Re: [IP] inserting Silhouettes

Thanks for your tips Lois - that's been a problem for me too!  I've only
been on the pump for a couple of months, the soft-set doesn't work for me,
while everytime I change the silhouette set, end up stuck all over that
darned flap of paper on the silhouette.  I'm also going to try your
technique for insertion!  THANKS!!!
