According to some dude called Deepak Chopra:

"The body at peace is stronger than the body at war. When you can free yourself of the random, uncontrollable stress that is always present, your body will start to be at peace.

Modern medicine has already discovered that love increases the human immune response. An experimenter who showed random subjects a movie of Mother Teresa found that their immune systems responded immediately. The rise of an immunoglobulin called IGA proved that exposure to love actually increased the body’s defenses. This happened regardless of whether the subjects approved of Mother Teresa or not."

Deepak goes on to say:

"People who feel loved live longer; have fewer colds, lower blood pressure, and lower cancer rates; and have fewer heart attacks. Widowers who lose a spouse and begin to feel unloved and lonely suffer higher rates of all these afflictions, as well as a shorter life span.

You cannot use stress, in the form of constant reminders about terror, to create peace in the body. The mechanisms simply aren’t there."

So............... drink a lot AND smoke as much as you like, but FEEL THE LURVE!

Bolton said it well ->

Birds fly, they don't think twice
They simply spread their wings
The sun shines, it don't ask why
Or what the whole thing means

The same applies to you and I
We never question that
So good, it's just understood
Ain't no conjecture
Just a matter of fact

::
Love is a wonderful thing
Make ya smile through the pouring rain
Love is a wonderful thing
I'll say it again and again
Turn your world into one sweet dream
Take your heart and make it sing
Love, love is a wonderful thing

See you all laterwave

My theory is that a woman on her own can be filled with the memories of love to sustain her -

a man is more likely to be filled with regret and unable to love himself and cope with being alone as well as a woman........ older people alive today have also come from a generation where men did little in the house; doing something as complicated as boiling an egg is a bit hard for an old gentleman confronted with a lonely existence missing the love of his life beside himto make it all worthwhile.

Conrad..it's climate change...don't fall for the global warming nonsense...the world has been getting colder...

Nothing to do with the thread..but an atheist basically reckons hes's born and then dies..period.So what is he dies in a forest and 'helps' a tree grow. Now a woodcutter comes along and cuts down the tree and makes paper from the wood shavings. He sells the paper to a bloke who prints a bible with it..I guess the atheist is snookered..dunno ..Just thought i'd ask

The ice caps aren't that old..The last 'ice age ' was 20,000 years or so ago..we are due one(ice age). The ice melts, raising sea levels and making big storms and in the process induces the odd volcano to explode..Throwing loads of dust about, blocking out the sun...And hi presto ice age.. Then the sun whacks out a couple of solar flares, thaws the earth and mother nature starts all over...Don't worry smoky it wont happen in your grandkids life...Maybe theres...
