Anyway, a few specials of note:
* Gluten-free recipes for St. Paddy's Day. I'm intrigued by the "Frozen Green Girlscout Cocktail" (with Creme de Menthe). Or the Unusual Avacado Salad, which features walnuts and coriander seeds. Hmmm.
* St. Patrick's Day deals from Diabetesandtravel.com. Get your vibrating 12-alarm medication reminder for just $64.95! Or a Diabetic Insulin DI Case for vials and syringes -- looks like an eyeglass case! -- for just $19.95. You get the idea.
* Or some free diabetes eCards, including this one. The St. Paddy's day tie-in appears to be here.

And your blessings be more,
And nothing but happiness
Come thru your door.
