    Bret ..hope all is well..Well have not been here for a spell but hope everyone is doing okay..about last Monday my better half had the same problem with heart rate high and blood pressure going thru the roof. Took him to the VA in Dallas ( great hospital). After test and nitro given it was a chemical imbalance in his system. Not enough potassium..?? What ???
    so with the week behind us and mega doses and now with the daily requirements he is 1oo% better..go figure. He told me Friday that he has not felt this good in years. Icehouse take care and hope it is just that..but if not you are in our thoughts and prayers and take care of yourself..

    Here's a tearjerker for you, Frank.

    This song gives me goosebumps.
    JP....for some reason I can't view in Canada...eh!? Something about a copyright violation...???

    For us Canucks...it about this... http://www.redfridays.ca/emailstory.htm
    and this:





    Red Shirt

    If the red shirt thing is new to you, read below how it went for a man...

    Last week, while traveling to Toronto on business, I noticed an army sergeant traveling with a folded flag, but did not put two and two together.

    After we boarded our flight, I turned to the sergeant, who'd been invited to sit in First Class ( across from me), and inquired if he was heading home.

    'No', he responded.

    'Heading out', I asked?

    'No. I'm escorting a soldier home.'

    'Going to pick him up?'

    'No. He is with me right now. He was killed in Afganistan, I'm taking him home to his family.'

    The realization of what he had been asked to do hit me like a punch to the gut. It was an honour for him. He told me that, although he didn't know the soldier, he had delivered the news of his passing to the soldier's family and felt as if he knew them after many conversations in so few days.

    I turned back to him, extended my hand, and said, 'Thank you. Thank you for doing what you do so my family and I can do what we do.'

    Upon landing in Toronto , the pilot stopped short of the gate and made the following announcement over the intercom.

    'Ladies and gentlemen, I would like to note that we have had the honor of having Sergeant Steeley of the Canadian Armed Forces join us on this flight. He is escorting a fallen comrade back home to his family. I ask that you please remain in your seats when we open the forward door to allow Sergeant Steeley to deplane and receive his fellow soldier. We will then turn off the seat belt sign.'

    Without a sound, all went as requested. I noticed the sergeant saluting the casket as it was brought off the plane, and his action made me realize that I am proud to be a Canadian.

    So here's a public Thank You to our military Men and Women for what you do so we can live the way we do.

    Red Fridays.

    Very soon, you will see a great many people wearing Red every Friday. The reason? Canadians who support our troops used to be called the 'silent majority.' We are no longer silent, and are voicing our love for God, country and home in record breaking numbers. We are not organized, boisterous or overbearing.

    Many Canadians, like you, me and all our friends, simply want to recognize that the vast majority of Canadians supports our troops. Our idea of showing solidarity and support for our troops with dignity and respect starts this Friday and continues each and every Friday until the troops all come home, sending a deafening message that every red-blooded Canadian who supports our men and women afar, will wear something red.

    By word of mouth, press, TV -- let's make Canada on every Friday a sea of red much like a homecoming Hockey game in the bleachers. If every one of us who loves this country will share this with acquaintances, co-workers, friends, and family, it will not be long before the Canada is covered in RED and it will let our troops know the once 'silent' majority is on their side more than ever, certainly more than the media lets on.

    The first thing a soldier says when asked 'What can we do to make things better for you?' is 'We need your support and your prayers.' Let's get the word out and lead with class and dignity, by example, and wear something red every Friday.

    IF YOU AGREE -- THEN SEND THIS ON.
    IF YOU COULDN'T CARE LESS -- THEN HIT THE DELETE BUTTON




    IT IS WITH EXTREME PRIDE THAT I WEAR A RED SHIRT EVERY FRIDAY AND HONOUR THESE FALLEN BRAVE.....lest we forget.....

    LET'S MAKE IT NORTH AMERICAN WIDE......EVERY FRIDAY.....THE LEAST WE CAN DO....

    Doug,

    The song is called 'The 8th of November' by a band called Big & Rich.

    Most of their stuff is off-beat and light hearted.

    That song is a kick in the teeth.

    I don't know of anything to say to reassure you in your time of need, so, often, I say nothing so as not to be thought a fool.

    I am here, wishing you and your wife the best. I just struggle sometimes to find the right words to say it.
    JP IMO those are the right words

    I my times of stuggle you never fail to be there and the words you gave were the right words.

    Potassium is very important. Without enough, the heart won't beat. With too much, it stops beating.

    A banana now and then is just enough.
