My Annual Peek at the Pros

Just in the nick of time, I made it via my “secret” route to catch a glimpse of this group of professional cyclists climbing Gibraltar Road, on stage 3 of the 2016 Amgen Tour of California.  It’s always a pleasure to get my annual peek at the pros in action!

Another Key to Longevity?

A truly special occasion falls upon “Mr. Warmth” himself on this Mother’s Day. The one-and-only Don Rickles has turned 90 years old!

Having outlived nearly all of his original pals of the stage and screen, while still remarkably pressing on with his unparalleled brand of insult comedy, “The Merchant of Venom” remains very much with us. You might say this legendary comedian owns yet another key to longevity, that is if hurling good-natured insults at all types and ethnicities of people happens to prolong life. (Let’s pretend it does.) In any case, Mr. Rickles has certainly mastered his craft, time and time again.  Thankfully he’s not finished quite yet!

Plus, he remains in good company.  After all, at least two other famous, accomplished male legends in their own rights are right behind him, both coming up on 90 very quickly themselves. Can you name them offhand?
