Often, someone with diabetes will choose to conceal the fact from friends and even some family members. There are reasons why people do that, but that’s not the subject here. My question is, rather,…Continue

Marshall was built in the 1920's as a jr-sr high school. It was on the edge of dinkytown, which borders the U of Minn campus. My class, the class of '68, was the smallest and last class. The school merged with University HS, a much smaller non-secular HS about 6 blocks away in an attempt to keep a viable school. That lasted 15 years, then it became an office building for about 20 years. Steam heat, huge windows, no ac, it must have taken a lot of remodeling to be used for business.

Lifelong bookworm. Avid student of history. Love to cook [and diabetic -- isn't that ironic? Like Beethoven going deaf]. Deeply involved in my community -- Rotary, Urban Renewal committee, Planning Commission, etc. We live in the midst of some of the richest farm land anywhere. An hour from the coast, an hour from the city, and smack in the middle of wine country. Superb quality food sources right on the doorstep.

A Non-PWD Who's Sick of Hearing About Someone Else's Diet

Yet Another Mainstream Media Polemic on the Diabetes Epidemic

Posted on May 5, 2014 at 11:44am 1 Comment

USA today ran a story today (Monday, May 5) concerning the diabetes epidemic among the young. It's the same old same old: the growth rates of both T1 and T2 are through the roof, and obesity causes T2.

Too bad it doesn't cause T1, also; how convenient that would be for all the soi-disant "experts".

See the USA Today story here.

This Is Getting Old!

Posted on February 4, 2014 at 9:29am 4 Comments

For the second time in less than a week, I must say goodbye to a friend.

Bob Dornhecker passed away suddenly Friday night. Bob was a husband, a parent, a respected member of the community, and a genuinely good man. And oh yes, one other thing: a Type 1 diabetic who lived a full, rich life and had a 75 year Joslin medal to prove it.

I met Bob through my wife, who volunteers several days a week at the local retirement village. (I wrote a blog about at the time. You can read it…
