    Advice required for other foods

    I maintain my preferred weight and avoid highs and lows. So now I low carb. Good thing is, boyfie is an excellent cook and makes tasty meals that aren’t high in carbs. I eat meat, fish, chicken, veggies, fruits mostly. He makes a killer minestrone which is often my lunch. I avoid white foods now.

  9. Oh my, I'm glad you survived all those years from those incompetent Dr.'s you've trusted your life with. I wish you good luck and I hope you'll get the best help this time.
  10. Thank you. Goujons is breaded chicken. I had that and mushrooms last week. But I threw a lot of the bread away.

    93 Finally got my fridge fixed yesterday. Hallaleuah. It's been really inconvenient. I think I have everything "fixed" that needed fixing. Yay for that. Oh and I called the realty company last week that I bought this house from and told them the landscape people were still cutting the grass and they said "Oh! We'll take care of that." Guess what? The landscape crew showed up yesterday again and did my lawn.

    What drives you bananas?

    It's not surprising that vendors are out of stock with all the shutdowns for covid. If the company hasn't got employees to make things the vendors can't sell them. I do agree that they should put "temporarily out of stock" on the website and perhaps we will notify you when we have some. Have patience people are trying their best and I'm sure those vendors would love to have the stock to sell. When this is all over this problem will go away

    What drives you bananas?

    Are you living in a very rural place? Maybe your location has something to do with it. If not, then it's all just a very awkward coincidence that happened the same day. 😂
  15. @ran23 Now that you mentioned it, I checked my Playstore and found some local FM radio apps ready to be installed. You may want to check your Playstore app too, just search "FM radio". Hope it helps.
  16. I must say congratulations on overcoming this ordeal. I hope someday I can live out of these medications too and live a healthier life, thank you.

    COVID-19 vaccine

    Thanks for that explanation Dowling, I wasn't aware of that. I would think that, once the US has produced enough vaccine for this country, that they will begin offering the vaccines to Canada as Canada is our closest ally, along with England. I don't know much about your country's standards for producing these vaccines, but now that the vaccines are being produced, can't these companies come to Canada and use whatever facilities that are available to produce these vaccines? Then again, maybe these companies can not manufacture these vaccines there because the facilities don't have the means to produce them....I don't know. You would think that if these facilities weren't able to produce the vaccines, that the government would step in and improve these facilities so that they could make the vaccines, since that's what the people want.

    COVID-19 vaccine

    No --In the 1990's our government did what some called hollowing out of our biochemical industries and while we do have some facilities they didn't come up to the standards of Moderna or Pfizer so we can't produce our own vaccines. We have to rely on European facilities. We were hoping the USA would help but up until now that is not the case. Believe me once this is over the Canadian people will demand that we have that capability again and we'll never be put in this position again. One Canadian company was developing a vaccine but it didn't come soon enough to beat out Pfizer or Moderna so it was abandoned. It's a shame since the process that they used was developed by that facility in Canada. I agree with you when you say Governments are the pits. They run a popularity contest and many are in it for what they can get for themselves. I know that sounds jaded but the situation we are in sucks

    COVID-19 vaccine

    Dowling, I'm curious...why is there a shortage of vaccines in your country? I thought that the companies that are producing the vaccines, were also producing them in your country. Is that not the case?

    I am not a fan of the Fluidmaster fill valve. The reason is that they are too slow to fill the toilet. I will admit that they are easy to repair, but I prefer the old ballcock fill valve. They are much faster at filling the tank. I like other Fluidmaster products. Right now, I'm using one of their waxless seals for one of my toilets, and it works really well. I can't use a wax seal because the idiot who built the house used the wrong type of reducing bushing in the plastic (ABS plastic) drain pipe. The drain pipe is 3 inches in diameter, and the horn on the bottom of the toilet is 2 inches in diameter, so he glued into the 3 inch drain pipe, a bushing, but it's the wrong type. The correct type would be a plastic bushing that is three inches in diameter on the outside, and two inches in diameter on the inside. Instead, he used a bushing that it three inches in diameter on the outside, but it reduces to 2 inches, three quarters of an inch from the top on the inside. That leaves a three quarter inch gap where there is no bushing. That gap will, over time, cause the wax seal to slowly wash away, and the toilet will leak. The waxless seal doesn't use wax, so there is nothing to wash away.

    An 87 (4.83) today. I also have a 24 inch monitor. I've had it for years, and I like it. It has 2 external USB ports on it, which I am using. My keyboard also has 2 external USB ports on it, which I'm not using at this time. When I need to buy a monitor, I look at reviews of monitors, and see which one has the best reviews, as well as how it did in benchmark tests. I don't care what it costs, I just want a really good monitor.(I think that this monitor cost $600). Since I've always bought them online, they are shipped to my house, usually with free shipping. Once I get a new monitor, I calibrate it with one of my colorimeters. Monitors don't come from the factory already calibrated, since that would be impossible. The graphics card in your computer is the reason why, since each graphics card reproduces colors differently. The reason why you should calibrate your monitor is because, once it's calibrated, what you see on your monitor is exactly how that picture looks. If you don't calibrate your monitor, what you see on your monitor, isn't what others are seeing on their monitors, and the difference can be dramatic.
  23. Yesterday
  24. ^^^ here's the original thread So anyway, not gonna go into the full details, but I have an appointment in a week from now where I'll be meeting with some people who are gonna get me with a proper primary care physician, with 0 ties to the people I've been seeing for over 5 years now. Apparently my dad told the woman on the phone who had set this up for me, about what was happening with me (she has Type 2) about how I eat the same stuff every day (not cuz I wanna) but just so I can /try/ to get some semblance of how carbs effect me, and he mentioned as well about how it's always different each day. Where I might need to up my dosage a few units, or lower it a bit, and how it's never consistent. APPARENTLY she told him that's definitely really odd for someone who is "supposed" to have Type 1. So I'm just glad I'm finally getting with more competent people

    8 which I know must be a lie but how can I prove it. No sale on monitors here.. I paid $198AU for a 24inch. I always feel fleeced when I deal with that store but they are local. My good fortune was in finding a carpark right at the door of the store. I was there when they opened & put the quarantine notice on the dashboard, so I knew my dog would be OK I even kept a straight face when asking that the salesman carry the monitor to the car, showing him my bandaid clad thumb for reasoning.
