Statistics vary, but in less than seven years there won't be a single cell left in any of our bodies that's the same as it is today.

I'm in this absolutely gorgeous manor house with acres of quite beautiful countryside. I've got trout in the river, an organic vegetable garden, I've got my work 40 yards from my home.
