Drink It or Drain It

A few comments on a blog post led to an idea that I want to put into action. I have decided to simplify my beer rating system to just two levels; Drink It or Drain It. If I liked the beer or finished the bottle, and could drink another, then the beer will get the Drink It rating. If I forced myself to drink the beer, if I literally poured it down the drain, if I just did not like it, the beer will get the “Drain It” rating.

The face of religious persecution is a minority of the Christian community in the United States (conservative evangelicals) claiming authority over our faith and wielding it like a weapon against their brothers and sisters (and cousins) in faith. A group so unwilling to love, so unwilling to practice the Great Commandment, that they get the state to let them get away with breaking it.Drew Downs

I think these are attempts to gut the First Amendment’s Establishment Clause.

Sometimes there are negative consequence to not changing my infusion set on schedule. Last night my wife were up until 1AM while I battled hyperglycemia. My wife thought it was the snack that I ate after dinner. I was trending near 70 about two hours before dinner but my BG rose rapidly just 15 minutes after eating. And it continued to rise. I tested my BG and took a insulin bolts hoping to bring my BG under control. It continued to rise so I tested and hour later and added another bolus. But my BG continued to rise. Than around 11PM I remembered that I forgotten to change my infusion site. I had put in a new infusion set on Sunday and I was now fours days on the same set. I’m supposed to change it out every three days. I prepared the site, inserted a new infusion set and adjusted my basal dose to 120%. By 12AM on the Dexcom receiver had turned from slightly up to sideways. An improvement. By 12:30 it had started pointing down. I waited until 1AM when my BG hit 150 before putting the basal back to normal and going to bed. Lesson learned.
