Re: [IPk] Balance

Hi John

I take back what some of what I said then. Maybe we didn't get Balance then.
There was some mix up and we weren't getting them at the time.

What are you implying about Daily Mail readers then;-)  we do have the Times
at the weekend, Mail in the week.

I am I right in saying that Balance doesn't carry adverts for pumps usually?

I did send an article to Balance about Sasha having diabetes and celiac.
Debbie Hanscombe's suggested that they might like an article so I sent it in
haven't heard anything though.  I think they would be more likely to
consider it for the Link Up mag for parents of children with D which is only
a small 4 page leaflet than a mag.
