Routines help me with my diabetes.  As much as I like to think that by using an insulin pump I can just go with the flow, that’s not always the case.

A routine, by definition, is something that is done over and over again.  With diabetes, repetition gives us an opportunity to fine [...]

JDRF Type 1 Talk

On December 1, 2010 By

For the past two years I [...]

A “Ninja Point” List

On November 19, 2010 By

Sometimes I have a handful of random stuff I want to quickly talk about.  Seems like bullet point lists were invented for times just like this.  But the problem with bullet point lists is that the typical bullet points — the actual, literal, bullet points — are boring.  But I think I have a solution.  [...]

Fountain sodapop is one of my favorite things.  Lots of ice, unlimited refills, and I’m a happy guy.

Until recently I didn’t know how those machines worked behind the scenes.  I had visions of lots of tubes and hoses running for miles and miles behind the counter.  You know what — that’s not too far [...]
