

I think it's ok, I don't think they work for Wendy's and are going to be soliciting or spamming, but thanks for being ever vigilant.

raining here, bg was 120, so I don't have much to complain about.

Hi Mr Gator. Was busy this week at the cemetery. We had some upgrades to the road and I had to be there and make some calls. Looks like you have to reschedule your podiatrist appointment. Hope all is well with you and things are getting back to normal in the Gator house,

Oh Reed, I am just wondering what type of emergency a podiatrist could have that would cause them to be behind schedule. When I went last week, I arrived at 11:20 for my 11:45 appt and was taken right away.
Happy May Day! My grammy always used to make MayBaskets out of cottage cheese containers she'd saved all year. She'd decorate them with crepe paper and fill with flowers and treats. I think you were supposed to ring the doorbell and then run away so it was an anonymous type gift.
I washed one window today and it looks so nice. I don't want to stress my wrists so I think I'll just continue to do one per day.
There are words trailing on the bottom of my tv screen saying that tornado activity and hail are headed into the metro area. We'll see.

HAPPY MAY 1stReed...That's one heck of a long wait at the podiatrist....and a lousy excuse for it!! I too would have walked out!

yes those Tshirts are very nice. manny's wife Andre does all the art for them. I wear mine a lot, I have the black one and the blue one. I had a nice time at the guild. I've been a member almost 10 years. bg 99 but I just ate some Doritos. Ed's sister coming tonight, she lives in Vancouver. His family is all over the world. did you make another appt with the podiatrist? we should remind Tony here about "captain's mast".

Dear SEAGATOR: Thank you for the permission to come on board. Now if I can remember all the terms used. Port side, Port Hole, starboard side, deck, head, rack, galley, Scuttlebutt, bridge .... etc. It has been a long time I was a lance corporal E-3 in my beloved US Marine Corps.

Hi Reed hope you are well and hope things went well with the foot doctor. The weather here was really good yesterday with no rain and a little sunshine and was quite warm but not so today a it is cold, wet and windy!! Nick's shoulder seems to be improving slowly but surely and hopefully he will be able to get back into work again soon. The second injection seemed much more successful than the first one. I've had a ffew bad days with the Poly but thankfully feel better today. The steroids are reducing very slowly but at least I am getting them down and now taking 12mg daily. The aim is to get them down to 10mg and then stay on that dose for a few months before trying to reduce further. Not too many lows and staying pretty level at the moment so I'm pleased with that. Take good care Reed. Tricia x

hi Reed, once you get the mail order Rx going, you will like it. I use Express Scripts for my strips and insulin, and Sterling Medical for my pump supplies. the other pills I get from Rite Aid (and eyedrops). Actually my bread came out pretty good. this recipe I use takes 24 hours. the first rise is 5 hours and the second 3, that's after a 4 hour sit on the counter and 12 hours in the fridge. so you have to start it at 3 or 4 in the afternoon the day before you want to make it. Ed's sister is coming today for a visit, not looking forward to that. we just aren't set up here for overnight visitors, although we have a sofa bed. I'll get through it. had a low last night 65, I'm going to the endo soon and I'm going to ask him to tweak my dosage. going to the guild today even though it's raining pretty hard. I will be careful driving.

Up late tonight...working on school material, but also I was greeting here at tu a few hours ago....then on chat as well.
Take care Reed my friend....and good night!

Hello dear friend.
Man am I tired. I had a woman I used to work with over for supper. We had hash brown potatoes topped with poached eggs, salad with balsamic vinegar and split a very moist and dense raspberry muffin for dessert. Then we walked around the neighborhood and looked at landscaping and flowers. It is fascinating the way each person sees things a little differently. She pointed out many nuances and details that I had never noticed, even though I walk that route all the time. It was very pleasant and I feel content but exhausted. The dishes can wait until tomorrow. LOL.
There is a mother duck tucked in way under the hedge on the side of my building. She has been there for 3 days so we finally concluded she has a nest. No one goes to close in hopes of not disturbing her. I only live a block from a lake so that's where she came from. If any babies hatch we will have to shoe them back to the water, I guess.
I had a nice chat with Doris tthis afternoon in the chatroom. She had been to a buffet restaurant for lunch and was wondering what her bg would be tonight.
Yes, I am still making it to the Y at least once a day and lovin' it. Unfortunately, I have not lost any weight. I go to see the kidney doc in 3 weeks and we had sort of agreed that I'd try to be down 5 pounds. I don't think I'm gonna make it. There's always next time......
