Laissez Les Bon Temps Roulez!

...but not too hard! Happy Mardi Gras :)

My poor blog has been badly neglected--unfortunately the workplace surf Nazis are to blame. Nothing remarkable or unusual--or blog-worthy--has really happened, so you're not missing much. Just the usual ins and outs of the daily routine...the morning highs have evened out a bit. I'm due for another A1C on March 9th, which I hope will be at or below my last one in November (6.1). Keep your fingers crossed for me!

Oh, and this month marks my 26th year of living with type 1 diabetes. So far so good...

Hurry spring!

Please Help

As many of you know, parts of rural Australia were devastated by bush fires this past weekend. Besides the 200 people known to have died so far, countless thousands of wild animals have perished. The suffering is ongoing.

What's the connection to diabetes, you ask? Well, it turns out Australia has one of the highest rates of type 1 diabetes in the world. And one of our fellow OC'ers is from Brisbane. But this post is really just my simple, personal appeal for those who can afford to be a bit generous. Australia has a special place in my heart for so many reasons, and Oz is hurting right now. Please help.

The following reputable organizations are taking online donations via credit card (Visa or Mastercard). Don't forget--your U.S. dollar goes a bit farther Down Under right now. For example, a $50.00US donation nets an Australian charity $76.00AUS. Thanks in advance for your support.
