What a grand title for a blog that’s about getting old.  Oh, and by the way, I skipped a few Happy New Years, so let me just say I hope your 2014 and 2015 were amazing in their entirety as well as the smallest detail.  Happy 2016!  Hasn’t the new Star Wars renewed your faith in the franchise?  Now, death…..

You know how it is, you’re happily going about your business, seeing the absurd when everyone else only sees the mundane, aware that your cells are constantly doing their stuff and dividing away…….. and then you remember……. those blasted telomeres just keep getting shorter and shorter.  Just stay the same length damn you and we may be able to live forever (further research required to confirm).

This year I have a special birthday, it’s not the commencement of a new decade, but it’s the year I shall be the embodiment of the meaning of life, the universe, and everything.  You know what I mean.  And anyway, people celebrate the beginning of a new decade in the year they complete the previous one, but let’s not get me started on everyone celebrating the new millennium on the wrong year… again… (Again that I go on about it, not that I know people who have celebrated two millennia.)

It doesn’t matter if you’re 42 or early-mid-late 50s or even older (if that’s possible) the time for living is now.  Get out there, enjoy life, enjoy the universe, enjoy everything!


Silly penguin, 2001 was the start of the new millennium!

Early late mid 50s is nothing to sneeze about... You never know when a new horizon is just over the horizon.........
