    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...

    So How Should We Be Treated Fair

    I think almost everyone would agree, we do not want to be living very old, that we could be a burden to our loved ones. Once we come to realize that we are getting old comes the idea of fears from getting old. Fear, mostly of becoming to be a burden. But who knows what would...
