Spinach Salad with, Ham, Avocado and Pasta; interesting times — 3 Comments

  1. Voting is compulsory in Australia and failure to do so can result in a fine or jail term….I have received fines and threats as i live out of the country despite the electoral office acknowleding they have my paperwork saying exactly this……bureaucracy at its worst !!

  2. Husband and I went to the doc’s last week and while there, had the compulsory blood work done. When the office called a few days later, both of us had elevated fasting sugars. They want to do an A1C soon for us both. After contemplating why we would both show high, I remembered that on Memorial Day (we went the day after) I had made a large raw beet salad with balsamic vinegar dressing. Well, duh! No wonder our sugar was elevated! It will be interesting to see what the A1C levels really are when we have it done.

  3. kate, I think it should be everywhere – but it shouldn’t have to be. When people have a voice they should use it.

    nightsmusic, A1C will likely be perfectly normal and that seems rather excessive – why not just do another regular test a week later? And when it’s both of you they should have been suspicious lol
