Diabetes Advocacy, The Friday Six By January 4, 2019 Tags: , , , , , , , , 1 Comment

It’s been a while since I did a Friday Six.  Which means I should do one.  Riiiiiiight … now. New content up at T1Everyday Magic – Sweet, Little Lies. This one is about the Blue Bin Incident, which is a story I often tell during presentations because it involves a slide with a big chocolate cupcake on it, and that’s…

The Friday Six: Snowed In Edition.

The Friday Six By 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…

The Friday Six: Last Weekend of Summer Edition.

 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…

The Friday Six: Catching Up.

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: Sea Serpent of Doom.

I’m not going to complain about the weather.  Nope.  Not even a little bit, because eventually it will be so balls hot that the sidewalks melt and crumble into an oatmealish texture, so I am going to be quiet about the fact that we STILL HAVE THE HEAT ON and it’s mid-April. It’s time for some link-sharing, because there’s lots…

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…

Friday Six: But Not On Friday.

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…

Friday Six: Masterlab, TypeOneNation, and Jim Turner!

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…

Friday Six: Twitter Chats, Museum Meters, and the Good Thing We Had.

The Friday Six By May 2, 2014 Tags: , 3 Comments

I used this meter.  And now it’s in a museum because it’s that effing old. This is the scariest claim made by children’s bedding that I’ve ever seen. This post from HelloMegAnne cracked my brain open. On Thursday, May 8, from 1 to 2 p.m. ET, the American Diabetes Association will hold a special Twitter chat on travel rights and…

A guest post from Hope Warshaw about asking Congress to Access to Quality Diabetes Education on the Strip Safely website. Grocery store lows are the worst. These stick…

The Friday Six: FDA, Competitive Bidding, and Double-Dutch.

Diabetes Advocacy, Diabetes Community, Diabetes Online Community, The Friday Six By March 28, 2014 5 Comments

The weekend is SO CLOSE.  I’m wearing a path through this busy Friday with a Friday Six: The FDA is listening, and if you want them to hear from you, you can join the discussion on Monday.  “Whether you want to just listen to the interview to get informed, ask relevant questions to better understand the medical device regulatory process…

Last night, my computer started to twitch because there were so many people sharing the link about Google developing a contact lens that monitors blood sugar levels through tears. Yep. “We’re now testing a smart contact lens that’s built to measure glucose levels in tears using a tiny wireless chip and miniaturized glucose sensor that are embedded between two layers…

I can’t figure out why it’s spelled T-O-R-O-N-T-O but I pronounce it as “Toronno.”  I do not have a lazy mouth.  I speak reasonably clearly.  Why is my tongue tangled on this word?
