Re: [IP] 20/20 show



Alright, George, and Pat!!!

I ALWAYS test in public.  I test at the counter at work, I test at the table
at restaurants, I test where ever I am, whenever I need to.  No one has ever
let me know that they are offended, and most times, someone will say, "Is
your sugar ok?"  I just smile and answer, pull out my pump, and push those
buttons as I head for the dessert tray!
LOL
