- This week's Humorous Tidbit is:
Massachusetts is going to be selling a JDRF License plate, thanks to the Massachusetts Rotary Club. The club came up with the idea after hearing my daughter Lauren speak. They told me recently, since Lauren was their inspiration, I could choose the first number plate. They fully expected me to say "1." But, being the parent of a child with diabetes, I chose the number we all yearn for: 104. I figure every parent of a child with diabetes will laugh when they see my plate!
