There are those apparently healthy athletes, who suddenly drop dead from a heart attack, and then there was my grandmother who smoked until the day she died at 88. When I visited her in California at the age of 77, she told me a joke:
“A guy goes into a drugstore and asks – ‘Can I have a packet of condoms please…(and in a whisper) and a packet of cigarettes.’”

Our government doesn’t seem to know its arse from it’s elbow regarding health priorities, but I have to confess that I was very happy when they outlawed smoking in public places!
