I have been struggling with my blood sugar

I’m not in any wise diabetic, but I’m trying to keep it that way- so I’m monitoring my blood glucose and taking it easy.

Mostly, it means not eating anything that tastes good. Well, sweet. See, I don’t have a sweet tooth, I have 32 of them. So I love candy, sweet tea, regular coke, chocolate, any kind of pie cake or pastry you can imagine. And I’m having none of that. Pretty much, if I eat it, it has to have had a face.

And if I screw up, and have something I shouldnt, it ends up causing my blood glucose to soar. And only serious vigilance will bring it back down. No, it doesn’t get dangerously high, yet, but again, thatis what I’m trying to avoid. The worst thing, is the fact that when it does go high, it seems the only effective way to get ti back down quickly is to exercise. And I would rather take a shower in a bombay storm drain than exercise.

This morning’s outgoing mail.

Enclosed please find three packets of tomato seeds. I purchased them at a garden center, hoping that the quality I found there would be higher than the quality of no name brand seeds purchased at a big box store.
The seeds in question never germinated. I tried again, no luck. The starters were kept moist and warm and in the sun.
The Walmart seeds I bought last year,germinated. Every single one in the pack. The pack of seeds cost me $.50 at Walmart, and there were a couple dozen seeds in it, a couple pennies a plant. Fairly nice tomatoes, too.
The Burpee seeds I purchased totaled $6.07 for not so much as a single plant. I ended up buying starts for about $12 to have some tomatoes this season. Those are doing fine. And they are the same varieties as the seeds I purchased, more or less.
I do not expect a refund, though I would take it if you would send it. Rather, I would like it if whoever is in charge of Tomato seed production would take these three seed packets and insert them into a bodily orifice of their choosing, packets and all. Possibly adding a pinecone for luck.
Thank you for your time


Operation Blazing Sword

is a group started by Erin Palette to get LGBT people interested and educated in firearms use for self defense. I don’t know Erin personally except through Facebook, but I know the idea is good.

I have tried to get my NRA instructors certification before, but have not been able to get to the classes. I am not an NRA certified instructor. But if you’d like some instruction about safe gun handling, storage, use, trigger discipline, I’ll be happy to help in any way I can. I can put a wide variety of firearms in your hands and teach you how to safely shoot each one. Having no handgun marksmanship skills, I will not attempt to teach them to you. I can almost hit a refrigerator box from the inside, so get your marksmanship skills elsewhere.

I will have to say this.

I will not be teaching Lesbian/Bisexual/Gay/transgender people. I will not be teaching any of those groups.

I will only teach people. That’s right, you have to be a person to learn from me. I am not interested, at all, in what you do with your wobbly dangly bits, whose wobbly dangly bits you rub them up against, and how many of you there are. The range is not an appropriate place for that when shooting is occurring.

That is all.
