    I don't normally shout about it, in fact I tend to stay low key as today is my birthday which is always tinged with sadness because my mother died the day before my birthday 23 years ago, so really very little to celebrate.

    However, I am taking a slightly different position this year.

    My Great great Grandfather, Great Grandfather, Grandfather and Uncle on my Mothers side all died aged 61 with the same heart condition I have, namely Dilated Cardio Myopathy or heart failure.

    Today that monkey is off the families back as I have attained the milestone age of 62. It also means that I am the senior and eldest member of the family which is not an accolade I welcome so much, but the personal sense of achievement is there non the less :)

    Well done!
    For the record I had my first heart attack over 20 years ago and I was recently turned down by a medical research project after they got to look at my records for being too well.
    I think it's the effects of motorcycles on exercise and getting out and about...

    A Sword of Damocles !

    That must have been a bit nerve racking to say the least !
