With less than 24 hours until the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes this year, I want to make one final fundraising push. We are amazingly close to our fundraising goal, with less than $500 to go:
If we can close the gap, I will take up the challenge issue by my friend Terry and I will do the Walk in my Vibram FiveFingers:
It’s a bit bizarre as they are not exactly Mall footwear, and not exactly January-in-Minnesota footwear. Yes, I will spend a lot of the time explaining them to people and putting up with odd looks, but that’s part of the fun.
So bug your friends and family, and support my Vibram challenge!

Our kids helped us put together a YouTube video about our life with diabetes, so please take 6 minutes from your day to watch.
If you want to support us, please check out our JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page.

Boo. Hiss. There is a lot of complaining about spammers, but now they have crossed the line.
Announced on the http://co.mments.com site this week:
co.mments will be shutting down Jan 11, 2009. It’s been a wonderful ride, unfortunately regular upkeep, and our friendly spammers, have turned it into a chore. I need the time and energy to focus on other things, so sadly, I’m going to shutdown the site by the end of this week. Thank you all for your support, Assaf
Cote clued me in to co.mments two years ago. In my book, this site was the hands-down sleeper hit of the Web 2.0 world. It provided a personalized and surgical way to slice through web conversations. My co.mments feed in Bloglines was the first feed I checked – every day, no exceptions.
What a drag – is there anything to replace this? I will seriously miss this service. Thanks for the ride, Assaf.

We are participating again in the Walk to Cure Diabetes coming up in a few weeks.
We are hoping to put together another special message to support our fundraising this year – stay tuned for that. But in the meantime, check out our slideshow from last year to help understand how we feel about diabetes. As our boys like to say “it sucks” – we need to get rid of it.
Please visit our fundraising page if you are interested in support us!
