Wrapping Up 2016

All in fun, there is always a wrap up of the year’s highlights, this is what comes to mind, feel free to add to the list:

This thread made me realize my father died when he was 6 years older than I am now. Geez. I've never smoked, am in relatively decent health and I have had more health issues through this age than my dad did up to the same age. Guess it's time to start partying like there's no tomorrow. 

2016 was a very stable audio year for me. No component changes- at all!. I said it a year ago "I'm done" and I meant it! Found other things to spend $ on. 
Oh, I’m fine jetter, one of the healthiest people I know. I take no credit for that, other than having observed the old expression about doing everything in moderation, nothing to excess. I owe my health to genetics, my Dad passing his healthy gene’s onto me. My sisters aren’t as fortunate, getting my Mom’s. I don’t have high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or diabetes. I’m not an alcoholic or drug addict, and have never smoked. My hair is turning salt-and-pepper gray, but I still have it (and my teeth)! Other than needing to lose 15-20 pounds, I can’t complain.
I remember Redd Foxx's line about cutting pork out of his diet:  S**t, I don't want to be lyin' in that hospital dyin' of NOTHIN'!

I didn't take his advice, I'm living ultra-clean.  And lean.

I'm scared to ask, has anyone heard anything from Schubert?  I don't see any posts since early May...
bdp24, so good to hear.  May our good fortune and that of our friends continue into the new year!
Excessive weight is a HUGE problem in the USA, an epidemic even. I don't know about the rest of the world (except Asia, perhaps because of their leaner diet?), but it's even worse up here in the Northwest than it is in S. California, I have discovered since moving here. It causes lots of health issues, many of which both my obese sisters suffer from. They take pills for everything, I take none.
