If You Have Dreams…

You still might have nightmares. I have written this line from the movie Diner in a few posts, “If you don’t have dreams you have nightmares.” Last night I had a dream that I was going to pick up my completed restomod C2 Corvette. (I told you I was obsessed.) However, when I arrived at the address I was given no one was there. The building was enormous and I had no idea how to find my car or how to get out of the building.

So I dreamt that my bucket list car was complete, but I couldn’t find it or find anyone who could tell me what was going on. What can I say?

I think, however, that means my Z4 is not long for my garage if I am already dreaming about its replacement, no matter how unhappy the dream.

Out?

 

In?

From corvetteblogger.com a picture of a 1967 Corvette restomod. It is the same picture I showed here.

I have an afternoon of cardiac testing today. As noted in this post, I recently spent a morning in the ER because my heart was generating an abnormal frequency of PVCs, Premature Ventricular Contractions. I have had PVCs my entire life probably because I have Mitral Valve Prolapse.

People are very worried, and rightly so, about cancer, but heart disease kills more people every year than cancer. From the CDC:

2017 US Deaths By Cause

Heart Disease          635,260

Cancer                      598,038

The data is similar for 2015:

Heart Disease          633,842

Cancer                      595,930

 

Many of these 1.2 million deaths are preventable. I am going to rant…if you are 100 pounds overweight you didn’t get that way overnight. Americans want a magic pill, a magic diet or a magic surgery. Magic isn’t real; it’s an illusion. You didn’t gain the weight overnight; you can’t really lose the weight overnight. The CDC estimates that 71% of American adults are overweight. Not coincidentally, most studies put the percentage of American adults who don’t exercise regularly at about 70%.

Don’t take your health for granted and don’t count on “magic” to make you better. Besides, if Americans get fit maybe they’ll stop buying so many SUVs and pickup trucks and buy some exciting cars, instead.
