Silver Tsunami


The Silver Tsunami is heading at us at break-neck speed.

The medical industry says that within the next 6 to 8 years, American hospitals will need 1 million more nurses than they have at the moment to accomodate aging boomers

On top of the, the prediction is that boomers will be fighting over beds with 20 and 30's somethings suffering from the long term affects of an industrial diet. The U.S. Census Bureau projects the number of elderly Americans will nearly double to 71 million by 2030, leaving one physician trained in geriatric care for every 7,665 seniors. No that's going to be a busy doctor.

So, on this auspicous day, my 60th birthday, let's all dedicate the future to taking care of our Holy Temple. More on this later. Time to go celebrate life.

By the way, I was born in the seventh hour, of the seventh day, the son of a seventh son.
Guess I'm a lucky guy. Lucky to have a healthy and happy family.
