    Drink enough water so that you must relieve yourself, thats the best way to know your properly hydrated, with the exception of travelling with an M.D.

    Rebel,<br>I am a lawn care professional and a firefighter/paramedic and all I can say is that we don't make the rules here on the sob. If you or I knew we were out of here tomorrow - what would you do different. Enjoy life and your family. Do your best and enjoy what you do. <p>If You have some insight on what comes the next minute you get in touch with me first and I want to see the holes in your hands and side. <p>We all have a purpose here and when the Good Lord above says its time - we cannot question. I have seen 95 year olds die as well as newborn babies and every one is not &quot;fair&quot; by our rules - but we don't make the rules. Good Luck.

    Rebel, sorry to hear of this sad thing. As a friend once told me when his son died, we are just here temporary, but it's still sad.<p>Eric

    Must have been a bad weekend for lawn guys. I found out today that a guy I know that was going to retire in Florida this fall was buried today. He is the one that got me interested in Dixie Choppers. He seemed very healthy the last time I saw him. We just never know when our time is up.
