I have posted in this thread because I didn't know where to...

I would like to wish everyone from this community a 2007 with much Health and lots of Money.
Money doesn't give us Health but it helps a lot.

Health is essential. Without it we are done. We feel like doing nothing.

So, Health and Money - in this sequence - for everyone !![/span]

You're too young may be ...
How old are you anyway ?
Only a young person can think the way you do. I think.

thank you for the good wishes. Health, yes, what a neat thing to have. It's first and foremost.

Money. free money. If someone would like to give me a pile of money for nothing I will be very happy. Otherwise, I'll continue to work too much for not nearly enough for the effort, but enough to afford me some pleasures, if modest ones. Which means, I'm immensely wealthy, if taken on a world scale.

You all have great weekends! The New Year will be fascinating, as always.

I tend to think that having lots of money must be a terrible burden, at least for conscientious people. It's generally rich peole who screw up the environment. Whether they invest their money in corporations that are directly responsible for spewing carbon mon/dioxide into the atmosphere, or leave their money with a bank that in turn invests their money in the same sorts of environment-destroying industries, is irrelevant. The net effect is the same.

Bill Gates is doing a fine thing with his surplus money, but making sure that the money is spent wisely and efficiently must be a great responsibility.

The number of people who dream about great wealth, only to have their lives destroyed when they win the lottery, must be great.

Health is by far the more important.

Peacefull new year to everyone, as unfortunately for some of us "peace" may be directly related to "health"...

That's seriously gloomy Ray, I suppose the seasonal changes are creeping up on you.

Health and Happiness to all in 2007.

Too bad for you Ray that the glass is half empty.  Here's a solution instead of complaining about rich folks who are almost all evil - try creating your own wealth so that you can then bring more good to folks and the environment.  Because please, all that dark side garbage is just that. It all comes down to the attitude you bring to the table.

I think we'll need a bit more than a happy attitude at the table, old chap. You must have noticed the occasional report of greenhouse warming and the drastic consequences that are in store for all of us if we don't reduce our consumption and change the economic paradigm that drives us to ever increasing productivity gains.

My glass is not half empty by any means. I'm one of the lucky people and I live in a lucky country. I have the economic means to support an expensive hobby and to support myself in reasonable comfort into my old age. But I'm also a realist.

Nevertheless, I wish you all the health and happiness you can get   .

It's a burden I'd be willing to shoulder I think.   Thanks to all who replied before me to this missive of holiday cheer before I could, thus sparing me the effort. One hardly knows where to begin refuting it, knowing that this ideology is generally impervious to fact and logic. What I most wish for is Econ 101 for everyone.

In Ray's honor I will, however, as New Year's resolutions for 2007, cease all personal exhalation of carbon dioxide; and vow to help as many of my fellow humans as possible by stashing my huge stash of Halliburton-stock-options cash in my king-sized mattress (made, I'm proud to say, by local sweatshop labor) rather than investing it in one of those nefarious banks. Don't want that capital in the hands of some unwashed entrepreneur with the next great idea. In this way I will promote the impoverishment of as many of my fellow humans as possible, thus decreasing mankind's footprint on mother earth.

After seeing "Apocalypto", I think I'd look rather fetching in a hand-pounded flaxen loincloth and a mouth full of rotted teeth.

Happy new year to Ray, and to everyone else here at LL.

Ray, if you use a [a href=\"http://www.dpreview.com/news/0106/canontrip/PSPRO90IS_img.jpg]Canon camera[/url] or a cell phone, a car, a computer or a wall wart, you contribute to the problem also. Technology is leaving a constant stream of waste. Better unplug and go analog!

You mean Ecological Footprint.

This society is based on consumption.
That's why I am very pessimist about the future.

May I, too, wish everyone reading this a happy and really good 2007.

Money? Health? Happines? In fact, they are all related and pretty much part of the same thing.

If you want to talk about heart problems or cancer, welcome to my home; if you want to knock money then you go enjoy public health services; if you want to be happy then have enough of the health and wealth to allow that rare state of being to flourish once in a while.

Being or not being rich has eff-all to do with killing the world. Simplistic blame-placing is possibly a greater evil than that which it seeks to condemn; we are all headed to hell in a hand-cart because we are human and, having the power to self-destruct, we will use it (the power, if not the hand-cart).

Sadam was rubbed out this morning; so what do you hear? One side crows and the other bleats. Nothing is learned, nothing will change for the better and life will go on in the same dark-ages manner it always has. I'm afraid that veneer of civilization is, indeed, paper thin. We send money to charities to discover that they function from within corporate-style offices; a little of that money reaches into the areas of horror to what avail? some other dictator builds up his bank account with it. The poor are still starved whilst their despotic rulers buy fleets of Mercedes as they encourage their dumb supporters to kill off the opposition...

Having said that, one still believes in a better day. That's the other side of the human condition: despite what you see and know to be true, you still can have faith. In something else.

Enough already, as might be said in the middle east; enjoy the brighter side of everything that comes your way but don't expect to change what is man.

You don't want to do that - it's the Carbon dioxide build up in the blood that kills you, not lack of oxygen. Suggest that you breath out into plastic bags and bury them in the back yard.


May Ray remain with us into next year as he provides a great counterpoint to intellectual argumentation. as well as many of the other long term residents around here.

Remember also Didger who is no longer with us, but still remembered. And best wishes to his brother who still comes here from time to time. Many others have wandered off to the great photoshop in the sky since this time last year.

And as many a good woman will tell you - it's not the size of your sensor but what you do with it that matters. Perhaps I made that up, but you get the gist.

So, if it is health or money - it is what you do with them. And if you have neither live life to the best with what you have because life is what you make it and you have wonderful opportunities to make it your best life yet.

I was thinking something similar, David, except those plastic bags could be a serious environmental hazard   .

Happy New Year to you too and thanks for your kind comments.

Many a man has spent his HEALTH to gain his WEALTH -

Only to spend his WEALTH trying to regain his HEALTH!


I wish you all, true health and wealth of mind for the New Year
