Just so you guys know I'm fighting some health issues and expect to be missing some computer time for a while. I'll attack Robs card this week on ebay but then I need to spend my extra time getting back in fighting condition :) The last couple of weeks my blood pressure has risen to 250/100 a few times. It was as high as 283/117 so I need to address this and give it my total effort to get it under control.

Thanks for understanding and will miss talking to you's,

Get well soon Jonas! :)
I'm sure as Rob said you are in treatment already, but just in case the Passion Fruit juice will help you down your preasure quite good, also a bean called in spanish "gandul" I don't know how you call that in english or if even can be found on the States, but what I can tell you is that if you take one straight from the plant and eat it, it works as fine as any pill the Physician may recomend you.
Anyway get well soon and good luck on ebay! ;)

Wishing you a speedy recovery. Nothing is more important than your health. Your high blood pressure is nothing to fool around with and I am glad that you are taking it seriously.
