Two bodies in idle mode, whether 16 or 69, produce 200 watts, equal to some 600 btus; in activity mode the power output is even greater....
Actually 200 watts under a couple of blankets is usually warm enough. We usually don't turn on the heat until we hop out of bed.
As to feeling 16 at 69, it's all a state of mind, the frequency is just lower.
(I hope I don't have to moderate myself...)
Ginny and I are both 69 and not quite ready to believe we'll both be 70 next August.... certainly being on the road makes one feel younger.
