I wanted to mention that we finally caught the dLife show this past Sunday afternoon (usually a challenging time for us to get in front of the TV). It wasn't half bad! I was pretty down on the premiere, I admit, but this episode was more lively and interesting by far.

They talked openly about sex (which will liven up any show!), and emphasized the importance of partner communication when it comes to diabetic "issues" in the bedroom. We liked their approach. We had a good laugh, too, when Jim Turner said he can easily measure whether his BG is too high or too low by thinking about sex: if he's high, he can at least think about it; if he's low, it's NOTHING DOING.Baker2

They also featured a luscious-looking recipe for seared scallops with miso and edamame sauce. And my husband thought Nicole Johnson Baker was "hot." Hmmph... I guess there was something for everybody, after all!
