Dear Sun Spots: My husband has recently been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. I know that the local hospitals offer diabetes education courses but I’m wondering if there are any support groups around town? Thanks. – Katrina Johndro, Danville.

Answer: Sun Spots has not located any, but perhaps there are readers out there who know of some and would be willing to share those resources with you.

Dear Sun Spots: This is for the person who wrote in about a yellow porcelain table top with an ink stain.

If it’s truly a porcelain and not just a painted surface, I would try Soft Scrub or some similar product. Use gently and follow it by a Clorox solution of 1 teaspoon Clorox to a cup of water. Repeat if needed.

I truly enjoy Sun Spots and have gleaned a lot of information from it over the years. – Mary Morin, No Town.
