    Women in my family regularly approach triple digits and a few have even passed it. Men however tend to kick it around 70.

    And that’s the “healthy” men.

    Total crap shoot with my family's history. My dad - his mother died at 48, his dad died at 89 and he died at 72. My mother - her dad died at 57, her mother died at 63 and she died at 92. I think I would pizz off a lot of people if I lived to a very old age.

    My biggest take away from other life expectancy studies in the US is that for the first time they are starting to decrease which was not what was expected. This was mostly blamed on lifestyle choices but who knows.

    Same here, it’s paradoxical.

    "Hope a lot of you guys stick around a while..."

    So you are hoping some of us don't stick around?

    I'm in the light blue.:eek:
    I heard a lady from the Health Dept talking the other day. She says our county is in the "stroke belt" that extends across to the SE US. I figure with my occupation living an average of 64 years and the stroke belt stuff, I'm a goner before Medicare.
    I should retire next week...:grvn
