A definite 'second' here for the above message. Lily hates to be high 
or low. She feels 'good' when her control is good. She to can "taste" 
the fruits of her own labors.

And.... keeps lousy records (none at all recently). Oh well..... she 
is in very good control and works hard at it. I can't fault her for 
lousy paperwork when everything else is good.
