I have finally written an iPhone app. It's a fairly useless app, and based on one of the first Windows Phone Apps I wrote and actually published. I learned how to write mobile apps by going to several workshops put... Continue reading

I’ve been going to the local dental school for dental care for the last 2 plus years. We did the first set of x-rays in two years, and they found what might mean a crown in one tooth. I wanted... Continue reading

After my complaint about the customer service call, CVS Pharmacy reached out. As I told them, the good news, is that 4 calls were great – but those were the ones I initiated. Good/bad news. I’ve met my deductible. So... Continue reading

One of the reasons I was able to Summer, is that she didn't want to show. She particularly didn't like getting ready to show. She really frustrated her owner at the time. Surprisingly enough, a lot of people spend a lot of energy grooming beagles for the show ring. I haven't ever gone as far as some, but. have shaved her chest, blended that into her coat, and shaped her tail. I do like the way she looks blow dried and have done that too. She has a massive cow lick on the back of her shoulders that needs to... Continue reading

No matter the breed, dogs that are capable of getting a championship are rare. Breeders are not going to sell their best dogs to an unknown person. They want their best dogs in their gene pool and want to show themselves. However, if you become known to the breeder, you will get some consideration. In my case, I have competed in agility with two of the breeder's pets, and have even competed in conformation with them. I have been active working with rescue and have helped her place pets and retired dogs. Many breeders will co-own with a junior so... Continue reading

I don't know why I haven't been blogging about this experience. It has been coolest thing that has happened to me in a really long time. It started at Purina Farms a couple of years ago. Dulce got her one and only AKC agility title so far at the nationals and she was fascinated by the puppies. She was 6 at the time a good spacing between dogs for me. My breeder promised me a show puppy! I had redesigned her website so she could update it, she had done it in Front Page, and she wanted to go to... Continue reading

I'm on my 4th pen. Blood sugar is stable -- we eliminated the meal time insulin since that isn't approved on the package and caused problems, and reduce the basal to half. I've been upping the basal by .25 units... Continue reading

Which means I have a lot of extra insulin and infusion sets. It also means I will be paying Victoza next year instead of insulin, reservoirs, infusion sets and sensors. And it means that my low blood sugar awareness is... Continue reading

Pros and Cons It's expensive. Without insurance, $900 a month. That means I'll meet my deductible in two and half months if nothing else goes on, and then I'll be paying $180 out of pocket. That also means I'll probably... Continue reading
