I copied this from a FB post, but have received it via email several times. Enjoy!
I love this guy and his philosophy
Q: Doctor, I've heard that cardiovascular exercise can prolong life. Is this true?
A: Heart only good for so many beats, and that it... Don't waste on exercise. Everything wear out eventually. Speeding up heart not make you live longer; it like saying you extend life of car by driving faster. Want to live longer? Take nap.
Q: Should I reduce my alcohol intake?
A: Oh no. Wine made from fruit. Brandy distilled wine, that mean they take water out of fruity bit so you get even more of goodness that way. Beer also made of grain. Bottom up!
Q: How can I calculate my body/fat ratio?
A: Well, if you have body and you have fat, your ratio one to one. If you have two body, your ratio two to one.
Q: What are some of the advantages of participating in a regular exercise program?
A: Can't think of single one, sorry. My philosophy: No pain...good!
Q: Aren't fried foods bad for you?
A: YOU NOT LISTENING! Food fried in vegetable oil. How getting more vegetable be bad?
Q : Will sit-ups help prevent me from getting a little soft around the middle?
A: Oh no! When you exercise muscle, it get bigger. You should only be doing sit-up if you want bigger stomach.
Q: Is chocolate bad for me?
A: You crazy?!? HEL-LO-O!! Cocoa bean! Another vegetable! It best feel-good food around!
Q: Is swimming good for your figure?
A: If swimming good for figure, explain whale to me.
Q: Is getting in shape important for my lifestyle?
A: Hey! 'Round' is shape!
Well... I hope this has cleared up any misconceptions you may have had about food and diets.
Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways - Chardonnay in one hand - chocolate in the other - body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO-HOO, what a ride!!"
For those of you who watch what you eat, here's the final word on nutrition and health. It's a relief to know the truth after all those conflicting nutritional studies.
1. The Japanese eat very little fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.
2. The Mexicans eat a lot of fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.
3. The Chinese drink very little red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.
4. The Italians drink a lot of red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans...
5. The Germans drink a lot of beer and eat lots of sausages and fats and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.
CONCLUSION: Eat and drink what you like. Speaking English is apparently what kills you.

Another deluge has begun...it is coming in waves today.
Big weather changes are happening here. We've had 2 1/2 inches of rain over the last two days. This morning, another deluge began..and we are to be wet all day..it is coming in waves. For the last few days, it has been unseasonably warm for TN in January. 70 and 72 degrees. Today this wet stuff will also bring plummeting temps and flash flood warnings all day. Tomorrow...MORE rain, but this time very cold temps....hopefully above freezing during the day..(have forgotten the details they are talking more about today than coming up).
Front part of the house is in the mid sixties, so I went and did my T-tapp...and did, I think, 5 flights of stairs. I simply MUST increase my exercise and its intensity to work my blood sugars into submission! Am going to cool down..and then go do the stairs some more.
Between dancing , stairs , T-Tapp (no exactly right icon for this one!) and when I add it back in, Leslie Sansone ...I AM getting exercise in and am seeing changes. I am gradually passing on some of my larger size clothing...still in shock over realizing I have been wearing the wrong size clothing. My midriff is still my biggest issue...Gotta get that whittled down. Frankly, I don't care near as much about the pounds I want off as I do about getting the blood sugars back down. I know I can do it...but I MUST stay more focused.

Got this in an email today. Wish I could figure out how to share the cute illustrations that came with it.
Stay Young With Me!!
We all need to read this one over and over until it becomes part of who we are!
HOW TO STAY YOUNG
Try everything twice. On Madams tombstone (of
Whelan's and Madam) she said she wanted this epitaph: Tried everything twice...loved it both times!
Keep only cheerful friends. The grouches pull you down.
Keep learning: Learn more about the computer, crafts, gardening, whatever. Never let the brain get idle. 'An idle mind is the devil's workshop.' And the devil's name is Alzheimer's!
Enjoy the simple things.
Laugh often, long and loud. Laugh until you gasp for breath. And if you have a friend who makes you laugh, spend lots and lots of time with HIM/HER.
The tears happen: Endure, grieve, and move on. The only person who is with us our entire life is ourselves. LIVE while you are alive.
Surround yourself with what you love: Whether it's family, pets, keepsakes, music, plants, hobbies, whatever. Your home is your refuge.
Cherish your health: If it is good, preserve it. If it is unstable, improve it. If it is beyond what you can improve, get help.
Don't take guilt trips. Take a trip to the mall, even to the next county, to a foreign country, but NOT to where the
Tell the people you love that you love them at every opportunity. I love you, my special friend.
Forgive now those who made you cry. You might not get a second time.
if you don't send this to at least 4 people - who cares?
But do share this with someone.
Lost time can never be found.
Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.
