I'm still alive - and BRONZE, too : )

<t>Thanks guys, for all the congrats - I appreciate that. The highlight of my dentist appointment was, of course, telling him I had quit smoking and that I expected a change to be made on my chart - he was very enthusiastic about changing it, I must say. He said he was "proud of me and proud for me"...

"How did we survive back then?"

<t>Wonderful article - thank you for bringing this up. Since the title is "How did we survive back then?", I don't think it will be off-topic for me to comment on how many memories came flooding back to me of my childhood. <br/> I remember riding in the backseat of my parent's car, and their smoke (...
