Putting this in the public domain may not be an overly great idea and I'm more then aware that I'm sure to have a good mix of posts ranging from: 1. Stop moaning and get on with it. 2. Slops "I've Shit 'em". 3. Melingerer. 4. A bit of timely and educated advice. Although as a big boy who has been around far to many blocks and have had his fair share of taking the pi$$ of other unfortunates, I understand the humour I expereinced during my tenure on the hotplate which was always a 2 way conversation is a way of dealing with life that does not tolerate the weak or infirm because we are all roughie toughies and can still be found on these glorious pages. Anyway to the point. I'm 41 (that looks terrible) and have just be diagnosed with type 2 Diabetes. If there is anybody out there who can shed some light and give me some advice it would be appricated. I have been trawling the web and have read a great deal so please no "try this web site" as I have likely read it already. So there you go, get on with it and do your worst. And no it has nothing to do with my splendid culinary skills I demonstrated to a generaly uncaring and uneducated group of troops on the other side of the demarcation line called the hotplate.
