    Mayb that's the reason why? Not enough fuel to keep going so the helpful liver gave you some?

    Dont worry Gabe we are all over the world here on the forum. You are beginning to get good numbers but still a long way off from 5's or 6's but a progress is a progress no matter what and I am really happy how you have got it down from 30's i remember to less than 10.
    Great going all the best and you will get into 5's and 6's soon with the way you have made progress so far.

    No worries Gabe. There's a globe trotted or two, some in Canada, some Australia.... And we're none of us around at the same time of day anyhow. Not a bad 9.3, its creeping down nicely :)

    It's not my call whether anyone starts a new thread or not, but I'd say it wasn't relevant to this thread topic, and I doubt would come up in any search made for relating meters/insurance/strips etc, which is more to my point.

    Whilst you may not have time to visit other threads, you could watch the thread, with alerts, and that emails you every time anyone responds to a thread. I personally, find it very difficult visiting this thread these days. I have to wade through a load of chit chat to find what I might be looking for, which is a shame.

    But the threads belong to the posters. @cazza54 - I haven't caught up this morning yet, so apologies if you have already taken action on this, but can you see my point about searches?
