This post has nothing to do with art, interiors, or anything pretty, but if it can help anyone....
Have you ever known a relatively young, physically fit person to die of a heart attack? I have. I've known too many people in their 40's who seem healthy to die suddenly of a heart attack.
As most of you know, heart disease is the number one cause of death in women. I'm kind of a "nip things in the bud" kinda person, so I wanted to asses my own risk of a heart attack. Since I'm turning 40 in a few months, I decided to go get a calcium heart scan. This is a non-invasive test that shows the amount of calcified plaque in the heart, a process that begins when we are children. It is not covered by insurance. But it is so worth it.
My risks? It turns out they are low at this point. Relief for my family!

My tulips finally came out this week suddenly. They'd been teasing me for days. It makes me realize Spring is really here, which means we'll probably get a snowstorm next week! :)
I never did get around to starting those seeds. I'll have to buy the real plants this year again. Maybe next year......
Updated April 23 2:12 PM: I think I jinxed myself. Here are my tulips now:It never fails! Snow on my tulips every year!
