    6.9 - Yesterday was 6.1. And yes, yes, yes, I did have Fish ‘n Chips last night :) . I’ll keep an eye on the numbers today. Another evidenced-based day of “stabbing”.

    Have a good Saturday, Folkies!

    I was asked in the Low Chat forum about having TWO machines. My reply got tooooo long, so I’m rather posting it here. It may give others an alternative to gaining results at home……

    Although I use my original as a Control/Check infrequently. Maybe once in 4 months. However, as you can see, this can be confusing. For the last six months, I use a cute lil, Agamatrix Bluetooth gizmo, which connects directly to my iPhone and iPad and syncs my numbers to my devices. I get results in all sorts of ways: Tables; Graphs; I can set my own Ranges and tap in notes on food and so on; and I could/can produce a Text report which I could even post/deliver here, and bore you’ll further ;)
