Falling for Hello, Once in awhile you run into a deal that you can't possibly turn down. You know, one of those deals that are too good to be true. So it most likely isn't. It may be a phone call about winning the lottery, it may be your phone number was chosen randomly and you have won a new TV or sid- ing on your house. It may be that the guys blacktopping the highway have enough leftover to do your driveway for almost nothing. Or you may be having a drink With friends after the cow sale and: someone offers tO sell you a bull for two dollars. Not two dollars a pound. Not two dollars a hundred. But two dollars! Two dollars for an entire bull! There was a little catch. The bull was in a relatively inaccessible area on the reservation. The bull was crip- pled. The bull was on the fight. It would be a challenge. Shannon and I decided it would be an adventure. At our age, getting up at night to go to the bathroom is an adventure. Let alone going into the wilderness after a mad bull. The next day, bright and early, about eleven, we loaded up and headed north. Since we didn't know where the bull was, we decided to take 4-wheelers instead of horses. We could spot the bull, determine if he was worth two dollars, and get him the next trip. Just in case, we took a couple of panels, two catch ropes, a halter, and a dart gun with deal too good to be tru Hat Tips By Dean Meyer some medication to put him to sleep. Oh yes, and a bale of hay. 1 figured we could dart him, halter him, tie him to a tree, give him a bale of hay, and get hiin the next day. We unloaded, went over a cliff with the 4-wheelers, through a gate, and the search began. I explained to Shannon that if one of us spotted problem. "You get in the pickup and I will lind you a trail. Just follow me." And he did. He's not real smart sometimes. We took a thirty thousand dollar pickup and a fifteen thousand dollar trailer over rocks, hills, and trees. We slid down hills that you would have been nervous riding a horse down. But we got to the bull.

Blood pressure is the fi)rce of blood against your artery walls. When you have your blood pressure taken, you receive a reading that has two numbers. The lop one refers to your systolic pressure, which is when the heart beats, and the bottom one measures diastolic pressure, which is when the heart relaxes between beats. A normal range is considered less than 120 for systolic and less than 80 for diastolic. Your blood pressure rises and falls continuously throughout the day. When it stays el- ewlted over time, then you are likely to be diagnosed with high bh od pressure. What is high blood pressure? More than 65 million--or one in three--American adults have hieh blood pressure. A systolic reading of 140 or higher and a diastolic reading of 90 or higher indicate high blood pressure. If you arc in the 120- 139 over 80-89 range, you have prehy- pertension, which means you should take active steps now to avoid devel- oping tfigh blood pressure. The more your blood pressure rises above nor- real th 'gfeate i- 'tile heaiih' rL k . ' Why, d 0es it matter if my blood pressure is high? High I lood pressure makes yotu heart work too hard. The increased blood flow can harm arteries and cause organs t() work too hard. caus- ing major health problems, Uncon- trolled high blood pressure can lead to heart: attacks, kidney disease. stroke and blindness. How do I know if ! have high blood pressure? There often arc no warning signs or symptoms so it's important to have annual checkut s with your doc- tor. Blood pressure monitors are also often available tit no charge at drug- stores and near pharmacies at other stores. Even il' you don't have high blood pressure now, your risk of de- veloping it increases greatly as you age. So it's advisable to take healthy steps at any age that can prevent de- veloping high blood pressure or con- trol it if you've already been diag- nosed. Reducing your risk factors Practice healthy habits like phys- ical activity most days of every week and maintain your weight in the nor- real range. If you drink alcohol, do so in moderation. And if you've al- ready been diagnosed with high blood pressure, it's important to take your prescribed medication as your physician has directed. Change your caring habits to incorporate the [)ASH (Dietary Approaches to Stop I lypertension) plan. What is DASH? The National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute studies have shown that blood pressure can be reduced with a diet that is low in fat and cho- lesterol and lowers sodium intake. In several studies, people who had high blood pressure saw the greatest re- ductions when they followed a nutri- tional plan, which has become known as the DASH eating plan.
