live longer, duct tape,

from yahoo.com
five ways to live longer

live higher up-there is a lower incidence of heart disease from
living at higher altitudes
may be from the higher vitamin d levels from the higher uv exposure

lasting relationships-either from personal ones or community ones
social interactions are important especially as you get older

brush your teeth and floss-well guess the dentist, hygienist and
mom were making a good recommendation
the thinking is that the oral germs can contribute to plaque formation
in the arteries-the risk is increased 70% in one study

breathing good air-thats obvious
walking or running or biking on roads and highways with traffic are
not as healthy as walking on trails away from the traffic
guess youre screwed if you live in a big city with bad pollution

accept your age-ok ive done that especially in the am when i get
up after working outside all day the day before
except i then feel ten years older

3 of 5 is not bad i guess
ok i accept my age
ive been married for almost 35 years
i breathe good air as i live in the country

the other two-one i know better and the other i cant do
anything about

a reader sent me this story about her teenage daughter
who wanted some fingernail polish to remove the polish off her
her daughter said well if i cant get any nail polish remover ill just
put duct tape on them and that will get the polish off

new one to me
will add it to my lengthy duct tape list

  4. I once sat behind a car at a stop light that, other than the windows, was COMPLETELY covered in duck tape! Now that's dedication.
