One of my "End of Life" management plans (besides what I call the .38 Caliber Cure) is, after I get the diagnosis and prognosis, go home and start mowing the lawn at the hottest part of the day, or shoveling snow depending on what's in season. Of course this would require that I be either very old or very frail at the time.

If I had been Ronald Reagan I would have spent the last several good months of my life out on the North 40 chopping wood 8 g/d hours a day till I dropped dead.

"That's almost exactly what happened to tenor Franco Bonisolli at 65. Just after dinner one night...whamo!

Bing Crosby too. He was playing golf in Spain with the Spanish equivalents of Tiger Woods and Jack Nicklaus and just keeled face down at 74." - FCorelli

Lucky bastards!
