276th post

Note: I finally found out how to upload a video from YouTube to Facebook.

It's been a long time coming. It should be available on Facebook, YouTube, 

Weebly and Twitter. 

For those who have seen it, I thank you. For those who have seen it and 

subscribed, I thank.

I'm going to attempt to do at least 1 video a week to start and depending on 

the feedback, I will make a decision on continuing or not.

The best ways to give me feedback on the videos is with a honest comment

on Facebook or an email to me at fcaricofe@gmail.com. Thank you.

BACK TO OUR HOUSE ON OTTOBINE ROAD....

CONTINUED FROM YESTERDAY....

After driving past Bridgewater High School, I don't remember much that was

to the either side of Dinkle Avenue, but Father screeched to a halt shortly at the

stop sign that signaled that Dinkle Avenue had ended and Father needed to 

turn onto State Route 42. If he turned to the left we would, in about a mile, cross

over the North Fork of the Shenandoah River. This is the same river that we 

crossed over going to or from our Grandparent Cline's home and flowed about 

one mile south of Mt. Crawford and just under the bridge  while driving on 

US Route 11. The river flowed eastward at both points, of course, and eventually

flowed into the Potomac River and that in turn flowed eastward into the Atlantic

Ocean.

But we were going BACK TO OUR HOUSE ON OTTOBINE ROAD.... so Father 

hit the throttle and the big car responded like a jack rabbit as Father made a quick

turn to the right. I don't remember the places along State Route 42 (Main Street

in Bridgewater), either, except maybe a church to the left just after Father turned

and a building that looks old today. just 2 minutes walk from the church and on 

the left as well. It's a resturant today and might have been then for all I know.

Well maybe, if I sleep on it, I can remember some more things by tomorrow....

TO BE CONTINUED....

NIH News in Health

What Is Cholesterol?

"To understand high blood cholesterol (ko-LES-ter-ol), it helps to learn about 

cholesterol. Cholesterol is a waxy, fat-like substance that’s found in all cells 

of the body.

Your body needs some cholesterol to make hormones, vitamin D, and 

substances that help you digest foods. Your body makes all the cholesterol 

it needs. However, cholesterol also is found in some of the foods you eat.

Cholesterol travels through your bloodstream in small packages called 

lipoproteins (lip-o-PRO-teens). These packages are made of fat (lipid) on 

the inside and proteins on the outside.

Two kinds of lipoproteins carry cholesterol throughout your body: 

low-density lipoproteins (LDL) and high-density lipoproteins (HDL). Having 

healthy levels of both types of lipoproteins is important.

LDL cholesterol sometimes is called “bad” cholesterol. A high LDL level 

leads to a buildup of cholesterol in your arteries. (Arteries are blood vessels 

that carry blood from your heart to your body.)

HDL cholesterol sometimes is called “good” cholesterol. This is because it 

carries cholesterol from other parts of your body back to your liver. Your 

liver removes the cholesterol from your body.

What Is High Blood Cholesterol?

High blood cholesterol is a condition in which you have too much cholesterol 

in your blood. By itself, the condition usually has no signs or symptoms. 

Thus, many people don’t know that their cholesterol levels are too high.

People who have high blood cholesterol have a greater chance of getting 

coronary heart disease, also called coronary artery disease. (In this article, 

the term “heart disease” refers to coronary heart disease.)

The higher the level of LDL cholesterol in your blood, the GREATER your 

chance is of getting heart disease. The higher the level of HDL cholesterol 

in your blood, the LOWER your chance is of getting heart disease.

Coronary heart disease is a condition in which plaque (plak) builds up 

inside the coronary (heart) arteries. Plaque is made up of cholesterol, fat, 

calcium, and other substances found in the blood. When plaque builds up 

in the arteries, the condition is called atherosclerosis (ATH-er-o-skler-O-sis).

Atherosclerosis....

Over time, plaque hardens and narrows your coronary arteries. This limits 

the flow of oxygen-rich blood to the heart.

Eventually, an area of plaque can rupture (break open). This causes a blood 

clot to form on the surface of the plaque. If the clot becomes large enough, it 

can mostly or completely block blood flow through a coronary artery.

If the flow of oxygen-rich blood to your heart muscle is reduced or blocked, 

angina (an-JI-nuh or AN-juh-nuh) or a heart attack may occur.

Angina is chest pain or discomfort. It may feel like pressure or squeezing in 

your chest. The pain also may occur in your shoulders, arms, neck, jaw, or 

back. Angina pain may even feel like indigestion.

