    It is hard to read, but at the top of the back of her shirt, it has a quote with a signature. It was “I am love...” with more to follow. Might be an expression of christian beliefs. Barbaric thoughts has more pictures and one of them shows the quote.

    There is a lot of good advice from some of the comments to you, about fish oil and omega3. One more thing, the thing that got my morning glucose reading down for the first time was a diet from a book called Mastering Leptin by Byron Richardson. He also has a blog with information.
    He talks about spacing meals apart and not eating snacks between meals. This helps your pancreas function as it should and allows it to have some rest time between meals. The book explains it. When I first started on his diet, my numbers dropped down right away and have stayed down consistently. Amazon carries the book. Best of luck to you, and your wife.

    2ndDivisionVet, you’re doing the right thing. I was in the same situation two years ago, numbers not exactly the same but pretty close. I got mine down with a low carb diet, a few supplements and dropped 35 pounds in just a few months.
    The only thing I can see that I did was some supplements to get me jump started. It took a few months to get things to the normal range. I didn’t start exercising until after I lost the weight. There is a good fiber supplement that also helps. Investigate glycemic load concepts as well. That is how much a particular food can spike your blood glucose. If you need any help with advice I could probably help you. I decide what kind of things to eat based on the glycemic load, or how much of a portion size to eat.
    I want to help, will pray. Have hope. I know what you are doing can be successful.

    “Hate to say it but I am already sick of Mitch Daniels.”

    Double and triple that. You live in Florida. He impacts my life much more. He is a snake.
    Remember the pro life bills he has signed, that he said he supported after he signed it? Before the session, he was telling the legislators to pull back those bills and just do his education bills. Legislator said we can do two things at one time and filed the bills anyway. I don’t consider that to be much “support”. Some people like him in his state and some don’t. I’m sure someone will say they like him. Personally, I don’t. He isn’t the worst we could have had but he certainly isn’t the best and I don’t know that he has any principles.

    This is an educated guess on my part, but she said something last week on Judge Napolitano’s TV show that might be a reason for the latest round of attacks.
    She said the GOP was taking baby steps in trying to cut spending and people were going to grow tired of or be dissatisfied with what they are doing [Boehner & house leadership]. She said this in context of the newest CR.
    That would be a reason for the country club republicans to go after her.
    She is right on to have said that, and she is right, people are going to be tired and dissatisfied with what the leadership is doing in the House. She is also right that the little they are doing is baby steps. Pence also gave a speech in the last few days saying they need to do more and do it now. [imho we need adult leadership in congress]
    She urged the newly elected tea party people not to be drawn into the vortex.
    Those would be fighting words for traditional establishment Republicans.

    Thanks for the additional information.
    I knew he wasn’t for the right to work law, and some bills on social issues. He spoke out on some of them before the legislative session started.
    To me, he does not act on principle, don’t even know if he has any principles. I’ve heard other stories about him and to me they all point to a lack of character or courage, or both.
    The story here is going to end far differently than it did in Wisconsin, because Daniels is NO Scott Walker unfortunately.

    All I know about the teachers in Indiana is that they are being laid off. Their pension fund is set to be bankrupt in 2019. They were hit hard in the pension fund when the Chrysler deal happened.

    State treasurer Mourdock took that to the Supreme Court, where he didn’t exactly win but they left the door open for further consideration.

    I’m not crying for the teachers, they make much more than most people in the private sector. But I don’t know what is going to happen to them.

    Daniels took away collective bargaining for public sector employees when he first took office in an executive order. That may apply to teachers but I’m not sure about that.

    I’m in the middle of something in Indiana related to Daniels. It feels like the sort of things Fishtalk says about Delaware. I don’t know if I’m up to what she does when she posts but I am going to try.

    First a new story on the Hill about Daniels:

    Daniels is endorsing Lugar in 2012 after the Tea Party made him an issue and endorsed a different candidate.

    The tea party candidate is the state treasurer Richard Mourdock, at least many tea party groups do support him. I don’t know that anyone speaks for the entire state. It is an effort that is being organized.

    This is from Mourdock’s campaign website, contrasting his positions to Lugar. There were some things I didn’t know which I am ashamed to admit since I do pay attention, close attention to such things.

    This is from Mourdock’s announcement speech, where he discusses Lugar regarding the Indiana tea party:
    “Mr. Lugar even went so far as to say that the Tea Party needs to: “get real.” Please understand, I know you ARE real. I understand the “reality” in which you live and it is that of the heartland that IS Indiana. YOU are not disconnected from reality, it is those living in that fantasy land of Washington DC where taxpayers are seen as revenue sources and burdensome regulations are seen as the product of a good day’s work.… It is the elite of Washington DC who must “get real.” “

    This next part is more interesting to me, because in 2006 I contacted everyone listed on the Rep Indiana website about Lugar, and I could never vote for him again. I received no replies, but Mourdock said a number of people on the state committee talked to him as individuals and asked him to run against Lugar. Not the state Republican party but individual committeemen. They he started calling county chairs. Ended up seventy four percent of the county chairs endorsed Mourdock. The remaining ones did not endorse Lugar but said they would not be endorsing anyone until after the primary. Source is here:

    So what kind of a mess is this, that all of a sudden Daniels is saying he is endorsing Lugar after he said he would not when the tea party made their statements about Lugar and being opposed to him?

