My old Endo always wanted me on a strict regiment of 4 basal rates.12AM-6AM6AM-12PM12PM-6PM6PM - 12AMSince having left her care I added in an additional basal rate from 3AM to 6AM. That gives me a…Continue

Cannulas and scar tissue

Im a tad worried about pumping the rest of my life. I like the convenience of square bolusing and a basal rate that I dont think about much. Plus the fact that I can adjust that basal at a moments…Continue

"I figure if it's post-meal BG running up, I need more insulin in my carb-insulin ratio (or less carbs). If fasting runs up, then I blame the basal. This works the other way too, if it's too low, I back off on the pump a bit. This is…"

Cauliflower Wurstchen Goulash

Posted on December 29, 2010 at 3:56pm 9 Comments

I did a toss together meal last night. Some family friends came in from out of town, so we visited till 9pm or so, then they left for another destination. My wife then went to put the little one to bed and I jumped in the kitchen to try out the new immersion blender I received for Christmas. I have  a cauliflower bisque base that I got from Gerri and make weekly to bi-weekly as its too easy and yummy. Its also super simple and easy to build on. I'm a real toss things together type of cook so…

Hope all's well!

Our Annual Campaign is coming!

Would you consider helping by writing a short comment/testimonial about your
experiences at TuD? The main message for the campaign this year is that no
one with diabetes should ever feel alone. Messages from our community give
people a real-life, personal sense of how valuable TuDiabetes is to each of
us, how it's changed our lives, etc.

If you can, please include a photo of you doing something diabetic (if that
makes sense LOL). Please post to this group
(, or message to me from my page.

Thanks my friends!

My D seems to be doing fine. I am holding steady at an A1c of 5.5%, hypos almost nonexistant. I still struggle with my mornings, but sadly that is the bane of existance for most of us. My real health bother this last year has been my fatigue, messed up metabolism and low body temperature. It is always something. But I will get through this.

Glad you like my real face. Hope you are doing well. Don't be a stranger, we miss you.

They thought the music thing was about operating in this little self contained world with it's own proprietary rules, like a programing language I guess. I'd say security is something with a fair amount of job security, probably a good career move.

I got into IT in the late 90's when it was really easy to talk your way into a job. I had a little web page business going when web pages were an exotic skill. I read an article, then, about a University looking into what other professions would have the type of people who would be good programers. The best place's too look were musicians and contractors. I remember thinking how odd that was, but the skill a contractor has is being able to build something in their head and to think ahead about how everything fits together. This is very useful in programming because you're building everything in your head in programing.

Since I'm a musician with modest talents I guess that makes me a programmer with modest talents:)

Sounds like you're more of a network guy, got any musical or contracting skills?

The worst part of the 18 recordset code is maintaining it. It usually takes a half an hour just to remember how it works so I can change/fix it. Cutover is a clearcut. If you've ever been to the South you may have noticed lots of pine trees in rows, that's what we do. I started out in '79 as a planter then worked my way up to foreman. Used to take my wife and young daughter along, we camped out on the sites in a travel trailer. When my daughter started school I started doing carpenter/cabinetmaker work at home. My wife died, I needed a better way to pay for my daughters schooling and besides I was getting too old to be climbing around on roofs, so I talked my way back into the company I used to work for and started learning on the job. No one understands what I do but me, so I have a certain amount of job security. I live in a very rural area so people with my skill set are scarce, as opposed to carpenters which are a dime a dozen.

I'm 62 so am just hoping my job will last another 4 years. If I was a little younger I would get better with SQL Server, learn and maybe a scripting language like Python or PHP. Skills in Access are not terribly in demand.