A heart attack occurs if the flow of oxygen-rich blood to a section of heart 

muscle is cut off. If blood flow isn’t restored quickly, the section of heart 

muscle begins to die. Without quick treatment, a heart attack can lead to 

serious problems or death.

Plaque also can build up in other arteries in your body, such as the arteries 

that bring oxygen-rich blood to your brain and limbs. This can lead to 

problems such as carotid artery disease, stroke, and peripheral artery 

disease.

Outlook

Lowering your cholesterol may slow, reduce, or even stop the buildup of 

plaque in your arteries. It also may reduce the risk of plaque rupturing and 

causing dangerous blood clots.

The image focuses on high cholesterol in women and explains how high 

cholesterol increases the risk of developing heart disease. An 

estimated 1 in 2 women has high or borderline high cholesterol.  The image 

also lists the ranges of total cholesterol numbers for high, borderline high, 

and desirable cholesterol levels, and breaks down the percentage of women 

who have high cholesterol in their twenties, thirties, forties, and fifties.

MY OPINION

I don't rightly know if my opinions are any good especially if no one is listening

or reading. But I'll voice mine anyway.

The political situation in this country has settled down some and I'm glad for

that. Being an outsider with little or no political experience, Donald Trump has 

quieted his former critics to include Republicans, Democrats and others.

He has rid himself of most of the lobbyists, attempting to start off with a clean

slate liked he promised. He is not afraid to fire those people, who might be 

loyal to him, who have conflict of interests or other troubling aspects of their 

pasts. 

America has never been afraid of change. The immigration of people from

around the world is a reason for that. America is still a young nation (240 years

old), but has changed and adapted well even though there was some major

disagreements during the Civil War. But America survived that and continues 

to evolve as a free and democratic country.

Bottom line, I believe Donald Trump will make peace with most of those 

Americans who did not vote for him, establish good relations with foreign 

nations and become a Presidential personality instead of the personality he

used while running for the Presidency. The only thing I'm afraid of is what 

would happen if he is assassinated?

New Senate Minority Leader Chuck Shumer 

By Greg Richter   |   Wednesday, 16 Nov 2016 10:33 PM

"Democrats may take the if-you-can't-beat-'em-join-'em approach now that 

Republicans will control the White House and both chambers of Congress 

for at least the next two years.

Rather than simply fight losing battles, congressional Democrats are 

considering proposing legislation on issues in which they agree with 

President-elect Donald Trump, but traditional Republicans oppose, The New 

York Times reports.

Among the typically Democratic issues Trump championed in his campaign: 

more spending on infrastructure, punishment for American companies that 

send U.S. jobs to other countries, getting rid of a tax break for hedge fund and 

private equity managers and mandatory paid maternity leave and child tax 

credits.

"Senator Chuck Schumer of New York, elected Wednesday as the new 

Democratic minority leader, has spoken with Mr. Trump several times, and 

Democrats in coming weeks plan to announce populist economic and ethics 

initiatives they think Mr. Trump might like," the Times writes.

For that matter, some Democrats have taken to using Trump's own words in an 

effort to appeal to the blue collar workers they lost to Trump.

"Every single person in our caucus agrees the system is rigged," Democratic 

Sen. Debbie Stabenow of Michigan said.

The other alternative, trying to rally their coalition of interest groups in hopes 

of running against what they hope will be an ineffective President Trump, 

doesn't seem to be a high priority.

"We need to do a better job having a bold sharp focus on the economy," said 

Minnesota Democratic Sen. Amy Klobuchar. "It is not just being a collection of 

groups. It's talking about policies in a serious way and talking about them in a 

way that touches all Americans.""

I was able to water the bare places in the yard yesterday that I had grass 

seeded and that's about all. It was foggy and is really foggy this morning.

I went out to the garage (4:02 AM 11/17/2016 EDT) to make my first pot of 

coffee and I could feel the heaviness of the air upon my shoulders.

To me the four letter words of snow, hail and cold are much like cuss words

and I can see by the forecast that Saturday and Sunday will be the 74th year 

of my life that I will have to endure it.

I went out again to the garage ( 6:38 AM 11/17/2016 EDT) to make my 2nd pot 

of coffee. I had a kippered herring snack sandwich with no butter. The bread

is 100 calories for two slices and the herring is 130 calories for a total of 230 

calories.

I use to expend 4,000 calories a day while working in the flower beds and the

yard and eating 4,000 calories of food to maintain the same weight. Now I'm 

only expending maybe 2,000 calories a day, but still eating 4,000 calories a

day, so at least I'm gaining 1 pound every 2 days and I'm approaching a BMI of

30. So, my plan is to try and eat only 1,500 calories a day and hopefully lose 

some weight.
