With so much negativity in the world, it is wonderful to be able to celebrate something that brings the world together. The Olympics is just such an event! The games opened a few hours ago and, like many of you, I am looking forward to seeing the discipline, courage and talent of the world’s best athletes. Join us as we discuss this story, plus a threat to bees and butterflies, the latest on the situation in Syria and a story about the power of saying no. Come join us for a cup of tea and a chat! And, please do me a quick favor and tell one other woman about Mornings with Sixty and Me today.
When I was younger, watching the Olympics was always a family event. I loved the look of wonder on my kids’ faces as they watched the athletes performing almost superhuman feats of strength and speed. Well, this year, there is another reason for kids to tune in to the games – karate, skateboarding, climbing and surfing have been added to the lineup! Join us as we discuss the Olympics, the latest on the knife attack in the UK, an article about the power of “yes” and a feel good story about Leonard the Garden Gnome.

The Olympics have always been a symbol of unity and hope.

Like Helen Mirren, I believe that women today are living in exciting times. Of course, we still face important issues, but, on the whole, the good outweighs the bad. One area that I am especially excited about is the expansion of science and technology. In addition to covering today’s world news, I’d like to share three technology stories that have important implications for our community. Join us as we discuss a genetically engineered “living hip” that will remove pain, Virgin Galactic’s continued quest to make space travel accessible and the merger of two of the most important environmentally conscious companies on the planet.

Most women my age are highly skeptical of anti-aging creams and potions. There’s a good reason for this… most of them simply don’t do anything! At the same time, most of us would like to have more energy and strength to explore the world. If scientists ever come up with a genuine process for reversing aging, we would find it hard to turn down. Join us as we discuss a study that claims to have found a hormone that may reverse aging in humans, a good news story about teaching kids kindness, the latest on Typhoon Nida, a Zika Warning in Miami and much more!

Now that the Democratic and Republican conventions are over, I want to take a break from U.S. politics and talk about a few things that we can all do to feel happier every day, according to science. Join us as we discuss this story plus the election of Tokyo’s first female governor, the path of Typhoon Nida, a few developments in the situation in Syria and a feel-good story about a group of college kids who moved into a nursing home. Come join us for a cup of tea and a chat!
Well, just when you thought the U.S. presidential election couldn’t get more chaotic, Julian Assange, editor at WikiLeaks, has boasted that his organization is ready to release additional documents from the Hillary Clinton campaign. Join me as we discuss this story, a creative solution to creating more senior housing, the tragic hot air balloon crash in Texas, the confirmed end of Game of Thrones and much more!

The women in our community have strong opinions about going grey. Some women absolutely love their grey hair, while others, like me, continue to dye it blond, brown or even pink! Well, if you fall into the color camp, I have good news. According to scientists, we may have finally found the gene responsible for grey hair. This is a step towards reversing the process. Join me as we discuss this story, the first case of Zika transmitted in the U.S., a memorial for the priest who was killed in Normandy and a feel good story about a swimmer from Syria.

Last night, the Democratic convention wrapped up and Hillary Clinton officially became the party’s candidate. Now that the primaries are behind us, we can look forward to hearing both candidates share their vision for the country and the wider world. Join us as we discuss the close of the Democratic convention, a 102-year-old delegate’s opinion on this year’s election, Angela Merkel’s decision not to change Germany’s refugee policy, despite the recent attacks that have shaken her country and a feel-good story about the importance of exercise. Come join us for a cup of tea and a chat!
Values are so important in every aspect of our lives. As the Republican and Democratic conventions draw to a close, most Americans say that they want to support a candidate who shares their values. In the wider world, it is possible to see the conflicts that we are facing as a clash of values. Even getting the most from life after 60 relies, in part, in cultivating positive values in ourselves. Join us as we discuss the economic crisis in Venezuela, the latest from the Democratic convention, a good news story about an elephant being freed from chains after 30 years and much more! Oh, and today is Milk Chocolate Day, so, why not treat yourself to a little something special? Come join us for a cup of tea and a chat!
