a place for people who are into history. I guess we can be into anything. Diabetics tend to be thinkers

who i am outside of diabetes

it is important to understand how to make all of this work... but my approach has always been to allow life to happen and adjust to that, rather then the method that i have seen so often... make all of life adjust to my condition.
so anyway, i am a father of 4 and love my children to no end. they are 18, 15, 12 and 8 years old. i am an traditional irish music freak, and have been involved in hosting/organizing a few festivals. i have spent quite a bit of my life working in and running restaurants and cafes, though i have also taught american history, and i have even written a home schooling curriculum for history. i am currently setting up my stained glass shop here in plymouth. i have not done much glass work in the last year, but i enjoy it immensely, i have been doing it for about 20 years now... still trying to grow up, unsuccessfully.

Hey Lev, do you know where Post and RAil ave is in Plymouth? That is where I grew up....have always loved it and am hoping to move back soon, my wife needs to find a teaching job (she is a college professor) up there first.....I hope we can meet in person (maybe at a local restaurant I used to work at ...."Quintal's" in Buzzards BAy, whenever it actually happens! Pls visit my site at http://www.supportersofsurvivors.com and take a look, as I think we share some similar life philosophies! thx, Steve D.

Good luck with the school project. I don't think I could go back to school and discipline myself to study and do homework! Let me know when we can celebrate graduation!

Bue fof now.

I'm doing OK, Lev. Had a setback in the middle of May when I ended up in the horsepital (LOL) with acute renal failure and cellulitis. (Personally I don't think it was cute, but rather ugly!!) It did set me back weeks due to the inactivity and infection. I can't use my prosthesis for a while because my incision was weeping. Siiiiigggggghhhhhh!

Good luck in school. What are you studying and/or going for?

Love from your TuD fellow member.


P.S. Hey, old friend ... how the heck are you?

Hey I saw your comment re db books about Barbara and June - they were absolutely the best, and the original carb counters. For a couple of years I had sort of a penpal relationship with them and we'd write back and forth. I had always hoped that we'd meet, but never came to be. One time on Amazon I saw their most recent book was The Stroke Book, so I guess one of them had a stroke, but that was a few years ago. I have googled them and essentially came up with nothing except book references.
I remember when June became a "Regular Girl" and started taking MDI's - it was such a foreign notion that I thought she was nuts!

So, have you permanently moved, or what?

Oh Leo Kottke - I hadn't thought of him in years. He used to play the Twin Cities quite often and I think I saw him in concert twice. Loved the clip.

I live just a couple of blocks from where Blood on the Tracks was recorded - oh to have been a mouse in the corner.......

Hi Lev - how goes it in Ol' 'New England?
Cold and blustery here in Mn and I'm trying to resign myself to another winter ahead. Bah humbug!
This is one of my favorite video clips or all time. It won't embed. It had been removed from YouTube for many months but I was delighted to see it back up.
Hope you and your framily are well.

Oh yeah, they played just like that, and also some traditional US folk music, like The Crawdad Song. (Sometimes, if it went late into the evening, there would be a few raucous verses added.)
Now you have put me in a chatterbox mood. Several years ago, in northen Mn, a Norweigan farmer came across a carved stonewhile plowing that said the Vikings had traveled inland way before Columbus, blah blah blah. There has been controversy ever since, especially when a neighbor found a bunch of stone carving tools in a shed and then it was revealed that the farmer had extensive knowledge of the runic alphabet. So perhaps he made it up to glorify his heritage? Anyway, he Runestone has its own little museum and I've visited it several times. Too much fun.

Oh oh, did I stumble onto a private conversation with my fellow classic rock friend Craig? Now I'm curious and will have to go check it out.

Anyway, loved the concertina lady - doesn't she make it look effortless. My paternal grandparents were first gneration immigrants from Norway and they had 4 sons who all played a number of instruments by ear (later found out that yes, they could all read music bud didn't want to admit it). Anyway, my one uncle traded a shotgun for a concertina and since he was already proficient on accordian, picked it up in no time. But I recall his being a bit larger.
Family gatherings involved lots of cars pulling up with instruments hanging out the windows and even a couple of beat up old amps, all to be set up in the garage. I could have listened to them play all day long. What lovely memories you have summoned up.........

Psst, I also know that the admin here continually makes statements about the "value of diversity"....ahem.....
