From The News Wire: Vitamin D

Vitamin D is right up there with mice cures on my list of naughty not nice news stories about type 1. Lots of stuff written and lots of news leads and no real conclusive news.

Apparently vitamin d in milk either does or does not cause type 1 and you should feel guilty about giving or not giving it to your kids. Thanks that is helpful.

So it is with that background that I point out today's Vitamin D type 1 story: Three quarters of T1 kids have deficient levels of vitamin D according to researchers at Joslin.

Please Remain Seated,

We (an word that here means I everyone else's computer is just fine) have been experiencing some technical difficulties. Just a minor thing like, well, XP blew up. Somehow the registry file went to locations unknown. My kids, with the Macs, are trying not to be smug, poorly.

I have been rebuilding stuff and I think have rescued my iTunes and Audible libraries. Most of what would be blogging time has been spent rummaging around my hard drive saving stuff.

I also finally finished some home improvements and close out my building permit. It only took a little more than year and a half but we have a cool kitchen dinning room living room entry and laundry. Finished is an overstatement but our work passed inspection.

Anyway I haven't been blogging or posting at CWD much.

I can say that rebuilding the house and PC have their upsides. It is nice to have the laundry out of the basement and the renovated computer is a lot faster.

I may be coming up for air here sometime.
