My banner was broken, so I changed my template and things were looking a little boring around here at Orsa Aetas. I fixed that by adding a new banner. Get your own and spread the word about World Diabetes Day!

Mel,

Thanks again. And in case you are curious, here is a little update about what is going on with WDD.

*A Monumental Challenge* – Global monuments to light up in blue
-----------------------------------
This year we are asking every city, town and village to acknowledge World diabetes Day and recognize diabetes as “a chronic, debilitating and costly disease associated with severe complications, which poses severe risks for families.”

We need monuments of local and national importance – from the village hall to the tallest tower – to light up in the color blue of the UN flag (Pantone 279 or as near as possible).

Among the monuments involved, we can count the Empire State Building in New York, the Citadel and Library in Alexandria, the Blue Mosque in Turkey and the London Eye. An up-to-date list of the buildings that have thus far agreed or declined to join the celebrations can be found on the World Diabetes Day website.

We need your help in adding monuments to the list. Let us know the monuments you are pursuing and those that have declined.

Tremendous thanks,

I work at dLife and I was wondering if you would like to be added to our diabetes blogger email list? Every week we send a fun video clip about diabetes. If you are interested, please contact me at urbahn at dlife dot com. Thanks!

I hope all is good with you.

Any chance you'd join a group of us on Saturday, November 10th for a World Diabetes Day lunch? We'll be meeting in Woburn MA after the pumpers group meeting that goes from 9:30 to noon. It'd be great to see you there, and the pumpers meetings are always interesting and fun.

Do let me know. And I hope you had a good (candy-free) Halloween!
