Schlumberg On Growing Old

I knew the "Old" Toad when we were both young and he was simply a "Toad". I received this from him today. I have no idea why he thought it would apply to us:
As we get older, we sometimes begin to doubt our ability to
'make a difference' in the world. It is at these times that our
hopes are boosted by the remarkable achievements of other
'seniors' who have found the courage to take on challenges that
would make many of us wither.
Harold Schlumberg is such a person.

"I've often been asked, 'What do you old folks do now that you're
retired'? Well, I'm fortunate to have a chemical engineering
background, and one of the things I enjoy most is turning beer,
wine, Scotch, and margaritas into urine."
