This is so not about diabetes, but I think it addresses one of the most exasperating practices found in this country, if not everywhere else as well. Computerized campaign calls . . . robo-calls. Since the US general election is coming up in four more days, you can bet our phones are ringing off the hooks. But there is hope . . . :D :D :D

We bought a new landline phone this week. It was a nice model - two handsets - but economical, as is our wont, and at first I was chagrined to realize that the economy came at the expense of an answering program incorporated with it. But since the answering machine on the old phone still works well, we'll leave it plugged in somewhere too, just for that purpose.

But I digress. The new phone has call blocking capabilities! Why am I always the last to learn these things?! So three days ago I began blocking every number associated with a robo-call from any political campaigns - people, propositions, anything. And today it began to work. The handset at my elbow began to blink an incoming call. The unit rang ONE single solitary time, and then the handset began blinking "call blocked"!!! Hallelujah!!! I think I haven't been this happy since well . . . since I can't even remember! heheh!
