Hello Doris. How are you and Ken doing? I have not felt good these last two days. My knees are killing me and I hate to take PERCOCET unless I cannot stand it abymore. Miserable weather here. A cold rain. Tom went to run but he only did 4 miles as it was so cold rainy and windy. Ordered my fresh turkey. Yonght our famous NIGHTS OF LIGHTS open. We might drive in. How is Brice and the new baby? Give my best to Ken. HUGS,Reed

Good evening,Dpris. The 12th has come and gone so you must be a new grandmother. I think this makes 5. All good wishes to your daughter. Is Ken a beaming grandfather or is he saying enough all ready. I have felt lousy the last few days. My stomach not good. Finally took a Zantac and am feeling better. TOPS tomorrow. Supposed to be a rainy day. BG 106. Been doing BBT even have Tom doing it. How is Ken? Give him my best. Hope you are doing well and your readings are where they should be. Take good care. I care. HUGS,Reed

Get Your Test On! Where else can you make a donation without taking money out of your pocket?

The 2012 Big Blue Test has started! Between now and the end of the day on November 14th, do the Big Blue Test every day to help us reach our goal of 20,000 entries.

Let your TuD friends, and family/friends/co-workers know about the Big Blue Test. If they don't have diabetes, they can still take the Big Blue Test every day WITHOUT testing their BG.

Every time YOU do the Big Blue Test the program sponsor (Roche Diabetes Care, makers of ACCU-CHEK® diabetes products and services) donates $5 to support organizations that help people with diabetes in need.

If you've never taken the Big Blue Test before, it's really easy. All you have to do is:
Test your blood glucose.
Get active for 14-20 minutes (or whatever you can do).
Test again.
Share the results on
Come back every day and tell others!
(If you don't have diabetes, you can still take the Big Blue Test every day. You just don't need to worry about testing your blood glucose.)

Share your results in our Big Blue Test discussionif you wish.

Thanks :)

Doris, were you in the blizzard?

Good Morning,Doris. I was frozen in bed so I got up at 4:30. It was 44 degrees the house was cold. I hate to put the heat on so early. Sandy is quite a storm. Many of our friends here are right in the middle of it. Power put for millions. Joanne says her house is shaking. So glad Sandy went right by Florida. Queer. I took off summer shorts and put on long flannel lounging pjs...guess what? My knees stopped aching. Maybe the A/C was the culprite. How are you dpomg? Ken? My BH 98. I am sitting here in a jacket. Did you get this drop? Take good care. HUGS,Reed
