My Story:
I am 64 years old and live in Kansas. I have been a Type II diabetic since June of 2005. Fortunately, I have been able to manage my diabetes very well.

As of October 12, 2011, my A1C is 4.9% and my average fasting glucose is approximately 85. I currently use no meds for diabetes.


My two favorite hobbies are amateur radio (callsign KBØISS) and smoking meats. I have worked nearly 300 countries around the planet.

Here are a couple of pictures. One is of my amateur radio station and the other is some of my BBQ handiwork.
