    My Grandfather is turning 100 tomorrow!

    http://www.bridgewater.edu/Bridgewat...n100thBirthday

    In his honor, Bridgewater College (he taught there for 43 years) has started a scholarship fund in his name to support the track and field program which he was involved with.

    That's great Ned. 43 years as an educator, WOW!

    My grandfather would've been 100 this year too.

    I sure hope the answer he gives is a pack of Marlboros, a rare steak, and 2 glasses a scotch every day.
