Hope you all treat your dads well today! A shout out to my dad, he died in 95 but he taught me alot and was a great provider. I miss him tons. Being a dad myself, there is no greater reward than watching my son grow up. I’m proud of him no matter what he does.

Rip anthony Bourdain.

I was listening to soundgarden and mourning the loss of chris cornell today. This song, “fell on black days” came out in 94. You could tell by his music he was a tortured soul. Take a look at the lyrics in this beautiful song. I bet tony could relate.

Whatsoever I've feared has come to life

Architecturally it is the best city in america i think @felicity.  I like mexico city too, but chicago skyline is nuts.
dansiego3:
Of course it was cold, wet, and then it snowed on me in april.  Late winter!

I went to chicago for a bit, and my wife and son took these photos of titi. The happiest i’ve seen her in years, it was a doxy wiener fest where she got to meet other dogs. Awesome shots!

Oh, I love the pics!!

Mireya sent these to me @felicity and i freaked out.  Who is this happy dog? I thought.  I haven’t seen her like that in years!

I was driving this am, listening to radio, and a song came on. Blues travelers hook. Immediately tears welled up in my eyes, and i’m flooded with emotion, flashing back to winter of 1994-1995 so i thought i’d share the story behind it.

In nov 1994, i was in grad school living with my girlfriend of five years. My mom was diagnosed with...

is my friend, people are different from each other, life is very complicated even, we will never be prepared for the disasters... experience a sad drama in real life. Thanks for venting with us. I hope this is no longer a sad thing in your heart, because you have a wonderful family and the past that serves as a lesson to be better in the future. I love you my friend!
dansiego3:
You know it @thaecos, love you too sweety.  No regrets at all.  Except maybe letting this woman cheat on my 2x and not once.  That was really uncalled for and did more damage to me than anything else.  Somehow i still trust easily and forgive just as easily.  But i do not regret for a second that this did not happen.  I’m glad it ended before she accepted the ring at least...my wife wears this ring today!

I have been trying to get my type 1 diabetes on track again. After 38 years of injecting insulin? It surprises me that i still need help with this. I’ve been lucky. Using what i would call loose control, i’ve managed to avoid complications so far. But for the last two months, i’ve been trying to get aligned with a new diabetes...

I’m trying hard i really am.  But i’m a phd scientist.  And basically we are looking at the same data with a critical eye.  And they don’t agree with my recomendations after i’ve carefully observed how i respond to carbs and insulin over the past 10 days.  Now?  Following their recommendations?  My blood sugar all of a sudden is sky high.  And using their dosing?  I’m not able to bring it down.  I don’t like this lack of control, it is dangerous for my health.  I love experimenting on myself.  But i do not like being experimented on by someone who is not paying as much attention as i am.
dansiego3:
Ironically i am doing great on their recommendations.  The first night was tough.  But the next day pretty damn good.  They were off on one of the calculations, but every test is a learning experience.  It is quite fun to watch the biology.  Experiment with doses.  I am just a control freak i guess, and i realized recently that every time i look at one of my blood sugar tests?  I judge myself.  The only way out is to separate emotion from the anticipation of the test result.  Detach.  Imagine it is someone else’s reading.  And respond appropriately as objectively as you can.

For @felicity, the dogs are doing fine! Expert nappers!

How beautiful they are. 😍💙
dansiego3:
Thank you @thaecos.  They are not as cute as they used to be, these dogs are getting grey when they used to be red.  But they are still beautiful to me of course!  Titi needs to be with me all the time now.  I keep her near me, and she suffers when i am gone. It was love at first site 14 years ago now when we adopted her.

Check this out. He got a perfect score in statewide standards test.

So proud!

dansiego3:
I don’t know why this is a surprise to me.  We spend plenty of time trying to help him not be a perfectionist.  Then he does something like this.  Didn’t even try on the test he says.  He’s shocked himself.  But on paper, that officially puts him on top of state performance standings.  We don’t know how many are up there, but it’s pretty cool...

Blimey!
