    So sorry for late answer I forget that I have to go onto this page to see if there are any messages. There should be some sort of pop up that alerts you. Anyway it's nearly another weekend here, today is Friday 7th. Surprisingly today isn't as hot as expected where I am. There's a lovely breeze coming off the Ocean which is keeping the temp in the high 20Cs. Just the way I like it. Inland the temp is in the high 30Cs. I can't believe the winter you guys are having. We get to see on the tv news how bad it looks. I couldn't live in temps like that. Every time I've travelled overseas I've made sure it is in the summertime in the countries I go to. This weekend is going to be quiet. My son and his partner may come for lunch on Sunday so that will be nice. The dogs and I will will probably stay inside if we get the promised 40C days. Hope you are well. Keep warm x

    Ice is the worst! We've been lucky here with above freezing temps. Some flurries expected in the next few days, but nothing big, and no huge dips in the temps. Been trying to get ahead in baking. Stay healthy!

About Me

  • About Gizmo
    I am 69 years old, married over 50 years. We have 2 kids and 4 grandkids. DH retired from the Navy after more than 26 years. With all the moving around that comes with military life, I have been a secretary, day care worker, worked for a janitor service, worked at card factories and a lighting factory, and in my younger days, I worked at PhotoMat as a PhotoMate. That just means I sat in a little booth wearing an ugly orange and yellow striped skirt, blouse and beret and customers would drive up to the booth and bring film to be developed and pick up the pictures when ready.

    I have always done a lot of cooking, do all kinds of crafts and like to play around on the computer making PowerPoint presentations to email to friends. I also enjoy creating birthday cards on the computer.

    Your experiences with diabetes
    DH also has type 2, we manage with diet - lc/hf and no meds or insulin.

    Type 2 has ravaged my family. Both parents (deceased), 3 siblings (one lost a leg, then lost his life due to complications from the surgery), my son, my grandaughter (also has PCOS), father-in-law (lost his leg - deceased), brother-in-law and sister-in-law (5' 2", over 300 pounds), a close family friend (now totally blind, lost both legs, in horrible health, and he is only in his 40's).

    When DH and I were diagnosed, I scoured the web, hoping there was some way to control this monster. Luckily, I found this forum right away. I have no doubt this forum saves lives.
