superkraut, I have a family tree going back to 1650 and many of my relatives lived as long as 80+ so I don’t doubt that in the Middle Ages folk lived to 60+.

Louis Michael Durocher, Do you realize that "waist" is that part of the body where one places a belt? Waste, on the other hand, is either garbage or "a total waste of time", is what you actually meant to say, right??
