    Hmmm ... my cousin has a Harley ...

    Now I'll probably spend the evening with Rand-McNally mapping I-20 and I-10 ...

    Tho' with my back as it is these days, I would probably want one of these:

    Actually, I'd probably rather do a "Helen Wheels" kind of journey instead.

    5.3 this morning. Had visitors last night and opened too many bottles. Regretting it a bit now but it was a lovely evening.

    @Ziggy2017 I do hope you’re ok. Let us know if your mum phones the hospital.

    Morning all. No testing this morning partly due to investigating what Dario/MyDario monitoring system is all about. I was given that system as a Christmas present from my sons so would like to say I have used it and found it useful. Anyone on here have any experience of it?
    Have simply spiffing days and pip pip old toots.

    Good morning all, got a 5.7(Heinz) at 7am, peaked at 9.5 two hrs after a slice of my daughters Christmas cake last night, but it was lovely.

    same goes for lemon tea. Just a chunk of lemon with boiling water on top gives a refreshing drink which according to some has health benefits.

    Good morning all
    5.7 today - Another higher one for me after a family get together yesterday, nothing particularly naughty but just larger amounts and eaten much later!
    Off on motorway again later this morning - taking mum back up north in time for her 88th birthday party tomorrow.
    Hope everyone has a good day - whatever you’re doing.

    Morning all, a 6.1 this morning, maybe my liver is clearing itself of all the wine over xmas day and getting a chance to mop up the other stuff, not that theres a lot of carbs there. My only regression over the period has been a couple of chestnuts , delicious and seemed prudish not to indulge . Glad to hear everyone got great gifts, I got some lovely socks which I must say are much more useful than frankincense and myrrh . Have a great day all. ... Must be close to coffee time...

    9.4 at 8 am but it did stay in the 7s through the night. I tried eating some cheese at 11.30 pm to see if the ‘eat something fatty before bed’ trick worked. Result inconclusive. Loved the story @jjraak

    Morning All. 7.7 at 0800. I was going to say nothing sweet passed my lips yesterday but remembered I did have half a parsnip and bread sage and onion stuffing. Oh well back to reality now....I am very reactive to bad things...going to try OMAD today and eat that late afternoon. Facetimed my friend yesterday and she seems/looks so much better. @Ziggy2017 hope you will improve today let us know...sending hugs.
    My Christmas presents were mainly candles and darkest choc (Hotel choc and bars Lindt 90) enough to last all year. Also got a very nice fine knit wool poncho. And a bottle of gin!
    Have a great day everyone. Stay well, safe and hypo free.

    Brilliant cars, easy to drop in 2.8 cologne engine with 5 speed. One of my best friends fabricated engine mounts and put a 2.8 into a mark 1 Escort along with wiring loom. I had customised mark 4's and 5'.

    Good morning all.

    @Ziggy2017 -- Hugs. Hope you are feeling better soon. Let us know what the HCPs at the hospital say if you decide to go.
    @ianpspurs -- Just googled "my dario." Seems pretty nifty.

    Fasting blood sugars today were 4.6.
