I've just signed up for the #100HappyDays challenge beginning 6/1/2014. Can you be happy for 100 days in a row too? http://www.100happydays.com

I hate having diabetes. And now it looks like managing my diabetes is going to get harder, not easier. #reformhealthcarereformNOW
Everywhere we turn these days, we're seeing restricted access to the vital diabetes medications and supplies we depend on to keep us healthy.

Mar Vista Lanes has been a second home for me and my hubby for the last 14 years. Now a planned remodel is putting bowling pro Phil Yoakum out of business after 40 years and threatening the closure of our favorite bowling alley diner Pepy's Galley. That is so not OK!

OMG! I got a nationally known publication to write #savepetsociety! OMG! Way to go @2SavePetSociety on Twitter!
