The Roller Coaster Ride of Diabetes! Whoo! Whoo!

I am a Type 1 diabetic diagnosed back in the early 60's as a child.  I am living in Montreal, Canada and enjoy scribbling about diabetes from time to time. I’ve had my ups / downs just like any person would experience with going through life - diabetic or not.  My motto in life?  Diabetes does not control me – I control it!! 

You can find more posts/discussions at my Facebook page called "The Roller Coaster Ride of Diabetes" and also on Twitter under the name of FatCatAnna.  Feel free to follow me at both places or send me a private message!

    Diabetes1.org is one of the sponsers of Desert Dingo.  Hot off the press (okay Twitter) are some pics of 1107 with a few scrunches in the metal (some of this can be buffed out they say - but I'm not quite sure - since I have some  sheet metal experience from working on aircraft).

    Currently 1107 - the 41 year old Volks bug is in Prairie City, which is just outside Sacramento for the season opener weekend.  Sunday they'll be heading out, along with rebuilt engine (thanks Bob and the team) so things are looking good!

    Luckily, no one was injured, not even the Diabetes1.org logo (see second picture).

    A bit of buffing to be done here

    Sheel metal experts at work to yank out the left hand side of the car.

    To check out the latest and greatest with the Desert Dingo team go to their blog .  Also, at the blog site, read up about Emily Miller and Wendy Fisher (in 109) who are representing the U.S. at the Rally Eaicha des Gazelles (”Gazelles” for short) in Morocco.  This race has been going on for the past 20 years with only women drivers! Oh, to be part of the team would be a dream come true!
