    I can remember this guy being old when I was a kid. He had been on infomercials for the last decade at least hawking his juicer.

    96 is nothing to sneeze at .. must have been doing something right

    RIP Jack ♥

    I remember his exercise show from when I was a kid...always very upbeat and full of energy.

      I always thought he was on speed...

      It's a big loss to the fitness world.
      Art is always and everywhere the secret confession, and at the same time the immortal movement of its time.

        Do you remember his dog on the show?

        He was in such great shape for 96, no dementia, not feeble, doing his juicer infomercials. Hmmm, maybe there's something to this healthy living. Nah, must've been a fluke

          I was thinking along the same lines then I remembered George Burns (lifelong cigar smoker, lived to about 100), Al Hirschfeld (said his only exercise was lifting a pen, lived to 98 or 99), and Sid Ceasar (several decades of alcohol and pill abuse and was, last I knew, still kicking around and pretty sharp). That made my mind easier.
          People will believe anything, which means I will believe anythingI want to start believing in things that have shapeliness and harmony.

            vaguely...a German Shepherd?

              I think it was a white german shepard, wasn't it?

              His wife's name was Elaine, right?
