Oh, No. Not Again!

Well, we had an interesting night last night.  We were still celebrating how well our feature story was received, when, about 10:00, we heard tires squeal and a crash.  I looked out the window to see a car speeding away after it hit Lisa's new Nissan Cube.  She just bought that car a few months ago and now it gets hit by a hit and run driver.  We ran outside but the car was already out of sight.  We called the police and then another car pulls up with two ladies in it.  They said they saw the whole thing and waited around to tell the police what they saw.  The officer didn't seem very confident that they would find the person, but we got a call from them at 1:00 this morning saying they found the car but not the driver.  The car is registered to someone in a neighboring city, so they are getting an arrest warrant today.  I haven't heard from them yet.  I called the insurance company this morning and my body shop.  My friend, Mark, who owns the body shop came and towed the car to his place so he could give us a true estimate.  Now, we're just waiting to hear from him and the police.
As if that wasn't enough, the same thing happened to my truck about 6 months ago.  They found the guy, drunk, driving on a suspended license, with no insurance.  That was a mess to finally get resolved.
And, after all the excitement last night, I had to go in for a root canal at 11:30 this morning.  It went well, but I have to go back a couple of more times to finish everything up.
So, with all that said, we are still excited about the overwhelming response we have had about our story in the paper.  Visits to the site went through the roof and we are getting several e-mails from folks interested in adopting the low carb lifestyle.  I really love helping others get healthy.  My experience has been so positive.  I'm off all diabetic related meds, lost 65 pounds and all my blood work is ideal.  If I can do it, so can you.
I had low carb, flax seed peanut butter on low carb whole wheat toast this morning for breakfast, but after the root canal, I don't know what I'll feel like eating the rest of the day.  I'm still a little numb and it feels like I'm continuously drooling but Greg tells me I'm not.
Speaking of Greg, he's at the house right now.  He'll be blogging in a minute so be sure to read his ramblings. 
That's all I have for now.  Hope you all have a great day.  See ya.

  1. Once knew a elderly gentleman, back in the sixties who managed his diabetes with proper diet. He lived in Evansville, and always grew a fantastic peanut crop in his backyard garden. He claimed that peanuts help cure the diabetes,
    he never used insulin, and was very healthy. He road his bike everywhere. Thanks for the web page.
