    My latest event has me thinking a lot about preparing for that final day. Also has me thinking I have a lot left I want to do in what time I have left.

    I hope when they tell me where I'm going to spend eternity, it sounds like this: "Welcome to Oshkosh."

    Zeldman,

    Most positive statement in the thread. Gitter done while you have the time. My plan is to cook my way into oblivion while enjoying the foods I love. Danged if I'm going to be intimated by cholesterol.

    I was just informed...

    Norm passed away a couple of days ago.

    Bummer...big time bummer. Norm and I go back at least 15 years. We had our differences but I always liked the old fart.

    Rest In Peace, Norm. :(

    Probably should get his own thread?
    Some might miss buried in here.

    Norm chain smoked Winstons and had a horrible diet. I think he was pushing 80. Lasted longer than many of us who knew him thought he would.

    He was one of the good guys.

    BTW...Norm was very hard of hearing and refused to wear hearing aids so one of his main pleasures were these online pilots' forums (he was also a train geek).

    He was found dead at his computer.

    :(

    Do it. Dietary cholesterol isn’t the Big Bad Wolf it was formerly believed to be. All things in moderation, young man.

    Genetics probably plays the biggest role in longevity, but you can control some things... R.I.P. Norman. He obviously had good genes.

    I liked the fundamentals of his philosophy. Live life doing the things that bring you happiness.

    He will be missed!

    I wish I could quote this in his proper thread, but living a full life, happy to its fullest extent, then keeling over, is the way to go, and those are good genes. Being lucid and happy to the end is priceless.

    As @mscard88 suggested, let's honor Norm in the thread made for him specifically.

    @Bill Jennings made a good point regarding the black ribbon. I'll talk to the other MC members about this.

    We've gone ahead and marked Ben and Norm as "Gone West". You'll see a ribbon on any of their posts that says it, or in their profile as well if you go there.
