live longer, the march, did it

here are things you can do to live longer
some dont need explaining

do yoga
go to the dentist
move to the country-my wife she and i can guarantee this helps
be checked for diabetes
grope yourself-no thats not a sexual suggestion but do self
          breast exam and self testicular exams
keep your brain active
walk-cost is zero for this gym membership, fresh air is good for you
stay married and youll live longer-well sometimes it just cant happen
be optimistic-know thats a tough one right now
get good sleep-dont take aricept if you want this one
limit portions-we eat too much
mediterranean diet-fruits, veggies, nuts, fish, olive oil, etc
get a pet-maybe not a python since they eat deer in florida
dont bring work home with you-a rule i followed the last years
          of my practice
strong relationship with your mom
drink red wine with moderation
control your blood pressure
protect your skin from the sun
get a good nights sleep

dang i feel better after writing and rereading this
i do all of these except for the good nights sleep which is affected
by the aricept-its a trade off im willing to make
im retired so i definitely dont take work home with me
maybe thats why i feel so laid back all the time

live longer its this easy

today in oakland the occupy oakland march will happen
it will be a significant one
can it be done without violence
there are varied group of people involved
          school kids, school teachers, public employees, retired
          veterans, iraq/afghanistan war veterans, union workers,
          retired people, aarp types, collegestudents and other
          normal people
the whole nation is watching this one as it may be a good thing today
for the nation or it could turn into a bad thing for the nation
lets hope that everyone stays peaceful

cant wait for the campaigning next year
cant wait to see the tea partiers and the occupiers at the
campaign events together making sure the politicians know how
both sides feel
do it to both parties please as they both deserve it

this is the way our democracy works
just do it peacefully please

well i did it
i am no longer banking at a megabank
dang that feels so good
i now have all my banking stuff at a local credit union
even dave ramsey uses a credit union for his banking
if its good enough for him its good enough for me
he did it before it was cool to do it

also dont forget your local and state banks as they are
usually not in the same class as the megabanks

i feel like i did when i quit smoking years ago
and it feels good
