Nurse saying my type 2 diabetes level has returned and I have to watch my food and sugar levels and exercise. 6.4 should be around 6. I gave her a really hard time.

I am kind of angry about this. Once again they are telling me to exercise. EXERCISE!

And diet and watch what I eat. FFS! What do they want from me? What do you have for breakfast? Oats and raisins and a few walnuts with one spoon of brown sugar. Maybe don’t have the spoon of sugar! FFS! Have brown bread! AGH! FFS!

The symptoms of diabetes include feeling very thirsty, passing more urine than usual, and feeling tired all the time.

The symptoms occur because some or all of the glucose stays in your blood and isn’t used as fuel for energy. Your body tries to get rid of the excess glucose in your urine.

The main symptoms, which are common to both type 1 diabetesand type 2 diabetes, are:

urinating more often than usual, particularly at night
feeling very thirsty
feeling very tired
unexplained weight loss
cuts or wounds that heal slowly
blurred vision – caused by the lens of the eye becoming dry.

Marrakesh Express

Crosby, Stills & Nash

Looking at the world through the sunset in your eyes
Traveling the train through clear Moroccan skies
Ducks and pigs and chickens call
Animal carpet wall to wall
American ladies five-foot tall in blue

Sweeping cobwebs from the edges of my mind
Had to get away to see what we could find
Hope the days that lie ahead
Bring us back to where they’ve led
Listen not to what’s been said to you

Wouldn’t you know we’re riding on the Marrakesh Express
Wouldn’t you know we’re riding on the Marrakesh Express
They’re taking me to Marrakesh
All aboard the train, all aboard the train

I’ve been saving all my money just to take you there
I smell the garden in your hair

Take the train from Casablanca going south
Blowing smoke rings from the corners of my mouth
Colored cottons hang in the air
Charming cobras in the square
Striped djellebas we can wear at home Well, let me hear you now

Wouldn’t you know we’re riding on the Marrakesh Express
Wouldn’t you know we’re riding on the Marrakesh Express
They’re taking me to Marrakesh

Wouldn’t you know we’re riding on the Marrakesh Express
Wouldn’t you know we’re riding on the Marrakesh Express
They’re taking me to Marrakesh
All on board the train, all on board the train
All on board

Bournemouth 1 Spurs 4

The team produced a tremendous response to the early setbacks of conceding to Junior Stanislas and losing Harry Kane to injury to blow away Bournemouth on the south coast.

Questions were asked of us when, coming off of a midweek defeat to Juventus in the Champions League, we were floored by Bournemouth’s whirlwind start which saw Stanislas hit the bar before giving his side the lead inside seven minutes.

And there was more consternation when top scorer Harry Kane limped off with an ankle injury on the half-hour mark – exactly a year ago to the weekend since he suffered a similar problem against Millwall in the FA Cup.

But the character shown by the team soon allayed any fears. With Christian Eriksen magnificent in the middle of the park, Dele Alli swept home the equaliser 10 minutes prior to half-time, before turning provider for Heung-Min Son to volley into the ground and past goalkeeper Asmir Begovic for 2-1 shortly beyond the hour mark.

It was one-way traffic in the second period as we dominated the game, with Son bagging a deserved second when Eriksen won the ball and played him clean through on goal from inside our own half, before Serge Aurier headed home in stoppage time to complete a 4-1 victory.

Sunday afternoon’s result at the Vitality Stadium sees us move up into third place in the Premier League table ahead of next Saturday’s FA Cup quarter-final at Swansea City.

How Ya Gonna Keep ’em Down On the Farm?

Walter Donaldso, Joe Young, Sam M. Lewis

“Reuben, Reuben, I’ve been thinking,
Said his wifey dear,
Now that all is peaceful and calm,
Soon our boys will be back on the farm.
Mister Reuben started winking,
And slowly rubbed his chin,
He pulled his chair up close to Mother,
Asked her with a grin
How ya gonna keep ’em down, oh no?
How ya gonna keep ’em down, oh no, oh no
How ya gonna keep ’em away from Broadway?
Jazzin’ around,
And painting the town?
How ya gonna keep ’em
Away from harm?
That’s the mystery,
They’ll never want to see a rake or a plow,
And who the deuce can parley-vous a cow?
And how ya gonna keep ’em down on the farm
After they’ve seen Paris?
Reuben, Reuben, you’re mistaken,
Said his wifey dear,
Once a farmer, always a jay, and
Farmers always stick to the hay.
Mother Reuben, I’m not fakin’,
Though you may think it strange.
But wine and women play the mischief,
With a boy who’s loose with change!
Oh, how ya gonna keep ’em down,
Oh no, oh no
Oh, how ya gonna keep ’em down?
How ya gonna keep ’em away from Broadway?
Jazzin’ around,
And painting the town?
How ya gonna keep ’em away from harm?
That’s the mystery
Imagine Reuben when he meets his pa,
He’ll pinch his cheek and holler “Ooh la la!”
How you gonna keep ’em down on the farm
After they’ve seen Paris, Paris?

Spurs 1 Juventus 2

Our UEFA Champions League campaign ended in heartbreak at Wembley Stadium on Wednesday evening as Juventus scored two second-half goals to cancel out Heung-Min Son’s opener and progress to the quarter-finals with a 4-3 aggregate win.

It was a valiant performance from the team, who took the game to a side which had reached two of the last three Champions League finals and dominated the game for long periods, only to be ultimately undone by two goals in a three-minute spell from Gonzalo Higuain and Paulo Dybala.

With just a quarter of an hour on the clock, Harry Kane rounded Gianluigi Buffon just as he did in the 2-2 draw in the first leg, but this time couldn’t convert from a tight angle while Son should have opened the scoring on 38 minutes but fired wide when through on Buffon’s goal. A minute later, though, he did find the back of the net, scuffing Kieran Trippier’s cross past Buffon to send Wembley wild and we held a crucial lead at the interval.

The game turned mid-way through the second half. Son and Dybala had both fired wide at either end before Juventus levelled on the night on 64 minutes when substitute Stephan Lichtsteiner’s cross was flicked on by Sami Khedira and Higuain pounced to poke home from close range. And the momentum of the tie completely swung their way moments later after Higuain set Dybala free through the middle and he advanced on goal before beating Hugo Lloris.

We threw everything at Juventus in the closing stages in search of an equalising goal of our own to send the match to extra time, Christian Eriksen and Son going close, while the visitors produced some heroic defending to keep out our best efforts.

We so nearly found the goal in the 90th minute, though, when Kane climbed highest to meet Ben Davies’ cross, the ball beating Buffon, hitting the post and bouncing along the goal-line before being cleared… and with it went our Champions League hopes for another season.
