The Blue Zones...
About 14 years ago I started talking about living to age 100 in my business literature and on my website for my business. To tell you the truth, most people thought I was crazy! Today I see it being talked about everywhere, so maybe I wasn’t so crazy after all! The average life expectancy in the United States is now 78.69 years of age as compared to 50 years of age in the early 1900s, and it doesn’t surprise me to hear about people who are still up and around and playing golf at 98 years of age! So, I think that we all need to start thinking about longevity and being as active and healthy as we possibly can well into our 90s and 100s. Over the years I have spent quite a bit of time researching how to live the healthiest life possible as we age and one of my favorite sites is Blue Zones.
Dan Buettner, Blue Zones founder, is a National Geographic Fellow and multiple New York Times bestselling author. He has discovered five places in the world – dubbed “Blue Zones” – where people live the longest, and are healthiest: Okinawa, Japan; Sardinia, Italy; Nicoya, Costa Rica; Ikaria, Greece, and Loma Linda, California.
Visit the Blue Zones site www.bluezones.com to learn more about what they are and how the term Blue Zones originated, as well as to get access to the Blue Zones meal planner, Longevity secrets and great research and articles on living longer, healthier and happier well into your 100s!

I like my aura to be brilliant and crisp. I am not sure if anyone will be able to understand that. When I buy someone a cigarette, I don't just give one stick or one pack, I give a whole rim. I am not sure why I do that. I am not desperately trying to be a different, I am just naturally different. It pains me when I am overly enclosed with simple things. I don't like being forced to be simple just because I am around stingy people. I hate when people have the wrong notion that I actually need them.
