    For all you people in their 40's

    [size=14pt]Middle-age is truly depressing, study finds[/size]
    http://www.reuters.com/article/healthNews/idUSL2957448420080129?feedType=RSS&feedName=health News&rpc=22&sp=true
    Middle age is truly miserable, according to a study using data from 80 countries showing that depression is most common among men and women in their forties.

    The British and U.S. researchers found that happiness for people ranging from Albania to Zimbabwe follows a U-shaped curve where life begins cheerful before turning tough during middle age and then returning to the joys of youth in the golden years...

    I chuckle uproariously at this article/old people while examining the sheer beauty of my 6-pack abdominals formed from absolutely no effort.

    O to be young.

    Singer, I'm sorry to hear about the bad news you received today but I'm glad to hear that Jing Jing is alright. This sounds like such an incredibly frustrating process that you have been going through. I hope that everything can be resolved soon, that she'll be here shortly, and this mess will become a distant memory.
    Hang in there!

    Yeah, most of us self medicate.
    I have graduated from my friends Jim Beam and Jack Daniels to a Captain, Morgan that is ... 45, and a left total hip replacement surgery; in case you were wondering, getting old sucks...but it's better than the alternative.

    Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent
