The Perks of Being Over 50

Snagged from this website:

1. Kidnappers are not very interested in you.
2. In a hostage situation, you are likely to be released first.
3. No one expects you to run -- anywhere.
4. People call at 9 p.m. and ask, "Did I wake you?"
5. People no longer view you as a hypochondriac.
6. There is nothing left to learn the hard way.
7. Things you buy now won't wear out.
8. You can eat dinner at 4 p.m.
9. You can live without sex (though not without glasses).
10. You enjoy hearing about other people's operations.
11. You get into heated arguments about pension plans.
12. You have a party and the neighbors don't even realize it.
13. You no longer think of speed limits as a challenge.
14. You quit trying to hold your stomach in, no matter who walks into the room.
15. You sing along with elevator music.
16. Your eyes won't get much worse.
17. Your investment in health insurance is finally beginning to pay off.
18. Your joints are more accurate meteorologists than the National Weather Service.
19. Your secrets are safe with your friends because they can't remember them, either.
20. Your supply of brain cells is finally down to a manageable size.

Edward,  You may get away with a few hundred bucks to get the master computer checked and re-coded.  then again, you could have something like my '03 Saturn.  MULTIPLE processors, thankfully not interconnected.  Test at mechanic shows the factory default codes, and it wouldn't accept new codes.  At over $1000 for the part (labor and new codes not included), and the vehicle running, I'm not spending the cash.  OTOH, I just priced the equivalent Chevy to replace the old VUE, and it's in the neighborhood of $35-40K

Art. That makes a lot of sense.

Newsflash - having the gym 'membership' burns no more calories than before you got it! Discipline of getting my sorry butt there is tough to come by. But I've never been disappointed once I got there.
Comment by Elon Erani on Monday

Edward good going! Soon u will become Jack LaLane Jr. LOl. I 2nd what Carl said. Things can be replaced, but without good health, nothing is important. Keep on trucking!

Comment by Rick Shelton on Monday

Edward,

Sounds as though the CPU is gone with that many errors all at once.  I hope that's it because it's less expensive than a new vehicle.

Comment by David Tindell on Monday

 I should also add that I continue with martial arts training. A couple months ago I was awarded a black belt in ryukudo kobujutsu, the study of Okinawan weaponry. My wife joined me in this training early in 2010 with no previous experience, whereas I had already gotten trained for years in taekwondo and achieved black belt status there. I started late in martial arts (nearly 14 years ago now) but it's never too late and well worth the effort.

TRX is a body-weight workout system developed by a Navy SEAL that uses suspension straps. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Suspension_training

About a year or so go my local gym turned one of its side gyms, which had been a racquetball court, into a TRX gym and our training is conducted by a young lady who is a certified trainer. (And quite attractive, which doesn't hurt.) I highly recommend this training.

A car is just a tool, replaceable.

Yea, it's money, but in the scheme of things your good health is far, far more valuable, and actually, priceless.

Comment by Edward Warden on Monday

Tonight I started my workout with 102 pushups -- a new high for me. That's the good news. The bad news is that my car may be biting the dust. Several alarms went off today: ABS, Service 4X4, Service Brake System, and 4X4 Locked Temporarily. I'm probably lucky I got it to the auto shop, where they'll look at it tomorrow. It's an '05 Escape with 157K miles. The odometer on my '92 Saturn stopped at 178K, and it ran for years after that. I guess they don't make cars like they used to.

David. What is a TRX class?
