Silence is a Death Sentence

Posted on August 31, 2009 at 12:59pm 0 Comments

I hate to admit it but I have been a fan of Army Wives since my wife got me watching it early in the first season. Well, last week, my interest grew due to the fact that the writers of the show have introduced Diabetes into the storyline. One thing that I was very happy about was the accuracy of the information about Diabetes on the show compared to other shows that have tried to address this. I would have to say they were pretty spot on last week in their portrayal of Diabetes.

Diabetes Makes its mark again

Posted on August 24, 2009 at 6:54am 4 Comments

Sundays nights are usually the time for my wife and I to settle down get the kids situated for bed and then watch a few of the TV shows we like to watch. We proceeded to watch 2 of our favorites that air on HBO: True Blood & Hung. The last of the regular shows that we watch on Sunday nights is one that my wife actually got me into and now I am hooked: Army Wives. So the reason for me even mentioning this on this blog is, obviously because it is somehow related to Diabetes. Well, this past… Continue

Why NOT Me?

The other morning when I was headed to work, I was listening to The Johnny Dare Morning Show which is a really funny and edgy morning radio show in the Kansas City area. Johnny had a comedian by the name of Robert Schimmel on the program (this was actually pre-recorded but that is not important.) Robert Schimmel is considered by many who know and enjoy adult comedy as one of the funniest men in the world. Well, on the morning show, it was brought up how his act is largely based on his history… Continue

Does Accuracy Matter?

Posted on August 7, 2009 at 11:54am 0 Comments

Accuracy was something I knew that I wanted to touch on but there are so many different ways to approach it, this was the reason for my delay in posting (a busy life had a little to do with it as well.) Now after a week of dwelling on it, I figured I would just start writing and see what comes of it. So be prepared for some possible ramblings.

I Do This For Me ... Take 2

Posted on July 30, 2009 at 5:47pm 0 Comments

When I began writing my last post, I had every intentions to stay on target with my original topic: Why I blog. Unfortunately, my passion for Diabetes, my friends and the defense of my own self, took control and my post became of of a defense and rebuttal on some things that I took fairly personally about my passions. Yes, I did touch on the subject of the reasons why I blog, but I do not feel like it was a complete representation. So, I thought that I would recollect my thought and give it… Continue
