    I was ooommming like an alien space ship and the phone rang, apparently if I had been in a car accident recently there would be cause for compensation, I haven't and there isn't and the call broke my ooommm and now I feel silly, still I'll take feeling silly with lower bg any day (dons paper hat and sits in the corner).

    Let's just hope your walk doesn't become epic and leads into the orbit of @alf_Josiah. The world may not be ready for that duo yetawhile @Grant1969 :arghh:

    Welcome back and with a great number. I also imagine your part of the world will be having a chuckle at the Indians throwing away the first Test Match. All in all things look good - please don't make me look like a clod with bad news.:oops:

    Thank you ianspurs. I find portion control is key to keeping bg control. Once in a while it is okay to go overboard. We have only one life and a very short one, so enjoy it while you can. Love everyone on this great forum.
