    good morning all :)

    4.3 today

    my computer monitor appeared to have died this morning, no reasuring little blue standby light, no power. Thankfully after excavating the cables etc. from under the desk it was a power connection which had become unseated from it's socket :happy:
    it's amazing (and a bit scary) how stressful being cut off from the internet feels to me now :sorry:

    I love to check in at least once a day, if not more often, to see how we are all doing and how the world is with you ;)

    Hope your day is treating you kindly :)

    Thanks PM...you know its odd but life without Harry is tidier...less frantic & Churchill is loving having the place to himself again...he gets to eat his own food...sunbathe on the back doorstep & doesn't get chased...the floors stay relatively clean...having said that I'd have 'Plumpy' back in an instant...no other dog for me at the moment...possibly I will think about it in a while...maybe next year.

    Monday morning off and running ... 6.6 on the meter ... 23 degrees on the thermometer ... as long as I get out and about before noon I probably won't melt.

    @Shas3 good to see you back.

    What a load of twaddle the article in the link is pedaling. If I had taken that advice then I would be as fat as the fattest fatty on fat road in fat town, be on drugs to control my diabetes and be worrying about my eyes and my feet.
    This sort of thing should come with accountability penalties.

    It was the sheer stupidity and illogicality of this line that disgusted me:

    The amount of carbohydrates you eat will directly affect your blood glucose levels so it is important that you integrate it into your daily diet.
