Because MLB Spring Training starts this weekend, it seems like a good time to update the phone’s wallpaper. And with my very cost effective subscription to MLB.com’s Gameday Audio service, I’ll be able to catch all the games I want to.
C’mon batter, batter, batter! 🙂
While there is debate over how aggressively high blood pressure should be treated in older patients, the definition of a healthy blood pressure does not change with age for the general population.
Though I’m not quite 70 yet, I am getting pretty darned close. And high blood pressure is a major health concern of mine. We’re adjusting our diet, getting more exercise, trying to lose weight, changing the lifestyle to reduce stress, taking prescribed meds, and monitoring the blood pressure daily: all in an attempt to bring my numbers down and keep them in a healthy range.
And I’m keeping my eyes out for articles like the one sourced here, written for interested nonprofessional folks like me, in an attempt to keep myself educated about the latest news.

Website administration also takes up a lot of my time at the moment.
So yesterday I voted. Texas allows early voting in our Primary Elections. I was wearing a Knights of Columbus cap. As I exited the poling place that cap elicited quite the scowl from a man who was entering. Of course I don’t know what he was thinking, but…
Sitting in the home office doing weekly review and planning, I’ve got an old episode of "The Whistler" keeping me company. Nothing quite like radio horror from the 40s. Seems appropriate.
So there I sat a few minutes ago, peacefully munching on popcorn and listening to the opening quarter of the Spurs/Magic game on my radio, when I heard my phone “ding.” A text message came in.
Look what I found! A mysterious woman had just donated $2.5 million to me. All I had to do was send a message to an equally mysterious email address. I DON’T THINK SO!
That is a classic way of inviting some kind of spammy virus into my phone, tablet, computer – into my system and potentially sharing the infection with every one of my contacts. No, no, no, no! That is something Roscoe does NOT want to do.
Immediately after grabbing the screenshot of that text message to share with you all, I deleted that message from my phone. Hopefully, if any of the rest of you get a similar text message on your phone, you’ll delete it right away, too. Don’t click on the highlighted email address, don’t reply to the mysterious sender, just delete the message right away.
The Calmly Considered blog project never did take off, mostly due the lack of time I had to devote to it. Now, having relieved myself of the heavy workload that I’ve been carrying for too long, I’ve decided to retire the whole domain of which it was a part, and I’ll see if I can return to long form blogging at this Roscoe’s Story joint.
