General Discussion / Re: DWTS!
« Last post by Steve C on April 14, 2014, 08:32:23 AM »
I haven't been watching much telly either. With living so remote I have to have Sky (cable) so I supposedly have somewhere like 100 channels. That said, storms make it hard to keep channels tuned and even when they are, the shows are brutal! haha

As for reading, I'm mad into it. I would be more 'old school' as I love the feel and smell of a book. Going to bookshops would my version of going to church. I loved Clive Cussler (adventure) but they seem a bit formulaic and at present I am reading Bernard Cornwell (historical novels covering actual events in early britain). I'm reading Cornwell's book so fast you'd think I was eating them. http://www.bernardcornwell.net/

When in a gritty crime mood, there's no man like Ed Bruen. A Irishman from Galway who writes the 'Jack Taylor' crime novels that take place in Galway where I used to live. Its great to read a story where I know the locations like the back of my hand. The Jack Taylor series have been made into several tv programmes. He writes other books as well besides Jack taylor, some have even been made into films.

Mine is just 465. I don'y know why I bother to test or take Insulin. Sometimes it just goes crazy and for no reason. I eat the same thing and do the same things every day. I'm told consistency is the key to control butit doesn't seem to work for me. I feel it's because of my blood disorder.

I  haven't seen DWTS but I watch so little TV that mine was out for two weeks from a snow storm and I didn't know it until the Lineman knocked on the door to tell me it was back up.

There's a new drug designed specifically for that type of pain. It's called Lyrica. I tried it and it works. While it's prescribed for three times per day, I only used it "As Needed" when things acted up and it worked well like that as well.
