Hi Ron and Yuri,

Does this mean that if I was youthful, then I would also be happy?
If the bacteria from methane in my gut, does this mean that I had taken a
draught from the "fountain of cow" ?

seriously, i do not want the fountain of youth....eternal youth would be a
burden that I would not want.  You could never draw a line under anything
and say "that's it, next part".  I think that yuri took my little joke and
made it serious.  I'll remember to put a " >:-)" there next time.
