    But that is all "pending" on the survival of the human race & the cat's shortsightedness regarding a manipulation in a "free loading" ongoing coexistence in a domestic environment... o_O:p

    I can see them evolving like a TRex with fur... But without the catchy tunes. ;)

    Zager and Evans are not in the same class as T Rex. I am not a cat person anymore/

    To quote the Doctor. Don't mess with your own timeline... My hand was almost phasing out like Marty McFly just then.
    I keep to this simple "directive" with moderating. It minimises any confusion. ;)

    I’m 65 next Monday and have been type 1 for 57 years, diagnosed 3 days after my eighth birthday.
    This last year I’ve been treated for endometrial cancer and was able to manage my diabetes throughout with no medical help other than the necessary paraphernalia for the two lots of surgery I had, I was in hospital just overnight for both procedures. I also had internal radiotherapy. For those of you newly diagnosed ... believe in your ability to control your diabetes It has never stopped me from doing all the things I wanted to and it never will.

    66 + a few days, diagnosed at 1yr 11months december 1954. So 64 years of diabetes type 1, I'd hate to try counting the number of injections in that time!
