Jerry, my friend--I know Jason and Virgil will be there. Do get in touch with them. I had to leave for Minnesota suddenly to care for my mother and I'll be in MN for a couple of months. I'm so sorry to miss meeting you again. But let us persevere! When I get back we can plan a meet-up around your schedule specifically so we won't miss again!!!.....I look forward to reading your notes about the Expo!......Be well.....Judith
I also got a card from the American Diabetes Association. It is at The Oregon Convention Center not the Expo center, different places. Saturday Feb 20, 2010 9:00am to 4:00pm. The link is www.diabetes.org/oregonexpo. I'm trying to find out what vendors will be there..
Anita, my friend: could you give us some pointers as to how to find each other at such events? I'm our ambassador and I want to explore every avenue of us connecting---even if it is 2 or 3 at a time! I've never been to one. Are there areas where we might set a time and find each other if we had an informal sign, for instance? We can't afford a booth yet, but last summer, for instance, Andreina did up a beautiful design that I printed out to poster size and placed at our picnic site for all to see easily. I'm quite willing to wear such a thing around my neck if that helps us find each other!!!. I'm stuck out of town this year, but next year I will be there, come hell or high water, as they say!
Let me know what you think. Connections are important for us all!!!.....Judith
I'm going to try to see if I can get some one to go with me. I'd sincerely love to meet just for coffee or tea with any Northwest list members. I have a very nice community area that is private that I can use where I live in downtown Portland (The Pearl District). So if anyone would like to have a meet up please I'd love to host. I feel so lonely at times. I'm especially feeling it now because I'm in a battle with Care Oregon over Byetta for me. They keep denying it even though the doctor says I need it. You can e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like to get together.
Love the Pearl District, Ricky Joe. Lots of great spots for coffee or lunch. Will look forward to that when I get home.....Saw your other note---check with any of the Administration folks. Manny has been having problems with Ning. There's a discussion somewhere about current Tech Issues.....Be well!
329,040 minutes, 329,040 moments so dear. 329,040 minutes — How do you measure, measure volunteers? In smileys, in tears shed, in counsel, in cups of coffee. In units, in carb counts, in laughter, in strife. In 329,040 minutes – how … Continue Reading
