    Happy Birthday Joe Iliff

    Happy Birthday!

    Remember this motto to live by: "Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming 'WOO- HOO what a ride!'"

    The Geezer

    Thank you all for the birthday wishes.

    Yes, I am 30 years old. Gone are my days of being a twentysomething.

    So, does any who's been through their thirties have any advice for me?

    Happy birthday.

    As the greatest physical decline in humans occurs between 30 and 40, I suggest we ponder the wisdom of that great Tasmanian Errol Flyn when asked later in life why he was broke after such an illustruous public career:

    "Well I drank a lot so I guess I spent a lot of money on booze, I gambled a lot so I spent a lot of money on that and I knew a lot of women so I spent a lot of money on them and I guess I just wasted the rest."

    getting through the 30's was troublesome enough thanks.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    Bday advice from a 30 something

    happy birthday and if health permits get lots of rigorous exercise in the outdoors stop watching tv and read lots of books and do plenty of crossword puzzles. Visit the public library 3 times a month. Start writing/recording a journal for the generations that will follow you. If I had a journal from anybody in my family's history I would love to read it. Have good healthy regularly scheduled sex WITH SOMEONE YOU LOVE but you already know that. And food eat way more vegetables, fruits, grains way more water. Less soda, beer, hard liquor, gambling, stressing in general. Make new friends .. and so on and so forth.

    Joe, if you take this advice you won't have any friends.
