  • Re: Next Meeting of 50-Year Medalists

    There has been very little use of "The Joslin Boards" by 50-Year medalists. This is the area that you get to by clicking an appropriate link on the Joslin web page www.joslin.org . On the other hand, the secret Facebook page "The Joslin Medalists" was started about three months ago, and been quite active. As a Facebook user, the

    Update on Richard Vaughn. Richard reported that he was sent home from the hospital, and is continuing to recover. He also reported that on the way home, he and Anita were in a taxi. The car ahead of the taxi struck a deer, and their taxi was able to avoid hitting the car ahead, but they did run over the deer. Close call!

    On Saturday Nov. 3, on Facebook, Richard Vaughn informed his friends that he was in the hospital with a brain hemorrhage which was a result of a fall a couple of weeks ago. A procedure was being performed to drain the excess blood. Today, Sunday, Richard has reported that the procedure was successful, and I have noted that he has been busy making friends

    I will make a commitment to sing The White Cliffs of Dover with Annette at the medalists meeting in May 2013. I'm not a very good singer, but I do know how to read music, and I can carry a tune. Of course, it would be better if we could form a chorus. Richard, would you like to volunteer? Anybody else? I have had to discontinue bike riding, at least
  • Publicity About The 50-Year Medal

    In recent months I have posted online in a couple of places that I have observed that when the medal office posts a picture of the 50-year medal, usually it shows just one of the two sides - the runner with the torch. I suspect this is because that's the more artistic of the two sides. The other side is all text. But to me, and I suspect to most

  • Re: Medicare and T1 care

    Hi Jan, I've been using a pump (4) for 17 years, and have been T1 for almost 70 years, so I have a 50-Year Medal, and I'm on Medicare. I think Medicare's problem with the OmniPod is that, to them, changing the pod every 3 days doesn't fit with their limitation of one new pump every 5 years. I've been using my current pump, Animas

    Complaint!! I've been trying to compose a reply to Richard's message of 8/16, and when I go to another screen to get information to put in my message, and then return to my partially composed message, it's gone. My email doesn't work that way. I had what I thought was useful info to pass along, but I'm not going to try and put it

    I had a very pleasant surprise this evening. I live in a large retirement community, in which dinner is served every evening in the community dining room. Every Wednesday we have a pianist who plays old tunes from the '30s through the '60s, all through the dinner. He just sits down at the upright piano and plays all the songs he recalls. No

    Annette - I like your idea, but I fear that many of the medalists are too young to remember those years. But for me, here in the U.S., before dx, that song represented the hope, not just for Dover but for all the Allies, for peace to return. And it did! So it's a good song for us. Tom

    Annette, Sorry if I implied I will be bringing my bike to Boston. I should have started a new paragraph before starting to talk about my bike. I will only be in Boston for 2.5 days, so there wouldn't be enough time anyhow. I will be having dinner on Wednesday with Dr. Stephan Kissler. He is a new addition to the Joslin research staff, and I understand
