“You dress like a Grandma!” Have you ever heard someone being accused of that? It’s not usually said in a positive light. And if you’re a grandmother, it comes across even worse.
If you’ve ever watched the television series Shark Tank, you know that Kevin O’Leary (aka “Mr. Wonderful”) becomes quite testy when an entrepreneur pitches a product designed to hide or enhance a woman’s physical attributes.

Last night on Netflix I watched an episode of Frankie and Grace, a show about two older women played by Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda.
When we think of bones, we think of off-white, hard, stiff and unchanging objects. However, our bones are very much a living and dynamic tissue. They provide the structure of our bodies that enables us to move.
It is so important for all of us to nourish our bodies with healthy choices in food. Being health oriented, I have spent years researching different foods, making sure we get adequate vitamins and minerals in our diet.

In many ways, senior dating is like dating at any other age. We still want to find someone to share our dreams with. We are still looking for a partner who can support and love us. We still have many options for where to meet people – from online dating to speed dating to simply saying hi to someone on the bus.
When it comes to love after 60, many women feel like they are left with an uncomfortable choice – intimacy vs. independence. On the one hand, by the time we reach our 50s and 60s, many of us are comfortable living on or own. Perhaps we went through a divorce. Or, maybe, we simply choose never to marry. Either way, the idea of giving up part of our independence, even for love, can be terrifying.
When I talk with the women in our community about dating after 60, I am usually met with skeptical, or even cynical, responses. The most common complaint that women our age have about older men is that they only want to date younger women.
According to Lisa Copeland, dating after 50 is different than dating at any other point in our lives. When we are younger, we can afford to sit back and let men come to us. But, as we get a little older, Lisa encourages us to take control and not be afraid to strike up a conversation with men.

River cruising is gaining popularity—and why wouldn’t it? It takes you to places where nature, culture, history and exotic lifestyles blow your mind. Cruise journalist Jane Archer is happy to share her experiences. Enjoy the show!
Back in the good old days, senior discounts actually meant something. A few decades ago, when there were fewer of us out there, being in your 60s or 70s really was a ticket to lower prices on cruises, trains and planes around the world.

Stung by a Millennial colleague who’d branded her an old lady, Connie did not drown her sorrows in a glass of Chardonnay. She took stock of the sobering situation with characteristic determination.
Are you naturally inquisitive? Do you love to learn? I certainly do. From my perspective, it makes life much more interesting. Health experts are currently telling us that learning something new every day, whatever our age, keeps us healthy.
Connie remembered the discomfort of her first business meeting.
A cocky college grad with a newly minted business degree, she entered the conference room tucked inside a bubble of scholastic self-confidence only to leave an hour later with a stunned sense of reality.

A friend wrote to me about the agony she was suffering trying to transfer all the files from her almost-dead computer to her new one. She was using flash drives and it was taking days. I wrote back to her, saying:
At the risk of sounding like I’m advocating that you become one of those unaware old folks who try to engage strangers – inappropriately, in extended conversations – I’m going to say this anyway: “DO talk to strangers.”

For the first 60 years or so of our lives, we are on a well-marked super highway with plenty of directional signs. Graduate from High School. Go to College. Choose a career. Earn money. Buy a house, have a car, create a life. Maybe find a spouse and/or build a family. Go here. Do this.
Recently, I thought about the many possibilities available all around the world where one can find meaning and connection while serving others. Many people believe their world narrows after a certain age which is true when you lose connection.
