I think I have it. I am not sure how long, because I’ve been blaming my pain on my arthritis. I didn’t realize it was muscle pain and not joint pain until I did yoga. I was doing great or... Continue reading

We were doing good coming home, until I finished at Petsmart. I needed a collar and leash that would fit him and had no idea what size he was. When I finished the transaction, I put him in my Sherba bag. Got to the car and reached in and pulled out a damp puppy with puppy poop on him. He cleaned up quicker that my shirt (it’s still in the laundry). And the bag. Popped him into a cage after he got home so I could do some work. Yep, wet cage. But finally, a few minutes ago he woke... Continue reading

I am picking up a new pup tomorrow (started this Friday) His name is Jamie, after my favorite show beagle "Ben" who happens to be in his pedigree several times. We lucked out because Jamie will be 6 months old the week before the National Specialty. Now I normally would not go for the National Speciality to show such a young dog but I am planning to be there any way. Takes all the pressure off! He is definitely a conformation dog first even though he has quite a bit of growing to do before we will know if he... Continue reading

Coming home from the cruise was awful. I made the mistake of not getting a wheelchair assist from the cruise terminal to transportation to the airport. There was a huge line and it was seriously messed up, I think we... Continue reading

Because my husband doesn't believe Dulce helps me and doesn't want to be seen in public with her, I leave her at home when I go with him. Today I had my first low in a long time and it... Continue reading

Didn’t get around to doing much blogging on the cruise. While the internet was great when it was up and I could login, it was down a lot. Mostly when we were in or close to port. Oddly enough it... Continue reading

I had NO idea how much Dulce helps. This is the last trip I take without her, and probably the last time I’m out without her. People ask about alerts, and she does alert, but she really doesn’t has to.... Continue reading

I haven’t had a need to treat blood sugar for a long time. Before Dulce was trained. And yeah, she isn’t with me. Yes I’ve had lows, but it meant move a meal closer because Dulce alerted early. I had... Continue reading

First, see http://blogs.kweaver.org/adventures_in_training_th/2016/05/macy-and-dulce-tried-to-kill-macy.html if you haven’t already. I research everything about TSA, and Love field is running normal the night before. We get to Love before 7:00 am and there is a HUGE line already. I ask the facilitator at... Continue reading

FYI: Most of this is in pieces on Facebook. So, I don’t know exactly how this happened, but I have a pretty good idea. I was getting ready for our Alaska cruise, and was switching purses. I know I had all the edible stuff higher than Macy can reach when I got distracted and ran a quick upstairs errand. I come downstairs and find Macy eating Orbit gum. As always when little beagle girls are naughty, I grab syringe and hydrogen peroxide. Dulce swallow hers and upchucks. Macy, drama queen, fits me tooth and nail. And then doesn’t upchuck. Well,...

So to be able to do IOS development with Visual Studio, my IDE of choice, I had to get my Surface to connect to the MacMini. Things I like about the Surface over the MacBook: OneNote – I log all... Continue reading

The killer was that One Note does not work well with the Mac. I do have a MacMini and I could do something really interesting -- Mac In the Cloud. So either should be available for finishing up a iPhone... Continue reading

But brought home a MacBook - this one is about the size of my Surface 3. Below are the specs. The MacBook Pro had an old style hard drive and was just too heavy for me to manage. This should... Continue reading

Haven't gotten far, but all three platforms have the same "stuff". Ways to draw the app on a computer and ways to write code to make stuff work. App Inventor, Visual Studio, and XCode, all have a graphical interface that... Continue reading

The tutorial I'm using: https://developer.apple.com/library/ios/referencelibrary/GettingStarted/DevelopiOSAppsSwift/index.html Is an Swift playground. Apparently playgrounds are interpreted and have their own mark down language. You can actually write code in Swift, and see it execute as you go. Not a bad idea. Apparently Apple... Continue reading

First, I've had this conversation with other programmers. The more programming languages you've worked in, the easier the next one is. Which is rather shocking to find out that a friend who followed me in computer science at Southern Mississippi... Continue reading

I've been installing the tools I teach with. Microsoft Office products, Scratch, setting up bookmarks etc. So far, the only thing I don't like is that everything is backwards. I'm also not sure I like the trackpad. Oh, and I... Continue reading

Which reminds me, I need to check on my MacMini memory. I've had a MacMini 2 for a while, however, I have decided that for development I need a portable device. So I went to the Apple site and the... Continue reading

I’ll start out that I only despise one health insurance company and their business practices more and that is Cigna – they sold my medical information to the Korean insulin pump company back in 2004, so thereabouts. I had UHC... Continue reading

On 04/30 I reached 81% sleep efficiency with my Microsoft Band. Check out my full session!
