Hi Marie. The apartment fire was about 4 miles from me, near the U of Mn campus. They think it was some type of explosion. 14 people were taken to the hospital and 3 are missing. Some had to jump from the upper floor. Thankfully it was just 3 floors high. The big problem was keeping the firefighters safe from frostbite and from falling on the ice - the water froze quite quickly, clogging the hoses, etc. What a way to start the new year. Oy.
Bitterly cold again today, but I think I'm getting used to it as I did go out for a bit. Wore a full set of thermal underwear and two pair of mittens. Thankfully the buses were running on schedule. And, it's nice and warm in my apartment.
Be well.

Marie- I want to wish you and Ed a very Happy New Year also a healthy one. I am glad to say "good-bye" to 2013 and hope 2014 will be a healthier one for me.
I want to ask you if you like the AccuChek Aviva ? I found out this morning that Roche is discontinuing the test strip drums that I use for my AccuChek Compact Plus. They said that Roche wants people to switch to the Aviva. I do like AccuChek products, they are the only ones I have used since my Dx 15 years ago. I left a message for Rob Muller to ask him what the story is. The pharmacy was able to fill the
Rx today so I have some time to decide.
Have a great New Year. Susan

Hey sweet Marie. Yes, Alison and I go way back too. Her husband is from Minneapolis. Thanks for the heads-up.
12 freakin' below here and I have to pick up a prescription and go for my INR test. Now my sis emailed me and wants me to go to this upscale grocery store near me and get some kind of cocktail sauce I've never heard of.........My nephew is coming to get me so I don't have to stand in the cold at the bus stop.
Enjoy. Next year will be better.

Hello Marie. How did you make out at the doctors? I have been busy doing this and that. Russ is wrapping gifts I did the laundry. He must have taken a big chunk out of my elbow as it is sore and aches. Seems to affect my entire right arm. Russ and I are saying now we are too old to do all this decorating but we have so many unusual things it is a shame not to use them. I just put up Father Christmas in his robes and fir coat.Sunny and 66. Most of your orders filled? I bet you get more for New Years. Give my best to Ed. BG102. Going now to drug store. Take care. HUGS,Reed

Good Morning, Marie. I had a good night. BG106. It was 41 this morning. Bright sun now. Did you get the expected snow? I imagine you are baking like crazy. Last night I blew a fuse and all the lights in the kitchen went out. I found the right spot on the fuse box and got them back on. I see the cancer doctor at 12. I wonder if he will open me up. It is my second time since he told me he did not get it all. What is he waiting for? I will let you know what he tells me. Take good care. My best to Ed. HUGS,
