    that average of '100 years' is stretching things a little far...the average is creeping up to 80 years at present...to have an average life expectancy of 100 years you will need to have people living (regularly) up to 120 years+ that is a little unrealistic in even the next 3 decades.

      Sorry, forgot to add that my figures are based on a world-wide report. Maybe it is a little different in some areas Finn

    I just looged in to say a big THANKS to the two charming ladies who offered me help with the poem.
    I was das to read these messages and see that in fact those ladies are involved in this mud slinging. ? ? ? ?
    I know it can be fun sometimes but I felt a sadness when I came in here.
    Oh and in Passing...I do not know anything about any of you..BUT comments on natural medicine recognition were made.
    I have studied in that area and 25/30 years ago it was not recognised as an accepted practice. Today it is different. Universities were not recognised if they graducated people from Natural and alternative medicines.
    I have all the respectin the world for going natural. It is far better and due to the amount to people who now think in this way, our lives have become younger and we live longer. now an average of 100 instead of 75 is expected.
    Excuse my intrusion.

    Sherrrrrrrrrrrrrrrreeeeeeeeeee/Alexa Oh, you two are back thought you'd nodded off there for a bit - thought all that high energy had run out. Nerves, no I don't have nerves - unlike yourself. Valium still working?

    I went to that university as well. I, like 'that man' (as he shall now be known, for it is he) have collected a sucession (sic.) of fake degrees and titles. I don't like to think of myself as an egocentric fraud of the highest calibre...I prefer to think of myself as a humanitarian M.B.E. 'That man' has missed a trick 'though...I managed to swing a Victoria Cross and a Nobel Peace Prize from that 'university'...ah, the beauty of home-learning coupled with self-aggrandizement....
