I have come across a website that is helping young individuals with Type 1 Diabetes. They are promoting awareness with silicone wristbands. Many Type 1 Diabetics die every year not just in the United States, but across the world. I like what the website is doing, and I thought I let you all know. Maybe you know someone who would benefit from one of the wristbands. Not just that, but the membership sign up may be the way to go with what they offer.



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.

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.

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.

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.

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!!!

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.
