Re: [IP] a carb is a carb is a carb and by any other name would still raise your bg



Hey Liz!

I was also up before the chickens this morning. It is MUGGY here as well
(Williamsburg, Virginia) but . . . the reason I was up differs a bit! I
zipped out for a ride on my motorcycle ;-) Now I'll be smiling all day -
which is good as I have lot of new computers to get up and running at the
college. The kids will return soon!

Not bad for a 55 year old girl kid, eh?
Hope you squashed the migraines . . . don't they have some new drug out
specifically for migraines?
