Over the last few days I have not been able to avoid this Jardiance ad — and it INFURIATES I.

Why?

Isn’t it obvious?

This ad is bloody criminal.

This FAT guy, ‘Dimitri’, needs to LOSE weight — not take a drug.

Plain & simple as that.

If he lost 80 pounds he wouldn’t need Jardiance.

No mention at all that he needs to stop pigging out, exercise more & lose 80 pounds.

Annoys me intensely. It is criminal.

We should NOT be encouraging bad behavior & saying it is OK to be obese … we have a magic, EXPENSIVE pill for YOU.


Yes, there was a Trulicity commercial too — and I objected.

Diabetes is something I live with every day. The reason I exercise and watch my diet (though not that successfully of late) is for my diabetes.

Then I see these bloody ads.

Every SINGLE man shown is very overweight if not obese. Of course they are going to be diabetic. Obeseness is a leading cause for diabetes.

Lose 80 pounds. It can be done.

I have seen a few of these Trulicity commercials on TV of late and they have made me see red.

Diabetes is something I live with every day. The reason I exercise and watch my diet (though not that successfully of late) is for my diabetes.

Then I see these bloody ads.

Every SINGLE man shown is very overweight if not obese. Of course they are going to be diabetic. Obeseness is a leading cause for diabetes.

Lose 40 pounds before you even think of Trulicity.

Lilly should be ashamed.

35-years ago Eli Lilly (in the UK) was one of my networking customers. They were a great company that I enjoyed dealing with. This is BELOW the Eli Lilly that I knew and respected.

Lose the weight.

Is The Chinese Lucky Bamboo A Plant?

I have to confess to being taken aback by that an US adult, in 2017, would be UNFAMILIAR with the near ubiquitous Chinese Lucky Bamboo EVEN IF they are from New Hampshire.

So, this adds to my collection of classic questions asked by Americans, my all time favorite two being:

  1. “So Anu, tell me, how do they celebrate the 4th of July in England?” [From a neighbor in Maryland on the 4th in 1985.]
    ….
  2. “This U.K. ‘pound’, is that some kind of currency like the ‘dollar’?” [From a TWA airport counter clerk in Phoenix, Arizona, in 1981.]
    ….

WOW. I see them in gas stations and in many a New Hampshire Chinese restaurant.

Yes, we probably have at least 6 plants in our house — but we are strange.

One thing I did NOT know. It is not a BAMBOO! Neither was it NATIVE to China.

I am very familiar with bamboo which grows wild in Ceylon/Sri Lanka. Lucky bamboo does look like green, immature bamboo. It is a LILY PLANT from Africa. Fancy that.
