      The secret is a daily dose of donuts and weekly bingo! My friend, Marsh, died at 98. At 97, he was still driving himself to bingo and to the bakery every morning for fresh donuts.

    Lack of stress is the key - I am convinced!  I try very hard not to give a damn about anything in the hopes of seeing my as yet unorn child graduate big_smile

    I met Jack years ago in his Oakland gym.
    He was a little guy.
    He started European Health spas which I think became Ballys health spas.
    I also met him on Catalina Island. He'd been drinking beer.
    He jumped in that frigid water and swam from the pavilion to the pier.
    He was a great spokesman for what I've done all my life: weightlifting.
    There's a time for us all to say "it was a helluva ride....g'bye!"

    G'bye Jack!
