Courtesy of the “Wayback Machine“, I bring you the very first entry I made in my online diabetes journal.  This was back on February 28, 2000.  Far before Blogger made things easy, and I had to write the entries in HTML.  The journal is no longer available, but thanks to the wonderful tools available [...]

This week I had to come back to work after two weeks of wonderful vacation around the holidays.

We got the kids a couple nice things for Christmas without going into debt, which is awesome, but left us very broke for the remainder of our time off.  We couldn’t afford to travel, or even do [...]

I Love Meetups

On January 3, 2009 By

I was scanning through blog posts on Tuesday night, and saw that Lili was in town for a day or two!  I quickly commented to her blog post and asked if she wanted to get together.

As soon as the e-mail arrived I started to grin.  An image was attached.

I don’t know about the rest of you, but my day would be one smile less if Bernard was not around to amuse me.

Bernard – you rock man!  Does anyone NOT know who that is [...]

I’m sleeping GREAT!!

On December 2, 2008 By

A while back I posted about going in for a sleep study.  I recently went in for my follow up visit to get the results.

I was floored to hear that I was waking myself up almost 47 times per hour (46.9 to be exact), and would stop breathing altogether for up to [...]
