    How Many Years Do You Have Left?

    HOW MANY YEARS DO YOU HAVE LEFT ?






    .
    Now this is interesting, give it a try....

    How long will you live?

    This is a calculator that estimates your life expectancy.

    It was developed by Northwestern Mutual Life. It's interesting that there
    are only 13 questions.

    Yet, they can predict how long you're likely to live.

    -watch your age in the upper right corner!
    Kinda fun to watch your age go up and down as you answer the questions
    I quilt, therefore I am.

    I'm not falling for this again. Last similar one I did (Death Date) had me already dead for about the last 10 months!

    I have a long time left. Maybe I can get my sewing room clean now and get started on those projects I've neglected. haha

    Mine was 87! Not too bad - that means I have quite a few years left to get my UFO's done.

    I heard somewhere that the first person likely to live to age 150 years, will be born in 2013.

    Mine is 95 so maybe I can get caught up with some of my many many projects. But on the other hand I am pretty boreing, dont smoke, dont drink and have regular check-ups.

    Wow, I did mine and DH. We both hit over 100. I never really thought about it reality wise. That means we have to put enough money in retirement to last 45+ years. That's half our lives in retirement so we better have an adjustable income. Scary to think to outlive your money.
    Got fabric?

    Oh no. I ask myself this everyday. Took the test and it said 99. Crap. Grandmothers lived to 101 and 95. However aunts kicked at 87, 84, 92 (less than gram) and mother at 79 "...but she smoked " Interesting how the aunts under-lived grandma...I think it is because of the chemicals in our food these days. Final thoughts: support alzheimer's research.

    Good Gosh Me Either! But I have plenty of fabric to get me to 92!! Do I start planning for the next 38 years? Suppose I should stop fretting about who's going to get what and when.

    OOps-it was 97. Better get those glasses on. Got a few years taken off for stress.
