I just got my Dexcom G5 yesterday evening. It operates fantastic. The only problem I noticed within this 12 hour period is that on my trend graph I already have a gap. I hope this doesn't continue to happen.

I have yet to purchase a insulin pump, but as I spoke about the gap of the G5 earlier and not reading my sugars, it happened again today. I spoke to one of the CSR's for Dexcom, who recommended me to talk with tech support about this issue. The G5 gives you the mobile functionality. So instead of always having my receiver by my sensor, I just need my cell phone.

I'm surprised the G5 has yet to be in Canada. Last I heard, the CEO for Dexcom was looking to make devices less expensive to help all diabetics to be able to afford a Dexcom. They are trying to work with Google on this.

Happy Back to the Future day G+. It's a celebration that I have been enjoying. I started the day dressing the part and now I'm ending it by watching all the movies of Back to the Future.

I'm on part III as we speak.

Roads? Where we're going we don't need roads.

John Boehner to resign as House Speaker:

House Speaker John Boehner will resign from Congress at the end of October, ending a tumultuous five-year tenure at the helm of the House and a 25-year career in Congress.

Boehner made the surprise announcement to stunned GOP colleagues at a closed-door meeting Friday morning less than 24 hours after he reveled in the first-ever papal speech to a joint session of Congress, something he has dreamed of for 20 years, and as the government is on the verge of another shutdown if Boehners fractious caucus in the House cant reach agreement with the Senate to fund the government beyond Sept. 30.

Minutes after news broke of Boehners plans, Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, a GOP presidential candidate, announced Boehners resignation to the conservative Values Voter Summit in Washington.

Madison Project political action committee called Boehners departure a huge win for the conservative movement and said it was critical that conservatives hold strong and not let Boehner push through his establishment agenda in his remaining time in office.

Rep. Lynn Westmoreland, R-Ga, called Boehners decision the most selfless act Ive ever seen in politics and one that spared the GOP conference a tough vote on his speakership. GOP presidential candidate Jeb Bush was among those praising Boehner, saying he dedicated his life to public service.

Confirmation of the encounter's success came just before 9 p.m. EDT today (July 14, 0100 GTM July 15), when the probe "phoned home" to the New Horizons mission control center at the Applied Physics Laboratory in Laurel, Maryland. All systems reported nominal status. And, um, Woo Hoo!!!

I took a trip to New York to witness the ball drop in Times Square live. It was unbelievable! I was blown away by the people who traveled from different countries to say "goodbye" to 2014 and "hello" to 2015 all in the big apple. So much see and so much to do. It was all worth it.

Being a diabetic for 23 years now has been challenging, and with different ideas to help us diabetics to control our sugars has just become easier.

I've heard from others (young and old), who have a Dexcom to get one. I've been doing my research and I like what the new innovation of the Dexcom G5 can do. The more I learn about it, the more I want one.

The morning walk with my sweetheart for kids with Down syndrome was exciting. We've been wanting to participate in one all year and we finally did. However, as you can tell it was to early for her lol. It's never seeing anyone go through that. I can just imagine how difficult it can be, but for the love of your child you would do anything. I know I would.

Out at the Cliff Dwellings in New Mexico. After driving on the highway, we had finally reached our destination, and we're we ready for the adventure. The weather was great, and the people were helpful. The hike was well worth it.

It is a small hike, but to learn about the area was interesting. Before our way to the Dwellings, we stopped at the City of Rocks State Park.

Took a mini road trip with my sweetheart to Gila Cliff Dwellings, NM and stopped in the City of Rocks State. It was a beautiful visit as we hiked around and snapped pictures. It was worth the stop.

I must fall forward to succeed. I must believe in myself. There's only one possible way, and that's my way.

If you're already familiar with G+ and all the guides that have been shared, you may find Sections 6, 7, and 8 to be most helpful.

SECTION 1: GETTING STARTED (http://goo.gl/syrqi)

"Quick Start" is composed of 1-2 page high-yield infographics containing the minimal technical information useful for the simplest of G+ experiences. This is for individuals who like the least amount of introduction and who like to learn as they go.

"Overview" contains G+ tips, personal recommendations, user experiences, and describes the overall G+ environment in a way that is more elaborate than “Quick Start” but less comprehensive than the full "Guides" section.

SECTION 2: GUIDES (http://goo.gl/GgidI)

"Beginner Guides" have step-by-step walkthroughs, descriptions, and advice for the most important basic features of G+ to maximize your experience quickly without getting too involved or potentially overwhelmed. This is a well-rounded introduction to G+.

"Comprehensive Guides" contain an enormous amount of dense information, some of it repeated within other detailed guides. If you are looking to learn the in's and out's of G+, read through these to pick up on everything from basic to advanced tips and tricks.

SECTION 3: CIRCLES (http://goo.gl/WGvnh)

Delves into circle management and maintenance. It is important to stay organized with circles because they determine how your information is presented in the Stream and how privacy (“who sees what”) is controlled.

SECTION 4: PHOTOS (http://goo.gl/sy2sS)

Items on uploading, sharing, organizing, and customizing pics.

SECTION 5: HANGOUTS (http://goo.gl/btUyc)

Many examples of creative uses of Hangouts and Hangout resources.

SECTION 6: FINDING PEOPLE (http://goo.gl/o1HA9)

Provides a list of sites for where and how to search for G+ users based on a variety of criteria and interests. Some of these sites are also useful for maintaining and sharing public circle lists and for viewing user statistics. "List Names" section is composed of aggregated lists of people found in particular G+ niches and communities.

SECTION 7: BLOGS & NEWS (http://goo.gl/0jQzW)

Provides general and comprehensive information focused on what's happening in Google+.

SECTION 8: EXTENSIONS, TOOLS, & APPS (http://goo.gl/1FyBK)

These tools are meant to enhance or modify the G+ user experience. Some browser extensions may stop working properly when Google makes updates and changes to G+. Please note: use of these extensions and services are "as is" and at your own discretion. Several extensions may ask for permission to access your browser activity and G+ profile.

SECTION 9: PRIVACY (http://goo.gl/NSPGY)

Provides resources to maintain privacy and security on G+.
