                Did you know? 

              
 ... that today is Earth Day? Founded on this day in 1970 by Senator Gaylord Nelson, Earth Day was first organized to promote ecology and respect for life on the planet as well as to encourage awareness of the growing problems of air, water and soil pollution. Now a global event each year, Earth Day 2018 is focusing on mobilizing the world to End Plastic Pollution.

Can you recognize this photo?

For the next several months a photo from decades ago will be posted below.  You should be tempted to try and identify the person in the photo.  Write down their name.  Some will be easy; others far more difficult.  But this exercise will be a fun one for you to check out every couple of weeks to see if your memory is still intact and working!  The name of the person in the photo will be posted the next time a new photo is shown.

Last April 9th's photo was of:  Paul Newman, taken during his WWII service in the Navy in the South Pacific.

Here is our April 21st's photo:  Hint: He was an artist!

"True happiness is to enjoy the present without anxious dependence on the future."

“Summer is only the unfulfilled promise of spring, a charlatan in place of the warm balmy nights I dream of in April. It’s a sad season of life without growth…It has no day.”

       The Human Brain and High Blood Pressure

It's rare to hear the terms "brain" and "high blood pressure" used in the same sentence. If the brain is mentioned at all in the context of hypertension, it's usually in the sense that high BP can damage brain tissue if allowed to get out of hand.

But there's a more direct association between the brain and hypertension, according to some researchers, so it's a good idea to keep an eye on the possibility of brain involvement in your own case. Let's take a brief look at the issue:
