Last weeks Speaker 
Assoc Professor Dr Ben Wheeler, an endocrinologist, spoke on his research work with young type 1 Diabetes sufferers. Type 1 patients, normally young people do not generate insulin which is needed to control blood sugar levels.  Insulin  needs to be injected and then the blood sugar levels need to be monitored to ensure that patients do not have either high or low sugar levels, both of which cause problems. In the past it might require figure pricking to assess the blood sugar levels up to 6-8 times a day. Young people have difficulty with this strict regime. 
Ben has been working with automatic insulin delivery with insulin pumps attached to the body with monitoring provided with smart watch technology. Generally this works but does create some issues for the patient. It is not cheap.

What's Up 
John Block with regards to Meals on Wheels mentioned that coming statutory holidays would not require deliveries.  When delivering to 75 Albert Street just knock and leave the meal on the doorstep. 
Personally he said his golf is getting worse and is musing about paying $1,000 for a Ping driver. Wife Eileen is coming up for a hip replacement. A sister in South Africa is enjoying living in a retirement village set up by Rotary He met up with past member, Lindsay Hall who passes on his regards.  
Son George is a crime journalist with Stuff and he was down in Wellington for the Occupation. The journalists, some police and some protesters all shared the same hotel.  Four days before the the evacuation everyone was aware there would be some action shortly as police preparations became obvious. On the day the police left the hotel at 3am the journalists at 4am and the protesters at 5am!
 
Thoughts of the Week from David Goodchild ( not delivered, until now)
"The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings. The inherent vice of socialism is the equal sharing of miseries " Churchill
"Bankruptcy is scary the first time you do it.  But once you have done it 5 or 6 times its the easiest most beautiful thing in the world " Trump
