I think I went a bit overboard on the write-up of my trip to Chicago, but here it is: My Trip to Chicago. Careful, it’s quite long but I’m glad I have a record of what I did now.
I got a lot done on my day off. I bought a new shower head, got a screw I needed for my Maxima at the Nissan dealership, helped a friend move, went grocery shopping, did my laundry, bought a couch, paid some bills, scheduled a dentist appointment, fixed a magazine subscription address and sewed a button on one of my shirts. It was a much-needed time to get caught up.
At my doctor’s recommendation I took my blood pressure (because it was high when I had my physical). It was 128/82 with a pulse of 71 which is well within the normal range. I’ll still keep an eye on it, but I was very pleased that it was so low.
People turn to the web to help make big decisions – I would have to agree with this article. When I was told I had high blood pressure, I checked the web to see how I could lower it. When I received a suspicious-looking letter in the mail, I checked on the web to see if it was a scam (it was). When I wanted to find out how to prevent carpal tunnel syndrome, I checked on the web. It’s a great source of information about almost anything imaginable but it’s also important to realize that anyone can put up a web page so you need to take everything with a grain of salt. Verifying the data you find is a worthwhile task.
Google’s playground – They just don’t stop do they?
