    Sweetwater has never let me down...until today

    Being a Diabetic myself, I always appreciate the bag of sweets Sweetwater provides. They come in handy whenever I experience low blood sugar episodes which force me to lay on the couch and have some candy. I keep a stash of Smartees at home for these wretched episodes. My wife has a sweet tooth...

    Is this necessary?

    I make my own out of old 10 mil drumheads. Put double-back carpet tape on the head. Cut out squares or circles and you're good to go. I usually use 3 pieces as that helps to accent the attack.
