any diagnosis should have been based on a a starvation blood test and not after a full lunch not 45 mintes before!
The hba1c test that I have doesn't require fasting as it works by getting 'information' from blood cells rather than the glucose levels in my blood.

Your existing ADSL broadband should be giving you much better than 1.33 mbps download, I get more than that upload speed. I'd definitely query it with EE.

23 The Grill

Just been to the Burger Night at 23 The Grill, on Church Street. Excellent food, a nice bottle of wine and a great atmosphere and all at a reasonable price (less than £30 for the two of us), highly recommended.

My father got his class one HGV by 'grandad' rights. When I got mine it was called an LGV C+E, it doesn't show on my licence anymore and I'd have to have a medical to get it back not that I need it but it's useful to know it's there :-)

Straightened the aerial up the other day, fortunately its within easy access and didn't require scrambling about on the roof. A quick Auto Retune via the recorder and all stations present.
