The Friday Six: Snowed In Edition.

The Friday Six March 10, 2017 No Comments

Haven’t done one of these in a while.  But the snow is falling fast outside and school was cancelled before even a snowflake had touched the ground, making a link-love post the only option … as children circle me like cute sharks. Borrowed from the Glu Facebook page:  “Glu and T1D Exchange are fighting to protect affordable health care for…

 I’ve taken a few days off and have enjoyed every moment with my family.  But there have been some links that I’ve saved because I wanted to share.  So I’m SHARING.  As a blogger, sharing is my jam. Here’s some jam: And now here are some links: Martin posted this.  I love this. There’s a really amazing opportunity to support…

Hi!  I still write here.  I write a blog about things here.  This is my things blog, with diabetes stuff and other times not so much diabetes stuff.  Welcome to it.  (My brain is not entirely tuned in this morning.  Working on it.)  Coffee is helping, but it may take a few days to kick in. Yesterday was a long…


The Friday Six: A Ton of Many Things.

“What do you want to do today, Mom?” Birdy asked. “I don’t know.  What do you want to do?” Long pause. “Mom, I want to do a ton of many things!” A ton of many things.  That makes more sense to me than I’d care to admit.  That’s what’s going on in my head – a ton of so many…

A Friday Six on a Wednesday!  Because why the hell not. The FitBit obsession. Renza talks about the messaging of diabetes, and what we can do to get it right. Here is some damn sneaky research. Seb is still running. And I’m still supporting the hell out of him, because he’s incredibly dedicated. You can still support him, too. I…

SUM stuff from around the Internet: “The latest in this trend is the meme showing a fat little girl titled ‘Lil Diabeetus snacks’ as a take-off to Little Debbie Snacks.  It’s being bandied about on FaceBook as ‘cute’ and ‘funny’; an appropriate name change.  Is it funny?  I don’t think so.”  Kate weighs in on the Facebook meme. Tuesday’s #dblogcheck…

There used to be only six links, but I’ve made a mockery of that and now it’s a pig-pile of resources.  All clickable and informative, though, so dive right in!  –> Jim Turner has always been on my list of “awwww, isn’t he charming?” and the fact that he has type 1 diabetes didn’t hurt that sentiment.  This week, Christopher…

I love Diabetes Blog Week.  It’s inspiring and encouraging, and reignites the blogging ecosystem for readers and writers alike.  Are you participating?  Head over to Karen’s blog for details. “This head-to-head-to-head comparative effectiveness study reveals the G4 Platinum as the most accurate and precise of the current generation of CGMs, followed closely by the Navigator, with both devices markedly more…
