My Review:
Being recently diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes, I feel I need to learn everything I can about it, to further protect myself and take care of myself while I am young. When I had the opportunity to review this book, I jumped at it.
Being a book from the Canadian Diabetes Association, I knew the information would be accurate, insightful and valuable. I have learned a lot about my disease from doctors, specialists and family, but there were some tips and stats I learned from this book. I'm extremely grateful I got the chance to read this book and get that information.
This book will now be a reference guide to me. When I am unsure of something regarding my illness, I am sure to look to this book first.
I suggest if you have either type of Diabetes, or if you know someone who does, then get a copy. It could save your toes, or your life!
(5/5)

REVIEW: I loved the whole series, but especially loved this season as it wrapped it all up.  There were a couple of moments that were so incredibly tragic, but also a couple moments where the most tragic things couldn't have happened to better people. Take Sussy for example. God, how I hated that woman through the whole show and couldn't wait for her to get what was coming to her. Did she get it here? You have to watch and see! This is the season where you will sit on the edge of your seat, waiting to see who will win the kingdom. Does your favorite character prevail above the others? MIne d…

It was so much fun to do! It was super cool to watch the tinsel levitate too! Then we sat to watch the movie.
What a good movie for the whole family! It was filled with action and adventure. Plus the story line was what I appreciated most.
The hubby had lots to say about this one. He was happiest that the film focused on one of the original Spider-man nemesis', Mysterio. He is one of the best Ma…
