family tree says males rarely make 70, females get into their 80s

Hope you end up like a friend of mine. He took a 10 year sabatical from his business when he was 50 because the men in his family tended to die before 60. Good thing he had plenty of money because he's still going strong in his mid 70's.


next year, i'll have out-lived my dad and both granddads ..

by my calculations i have money to last till 84 ..hoping i'm at least a little conservative <g>
