Hi Emily, I received a tweet from Manny today about the interview with the alert dog people, but it was held on May 2. Is that right? I have missed several interviews that I wanted to hear.

What is the correct procedure to find the youtube videos of these interviews?

I hope you are well in CA, I am doing very well in NY. I am anxious to go to the FFL meeting i July. It will be my first time. Have you ever been to an FFL meeting? Thousands of type 1 children and their families from all over the world. WOW! I am glad adult T1D's are invited too.

I really enjoyed watching it, loved all the Latin, but I really thought you stood apart in the waltz.

Hi Emily. About the April Poetry. I put a haiku on http://www.tudiabetes.org/profile/NoSugarAddedPoetry. As of right now, it's the only new poem, which leads me to wonder if I put it in the correct place? Thanks.

Hey, Emily!

Yep, the G4's working well. It's kinda strange how far it juts out, but I've gotten used to it. How's yours working?

I am really struggling with how to reply to members who submitted written questions for the interview on Friday. I read a question and click on reply but I can't figure out where I'm supposed to compose my reply, so I give up. I tried to find a HELP facility, but there doesn't seem to be any. There are some good questions that I wish I had had the opportunity to answer yesterday. Please help!! Tom

On 12/11 I tried to reply to rrrruf about stage 3 kidney problems, but was limited to 200 words because I wasn't a friend of hers. I gave up and tried again today, when she had accepted my friend request. It seems to me that the need to be friends interferes with useful communication when both are members.

Hey, Emily! You have a G4, right? I just got mine yesterday and I'm not sure I put mine in the whole way. I'm getting readings, but it just doesn't look right.

Emily....I still cannot see David (dsg1987 ) in the chat. If for some reason he was accidentally blocked....how could he get UNBLOCKED if I can't see him? I don't know if THAT is what happened....but I would never have intentionally blocked him....as I've even befriended him!!
It's very frustrating....as he's the only one I cannot see on the chat. I can see him just fine on HIS page or mine though.

Please share!

Get Your Test On! Where else can you make a donation without taking money out of your pocket?

The 2012 Big Blue Test has started! Between now and the end of the day on November 14th, do the Big Blue Test every day to help us reach our goal of 20,000 entries.

Let your TuD friends, and family/friends/co-workers know about the Big Blue Test. If they don't have diabetes, they can still take the Big Blue Test every day WITHOUT testing their BG.

Every time YOU do the Big Blue Test the program sponsor (Roche Diabetes Care, makers of ACCU-CHEK® diabetes products and services) donates $5 to support organizations that help people with diabetes in need.

If you've never taken the Big Blue Test before, it's really easy. All you have to do is:
Test your blood glucose.
Get active for 14-20 minutes (or whatever you can do).
Test again.
Share the results on BigBlueTest.org
Come back every day and tell others!
(If you don't have diabetes, you can still take the Big Blue Test every day. You just don't need to worry about testing your blood glucose.)

Share your results in our Big Blue Test discussionif you wish.

Thanks :)
