    I have been away for a couple of weeks, distracted by legal, work and health issues. It all came down at a time when I am trying to get some things done regarding the JW child abuse issues.

    Added to my heart disease is disbetes ... cool ... in addition to not having fats, cholestrol, caffiene, cigarettes and sodium ... now I have to cut out carbs, sugar, Coke, and take more medicine. My diet is reduced to a thin piece of clear fibre paper every other night, forty pills, and purified water. Yuck!!! I want pizza, bear, and a cigar!!!

    Anyway, I will shortly get to my request for former JW Elders ... and e-mail all who responded. Sorry again for the long delay. - Jim W.

    I'm glad you are back Amazing and glad you are here! Take good care of yourself (you are invaluable) and eat your fiber paper! Pizza is bad for you anyway!

    Be good!

    I don't know about the pizza and cigar, but here's some bear for you:

    Bear is actually low-carb, so you can have as much of it as you want.

    Sorry, but I couldn't resist. Seriously, I hope you can work through your health issues. My thoughts are with you.

    Amazing Jim:

    So sorry that your bod is doing this to you. Probably the ol'e genetic makeup finally showing its face. I have several friends who's husbands suffer with both the heart and the diabetes thing. No doubt, is a rough road.

    They say that getting the weight down is the first thing, so your new diet should take care of that. Best wishes in your endeavors!

    Take Care! And keep away from the and the.
