You and I seem to share the same fondness for water.

Have you spent much time in Hawaii?  We go there pretty regularly.  I snapped these pix on the Big island when I stuck my camera out of the window...  Given the range of water options there, Hawaii is one of my favorite places.  Not sure I would be happy living there though...  Undecided

I've never been to Hawaii, although I presently have a lot of vacation time accrued and a strong desire to go. Several people have told me that the industry there pays quite handsomely for the work I do.

Alas, I'm currently single and saving money for some investments and a side business I'd like to start up soon. Oh, the decisions that confront me on a day-to-day basis here in "narcissist land!" Grin

So YOU are 333386 aka Soul Crusher after all.  Grin

My perfect idea of living the good life would be that everyday is the same....(except if I went on a vacation or something)

I would like to wake up in the morning, walk outside and exercise or just soak up the fresh air...I would have a nice house in the desert in New Mexico (weather is nice there, not too hot like Arizona)....I would like that I could see mountains outside my window when I wake up...I would have a nice beautiful woman living with me who will cook all of my meals, massage me when I need it, and bang and blow me when I need it....she would be a great conversationalist as well (between the blowing and banging)...I would have a nice faithful dog that I would walk in the morning.....exercise and lift weights in the morning as well...then settle in and watch some cable and read the newspaper...maybe I would teach part-time at a university to keep intellectually active...I would read books, watch more cable, eat some more, and surf the web....I would not have to worry about paying bills....would have a few friends who come over every now and then to have beers and watch football with, and talk about women....then take a shower every night with my woman, watch more cable...eat some more....bang..and then bed..to start the same thing all over the next day....
that would be an amazing life for me

Congratulations on knowing what you want in detail. That's half the battle. Most people don't know what they want or where they're going. As a result... any road takes them there. Those who know what they want, and keep a firm vision of it in their head, usually find a way to acquire it. Good For you!  Smiley

Indeed it is.  Dunno when you were last there but the amount of development in Poipu (where I typically stay) is sure to surprise you if you could see it now.  It's still gorgeous beyond measure, but you can see that "old Hawaii" is going away fast.  Cry

Enjoy it while you can.

Really?  That photo brings back memories for me... but I have mixed feelings about those memories.  Sure a T-bone tastes great, but I have moved so far away from steak in my diet that it looks almost foreign to me.  And when I see that photo, I am just as likely to think about heart disease as I am to think about how good the steak might taste.  Bay no likey heart disease.  These days, if I have a steak twice in one year that would be a lot for me.  Now, a teriaki or encrusted salmon is just as appealing to me--more even because it is a healthy choice.   Tongue

Steaks?  Almost never.  Chicken all the time.  I enjoy pork too, but not as often; duck as well, but rarely have it.  I would never give up meat, but yesterday I attended a luncheon at work.  It was catered and the dishes were chicken or encrusted salmon.  I chose the salmon and it was as good as any steak I have ever had.  I left the lunch totally full, but I didn't have that bloated feeling that so often comes from eating and digesting a steak.  When I got home after work, I had a small sandwich as I was not hungry enough for "dinner."  If I could eat like that every day that would be the good life.  Tongue

nice. I don't feel like eating as much fish as meat protein. I don't know why. Most guys I know simply don't want to eat 300 - 400 grams of salmon. It is too much.

Most (young) guys don't think much about heart disease or their family history for that sort of thing. I confess when I was 21 healthy eating wasn't high on my list of priorities either... but as you get older, and your knowledge base increases, your priorities change.  For me, enjoying The Good Life means living long enough to do so.  Mike Matarazzo used to talk/brag about how much meat he ate... that did not end well for him.  Undecided

^^ Concur.

The lipid hypothesis is undergoing a much-needed overhaul. Animal fat is not as "evil" as it's been portrayed, but sugar is only detrimental with not one health benefit.
