    Looks great! Hope the terrorists don't follow you. Enjoy!

    January 6 is what I read before I realized the date you wrote needed to be translated........

    LOL Julie. My first thought was why is Terry so excited about a sale taking place that is 6 months away. Then it dawned on me that Terry has written it the proper way. As Roy constantly reminds me, the American's basterdised the English language. LOL

    @ Clonge,,I was fostered out to a family that owned a fair piece of Maroochydore when i and my brother were 7 and 5 years old,,feels a bit like going full circle...>>>>>>>><<<<<<<<..

    Let's just type our dates the easy way from now on. How about June 01, 2015? Wouldn't that work for all of us here? :)

    Thanks Sunny, i intend to work on it ..>>>>>>>><<<<<<<..

    When I retired I thought my life would be much easier since I did not have to show up at work nearly every day. But I soon learned that my body was loosing mussel as I gained weight from snacking all day on the computer. My blood pressure was going up and my ability to walk around was less and less motivated. My doctor flatly said I should exercise more, prescribed a pill to reduce the water in my system and had a blood test done. The water pill made me urinate frequently so I had to drink a lot more water that if I did not drink my balancing system would stop working and it was nearly impossible to walk around without falling down. Lots of water needed every day and pretty soon I was getting backaches that my doctor said were kidney stones from all the water I had to drink. He prescribed pills and told me if that keeps-up I may have to get surgery to get the kidney stones removed. I studied all I could on the subject and after a while I decided to drink distilled water rather than tap water with all of its chemicals and minerals that contributed to the stones that my kidneys were producing. I haven't had any more problems with kidney stones but my blood pressure stayed high. So I looked for ways to control my blood pressure. My doctors tried a array of medications that did not work very well. I was feeling tired a lot and started exercising more which seemed to help a little. A friend suggested an herbal supplement..Rhodiola I ordered a bottle of that which greatly benefited my mood and with exercise, brought my blood pressure down to safe levels.

    Living past the socially expected D-DAY is a challenge that many choose to take on by laying down and simply dying. But I would rather do anything I can to prolong my physical life as long as possible. I have no fear of death which is why I seek to maximize my life further and further .      


    I still enjoy a wee drink now and again, as long as I still wake up of a morning I know I can carry on doing!

    Wonderful news, Terry, and something you've been looking forward to for quite awhile. You are probably getting settled in as I write this "Congratulations, and may you and Mrs. enjoy many happy adventures and your new home for decades!"
