Hi Marie- I wanted to wish you a nice vaca in Maine. I hope you get there without Irene hindering you. We are supposed to have 5-10" of rain and 70mph winds Sat. nite into Sun. If the power goes out that will be the bad part. I have plenty of supplies, but they won't stay cold more than 1-2 days. The supermarkets look like we are having snow storm, they are so full of people. I think your area of Jersey is out of danger from Irene. The casinos in AC are even closing tonite until ----? Guess I can't win any $$$$ tonite. LOL. Have fun !!!

Marie - are you in the path of the hurricane? The national news tonight made it sound just terrible, "the worst storm in half a century".Please do all you can to stay safe. I'll be thinking about you.

Good Morning,Marie. I had a much better night. I hope you did too. Your BG not that bad. TOPS was ok only 14 showed up. I lost 1./2 pound. The doctor set my goal at 200 I am a little over 6 feet tall. I now weigh 197. According to the rukles KOPS can go 7 below goal or 3 above if you do you lose status. We have 2 huge farmers markets here one is at the concert hall you never can get in as the parking lot is full. So i drive to Hastings 12 miles and they have a good one. I love veggies. Irene going to miss us. Heading North. I could not handle a hurricane right now. Tom comes tonight as he has to represent U of F at a meeting in Vilano and he will stay here and work tomorrow at Government house so more cooking for reed. Have a great day,. A big hello to ed. Take care. HUGS,POPS

Oh I already got that one going around here.

I honestly would freak out if the earth started to shake under me. The tornado thingy I think I've got being in the new tornado alley and having had to go through one that hit Jackson a few years back but if the earth started shacking under my feet??? I'm not sure I could handel that well (seeing that I haven't lived through one of those in my life. Hey I want control and I don't think I could keep it together if that happens to me LOL)

I was watching the World Series when the quake your talking about happened. The tv was on and the guy was getting ready to throw the baseball and the tv went out. I of course cussed the tv not knowing that you guys were having an earthquake. When it came back on and we found out what was going on. I really was upset with myself (and after that I decided that my impulsive cussing tyrayes weren't that good for me or others.

I got up with a 62 (?) bs. I have gotten it up to 134 now.

Glad your ok!!! Nice to hear from you!!! I didn't even know about it til I turned over on CNN around 3 here. See I watch cable tv just not the news! LOL! Yep I guess that will be the way I go. It got me yesterday when here I had just put all my money on going into college this fall only to find out it would be the spring b/f the paper work was done. You know the saying "Don't put all your eggs in one basket"? Well that'swhat I had done and got upset yesterday when I found out that I wasn't going to get out of this house (and out of babysitting) til the spring.

Hi Marie,
Thank you for the birthday wishes. It's been a rough summer. Lupus flaring and high dose steroids are wrecking havoc with sugars.

Hi Marie- I thought you were in Maine sans computer. Didn't you leave yet ? I hope you both have a restful time there. It should be cooler when you arrive back home. Jim's cataract surgeries were both successful and he doesn't even need glasses anymore. Just needs reading glasses. It is amazing, he has worn glasses since he was 4 yo. We have been having nasty T-storms the past couple of days, even expect more tonight. Have fun in Maine !!!! Cat

Hello Marie. I heard from Manny and he had NING study my problem. Ning admitted it is a technical problem of some sort and they cannot fix it. I was wondering what if I signed out and came back with a new name? But then,the email address would be the same. I uess I wull let it me. Please try not to get dow. I am praying for boith you and Ed. I know it is a tough time but good things will happen. Some idiot spray painted one of our historic lions with a deep red paint..they hope they can get it out without hurting the marble. Why do people do things like that? For a change things are good at SEAGATE. Take good care. Hello to POPS. HUGS,POPS
