That's right, a whole month dedicated to Diabetes Awareness. Did you know that by the end of today, 4,300 people in the United States will be diagnosed with diabetes? As I wrote about last week, the USA Today reported on 10/22/10 that the number of diabetes cases in the US will double, and perhaps triple by 2050. As many as one in three will have the disease!On Friday, I picked up a great book...

I hope you had the chance to follow some of the rescue efforts at San Jose Mine in Copiano, Chile that are taking place today. After 69 days underground, miner after miner was hoisted up nearly 2,000 feet of rock and into the sunlight, fresh air, and the waiting arms of loved ones and rescue workers.These thirty-three men are being rescued from the longest underground entrapment in history. It...

Thanks for everyone who was praying for our Faith Fights Diabetes meeting this morning. To say that it was a success would be an understatement. I don't know how many people will ultimately sign up to help with this initiative, but there is no question in my mind that our message resonated with the nearly sixty people who came.The statistics are simply too hard to ignore. I talked about some...

I was really busy all day yesterday, and didn't have the chance to check my blog until I got home around 10:30 pm. Sometime during the day, making all things new had its 100,000th hit. Now, in the grand scheme of things, my little blog is a blip on the screen. But to me, this is an amazing fact, given that I really don't know what I'm doing, and I've only been at it since mid March :)Yesterday,...

The other day, someone sent me an email asking how I get so much accomplished. If they could only see my office :)Well, that question got me thinking. Now that summer is over, my busy time is set to begin. And this year, in addition to my usual responsibilities, I've added a bunch more, including this blog.I had no idea there would be as many people as there are reading my postings each day....

Top Chef. Sorry if I scared you :)I first started watching when I found out one of our local chefs was competing. As it turned out, he lost, but the whole concept of a bunch of chefs showing their culinary mastery week after week was fascinating to me, and I kept coming back for more.This past spring, I had the chance to visit Volt, the restaurant owned by chef Bryan Voltaggio. He was the...

I wish I could do some traveling right about now. No luck this year. I'm taking this week off, but I'm staying around the house. I have a lot of catch-up work to do, and I've got a sick dog. Oh well.More than anything else, I just need some down time. Like just about everyone I know, it seems like we continue to jump from thing to thing, taking each day as it comes. It's hard to see the...
