    My advice about turning 50, for those who aren't there yet: don't miss the opportunity to celebrate! It only happens once, and you might as well make it memorable. I've had a few friends who got depressed about turning 50 and didn't want to mark the occasion. Afterward they regretted it. I though 50 was great. 60, well, I admit that's a little weird, but I gave myself a party anyway. Happy birthday!
