Groupon once again, has what I think is a smokin hot deal. Today you can purchase 5 one-day Blockbuster Express video rentals for $2.  During these cold winter months, what better way to enjoy the day than staying in your warm home and watching your favorite flick.  You can find the deal here on their site. The groupon doesn't expire until May 2013, so you'll have plenty of time to find a movie you will enjoy watching.

This is what Groupon has to say about this deal:
Enter your Groupon rental code at a kiosk using the Blockbuster Express touch screen, then take home the latest smash hits, kids’ flicks, three-hankie melodramas, and Tom Hanksy romantic comedies. Groupon users will be required to swipe their credit or debit cards during their Blockbuster rentals, but will only be charged if rentals are not returned by the 9 p.m. the next day. Since rentals can be returned to any of the conveniently located kiosks, it’s easy to get them back in time. If users want to keep a movie for an extra night, they will be charged the initial rental rate plus tax per night until the discs are returned, a small price to pay for playing Twilight enough times to memorize the musical numbers.

STROKE: Remember the 1st Three Letters..... S. T. R.  (Which are also the first three letters of Stress)

During a BBQ, a woman stumbled and took a little fall - she assured everyone that she was fine (they offered to call paramedics) ....she said she had just tripped over a brick because of her new shoes.

They got her cleaned up and got her a new plate of food.. While she appeared a bit shaken up, Jane went about enjoying herself the rest of the evening.

Jane's husband called later telling everyone that his wife had been taken to the hospital - (at 6:00 pm Jane passed away.) She had suffered a stroke at the BBQ. Had they known how to identify the signs of a stroke, perhaps Jane would be with us today. Some don't die. They end up in a helpless, hopeless condition instead.

It only takes a minute to read this.

A neurologist says that if he can get to a stroke victim within 3 hours he can totally reverse the effects of a stroke...totally. He said the trick was getting a stroke recognized, diagnosed, and then getting the patient medically cared for within 3 hours, which is tough.

Thank God for the ability to remember the '3' steps, STR. Read and Learn!

Sometimes symptoms of a stroke are difficult to identify. Unfortunately, the lack of awareness spells disaster. The stroke victim may suffer severe brain damage when people nearby fail to recognize the symptoms of a stroke.

Now doctors say a bystander can recognize a stroke by asking three simple questions:

S *Ask the individual to SMILE.

T *Ask the person to TALK and SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE (Coherently)
(i.e. It is sunny out today.)

R *Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS.

If he or she has trouble with ANY ONE of these tasks, call emergency number immediately and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher.

New Sign of a Stroke -------- Stick out Your Tongue

NOTE: Another 'sign' of a stroke is this: Ask the person to 'stick' out his tongue. If the tongue is 'crooked', if it goes to one side or the other, that is also an indication of a stroke.

A cardiologist says if everyone who reads this tells 10 people; you can bet that at least one life will be saved
