Header will go here. This is just a test for Gene's review. If he doesn't like it, that's fine. However, I figured that it was time, after so many years, to look at this approach.
In practice, there would need to be a site map to provide for navigating to old posts.
I'd recommend that the contact email address be set up as a new Gmail alias. This would make it easier to filter out spam and other undesirable email.
The physical residence address should not, under any circumstances, be disclosed. A P.O. Box or similar box, however, would be fine. I can recommend a business for that if necessary.
July 08, 2019 Hydration
As discussed before, I just don't drink water. I have gotten past it making me feel a little disgusted, and now don't really mind - just don't think about it.
We need to think about it. I was beginning to run high blood pressure, with no particular reason I could think of.
I don't like taking meds unless they are really needed (I am trying to see if I should talk to my doctor about dropping one of the two meds I do take - both are very mild, but why take them if they aren't necessary?
So, I was a tiny bit woozy one morning, and I know from experience that is a sign of dehydration - that made me think, maybe the high blood pressure?
A couple of large glasses of water, and a few hours later - blood pressure was fine!
I decided to research it - sure enough, dehydration may lead to the "silent killer", high blood pressure!
Be warned! I can tell when my blood pressure is questionable by the ringing in my ears, so I always catch it - most people don't have that advantage, and it can sneak up on you - and from what I hear, strokes are not fun.
July 07, 2019 Plant
Supposedly the plant puts out 5-6 flowers a season, all at night. Last year, it had 30 flowers.
A gardener suggested it had "too much sun", so we moved it to a slightly more sheltered area. It seems to like that, already three flowers, one that lasted until almost 10AM.
Now, I counted 19 buds, and I suspect there are more - and the blooming season is just starting! If that is any indication, we may have 40-50 blooms this year, and hopefully more that last until the light is okay for photos.
And, the aroma is still really nice. I may move it indoors to perfume the house.
