    A surprising 5.2 this morning, probably because I’m awake earlier than usual. Have a good day all.

    Stabbo saw fit to declare a failed day yesterday with 5.7. Cold still lingering - wish I was a mouse in the Keto experiments 'cos it doesn't suit my immune system. Too many little episodes like this over the past five years to be coincidence. Apparently one needs to eat meat and nuts - bleep that for a game of soldiers.

    Good morning all.

    @DJC3 and PenguinMum -- Wow, great fasting levels.
    @ianpspurs -- Keeping my fingers crossed that you get over your cold soon.

    Fasting levels were 5.0 today.

    Have a great day, everyone.
