Four Things.

No Diabetes By February 28, 2015 7 Comments

I stole a meme from Stephen, who stole it from Jeff, who stole it from Scully.  (This is an exercise in content theft.)  I haven’t done a meme in ages and am drinking half-caffeinated coffee this morning in an effort to cut back on the amount of caffeine I take on, so I’m meme’ing in hopes of waking up my…

But there are things I truly wish I knew…
