Wilderness Walk for 11-14-2011

We have had several suggestions on widgets to track certain things this year. One was "Good Zidlicky vs "Bad Zidlicky" games, one was games with a goal by the third line, but not the first. What might be more fun is to count the number of times our casual sports fan friends jump on and off the band wagon. Everyone back on board? Good. Buckle up.

Yesterday we talked a bit about diabetes, and the fact that many people who have it don't even know. How much better, and longer, their lives might be if they would just get a checkup and find out. However, diabetes isn't the only disease that is sneaking up on people. According to Movember, 50 million Americans have high blood pressure, and have no idea.

Seriously folks? High blood pressure? The fun little cuff thing at Target doesn't get you every time? Go get a check up. Join Movember. Donate to the cause. Three simle things that can help you, and others, live healthier lives.

Links after the jump.
