I tend to lubricate my system with C2H5OH which helps me forget about all my ailments.

steven hawking still seems to be happy .... 1942 - ...... ?


Didn't you know ? He's been replaced with a lookalike - see the conspiracy theories for a good laugh - that's just as therapeutic !
Whilst enjoying some c2h5oh of course. Hopefully with flavonoids....

My mother displayed similar symptoms and thought it was a complication from the diabetes she was left with after pancreatic cancer 22 years ago.
Turns out she had a dodgy heart valve and had it replaced - full of energy now, able to zip/jog again, eyesight recovering, shakes have gone.
She's 71 now and not stopping.

Hmmm... I hear a voice in my head shouting "pull-up, pull-up" :-)

I've never been much of a runner, but do enjoy cycling as exercise. Hills get the heart rate up, even with 21 gears..... Probably the worst thing about cycling here is the idiots behind the wheel of their one tonne (or 30 tonne) vehicles. I've seen a few [adult] trikes around here too, if it starts affecting your balance....

Don't know what it's like around Tokoroa, but not too bad around here in Wairarapa, as long as you're careful. I recently bought a new bike, and have to say the ones with disc brakes stop a LOT faster than the old 'V' brake styles. Useful for emergencies, but still doesn't stop you being forced off the road by a bad driver.

Par's on the money with this one:

Could be a good idea to ditch the Ute and start biking Bruce! Lycra optional extra ;)

I tried cycling (used to love it when younger) but the traffic around here is so ill-behaved that it scared the crap out of me.

I'll be walking come summer -- 10K per day (too and from work) is enough and gives plenty of time for thought/reflection as well as boosting one's metabolism and general fitness.

I have no intentions of lingering wrecked and/or gibbering.
No point at all

I'm with Terry Pratchett on that
