A big earthquake with the strength of 8.1 on the Richter Scale has hit Pakistan.

Two million Pakistanis have died and over a million are injured.

The country is totally ruined and the government doesn't know where to start with providing help to rebuild.

The rest of the world is in shock.

The USA is sending troops to help.

Saudi Arabia is sending oil.

Latin American countries are sending supplies.

New Zealand is sending sheep, cattle and food crops.

The Asian continents are sending labor to assist in rebuilding infrastructure.

Australia is sending medical teams and supplies.

Britain, not to be outdone, is sending two million Pakistanis as replacements...

God Bless British generosity.

   Will YOU Live to see 80?
I recently picked a new primary care doctor. After two visits and exhaustive Lab tests, he said I was doing 'fairly well' for my age. (I just turned 65.)
A little concerned about that comment, I couldn't resist asking him,
'Do you think I'll live to be 80?'
He asked,
'Do you smoke tobacco, or drink beer or wine, indulge in chocolate or coffee?'
'Oh no,' I replied. 'I'm not doing drugs, either!'
Then he asked,
'Do you eat rib-eye steaks and barbecued ribs?
'I said,
'Not much.... my former doctor said that all red meat is very unhealthy!'
'Do you spend a lot of time in the sun, like playing golf, sailing, hiking, or bicycling?'
'No, I don't,' I said.
He asked,
'Do you gamble, drive fast cars, or have a lot of sex?'
'No,' I said.
He looked at me and said...

'Then, why do you even give a Damn ?
