My doctor is a wise old cove, he told me that getting to 50 is a tipping point as far as peoples health is concerned. if you are healthy at 50 you are more likely to grow old without needing assistance when you really are old. that means no smoking, no binge drinking, not being over weight, no sunbathing to the point of burning and doing lots of walking. sounds boring but its use it or lose it. Shrugging

Most Scots certainly start tipping over at about 50 Nod

'that means no smoking, no binge drinking, not being over weight, no sunbathing to the point of burning and doing lots of walking.'

I walk quite a lot, 1 of 5 got to be worth something Shrugging

I also walk, well weave, to Dave's fields on the way home. drunken Besides a drunken walk is healthier than a sober walk, it must be, you cover twice the distance trying to get anywhere!

I can't say his cinematography in the Hobbit, specifically BOFA exemplified his skills, though I can't really blame him either, the screen being 2/3rds greenscreen!
