Re: Ten Things You're Not Too Old to Do

Well, this is going onto the long-term goals list. Thanks, Spanky!

But ye gods-- that should read "Sample Haggis-- no more than once".

Even my Scots ancestors wouldn't argue with eating a nice steak or fish instead of that... stuff.

I'll sample haggis any number of times... if I never have to do #1! I don't care what they can coax my ageing equipment into doing these days -- there's a REASON mother nature doesn't let us girls do that forever.

And god bless her!

Here's one I liked-"As for the biological clock of men, many fertility experts think there's no age limit."

The age limit for men is that unless we are very rich, we get too old and ugly to attract a woman young enough to have that baby for us.

Spanky,

Come back to us man. I mean, just because you're not too old to have another baby doesn't mean I'd consider it. Father's Day is just around the corner, and the only surprise I want is lasagna.

Re: Ten Things You're Not Too Old to Do

I just starred in my 2nd movie "Stranger than fiction" with Dustin Hoffman, Will Ferrel and Queen Latifah

When you see the bus scene, look for a 6'3" overweight white man with Oakley Blades with a black backpack and green cargo pants.

I noticed that every person associated with the filming had a headset with a flexible microphone. I went home got my headset and tried to blend in. Got free lunch.

WooooHooooo

Everybody needs their 15 minutes of fame.* *Did you get your full allotment yet?

Back when I had my own company, I would use various guerilla tactics to get free publicity.* *I got several magazine articles, a couple of newspaper articles, and one TV interview.* *I figure I got my 15 minutes worth.

Around the time I was ready to retire, I tried to come up with a few things I thought it was important for *everybody* to do.* *You know, milestones in humanity that would be a shame not to participate in to a pretty full extent.

A few areas I'm still weak in include agriculture (I need to start a garden, at least), astronomy, geography, music composition and playing, flight, and architecture/construction.

Any of those with the enquirer, star or ripleys believe it or not?

Any where you were hanging from a bungee cord in your skivvies with "Golden Palace" written on your torso and when the cameras came in you screamed out the name of your company?

I'm always coming up with things like that... I've got the gardening, music and architecture covered, but I'd really love to get my pilot's license, study marine biology, learn about geology...* I need to hurry up and retire.*
