HOW TO STAY YOUNG
1. Throw out nonessential numbers. This includes age, weight and height. Let the doctors worry about them. That is why you pay 'them.'
2. Keep only cheerful friends. The grouches pull you down.

4. Enjoy the simple things.
5. Laugh often, long and loud. Laugh until you gasp for breath.
