    Is that the reason ISIS killed the judge that sentenced Saddam to hang??

    Your theory doesn't hold water.

Chuck got me into talking about sailing so I invited him out to which he famously replied "Dear me, I should say that as an officer in the Royal Navy the last place you should have me is on a sailboat."

    I have discovered that we do not have to hit on anyone....they come to us. Not kidding, I am approached all the time by women in the early 20's. I confess though, I have cultivated the look, I am fit, 6' 210, with white hair and beard and a snappy African walking stick.

    I think they have the mistaken belief that I am "safe"....

    but had I known then what I have come to know about women now, I would not have gotten to be old....
    I love the irony that men age better, especially with all the princesses running around here.
    At work we have a "sexy cold war" going on between the medical staff, all the younger ones trying to out do each other. Im sure to tell each when they look nice, gotta stir the pot.

    There are some stunning nurses, but they have to wear scrubs.

    however by that time acting on it is dangerous
    Ive treated many of those patients, both in and out of the hospital. Still I can think of worse ways to go.

    Think Obama would be that cool?
    Obama would probably threaten the surgeons just before he was put under anesthesia.

They were obviously afraid to find out something that Bush would not like hearing. Like a REAL Al Qaeda plot.

    I asked you what strategy you would recommend, not strategies that you wouldn't.

    Ha....

    I know about the "General Hospital" syndrome, my first was a cardiac care nurse and my doc and I are best friends...

    Now take that atmosphere into live television, a newsroom of 80% women and seven out of eleven on air talent are "hair dos that talk".

    Now try being the producer.....

    Yes, and when we are careful we do age much better. The truth is guys like me are rare. Every man my age I know was diagnosed diabetic got the scrip, ignored the classes and went on eating the **** that got them there. My diabetes clinic treats me like Eisenhower arriving in Europe - here's one did what we said! Almost every guy I know gave up exercise long ago and a former friend I used to hike into the mountains and fish with invested in a buggy some while back and never walked again. Screw fishing, he could live two years on body fat

    Talking hair do's.
    The irony of DM is that if people would control their sugar levels, almost all of the comorbidities would disappear. Tragically by the time many of them do appear the damage is done.
