If you life long enough you will get diabetes. Same with cataracts. It comes with age.

I have three aunts age 80 - 90, one on my mom's side, one on my dad's side and one by marriage. All three access medical care well and have blood draws as recommended by their physicians. None of these three aunts has diabetes. None is even close to developing any sort of insulin resistance. All three have maintained normal weights across their lives.

I would amend what Gary says as follows: "If you live long enough and struggle with weight management, you will get diabetes."

I simply believe, that given the choices currently available, he IS the best candidate.

The Republicans in my family are inclined to disagree.

I come from a rather conservative family.
(They claim there was a hospital error when I was born and I was accidentally switched at birth...)

Anyway, this weekend I had the opportunity to ask four staunch conservatives in my family if they would be voting for the Donald in November. Three said they would be voting for Hillary and one said he was planning to abstain.

How smart are the school administration and/or teacher(s)...
Misspellings and all, Texas 2nd grader's note gets her home early


I can absolutely see how this one happened. Over the years I have worked with many children of parents who do not speak English as a first language. Often their literacy skills in their primary language are limited as well, due to the parents having had quite limited access to education in their native countries. A note like the one in this article could easily have been written by an adult with limited English proficiency and/or limited educational exposure.

I have also worked with some children whose parents have severe learning challenges. A note like the one in this article could easily have been written by an adult with limited literacy skills secondary to learning challenges.

We spent most of the afternoon in the yard today.

Eric and I have been out of town since Thursday, but we got home in time to spend some time in our yard as well.

I saw a shrike chase a crow away. That was pretty impressive as the crow was much bigger than the shrike and probably much smarter. That little shrike was amazingly aggressive.

Eric fixed the drip system to my vegetable garden and we finally put in a row of beans. I had already put in some zucchini, patty-pan squash, tomatoes, jalipeno peppers and a cucumber, but I was waiting to put in the first row of beans until Eric had time to fix our drip system. In a month or so, we will put in a second crop of beans. I like to stagger the rows for continuous production. I still need to put in a patch of basil, so that I can make pesto, but once that is done all that will be left to do is pull weeds and harvest delicious summer vegetables. I can't wait!!!

My mother was put on Pioglitazone (AKA Actos) when diagnosed with Type II diabetes. She took it for years and it really seemed to work very well for her.

Still hurting in My left leg, all I had to do was go outside, spray for weeds at one end of the 60'x13.5' mobile home, then down to the other end, 3 out of 4 sides and I'm about out of weed killer and a $75 fine is ahead.

Are you sure about the fine? The picture you posted didn't look that bad and it looked like the trailer next to you had weeds too.
