Good I hope.You won't believe this but it took me some time to figure out what that figure was before you name but eventually I got it. You are a real trooper and an insipiration to all of us . Stay tuned in and do take care . P2putt aka Pete

Happy "un-birthday" (again), Pete. Sorry I missed your day! I prefer baseball to football, no favorite teams, but can name the ones I don't like.

Debe, my husband just had one of his kidney's removed due to kidney cancer. Luckily, all the cancer was in the tumor and had not spread, so taking the kidney made him cancer free. How are you feeling? I hope you are up and around and causing all sorts of trouble. :)

PA'er here too…Pittsburgh area. I have never heard of Trexlertown and that we have two members from there to boot is really amazing! Two of you from the Poconos area too. Wow! I feel lonely all the way down here in SW PA. :( I bet we discover more people from Pennsylvania on here. Nice to find you all.

Good morning S2,Judi and all on site.A local TV broadcaster,now deceased, would always close his show with the following,"It's a beautiful day in Pennsylvania". His name was Manny Gordon.Well it is going to be a beautiful day in PA today,no matter what the weather is.How are all of you doing? Good I hope. Well, today is my birthday . I previously began a Discussion titled Hello. I opened the topic my telling all it was not my birthday- it was a non- birthday day. So many joined the discussion and sent me NON -BIRTHDAY GREETINGS.It was really neat. I wonder what will happen today?Please share with us how you are doing and how's your day. Wish you all the best and remember "It's a beautiful day. PA Pete

Hey Pete,
Something else we have in common..Big time Yankees Fan here, and Love the Mets too. The Phillies are my Hubbys team.
What's your favorite Football team?? For my Hubby it's the Eagles..and for me it is the "Vikings"(only because I am a head over heels Bret Farve Fan,and have been since he started to play).So I was a Packers fan for O'so many years, then of course last year rooted for the Jets..and Sighhhh..this year the Vikings. The team I have been an un-dieing fan of since I was in my early 20's is the Pittsburg Steelers and always watch all their games..Love me some "Big Ben N the Boys". Ok, so I am just a huge Football fan..LOL

Hey DJ,how are you guys this morning? Good I hope. Happy to hear you are a Yankee fan also. Where football is concerned, I've been a Giant fan as long as I can remember but I must say I have a short memory.lol. My second team is the Eagles and that might change due to M, Vick.Please take care. Till next time," It's a beautiful day in Pennsylvania". PA,Pete

Hello.My name is Pete aka,P2putt. I've been a diabetic for 27 yrs.I have been in total or partial denial for most of those years.It was not until 4 yrs ago that I began to develop symptoms of retinapathy. This frightened me terribly.I began to take the desease we all share more seriously. I have improved my bs and a1C #'s. However, I still struggle with a number of obsticles. The main problem I have is I'm a carb freak. The second is eating after 8pm. When I eat after dinner,I eat carbs and it snowballs. Have hit and miss success.This has resulted in an increase in the retinapathy. I'm frightened but still eat those carbs. Please reduce the carbs. They are mine and your greatest enemy. Please make better choices than I did and alot sooner. Best to all of you,fellow PAers. Pete

I live in northwestern Pa.. small town called mount jewett.. lived here most my life except when i was in the service. divorced aprox 12 yrs ago. 1 son and grandkids planning on moving back here in area. 1 daughter just moved out going in here first yr of college. 1 daughter still at home here. Like this area.. other than the hard winters we get.. snow ain't too far away here on the hill in this town i feel. woke up to temps in the 30's early this morning. we get lots of snow here. lake effect bands from lake erie all the time.

DJ 2009-08-31 08:25:58 -0500 Report

Hi dj,
Oh yeah, the snows will be upon us much sooner then I care to think about…as I said I live on a mountain, and once it starts I pretty much stay put.It is beautiful to look at but a horror to drive in especially when you are trying to get down off this mountain and then back up again.My hubby does it almost every day..he is my Hero..especially on days when I won't even venture out the front door, he gets in his 4x4 and off he goes to work,and my heart doesn't beat right until he walks back through that door, but he usually makes it ok.

Thank you. We have spoken earlier.I believe we spoke about you driving my way,the Poconos,and stopping at a popular eatery(Binghams). They specialize in baked goods.Pies are to die for,especially if you're diabetic.
