Joe, so glad to hear from you. you must be very proud to work on the factory, and it warms my heart to know you are contributing to getting a generic out there. a few years ago I shelled out $150 for a bottle of the stuff. I've been stockpiling it recently as my husband's out of work now for a solid year, and I don't know if I'll have any health insurance in the future. I really enjoyed those Mother's Day pics of little Jimmy.

we had a redo (don't know what to call it) of the site a while back, all the member's pages got reset, so if you had Irish castles or whatever for your background, they are gone. you can redesign by clicking on "customize" under your profile picture. the CT got whittled down to double digits, the most active members staying on. hey, that's really cool about the Insulin factory! get any free samples?

I lived with a frozen shoulder for about 15 years and when Amber found out she was having Amarie I went in and got it fixed on the right side. I couldn't hold a gallon of milk with my hand b/c it hurt my shoulder so bad to do so. Fast forward 6 years and now all that has went to my left shoulder. When they done the right one they had to go in break the shoulder bone then reset it. My rotator cup is 50% gone on that side too. I just didn't want that to happen to my left side so's when it started hurting like the other side did I went for about a year not saying anything then we found out that Brittany will have a baby in late june or early july so here I go again! LOL! Weeeell I want to hold any g-childI have and I just can't get my shoulder to working soooooo......... It's great to look at things through kids eyes isn't it??????? They look at things totally different fromthe way we do. I LOVE to look at things through my g-kids eyes. They keep us young! LOL!