    Looks like more of the same establishment Republicans forcing a really bad establishment politician down our throats, which is what happened in 2010 with Dan Coats. In the primary, two tea party candidates ran against Coats and divided the vote so Coats won. [Marlin Stutzman, Hofstetter] If you put the votes of the two together it would have knocked out Coats. So now we are stuck for six years with the establishment doesn’t have a spine Dan Coats.
    Marlin Stutzman was elected in the fall to the House of Representatives.

    The tea party in Indiana is trying to be united this time behind one candidate, which would be Mourdock. He is very popular, has independent voter support, is pro life, strong on fiscal conservative credentials and is a constitutional conservative. There are other conservatives who want to run but he is probably the strongest candidate and he lacks nothing on conservative credentials. He has a lot of support among the Republican party elected officials.

    And Daniels wants to endorse Lugar. Probably thinks he owes him a favor.

    The tea party in this state is trying to build and gather strength. There are a few groups and the Indianapolis tea party is trying to organize more groups in other counties, including my county.

    I don’t like Daniels. I REALLY do not like Daniels. I’m not alone in this state. I like the Lt. Governor, she is a solid conservative, and he picked her so he would have some support among conservatives. He likes to take credit for things he hasn’t done, and is now sending her out to events where he has problems.

    Just wanted to give this thread an idea of what is going on in this state, since MD will probably be on lots of talk shows in the run up to the election. It might be a good thing if the fleebaggers continued to stay out of state in Indiana, and he had to keep calling more sessions of the legislature, because it might prevent him from running for president. He said he was not going to do anything about running for president until this problem is resolved.

    Pence said he wouldn’t announce until the session of the legislature ends. Which was supposed to be the end of April, until the fleebagging craziness happened. Who knows when the legislature will finish now?

    Job growth events. Twice, to people that I know.
    My cousin’s employer had a big press event with the Governor. Supposedly going to create lots of jobs. The next morning the company laid off all the employees except a small handful, and a couple of weeks later took them all back as contract employees instead of full time employees with benefits. But no NEW jobs as promised.
    Then in my husband’s hometown, Daniels did a big press availability about a new business moving into town to create lots of jobs [and hope] but after the press event the new business never opened and never created a single new job. They’ve lost at least half of their population since that business closed down, in the last few years.
    Still hanging on to the HOPE that that new business will come to town and create jobs.
    A friend said that they saw an investigative report on a local TV station investigating this issue. That job growth events were smoke and mirrors. They interviewed Daniels and went through the claims and the numbers and couldn’t verify Daniels’ numbers. I’ve been looking for it so I could document this but haven’t found it yet.
    With all the press involved in his idea to run for president, no one has looked into it.
    Daniels never does a follow up after he does these press events, when things don’t work out as he said they would.
    He disappoints a lot of people.
    There is more but this is enough for me.
    And then he brags on his website about how many state employee jobs he has eliminated since he’s been governor. That might be a positive and might be a negative depending on how he did it.

    “Stay in Indiana, brother. I like you but ...”

    Why would you wish something like that on Hoosiers? I voted for him last time but hope I never need to decide again. I know more about him than I did in 2008. He does not need to be president. He’s getting a pass from the national media from some negatives on his record. I wonder who is pulling those strings.

    Thanks Al,for posting the picture.

    There was an entry posted that (11) Palin/Quam and (7)Davis/Davis had gone ahead and cut the trail when they were trying to get out of Nome. There was 7 feet of new snow, storm surge in the bay, flooding at every waterway where it is usually covered with ice. If they can go over the ice, the trip is faster. Very, very dangerous, and very brave for the four that went ahead to cut trail.

    I believe the trail was cut before the race started, but with the bad weather it had to be done again. Cory Davis is a rookie to this race, so a shout out to him.
    I checked out all the links on the C4P website, so that is how I saw this info.
    I’m clumsy with posting pictures so I appreciate that you did.

    C4P has a thread about the race, and have sometimes posted info before it gets on the Iron Dog website.
    They have links to other sources, like the facebook page for the race and sometimes Alaska news sources.
    They have info on the happenings in Nome. The guys are on the trail again, and haven’t been out too long. Under a yellow flag, in three groups to Unlakeet. Lots of pictures, I’m sorry I don’t remember how to post pictures.

    We are fortunate to have individuals who are willing to take the arrows [Rush Limbaugh said this today]. The followup post said the lawmakers had been literally pushed around by the protesters. Where do we find such men and women?

    Just like the founders did, who risked their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor. Many of the signers of the Declaration did not go unscathed from their stand.

    These guys in Wisconsin are NOT sunshine soldiers.
