zegon dear i do believe in the afterlife ,what i really mean't to say is that life as we know it now and the ppl in our life now, wont be part of the afterlife, nor the things we cherish here, our relationships and material possessions are to be enjoyed in this life,,,what God has instore for us remains unknown,,,judgement day will pass and fate will be revealed. :shock:



Everyone wants to go to heaven,yet no one wants to die :(

Due to NANO Technology, the globalists plan to live forever and they have no plans to share the
technology with the masses.

Other news:

One scientists claims the head can be detached and then mounted to a robot.

Other news:

Another story where a scientists will be able to bring back the dead.

End up in the heaven ??... do not know if i want that.

In hell, it is assumed overpopulated by now, so there are probably most likely to become unemployed and then i can play Xbox whole day long.

In the heaven it's supposed lack of people, so then it becomes just a lot of overtime and stress.

Bit lazy i suppose i am, after all.

zegon are you religious at all? what do you believe will happen to us once we all die? :roll:



i believe everything in life,down to the last atom or cell on this planet has a purpose,a reason for being here.

everything in your home has a purpose,the bed,the tv,your xbox,nothing is created for nothing,
everything has been created by someone and for a reason and that includes us,the most superior of all creations.

I do not think that the bad repainting of my bedroom have a purpose, wonder what that is, then. :P

No, i'm probably not directly religious of me, is not directly brought up so by my parents,

yes that too has purpose,,you initially had the intent of a makeover,to make it look better,or old paint was peeling or didnt look nice,so you obviously had a reason for doing it.

zegon dear every action has a reason behind it and a reaction,directly or indirectly,which many of us are unaware of at the time.

sorry to get so philosophical with you but i think we do have something in common,you are mature and understanding,i am younger and cheekier :D

I'm not yet 80 and have a way to go to reach that milestone but can tell you what my sister does at age 80. She runs her 2 women's boutique stores, is active in church, bakes cakes for people who are ill, cleans her home, goes on gambling trips and visits friends in a nursing home. She's sort of a force to be reckoned with.

Ya, times have changed a lot from the old days, in many ways.
They say people live longer today, I am not so sure about that.

However, we have eliminated many diseases over the years and
have developed many life saving techniques not to mention all
the advances in health.

My grandfather lived to be in his 90's. He was still rather spry
and didn't really feel sick when he went to the emergency room.
When I visited him in the critical care, same day he passed
away....he said 'I guess they think I'm going to die PRAISE THE
LORD I'M GOING HOME' and just yelled that out. All the nurses
turned and stared. :lol: Some hours later, he went home...
died peacefully.

Anyway, when you're young, you don't really think so much about
ever getting old. When you're a kid you can't wait til you're 16. Then
when your 16 you can't wait til you're 18 and then 21 and then 25
and then you kind of wish you were 21 again and the next thing you
know you are 35 wishing you were 27. Turn around later and you
are 45 wondering why you weren't satisfied with being 35. Then
when you turn 50 you think all hay day has broken loose and know
that 45 wasn't so bad after all. Then one day you wake up to your
60th birthday and talk about an eye opener....that is an eye opener.
At 60 you start seeing weird things happening to your body....I mean
like really weird stuff. :lol:

i think valerie what is most important in any age particularly old age is your health.
Like you said in your previous post,as long as you are healthy and active and can do things and don't need relying on anyone is really important.

Even babies a couple of hrs after they are born can die of some defect,an 18 year old can suddenly die,death can happen in any age and for any reason .


Back in the Uk,my work involved Nursing homes ,i used to plan special diets for patients,you can say i am kinda dietician/nutrionalist and i have met people well into their 90's and over 100 who are mentally very sharp but physically weak.
Now these people are nearing their end days but their kids,grandsons even some gr8 grankids have all perished. :(


Good health is really a blessing and like i mentioned in a previous post,looking after yourself now will no doubt reflect in later life.
Another thing ,staying happy is crucial too,depression is a killer too :roll:

died peacefully.:

At the age of 92, my father called me and said he was experiencing heartburn and needed some Tums. I took him to his doctor who listened to his heart and immediately put him in Intensive Care. He had not experienced heartburn, it was a heart attack. When doctors informed him he had had a fatal heart attack and would not be returning home, he said, "Like hell I'm not", jumped out of bed and attempted to get dressed. We managed to convince him to stay awhile longer just so doctors could "monitor him". He was gone within 24 hours, died peacefully and I held his hand as he passed. Doctors said he had a powerful heart to have carried him so far. He worked in the Ozarks as a young man tilling fields behind a mule. Later, he supported a wife and 4 kids during the depression, sometimes working on the low paying, back breaking government jobs.

I hope I'm fortunate enough to go as he did - after a life courageously lived, with little discomfort and a fighting spirit to the very end.

Who said no one wants to die? I want to die, I'd love to die everyday. That's a beautiful experience to die everyday & be born again each day. :D :D I'm not talking about sleep.

I've just been asked to take a pensioners group on the three peaks this summer.

It's surprisingly arduous, it includes crossing bogs, and even climbing up a waterfall - sometimes with the water actually flowing. I've done it several times, but always alone. I don't know anybody fit enough to do it - until being asked to lead the pensioners. They're not even asking me to go for the sake of having somebody relatively young and healthy, they're asking me because it can be surprisingly difficult to navigate your first time round.

All your posts are quite touching for different reasons. I'm 58 and I've been disabled for the last 25 years. I don't get around as well as I did for the first 33 years of my life so I've put weight on but I plan on being around for as many years as possible. Life is a precious gift and should be appreciated. Don't let depression get you down. No pun intended. Get up. Appreciate what you have. Make the best of it. Thank God and get on with living! Believe me I could sit around feeling sorry for myself because of being in a chair for the last 25 years but.....why? All I'm saying is we all have someone we can emulate. Someone who can challenge us to get out of bed every day. Someone to make us want to live. Mine is my Grandpa. He passed 32 years ago but I still feel him pushing me on. Know what I mean? ;)

You should do the one in Tennessee. Usually only one makes it. A couple of years ago, two made it.

Good luck.
