    >Q: I've heard that cardiovascular exercise can prolong life; is this true?

    >A: Your heart is only good for so many beats, and that's it... don't waste

    If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.......
    there is something you must always remember.
    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.
    Winne the Pooh - A A Milne



    A friend is a hand that is always holding yours,
    no matter how close or far apart you may be.
    A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.
    A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.

    I soooo wish this was all true!

    However, I do agree with the arriving to the grave by skidding in and having your body look like you had one h*ll of a journey.
