    Yes I lost a whole bunch of them around the time my mother died, 2009 - 2011. Not a few had outlived their husbands but died soon after their dogs. This is the kind of place where once you arrive you never leave except in a pine box, over the years I've kind of gotten used to losing people on a regular basis.

    "This is the kind of place where once you arrive you never leave except in a pine box"

    When we lived in Barton On Sea the place was known as Gods Waiting Room. The good thing was, when reading the local obituary's the average age at death was often in the eighties. I knew a few old people and a few were type two diabetics, still doing their own gardening and highly active. Some had been diabetics for over 20 years, no complications and ALL low carbers. This was the standard method of control years ago, before the junk flogging dietitians and big pharma had a bag full of virtually useless drugs to flog. The way to control type two diabetes was well known over one hundred years ago.

    Check out the excellent free to read book on the correct diet for diabetics. Diabetic Cookery Recipes And Menus by Rebecca W Oppenheimer printed 1917 I have left the book open at page 12, check out the foods to stay well clear of.

    Type two diabetic-low carb diet (50 carbs per day) and two 500mg Metformin pills per day. Apart from diagnosis HbA1c almost 12-all HbA1c results none diabetic. For over eight years my diabetes medication has not changed. My weight has remained stable, I have suffered no ill effects from my diet whatsoever. Every blood test has proved, I took the right road to my diabetic salvation. For almost seven years, I have asked medical professionals and naysayers, how do I maintain non diabetic BG levels on two Metformin other than low carb ? The silence has been deafening !

    Yes quite, and in the local churchyards there are plenty of octagenarians or more dating back a century or two. I suspect this will NOT be the case so much in the future.

    Yeah it actually rained here today, first time in ages, and forecast to get rapidly worse.

    Baby Blackbirds turned out last week. Really I should have got the hose out already, quite astonishing. DON'T MENTION THE LAWN DAMMIT!

    Have had to employ the services of a gardner for first time this spring so I won't have the chore of cutting the grass this year. Would hate to move onto an estate with a postage stamp sized garden. D.
