Yahoo's instant messenger used to be a fairly nice app, but then they
started to change it, and it went down from there. I quit  it sometime
ago.

Had a great physical exam last year, then my doctor retired. This year, a new doctor and concerns over elevated blood pressure. Only a few days after Easter feasting and a few from the next furcon. So either I gotta watch what I eat (less sodium) or go on meds.  So I'm looking at my routine diet, and I'm under the daily 2000mg anyway. My usual breakfast is about 5% Daily Value, lunch is about 25%, dinner maybe 50% If I'm lucky. Chocolate is very low sodium btw.

It seems levels like blood pressure and other body chemicals need to be held to a
closer tolerance than in the past. I heard the other day they feel that blood pressure
should be lower than they had previously thought. Like 120 /70 instead of a high
thats closer to 140/90.



Of course one should cut back on salt,sugar, and caffeine. All of which
in excess are bad for anyone.

Call from doctor's office with blood work results. Somewhat elevated levels or some such. They want me to see a urologist. Have to change primary care doctor before they can set up an appointment. Fasted almost nine hours before giving blood too. Maybe I should get a second opinion.

When you scrape off your windshield only to have it immediately frost up again on the outside while driving (before the engine is warm, of course).

People who drive through my lawn in a rain storm and grind grooves out, which the landlord expects me to fix!  This has happened 4 times in the last 5 years. Makes me a little more than mad when some one invades my territory with so much disrespect.

Someone offers to remove the remains of a fallen tree from your property on a set day for a fee, then fails to show up.
