I will be 81 in September. When my grandfather died at 75 I was about six years old and I lay on the floor looking at the ceiling and promised myself I would try to get to 100. His wife, my dear grandmother, made 96. That's only one side. The other side, not so lucky. But I do hold to the Meditteranean diet. Ten or even twelve vegetables per day, lots of Caucasus kefir, no red meat, and lots of vitamins. Eschew the confined animal cruelty. Pray and have reverence for a higher power, as AA says. Have respect for life and be part of the natural world. Respect the ancestors who have come before and shown the way. Do not throw away their wisdom for a mess of lentil soup.

There is every chance that you just might make it, particularly with that dietary regime. I hope you do.
But I don't understand what's wrong with lentil soup? I regard a good lentil soup as a thing of beauty.


It's a metaphor about Jacob and his brother. Jacob conned Esau into selling him his inheritance for a bowl of matzo ball lentil soup.  ;D

Of course.



Your honesty and noble humility have always been aspects of your personality that I admire greatly. 

You sir , are certainly NOT a dumbass! You are gettin' old, just like the rest of us.

Hope deferred maketh the heart sick: but when the desire cometh, it is a tree of life. Pr. 13:12
