One week ago, I wrote that my blood pressure was 163/91 with a resting heart rate of 88 BPM. As an experiment, I thought I’d commit to drinking at least an additional 48 ounces of water a day and track my results with no other modification to diet or exercise. I probably drink about 30 ounces of water a day, but wondered if adding 48 more ounces (coming close to a total of 80 ounces daily) would have any effect. Last night after putting the kids to bed, my blood pressure was 134/74 with a resting heart rate of 91 BPM. I think I’m gonna add water to my diet.
I’d like to figure out the percentage decrease, but not sure how. I don’t think you can treat those numbers like fractions.
In case you are wondering, I mostly drink a mixture of green and black tea throughout the day and maybe 8 ounces of either a Coke or a Sprite.
I don’t have a whole lot of Twitter followers, but I’m sure more than half of them are spam accounts.
You may know Eve Plumb best as Jan Brady, of ‘The Brady Bunch’. When she was eleven, and with the help of her parents, purchased a beachside house in Malibu for $55,300. She recently sold that house for $3.9 million.

A girls’ all-star softball team was raising money to attend a major competition by holding a raffle for an AR-15.
Not comfortable the gun was a prize to support children, he offered for the girls’ trip himself, but since the raffle already started that wasn’t an option, so he used $3,000 from the church’s discretionary fund and bought 150 of the 500 raffle tickets. – Donors replenished the $3,000 he’d used from the church coffers and then some.
“I’m not sure that’s exactly how God works, fixing raffles,” he said with a laugh. “I like to believe I took a faithful stance. But I think that God would have been on my side even if I didn’t win, because we helped send a girls softball team on their trip.”
As the owner of the gun, he wanted to publically destroy it as a symbolic gesture – melt it down, turn it into a piece of art, perhaps a garden tool.
It was suggested this was a violation of Oregon’s new gun law by failing to have a background check conducted on a parishioner.
The Oregon State Police, acting on a tip from a local gun club official, opened an investigation into the allegation that he’d violated the background check law. A spokesperson there said the case is under review. Such a misdemeanor is punishable by up to a year in jail and a fine that could reach more than $6,000.
Blogger Note: In retrospect, I should have made this a separate or individual post. Also, I’m sure that article raised the blood pressure of some of you out there.
The factor that’s missing in the comprehension of Probability of Precipitation (PoP)? Area. To quote the National Weather Service (NWS), what PoP is actually describing is the chance of rain at any point over an area.
1992 Olympic pop-culture flashback – Dan & Dave, a great marketing campaign which didn’t quite work out for the athletes. Dan didn’t qualify for the Olympics and Dave ended up with the bronze. But Dave did win the gold in 1996.
