Dear Fellow Members,

     My oldest brother, Michael – is the type of guy – who while on a cruise – will turn to me and say, “Don’t get used to it – because actuarially speaking (based on a male born in 1958) you only have 5,475 days to live and that’s allowing for Leap Years.” Always the optimist, he then says, “But just think…you have enough money to live this type of lifestyle forever [followed by a pregnant pause] assuming you die tomorrow…early!”

   “Hmmm,” I would think as I sipped my Diet Pepsi – “based on his estimates – that leaves me only 165 more opportunities to attend Chamber Luncheons.”
