    5.9 this morning. I think due to a couple of glasses of wine the night before. Might have to stop it completely.

    Thanks for that. I just looked at my HbA1c test results. Last year's doesn't give ALT level, but the 2016 printout shows a serum ALT level of 25 IU/L, it also shows the recommended level as being between 10.00 - 50.00 IU/L, so it seems I don't have a leaky liver. :)

    Good Morening Ladies and Gentlemen and to those who don't care about who wins the national draughts championship.

    A little 6.2 for me this morning.

    Well folks Mrs J and myself are waiting for family to arrive, Welsh Canadians who will be staying till Monday. It should be a good laugh with lots of feasting. We hope they pick up some road kill, a moose or black bear on the way here.

    Have a good one folks.
