        Happiness is much harder to attain if you're not healthy.

        Hazrat Inayat Khan, the Indian mystic and teacher who brought Sufism to the West, said: "The soul is happy by nature; the soul is happiness itself. It becomes unhappy when something is the matter with its vehicle, its instrument, its tool through which it experiences life. Care of the body, therefore, is the first and the most important principle of religion

            When I worked in Vegas we had a guy on our crew who said that the working slobs are trying to figure out how to get jobs to make more money, but the wealtyh people, the ones who blew a lot of $$$$$$$$ in the casinos, they have the money and they're working on............ how to live longer, they want to 'keep it going' and keep enjoying the wealth.

            A lot of truth in that. Odd thing though, a lot of them were miserable.

            Good thread Blackapple, good points about health. Health is indded a gift, and I think another, maybe the ultimate gift, would simply be dying in your sleep.

            Hearsetrax,

            Ouch! The bitter truth but Ouch!

            Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

            Lep

            There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                One summer when I was in college, I worked for a multimillionaire in Radnor as his chauffeur, gardener, and handyman. One day, I was laying a flagstone path in his front yard. It was hot and steamy, and I was stripped to the waist. I had been working hard with pick and spade; my muscles bulged and gleamed.

                I looked up and saw my employer sitting on his front steps, staring at me intensely. He was wizened and frail, tethered to an oxygen tank because of severe emphysema. He caught my glance and beckoned me.

                "I would trade all my millions in a second," he told me, "to have a body like yours and to be able to breathe again. Health is the greatest wealth, boy. Don't ever forget it."

                  I agree, living in a storage shed would be very uncomfortable.

                            And then we got those who got both. Aren't they lucky? Wink

                            I think so.
