May 19, 2008
We got our checks from Georgie and except for my wife getting new glasses, it's all going to bills! Just like this poll point out!
Still have lots of messed up activity on my street. Still working at it. Still tiring. I am planning to be out of town for a week so I need to figure out feeling safe about stuff.

Meditation and Blood Pressure! (My Excuse - now that I'm doing Yoga, might as well restart my meditation)
Wouldn't it be great if your mind had a superpower that made your blood pressure behave? It does! A review of nine major studies says your mind could budge your blood pressure in a healthy direction if you give it a meditation break. Regular practice helps lower both systolic (the top number) and diastolic pressure.
Breathe In, Breathe OutMeditation -- that ancient art of focusing on a phrase or mantra, letting your breath flow in and out, and allowing your thoughts to gently come and go -- is a proven stress reliever. And research now shows that regularly practicing transcendental meditation may have blood pressure benefits.
