It is well documented that for every minute you exercise, you add a minute to your life. This enables you, at 85 years of age, to spend an additional 5 months in a nursing home at $5000 per month! My grandmother started walking five miles a day when she was 60. Now she's 97 years old and we don't know where the hell she is! The only reason I would take up exercising is so that I could hear heavy breathing again. I joined a health club last year and spent about 400 bucks. Haven't losta pound. Apparently you have to show up. I have to exercise early in the morning before my brain figures out what I'm doing. I like long walks... especially when they are taken by people who annoy me. I have flabby thighs, but fortunately my stomach covers them. The advantage of exercising every day is that you die healthier. If you are going to try cross-country skiing, start with a small country. And last, but not least, I don't exercise because it makes the ice jump right out of my glass! You could run this over to your friends but why not just e-mail it to them!

When I used to smoke, people would say "it'll take seven years off your life!" My response, "would that be the seven years less in a nursing home?" I did, however, quit smoking five years ago. It was starting to take it's toll. I'm just glad to be able to breathe well again.
