    iPhone/iPad app - Word Lens

    I really want to share this with everyone, but have no idea where it is best posted so I'll try here.

    This is an amazing app, and for a limited time it's free. Not just the app, but also the languages that are in-app purchases. If you are somewhere where something is printed in either Spanish, German, French, Italian, Portuguese, or Russian you just hold up your iPhone and it automatically changes the image to appear in English. It's like magic! Truly impressive! I've used it, and it works as advertised. Also, it doesn't need a WiFi or cellular connection to work. Perfect for traveling.

    If this sounds interesting to you don't delay. This free offer is for a limited time.

    The funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realise it doesn't say anything it's too late to stop reading it.

    Uncle David, I love that app!

    I wore a band aid over my forehead treatment while I was out and about today. It looks like someone shot me in the head and I didn't want to alarm anyone.

    THANK YOU! This is very useful for me.
    I hope they eventually include Korean.

    Re: FORT Koffee Klatch

    I had a great day yesterday! I attended the TCOYD (Taking Control of Your Diabetes) conference here in Raleigh, NC. It used to be annual, now it's every other year. It's organizer is a renowned endocrinologist from CA, who is a long time Type I diabetic. The day is packed with classes on diabetes care, treatment, research, support, exhibits, luncheon, etc. It's such a shot in the arm for a diabetic. (Pardon the pun. lol)

    If any of you have diabetics in your family or friend circle, please recommend this one day event. They have them all over the country.

    Taking Control Of Your Diabetes - Home Page | Home | Site

    This year the best part was about the BIONIC PANCREAS. It's a new device that is still in the clinical trials right now, but things look promising! It's a device that contains insulin, sugar and a computer. It figures out how much insulin you need and dispenses it into your body, measures your blood sugar constantly and then when your blood sugar gets to low, it dispenses a little sugar to bring your levels up!!!!! It does this continually with the patient doing NOTHING. It's a real miracle and something we have waited for for years! It's not a cure, but it's a good treatment.

    Bill Woods, who actually wore one with great success was a guest speaker! He said it was amazing how he got to focus on life and people instead of his blood sugar all the time. It brought tears to my eyes.

    The trials are coming to my doctor's hospital (UNC) in Sept! I'm going to see if I qualify to get one. Only 15 are being selected. You only get to wear it for only a few weeks, but still. I'm going to check into it. It would be a nice vacation from the constant worrying and concentrating on blood sugar numbers, carbs, insulin amounts, etc. I can't explain how exciting this is.

    Fascinating! I am not diabetic, but it has always been interesting to me. What a wonderful idea! I don't have any current diabetics in my family, my great-grandmother being the last familial connection. I didn't know her very well, but heard distasteful anecdotes about her. I'm not even sure who this woman was related to.

    This bionic pancreas sounds like something that they would have built with that 3-D printer on Grey's.

    Good luck on getting into the study, Debb. If I were you, I'd be beating on their door to apply first thing in the morning. The sooner, the better. Keep us posted!

    Re: FORT Koffee Klatch

    I have considered trials before, but they are normally time consuming. You have to appear for office visits, have extensive blood work and medical exams and usually keep logs about your blood sugar, food, carbs, insulin, etc. It can be quite time consuming, though there are benefits, such as free supplies and insulin, plus you are helping with the advancement of medical technology. It's a little trip for me to Chapel Hill and the route is the road from from hell. (I-40 from Raleigh to Chapel Hills is a horror.) Still, I'm going to look into it. I would only get to wear this artificial pancreas for a few weeks, so I wouldn't get any long term benefits, but still, I'll look into it.
