Earlier this year I reviewed the Hamilton Beach Breakfast Sandwich Maker. The machine is easy to use, and that is half the battle. You just plug it in, let it heat, layer the ingredients in a fool-proof manner and wait for the sandwich to be done.

This week I'm finishing my series of columns focusing on blood glucose monitoring. The topic will likely come up again.

As mentioned at the end of my last column, I'm writing more about blood glucose meters this week, and will finish up in my next column. There is so much information that I can't get it into just two columns.

Before a trip to Andres Coffee Shop, I went online to see its menu. The “About us” section says that Andres is owned and operated by Edgar Gonzales and his family who live in the Little Rock area. The shop was created as a way to celebrate the life of Edgar’s grandfather, Andres, who grew up in Honduras and was a coffee farmer, and that sparked Andres’ love for the beverage.

I firmly believe that one of the main things that makes people with diabetes give up the struggle toward better health is having to monitor blood glucose regularly. It often feels like a thankless task, one of those chores everybody always tries to get out of.

In late 2012 I wrote about problems I was having with my right foot, which turned out to be a broken fifth metatarsal. In February 2013 I had surgery, but after three months of waiting, the bone had not healed properly.

Those of us who struggle with an illness, condition or disease usually have a lot on our plates. Along with the medications and doctor visits, the symptoms, dietary issues and the daily grind come worry and stress.

In my last column I mentioned a woman with diabetes complications that led to the amputation of her arms and legs. It's a frightening turn of events that could happen to any of us with diabetes.

Where have these first 4 1/2 months gone? I feel a day late and a dollar short sometimes, and I'm still struggling with getting that "act" I've written about together.

Verizon Arena in North Little Rock was abuzz and aflutter Wednesday night as a gaggle of little gals in princess costumes turned out for the opening-night performance of Disney on Ice Rockin' Ever After. Of course along with them came a herd of moms, dads and grandparents, most of whom seemed to enjoy the show as much as the kids.

My family has been familiar with Cancun Mexican Restaurant for years. The Jacksonville establishment has managed to stay in business through two moves, and in spite of our less-than-perfect economy.

After the Boston Marathon bombing, the words used to describe the recovery of the city were “Boston strong.” After the devastating tornado that ripped through parts of this state April 27, I’m thinking many of us are embracing the concept of “Arkansas strong.” It’s been so heartening to see the outpouring of money and physical help for people who were left with nothing but a few photos and scraps from their lives.

I experienced a bit of sadness late last year when I found out that Just Like Mom’s, a Sherwood home-cooking restaurant, had closed. But it was made a little less poignant by the opening of Two Sisters Catering in a lovely free-standing building on Kiehl Avenue.
