It's been a bit of a week or two for celebrity deaths; hopefully there won't be any more (relative) youngsters leaving us any time soon. It's funny how we look at people dying aged around 70 and think to ourselves that we'd be quite disappointed if we died that early (I do at least!). Only a few score years ago 70 would have been seen as positively ancient even in Britain; we're still felled early by things like cancer of course but kids born now are looking at average life expectancies approaching 100 years, all that time, how wonderful.

Yes, you are right I am hoping for 120 at least - only another 47 years to go ;)

HV, good luck with that! I think 120 might be pushing it for old duffers like us, the rot has probably already set in :)
