    hi FightingType2 here, now in Wash DC area itz 930 PM Sunday night. I ate a bit late and generally have measured and kept track of what I have had to eat during the day, which gives me fairly good idea what I need come time for my final eats for the day. I had the Nissan noodles and a bologna and cheese sandwhich on wheat bread with mayo & mustard. I am running generally between 7-10 IU of slow/fast mix, so I went with 7, then measured a bit later was 145, top edge of range desired after eating, so is ok. The long acting will work this down thru the nite. The biggest thing I think about is my internal organs, wanting to keep them with as much integrity as I can, and for any who maintain their own cars, you know there are similarites here. Both require all the internal parts be in good working order, or the entire system craps out. I usually write a paragraph or two at most, so Ill leave it for now, but come back here, hopefully Ill find it ok again, and add more later, when I think of new things I want to add. Happy Holidays!:)
