Catching up on things. Just had a bowl of soup and a cup of coffee and am contemplating a second cup. The world is still dark out there and I'm feeling like hibernating today. Alas, errands and work beckon.

Diabetics are encouraged to have fruits. But on a limited basis. They can't go out and buy six pears and wolf them down in one sitting. Some fruits and veggies have more natural sugar than others. So the diabetic patient has to pick and choose very carefully.

GG,
I am only very restricted for a short time until my body can rid itself of the candida and then I will start adding the healthier items like fruit back into my diet. I am on several natural supplements at the moment which give me the nutrients I am missing and help with the cleansing process. I totally understand your concern - but the the truth is, I am feeling better over all than I think I ever have in my life. I honestly think this has been my main health problem all along and has just been overlooked for other things.

i'm intrigued, what sort of book are you writing, sweets, and how long have you been at it? put me down for a copy when your book is ready, okay? now, get off the computer and get writing!!


i'm in big need of advice from someone in the know about teens today. here's the thing: i'm doing all my christmas shopping online this year. i'm stuck about a gift for my oldest grandson. he's 14, and wears a size 14 shoe. that's big. so, not a whole lot to choose from, usually. i found a really cool pair of sneakers in his size. they are skate sneakers. only thing is, my grandson is not a skateboarder per se. am i wrong to worry about committing a fashion faux pas here? is it forgivable in teen circles for a non-skater to be hanging out, chilling, in a pair of skateboarder camo vaiders? or would that be a gross misstep....

I'm glad you're feeling better, Laurie. My sister was recently diagnosed with low thyroid; taking Synthroid has made all the difference in the world for her. Take care.

Teen boy footwear is very personal based on what's cool in his group. I'd go with a Foot Locker (or other) gift card for whatever amount you want to spend. We adults are not qualified to choose teen footwear.

LOL! That got quite a laugh out of me -- and I agree. I'd be afraid to go out on that limb myself!

First, skater shoes are popular, no matter if you are a skater or not. Currently, loud colors are in. Though I do agree with gift cards.

My novel is fictional and covers global economic disaster. The main character, Audrey, is seperated from her husband during a violent riot. While searching for him she also searches for spirituality and inner peace.
