"I find that aches and pains do tend to get in the way of work and fun - but mostly with respect to my knees. The knees in turn causeme to forget everything I ever learned about lifting - which in turn strains the back. Which in turn causes me to remember most of what I learned about lifting - which then acts on the knees. I think that is what folks refer to as the "circle of life". - Howie

When I got painful arthritis and my backs and hips gave out on me in my mid 40's is when my mortality really hit home to me. Before that I never gave it much thought and it was always something distant and far off. I realized just how fragile I was and I started thinking about dying. That was also about the time I learned about the internet and we got a computer and I started reading stories about near death experiences, death bed visions, and the holographic universe theory. I found it comforting and it gave me hope.
