    This is just sad. Can't we have someone that didn't help invent the wheel?

    He was still a good salesman and a hard worker.

    Anyway, once he had to go in the hospital for a few days. When he got back to work, he said the doctor told him to go to half days. He said that meant he would only work 12 hours a day.

    Excellent indoor plant!

    I have a fairly large one (touching the ceiling) single trunk which branches into three about 3' up.

    I have two more nice full 6 footers in pots but they're outside because of space constrictions.

It's worth remembering that Konrad Adenauer took over as chancellor of West Germany in 1949 at the age of 73 - and held that post until 1963...
    From what I understand Trump is a workaholic:

    "He's an incredible workaholic. Work is his life," he said. "What we found is that even socializing for him was solely for the publicity to build his brand. In many ways he's a lonely and solitary figure."

    Sounds like she was hitting on you, Earle!

    I've been turning work away like crazy for the past year or so - takes some getting used to. The more you do it though, the easier it gets (hint hint).....

    IMHO...............Biden is not too old.

    Key would be for him to have the "right' running mate.

    Someone who could easily be perceived as able to run the country if the situation calls for it, God forbid.

    Only an option for me with new work. I'm overloaded on what I'm already stuck with...
