    Big hug, @Cumberland, I am so sorry about these lows. I hope the reducing will help.

    I love this. May I re-steal it anonymously please and post it where I can see it a lot? The mountains look like the little town I want to move to, and when I've thought about moving there I keep thinking that it will be a move onward and not back to any place I've lived before.

    P.S. It also reminds me of me when I was vacationing in West Sussex last time I was in England.

    Good luck with the Headspace or whatever mindfulness you choose. I just like his voice and find it soothing. Some similar apps or YouTube videos I’ve tried have people with irritating voices so I get annoyed - the opposite effect to what’s intended!

    @jjraak I am glad that it isn't just me. If course I had forgotten that excess protein turns to glucose and I certainly did have heaps more protein than I needed.

    It was a brief visit to a little village a short ride from Gatwick, on my way home from Cambridge. Lovely countryside.

    I love Five-0's new headgear! :D

    Of course, I can't thank their fashion consultant publicly, or even acknowledge that I've actually seen the new uniform headgear, and I will deny ever having been anywhere near Hawai'i, or West Sussex, or anywhere but my living room sofa pinned down by the weight of a hefty 10-lb KittenCat -- that's not a £10 kittencat because this one is priceless as are we all ...

    "'I can't eat cornbread because of this aggravating diabetes,'" says the rector. Then he bites into a tuna fish sandwich on whole wheat with no mayonnaise.

    It's "just" a novel, and it was published a quarter of a century ago. But I'm rereading it for the first time in about 19 years and every time the poor man takes a bite of birthday cake, or potatoes, I cringe for him. He's just been diagnosed, at age 60, his doctor has taken him off doughnuts and creme-filled snack cakes, and put him on meat and potatoes, fresh fruit, low-fat milk, and fruit juice.

    And apparently doctors haven't learned any different in all these years.
