It is claimed the modest exercise will lower blood pressure, so I figured I would give it a try. Of course this meant that I needed to do some sort of physical activity. But I wanted to do something that would have some practical value. So I spent the last couple months building a screen porch on the back of the house. Actually
it was something I was planning on doing for some time, because I like to getting away from the air conditioning, nevertheless I do not like prospect of feeding the mosquitoes while sitting outside and relaxing.
Anyway it worked, on those days when I was moderately active my BP averaged about 20 points lower. The only problem is that I now need a new project.
Same view as before but at night.
There are eight dangly little lights that are solar power. Each light consists of 12 white LED�s pointing down plus 3 on top for �ambience�
. Sitting directly under one of them there is enough light to read by. In addition in the center I made a ceiling fan that is also solar powered.
For technically minded the total power needed to run all the lights is 4.3 watts
The 5-blade 52� fan requires about 12 watts and produces a decent breeze
