NEW THINKING ON HOW TO PROTECT THE HEART


Good article concerning heart health. When one gets a little older, I have found that one reflects on topics like this a little more often. So, when I read this article this morning I was reminded to take my vitamins. Just for me; I take on a more or less regular basis the following:
OMEGA-3 FISH OIL, B-12, FOLIC ACID,VITAMIN D, and from time to time a multiple vitamin. I do seem to feel better and have more energy when I take these vitamins on a regular basis. I don't buy the most expensive nor the cheapest. I am a middle of the road kind of guy when buying otc drugs.. anyway, if you get a chance to read the article http://www.nytimes.com/2009/01/13/health/13brod.html?partner=permalink&exprod=permalink I think you will find it interesting...

I went and spent it already'Chuck said, 'Ok, then, just bring me the dead horse.'The farmer asked, 'What ya gonna do with him?Chuck said, 'I'm going to raffle him off.'The farmer said, 'You can't raffle off a dead horse!'Chuck said, 'Sure I can, Watch me.

I have been watching Citigroup for a couple weeks now and have a small position in this stock. My own personal opinion is that some of the financials are undervalued. Specifically Citigroup (C) (since the infusion of "bail out" money) , and Wells Fargo (WFC).I like the 3 day chart on Citigroup, (higher lows) and feel we are in a near term uptrend. I'm not trying to get rich here, just make some "golf money" so I sold the Feb $8.00 calls for .65 against the Citigroup stock. WILL TOMORROW BE REVERSAL WED. OR WILL THE UPTREND CONTINUE??????


I have been a nurse for 30 years and in that time have cared for many special patients. There was a time in the late 1980s when I had the privilege to care for Tabitha. I was working on the toddler unit of a major Children’s Hospital. My boss asked me one day when I came to work, if I would be the primary nurse for Tabitha. This baby had lived her entire life so far in this hospital. She started in the newborn ICU, then the infant unit, and now had graduated to the toddler unit.
Her main diagnosis was bronchopulmonary dysplasia or BPD. Since I loved respiratory patients, I said yes. Thus was to begin about one and a half years of caring for this little baby.
When I first met her she was on oxygen and had a femoral central line. She would never know a day without oxygen or a day at home. Tabitha’s home was the hospital. Her mother rarely visited and never called.
This was a time of primary care. Some other nurses were uncomfortable caring for Tabitha because she was so unstable. She was difficult to feed because she’d been tube fed for so long. I bathed her every day, fed her and put twill tape ribbons in her thin hair. Her smiles were rare, making me all the more determined to win them. Occasionally she would be doing well enough to go for a wagon ride. Just when it seemed she was doing better, she would have a setback. She was placed on a ventilator countless times. For someone who a good day was one not spent struggling for breath, she sure made me question my goals and objectives. What made me think I deserved so much when she received so little?
There finally came a time when they tracked down her mother to get permission to perform a tracheotomy. I hated that. Tabitha never outgrew her illness. She was in the ICU for the last time when she stopped breathing and passed away. It was 3:00 AM. Since they couldn’t reach her mother they called me. I went in to hold “my baby” for the last time. She had all her tubes removed and was a perfect baby in my arms. I only hope she didn’t have to wait too long before her mother finally came to say goodbye to the baby she never knew.
I know that Tabitha is an angel now and never has to struggle to breathe

One Extreme New Years Day
I know that I said that I would for my next entry I would write about the exciting weather that occurred during December, but the weather on New Year's day yesterday was so interesting here on the summit that I feel the need to write about that today instead.
The storm responsible for bringing that interesting weather yesterday was also responsible for dropping 6+ inches of snow in the Boston area on New Year's Eve. Unfortunately, most of the snow stayed off to our south with only 1.3 inches being measured that day up here on the summit. The real extreme weather came as the that storm departed off to the northeast of New England, strengthening as it did so. At the same time, high pressure was pushing into the region from the west. This set up the strong pressure gradient that produces windy days like we had yesterday.
Well, perhaps windy is an understatement. For 21 hours yesterday, a wind gust of at least 100 mph was recorded with the peak for the day being 132 mph. Perhaps even more impressive was the fact that for 9 hours, the average wind speed for those hours exceeded 100 mph with a peak hourly average wind speed for the day of 111 mph. Remember, that is not a wind gust, that is an average wind speed for an entire hour. The average wind speed for the entire day was 92.3 mph. That average would have probably been 100 mph if winds hadn't diminished to around 70 mph for the last 3 hours of the day. Also impressive was the overall gustiness of the wind, or the difference between peaks and lulls. For most of the day, winds would lull to around 40-60 mph and then gust over 120 mph in mere seconds.
It was also darn cold yesterday, although not record breaking. We reached a low for the day of 27 below zero sometime between 7 a.m. and 1 p.m. Temperatures for a good portion of the day remained near 20 below, making for wind chills of 60-80 below zero. Because of this, nobody from the staff went outside yesterday with any skin exposed. In those kind of wind chills, exposed skin will freeze and become frostbitten in a minute or two. We also did not venture very far from the building, even to do our hourly observations. Being fully exposed to winds that are that high and especially that gusty will very quickly take you off of your feet and slide you to the other side of the deck. Once that has happened, pretty much your only option is to crawl back to the door. Even though that sounds simple, in conditions like that it can take 5-10 minutes or even more. Additionally, all it takes is one small mishap, such as losing a glove or your goggles, and you're in big trouble.
Out of the 2 years of non-consecutive time I have spent working on this mountain, yesterday was quite possibly the overall most extreme day I have experienced. It was not quite the highest wind gust however. That was 137 mph back in February of 2006. I don't recall the winds with that storm being quite so gusty, however the temperatures were even colder.
Another big wind event is on the way for tomorrow night into Sunday. I don't think this event will be quite as intense, however we will see winds gusting well over 100 mph again. Check back on Sunday for updates on that storm. I am hoping tomorrow to write about the impressive weather that happened during the month of December. Categories: Recent Weather
