Question: I am in my 50s, married 30 years, and have four children and six grandchildren. I am not religious, but am spiritual. I am in relatively poor health, with diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure and cholesterol, but generally feel good and work out daily. In my early 40s, when I was in good health, I had a premonition or whatever that I had till age 58 to live. Rationally, I understand that odds are I am deluding myself, but I sincerely believe this is my fate. Outside of this, I seem to be mentally stable.

We had just walked out of the Colosseum in Rome after several hours of exploring the secluded nooks and crannies - which are numerous - of the two-millennia-old building. A tour bus pulled up and disgorged a dozen harried passengers, who dutifully formed up as if in a police lineup, took their selfies with the building in the background, and reboarded the bus. The incident happened so fast that Michael didn't even make any headway on his melting cone of gelato. During our travels, we run into many people who are diligently checking items off their bucket list.

It had been at the top of my bucket list for several years, so when circumstances made it possible for me to travel in the winter of 2014, I quickly booked my trip the preceding spring. Who could have predicted that such a brutal winter lay ahead? With one crippling winter storm after another, the obvious question posed by friends after learning of my upcoming vacation was where I was headed. More than a few brows were raised when I meekly replied, "Antarctica. " After coping with the relentless weather and five days without power in February, even I began to question the wisdom of my choice.

"I just love being on the water," says Peter Gibbons-Neff, a lifelong sailor and past commodore of The Corinthian Yacht Club of Philadelphia. His love developed as a boy, on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, and he has sailed all over the world. He has raced in the biannual Newport-to-Bermuda Race 14 times, earlier with his father and recently with three of his children. He raced across the Atlantic, from Bermuda all the way to Copenhagen, in 17 days when in college. He now keeps his boat on the Chesapeake, near Annapolis, and sails the bay as often as he can. At 66, he's still working hard as a wealth manager, and suffers from the conscientious man's curse - "I still have not gotten out of the guilt of leaving the office.

Two events conspire to make me take stock: my 55th birthday, which was Thursday, and the end of the world, which is scheduled for Saturday. The former is actually not so bad. I still remember my father's Life Begins at 40 party, when my brother, sister, and I made a brief choreographed appearance on the basement steps to watch my parents' friends party like it was 1966. No one there really believed life was beginning. But 45 years later, Dad is still working on his golf game, and his youngest has just turned an age that once sounded ancient.

Q: I thought I could be the cool mom and let my daughter's boyfriend stay with us since he's having problems at home. Even though they are discreet, I know they've had sex under my roof, which weirds me out. I've already told my daughter he could stay until he gets himself together. He's a really nice kid and has had nothing but bad luck in his life. But this is keeping me up at night. My partner says I' m a hypocrite and making too big a deal of this since he and I aren't married. Help!

THOSE OF US who remember Mort Crim might find it difficult to think of the sobersided former KYW-TV, Channel 3 news anchor as having a "bucket list. " But Crim does indeed have a number of things he'd like to do and achieve before his Final Sign-Off. And one of them is the focus of his return to local screens Saturday afternoon.   "Flight Level 74 and Still Climbing," which airs on his alma mater at 3 p.m., chronicles Crim's 7,800-mile round-trip, solo cross-country journey three years ago. "The trip itself was something I had on my ‘bucket list,' he said during a recent phone call from his Jacksonville, Fla., home.

The 3-month-old cheetah cubs at the National Zoo in Washington have been named for the fastest Americans in the Olympics. The zoo said the cubs have been named Carmelita and Justin after Carmelita Jeter and Justin Gatlin, who had the best American finishes in the 100-meter dash. Jeter won the silver medal in the women's 100 meters, finishing in 10.78 seconds. Gatlin took the bronze in the men's 100 with a time of 9.79. Cheetahs are the fastest animals on land. The cubs were born in April at the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute in Virginia.

You need to drag him into marriage counseling right away. Maybe then you can find out what's really going on with this so-called friend. Also, accidentally return a few texts or phone calls to this other woman and let her know that you're aware of all the time she's spending communicating with your husband and that you are only too happy to help her husband and/or boss become aware of it, too.

'Don't smell it before you eat it," the Icelandic waitress warned me. I stared down at the cubes of rotten, fermented shark in front of me. The smell of ammonia wafted past my nose, and before I lost my nerve, I speared the shark, chewed it hastily, and washed the whole business down with a searing shot of schnapps the Icelanders not-so-affectionately dub "The Black Death. " Now that I'd conquered the infamous hakarl, I sat back in satisfaction, but not with just my adventures in galling gastronomy.

IN MAGIC, the act of turning an object into a completely different thing is known as "transformation. " But recently, it was conjurer Jeff Hobson who was altered in a significant way. Hobson is one of seven wizards who on Tuesday begin a six-day, eight-performance run in "The Illusionists" at the Academy of Music. They're on a national tour, following a successful end-of-2014 Broadway run. According to the veteran entertainer, his time in the Big Apple made him see the city in an entirely new light.

THE LAST THING Dan Vassallo had on his running bucket list was to qualify for the United States Olympic Team Trials. In fact, throughout the duration of yesterday's Philadelphia Marathon, that's all that was on the 29-year-old Peabody, Mass., native's mind. That is until there was about a mile left to go and the gap between he and Birhanu Dare Kemal - an Ethiopian who lives in Manhattan - was starting to close. "I didn't think I was going to be able to catch him," Vassallo said.

My 20-year-old daughter Arielle had just spent five months studying in Brisbane and touring Australia, New Zealand, and Thailand when I joined her in Sydney. Upon my arrival, she shared everything she loved about the land down under - friendly Aussies, beautiful beaches, and outdoor activities. She'd been surfing, bungee-jumping, and skydiving. I assured her that none of those were on my bucket list. "How about the bridge climb?" she asked. I wanted to say yes, but the thought of scaling the Sydney Harbour Bridge's arch, nearly 500 feet above the water, was terrifying.

Hugh Campbell started running at age 86, joined a   running   club at 87, and broke the world indoor record in 3,000 meters for his age group at the University of Delaware last month, at 88. "They got all excited," said Campbell, "because they found when they had a world-record beater, there was a need for a drug test, and they didn't know what in the world to do about it. " He waited for nearly an hour as officials huddled. "The new masters drug-testing rules were difficult to interpret," said Robin Jefferis, a meet official.
