Prune picker

This is the blog site of an old man. As a native Californian I call myself a prune picker. I live in a fifth wheel trailer. My front door is 25 steps from my daughter’s front door in the Piney Woods of North Louisiana. My blogs are often silly and or trivial, and some times educational and serious. I hope that some are interesting. None are long.

Preparing these blogs seems to fill a need in my life. I am compelled to do it. It helps fill the time until I die. It gives me something to do everyday.

Weight, vital signs, and weather measurements.

I am going to add weather data to the weight and vital signs that I measure and add to my blog each day. There will be eleven columns of data. They are:
1. Date.
2. Weight, pounds.
3. Waist measurement, inches.
4. High blood pressure, pounds per square inch.
5. Low blood pressure, pounds per square inch.
6. Pulse, heart beats per minute.
7. Body temperature.
8. Steps I have made in the day.
9. High outside temperature during the day.
10. Low outside temperature. Both temperature measurements will be taken at my trailer.
11. Rainfall, inches.

Blood pressure instrument, tape, thermometer, pedometer, and inside/outside thermometer.

  1. Boy that is true. It is a make work project for me. I have to take the steps before I can post them, etc. Some of the data is handy when I have a Doctor appointment. In a short time I will have enough data to make a data nut happy.
