29. We gave it up thirty years ago.
Last Monday I went through a security checkpoint at an airport and was held briefly because Homeland Security wasn't sure my driver's license was valid. At first, I thought he was kidding! After a few minutes of being intensely scrutinized, the fellows finally let me through. The guy whose suspicions were aroused first, pointed to my birthdate and said, "This should read at least 1959 if not 1969." I was born in 1949. When I arrived back home there was a news story about a 100-year-old man who still runs marathons and golfs. His secret: eat good food, get plenty of rest and don't take a bunch of pills! Maintaining good health is not that complicated. Fast food from the purveyors mentioned above SHOULD BE called "food substitute." That poison is not food at all.
