Leap Day Leap Year....and the Check Up List...

The once every four years, Leap Day of February 29th roared into Western Ohio overnight, as thunderstorms, carried by strong winds hit the area...no damage was noted, but we did get a good soaking before the storms moved east.  With the rain all but out of the area, this Leap Year, Leap Day, will go out like a lamb, with near record highs in the mid to upper 60s in the forecast.

It appears that the near future forecast will have temperatures bouncing up and down, before the weekend sees colder weather:

The Weather Channel, the "Global Warming is Really Real, honest" arm of the corrupted NBC Network, is saying 5 states were hit by Tornadoes last night....you can read that story in the page link marked so.

A Couple of Days of Medical Appointments_____

We will see if the "White Coat Syndrome" rears it's ugly head today as I head to rural New Breman for the first of two days of tests on the old ticker.  Both are out-patient procedures...

Today at the doctor's office I am scheduled to have a echo cardiogram or "echo" of the heart, an ultrasound of sorts which checks Heart functions....

Tomorrow at the bright and early hour of 7am I will be at the out-patient portion of Joint Township Hospital in St. Marys, where more tests, this one called a US Carotid test...another Ultrasound procedure, which I believe involves the arteries that run up and down the neck.  To be honest, the worst part of any of this is the waiting at the office for the doctor and tests to begin, which in many people, me included, leads to the "White Coat Syndrome" in which your Blood Pressure rises for no other reason than your at the doc's office....then they end up trying to stick more medication at higher doses into you.

At least with these two tests there is no fasting or special prepping involved...frankly I am not concerned at all about my health, nearing 63 in two weeks, and running up and down the area basketball courts for the past 4 months, I feel pretty damn good....but will see what the tests say.

Tonight, as baseball season nears, our Van Wert association meets at Frickers in Van Wert, to hold our meeting/banquet....won't be any drinking tonight, just some chicken wings and leaving early because I am going to have to get up about 5:30 in the am for tomorrow round of testing.....

back later>>>>

Photos-Night Lightning was the theme last night, but sunny and warming up at this hour...and today it is the echo cardiogram, while tomorrow the scheduled procedure is Carotid Doppler/Ultrasound

Obama is just a puppet as to what the illuminati are doing. Research about what the killuminati are going to do at the summer Olympics in London. Warn the people about not going there.
