Good Morning, !
Today is  Thursday November 15

I am chipped now.
To take a glucose reading I wave the recorder near my left arm.
It takes the data wirelessly, tells me if it is going up, down,
sideways, up or down fast, and puts the data into a graph.
Once a week I connect the recorder (credit card size but as thick
as your Sillyphone) to a USB port and upload the data to the PCN
(Pretty Cute Nurse)
Then she nags me via email if the glucose level was too high at
any time.
The only time I have to poke my finger the old fashioned way is
if the graph shows an unbelievable jag.

I still have to inject insulin the old fashioned way. No WiFi for
that, yet.

Have FUN!

In answer to his question, he was told, "Mommy is at a Tupperware party." This explanation satisfied him for only a moment. Puzzled, he asked, "What's a Tupperware party, Daddy?" The man had always given his son honest answers, so he figured a simple explanation would be the best approach. "Well, son," he said, "at a Tupperware party, a bunch of ladies sit around and sell plastic bowls to each other." He nodded, indicating that he understood this curious pastime. Then he burst out into laughter and said, "Come on, Dad! What is it really?" ______________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________

___________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Clare Tague, 32, Manchester, Britain British mum secretly hoarded 240,000 of cocaine, some in daughter's Kinder eggs A mum-of-one hoarded 240,000 worth of cocaine in her bedroom after finding it on a walk near her home then led a secret double life to hide it from her boyfriend and daughter. Clare Tague, 32, who has been jailed for six years, even hid some of the cocaine in her 11-year-old's Kinder egg boxes. The 1.2kg stash had been dumped in a field near Tague's home in Clayton, Manchester, and after she was rumbled she told police: 'I found it on the field and was going to sell it on for money why didn't I just leave it where it was.' Police got a tip off she was hoarding the drugs and last May seized the haul during a raid on her home. Tague claimed she had planned to sell the drugs to pay off gambling debts and during the raid police found four mobile phones and a list of 'figures' among shopping lists. Manchester Crown Court heard Tague had stashed snap bags inside 10 Kinder eggs at a street value of 2,000 to 5,000. Prosecuting, Alison Heyworth said: 'A number of bags and packages of cocaine were recovered from their bedroom. Three packages of cocaine were found there. 'Two blocks were found wrapped in tissue paper. 'The compressed blocks of cocaine were likely to be sold in bulk and could range in value between 4,000 and 50,000.' She added that an Asda bag found in Tague's wardrobe contained another six blocks of cocaine at 61% purity, ranging from 124g to 349g. 'This had a value range of 18,000 to 75,000,' the prosecutor said. Tague was arrested alongside her partner during the raid on May 18 but she pulled one officer aside and indicated that her partner didn't know about the bags. 'She said why didn't I just leave it where it was. I found it on the field and was going to sell it on for money ,' Ms Heyworth told the court. 'They found further plastic bags under the bin bag in the bin including 80 snap bags. 'These were ready to be sold on directly and had a value worth of 3,000 to 7,000.' The total value of cocaine found at Tague's home valued between 28,000 and 238,000, she said. Defence lawyer Rachel White told the court that Tague had always worked but after her father's death she became depressed and developed a gambling addiction. 'This was all to try to get rid of the debt,' she said. 'There is no evidence of a lavish lifestyle and she didn't drag her partner into the proceedings.' Ed Re: Mouse Driver Dear Webby I followed your advice and got a Logitech wireless 7 button mouse. It came with a CD for the drivers. Unfortunately, this old klunker does not have a working CD drive anymore. Now what? Ed Dear Ed Just plug the little wirless transceiver into a USB port. Windows has the basic drivers for it and will install them. Then Logitech will show up in the start panel and you can go in there and customize the settings. Have FUN! DearWebby

Thanks to Sandie for this one: A good piece of chocolate has about 200 calories. As I enjoy two servings per night and a few more on weekends, I consume 3,500 calories of chocolate in a week, which equals to one pound of weight per week. Therefore, in the last three and a half years, I have had a chocolate caloric intake of about 180 pounds. I only weigh 165 pounds, so without chocolate, I would have wasted away to nothing about three months ago. I owe my life to chocolate!

Thanks to Roland for this: One little punctuation mark would have made a world of difference in the gigantic sign I saw posted outside a local family restaurant: "Kids Under 12 Eat Free Live Clown Every Wednesday." ___________________________________________________ Daily tip from Softening Brown Sugar Put a slice of bread in a bag of brown sugar that has become hard and then seal the bag. The brown sugar will soften within a couple of days, then discard the bread. In a hurry, just grate the clumps using a hand grater or put in the microwave for a few seconds. Brown sugar is not raw sugar. Ancient laws require all sugar to be fully refined. It is simply flavored and moistened with a bit of molasses.

___________________________________________________ A woman in our diet club was lamenting that she had gained weight. She'd made her family's favorite cake over the weekend, she reported, and they'd eaten half of it at dinner. The next day, she said, she kept staring at the other half, until finally she cut a thin slice for herself. One slice led to another, and soon the whole cake was gone. The woman went on to tell us how upset she was with her lack of willpower, and how she knew her husband would be disappointed. Everyone commiserated, until someone asked what her husband said when he found out. She smiled. "He never found out. I made another cake and ate half!" ___________________________________________________
