  1. There ain't no cure for the summertime blues

    I had my annual physical last week and got my blood test results. Well, Iím healthy. All that exercise has really paid off. My total cholesterol is 172, well below the 200 max. But whatís really good is that my HDL cholesterol (thatís the good kind) is 60, way above the 46 min and the LDL (bad cholesterol) is 103, well below the 130 max.
