    Hello eveyone from Tent

    Post by Tent on Thu Nov 06 2014, 01:25

    Hello everyone,

    I stumbled on this forum whilst looking for articles on survival. I’m a retire council employee and have type two diabetes, atherosclerosis and  arthritis but at least I’ve still retained my health.

    I’m on holiday at the moment roughing it in the wildness. But hope to be able to contribute to the forum when I get home.  

    I’m a avid student of endocrinology, amateur dentistry and diets. So I’m a wealth of opinions.

    "and have type two diabetes, atherosclerosis and  arthritis but at least I’ve still retained my health."

    And a sense of humour, it remains to be seen if this joker has retained his mind.

    Welcome to the crazy world of diabetes, almost worth becoming a diabetic for the craic.

    "Craic" (/kræk/ krak), or "crack", is a term for news, gossip, fun, entertainment, and enjoyable conversation, particularly prominent in Ireland. Wiki

    Sherlock Holmes and His sidekick Dr. Watson go on a camping trip, set up the tent site, and fall asleep. Some hours later, Holmes wakes his trusty friend with a shake…

    “Watson, look up at the sky and tell me what you see.”

    Watson replies, “I see millions of bright stars.”

    Holmes then asked… “What does that tell you?”

    Watson thought for a moment before answering: “Astronomically speaking, it tells me that there are millions of galaxies and potentially billions of planets. Astrologically, it tells me that Saturn is in Leo. Timewise, it appears to be approximately a quarter past three. Theologically, it’s evident the Lord is all-powerful and we are small and insignificant. Meteorologically, it seems we will have a beautiful day tomorrow. Sherlock, What does it tell you?”

    Holmes is silent for a moment, then speaks. “Watson, you moron, someone has stolen our tent.”

    I've read a few posts on this forum implying that I'm a troll.

    I'm not a troll,  I'm new to the forum. I do have  different ideas than you but in no way am I a troll. Its not a very friendly way of greeting a new member.

    You being a female NO but an Arsenal fan that's another matter lol!

    I hate this medium as words written down come across more harsher than when spoken. Am I coming across rude?

    So Zand it rude to ask a female her age so how heavy are you?

    OK well Arsenal is my 2nd team because that's the one my husband and kids support, so I go to matches from time to time.  The team closest to my heart though is Leeds United as I've liked them since the 1970's.

    I'm almost 57 and I'm extremely heavy (trying to be lighter though!)
