    No One In My Family Has Made It to 80 ...

    That's what I consider an old age ...  and it would be unrealistic of me to think I'll see my 80th as well :) ...  Being resigned to the inevitable has lead to a bit of a haphazard attitude toward life, in that while I do try to be as health conscious as makes sense to...
