  1. I am a rural family doc. I’ve had a woman in her 90s on no meds who chopped wood daily and a man in his 90s still haying every summer. Everyone over 90 is stubborn…. as Mae West said, “Getting old ain’t for sissies.”

  2. I agree with floridaborne. Living to 100 should be a personal decision. Neither science, government or religion should be able to make that choice. IMO

  3. This is a society that values youth. After the age of 35, you begin to fade into the background. Then, around 50, things start to break down, you’re living in pain and you can’t take a picture that’s worth a D@#^ without serious airbrushing. Meditation and yoga are great, and the advice about retiring is absolutely TRUE. But living to 100 is either a blessing or a curse — depending upon whether you really want to go there or not.
