Is 50 the new 40?

What is freedom of expression? Without the freedom to offend, it ceases to exist - Salman Rushdie

Here's a snippet from today's paper: "In Wales a poster campaign targeting 'Happy, Healthy, Horny' over-50s has been called offensive by some people. This was reported in one newspaper under the headline: 'Stimulating ads upset eldery.' " I find it very offensive. Less of the elderly if you please. What do you think Liz ?

I never thought i'd view 50 as "not that old", but I can see it now. I don't want to think that in 15 years time thats it no more nookie or fun. I do have to admit though I am enjoying gardening more and more! Is that bad? Am I terminal?

These ones getting upset I bet are some of lifes moaners looking for something to complain about. Last week it was the price of Baked Beans!

Elderly at 50? Pur-lease.

I'm a happy, healthy, sexy 50+ and life's never been better.

(Don't like the word 'horny' though'.)

What are they targeting me for though? It's not giving blood, is it?
