Light

The sun seems to be shining again, Mi, albeit weakly. This morning I got the computer fixed. I didn’t worry about data. I figured we’d have or retrieve what we needed.

No free lunches

Did I tell you I took the RISC test when I was at the writers convention last week? This is a complex yet non-invasive test that comprehensively investigates 30 vital cardio-metabolic health indicators. It helps determine if a patient is at risk of developing diabetes and if a patient is diabetic, it helps measure the risk a patient may have for the complications...
