92. Sounds about right.

Mom lived to 94, Dad to 80.

I am so much more like mom.

You don't have to put your e-mail. Just click on the x and close that box so you can see your info behind it.

I got 92. My MIL is 90 and I am not at all sure I want to live that long.

Unfortunately this thing doesn't take into account that anybody can discover cancer and be gone in a year or two. My health may be "good" today and then I could be diagnosed with something next week. We have had 3 friends in their mid 60's all die unexpectedly in the last 6 months. One in a motorcycle accident, one from cardiac arrest from an undiagnosed heart condition, and one in a freak accident at the go-cart track (I witnessed that one) due to an undiagnosed ossification of the spine in which a minor collision, that should have done zero physical damage, instead nearly severed his spinal cord.

I am suprised they don't ask about family history. Only 2 in my family lived over 60 so far. Not kidding.
