Let's start by thank anyone and everyone who gave to their charity of choice yesterday. We don't have any final numbers from Give MN, but I'm sure Minnesotans stepped up like always. Thanks everyone.
Now, a question. Here on November 17th, can you remember the last time you got a checkup? What was the date? If you can't remember, it has been too long. Call today and make an appointment. Have the check your blood pressure, your cholesterol, check for cancers with simple tests. Yeah. You. Not that other guy that you think needs to get checked. You.
It doesn't matter what age you are. All of our readers (you, too ladies) need to get a checkup at the very least once a year. Get in there and get it done. How about you call today?
