The Udacity course had us take a regular web site and turn it into a mobile web site. Those are also called progressive web apps. The point is that the web site is available both on and off line, that... Continue reading

I do great organizing my pills and I finally figured out to keep track of my injections. I use a sharpie and put a date on each pen needle. I pull out the tab and put them in the an... Continue reading

Though I'm going to look into multi-focus next year. I love multi-focus contacts but haven't had any in a while. Vision is better. I am not sure that the upfront cost makes up for solutions, especially since I am still... Continue reading

I've always been too sensitive about what others think of me. That's one of the reasons I'm overweight, though that sounds odd. I've decided that the weight loss group I'm in is a negative influence not a positive. The leader... Continue reading

I tried SunBasket, and they just don't work for us. I liked the two weeks, BUT we don't eat dinner together on Wednesday. Their delivery arrived very late on Monday night, and so we ending up having the last meal... Continue reading

Had a good conversation with my diabetes doctor. She asked about the weight loss drug and I told her I'd had really bad side effects and she asked what we were trying next. Told her I had fired that doctor.... Continue reading

Haven't done that in years. It's a good thing and a bad thing. The good news is that I've got a breather from medical spending, and I spent less this year out of pocket than the last few. I've decided... Continue reading

Pain seems to be my biggest problem. It's hard. My right hand has been bothering me for a year, my knees have been bothering me for a decade and plantar facistis has been bothering me off and on. I know... Continue reading

Picked up my Dexcom G6 system. Love it. All the other Dexcom sensor needles got to me. I was just about to the point I couldn't use the G5 from the dread. No issues with the G6. No calibration. My... Continue reading

I'm not sure what it means but I got another -- we ordered something and its on backorder message this morning. Getting the Dexcom G6 so far has been interesting. The electronic medical record fouled things up. I know I... Continue reading

Saw something neat on facebook today and it was the path that someone took to be a success from KFC to RN. Well, I didn't save my name tags, but: first job was candy stripping Krystal's McDonald's -- got smart... Continue reading

I completely forgot I had a job interview -- phone -- this morning. Less stress EVER, as I didn't remember from the time I put it in my calendar until the phone ran this morning. Not a huge deal and... Continue reading

After several months of trying I had to give up Jenny Craig. I like Jenny Craig but you can only do their food for so long. Even their menu changes don't help. I'm in a weight loss class with Baylor... Continue reading

One of the things that has been giving the MWS track fits is creating responsive images. The course suggests setting up an automated build process using with ImageMagick or ImageOptim. I'm running a Mac, and I chose ImageMagick. First you... Continue reading

A lot of that is getting the topirimate out of my system. It was like having a gastrointestinal virus for 4 weeks. Though I am sure that one of the biggest side effects was being dehydrated and I'm not fully... Continue reading
