For the rest of us, some adjustments in…

Factors for Ageless Living Travel

Traveling when you’re getting up there in years is a bit different from when you are 25. Granted, you may have the financial resources to do more, but the rest of you may not be as cooperative.

Sneaking In A Quick Workout Calls for Ingenuity

I did 50 squats, 40 leg lifts, tons of lunges, and jogged in place the other morning. I got in a serious 20 minute workout. By the time I got home, I was really sweating.

Dinner Party Hosting Doesn’t Have to be Scary

Dana and I love hosting dinner parties, but for me, it wasn’t always that way.  She, on the other hand, is a born party thrower and hostess.  I fretted over absolutely everything, but mostly that people would cancel at the last minute.  After the first few, however, when people actually did show up and seemingly had a good time, I started to relax and even…
