"Life is unpredictable but in the end is right"--Green Day from Good Riddence

The best you can do is, look at your own health, family tree, remember that medicine is making advances, and take your best guess.

My only example is my Granny. When she turned 80, the family through a big birthday party. A couple years ago, we through one at 90. To a certain extent, I'm already planning one for 100. But her leason is not in longevity, but in enjoying the ride. She didn't have much materially, but spiritually and socially, she had millions. That's what our "balance" should be, creating and doing outside of ourselves.

"I hope you had the time of your life".
