Hi, another community building post.

Has any one else been enjoying the Olympics?  I know there is an antitelevision sentiment here, but I do adore the Olympics.  Does anyone have a favorite sport?

I was watching an interview with Anthony Hopkins, one of my favorite actors, and he said he watches TV while exercising in the morning.  Said he doesnt care whats on, as long as it is meaningless, just background stuff.  I can relate.

I generally watch TV while eating breakfast.  I like to watch documentaries, particularly of history.  Just background stuff.  When I tire of it, I kick back in my recliner and rest in motionless silence until I fall asleep.  Then when I wake up I go to bed and sleep some more.

What more could anyone ask ?

We have it easy.  5K years ago averge life expectancy was 20.  Now its 75. 

In the stone age, only 2% of people made it past 40. They were really old.  We get to be older a lot longer now.

More people are dying from cancer and heart disease than arrows it seems.
