About Me

I'm one smart, tough cookie. Go ahead and try to make me crumble.

Congrats on getting your A1C down below 7! Keep up the good job.

I was able to get my A1C down from 7.1 in June to 6.1 earlier this month. Hoping to get it into the 5s by December.

My go-to breakfast practically every morning is more like a (healthy) dessert and consists of 1 container of vanilla Activia yogurt mixed with one half sliced banana, 24 raw almonds and 1 chopped square of 90% dark chocolate.

Did he hear it through the grope vine?

It hasn't had any major repairs except the usual brake jobs and tire replacements. I don't take it

long distances anymore so it costs next to nothing to maintain it at this point. It recently had a recall and passed the recall repair with flying colors. The Honda dealership was very impressed with its condition. Our primary car is a 2011 Toyota Camry we bought new.

This is the end of its 16th year and its still going strong.

Honda CRV made at the end of 2007 (2008 model year). I leased it new and then bought it at the end of the lease term.

I was conceived at the tail end of 1959.

2 for me two-day!

Wordle 7-7-7 was a lucky one for me!

Alfred Hitchcock and The Three Investigators

I read every single one that my middle school had in the library. Nancy Drew who?!?!?

I loved Bill Peet books, especially How Droofus the Dragon Lost His Head and Huge Harold.

Read all of the Little House on the Prairie and The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings series.

A bookmobile came to my lake front community during the summer months. What great memories of anticipating its arrival, boarding it when it stopped, selecting books during the allotted time and then handing the librarian my library card to check them out.

He's only a few years younger than me and was raised right here in Central New York!

This wack-a-doodle self-anointed "pure blood" should become a blood donor if his blood is so pure.

He probably wouldn't make it through the screening process to even be eligible to donate. If he did make it to being an actual blood donor, can his blood be given to the tiniest patients and the immunocompromised?


Type O Negative

O negative is the most common blood type used for transfusions when the blood type is unknown. This is why it is used most often in cases of trauma, emergency, surgery and any situation where blood type is unknown.

O negative is the universal blood type.

O negative blood type can only receive O negative blood.

O negative donors who are CMV negative are known as Heroes for Babies at the Red Cross because it is the safest blood for transfusions for immune deficient newborns. Learn more about how you can be a Hero for a Baby.

Only 7% of the population have O negative blood. Due to the its versatility for transfusions, it is in high demand. In an emergency, it is the blood product of choice. For example, just one car accident victim can require up to 100 units of O neg.

Meeting the demand for O negative blood is always a priority for the Red Cross.

O negative is the first blood supply to run out during a shortage due to its universality.


Only 2% of people worldwide are both Type O- and CMV-negative, and this combination makes them the exact type needed for baby blood transfusions.

"Pure blood" my arse!

He can STFU and go back to the rock he was living under.


A true "pure blood" who is Type O Rh negative and CytoMegaloVIRUS negative and FULLY VACCINATED!

4 for me because I made a "dum dum" mistake!
