Helen Mirren Shines, Austria Votes and David Cameron Quits

Today, I want to talk about the fact that Dame Helen Mirren was just voted “Best Dressed” by Vanity Fair. It’s not so much Mirren’s fashion sense that is important – although she is fabulous! It’s more the attention that older female celebrities are starting to get that I find important. Let’s hope that this trend continues and that women our age – from all walks of life – continue to get more attention in society. Join us as we discuss this story plus David Cameron’s decision to step down as a Member of Parliament, 3 kinds of grief that no-one talks about, a story about sending a postcard to your younger self and much more! Come join us for a cup of tea (or coffee) and a chat! And, if you enjoy the show, please tell one friend about us today. Your support means so much to me! Read More

Remembering 9/11, Celebrating Grandparents Day and 13 Totally Cool Grandparents

Today’s milestones take us to completely different ends of the emotional spectrum. On the one hand, today is the day that we remember the victims of the 9/11 attacks. Our hearts go out to everyone who was impacted, directly or indirectly, by the horrible events of that day. On the other hand, today is officially Grandparents Day. These events could not be more different. At the same time, they both remind us of the preciousness of human life. Yes, some people are capable of horrible, hateful and destructive actions. But, most of us just want to see our children, grandchildren, friends and neighbors thrive. So, today, let’s remember the past respectfully and look to the future hopefully. Join us as we discuss these stories plus the latest from Syria, the beginning of Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month, a special cat who survived the earthquake in Italy, 13 cool grandparents and much more! Come join us for a cup of tea and a chat! And, if you enjoy the show, please tell one friend – or two, or three – about us today. Your support means so much to me! Read More

Tiny Houses in Detroit, a Ceasefire in Syria and 33 Tourists Trapped in Alps

I have a confession. Even though – of perhaps because of the fact that – I am surrounded by technology every day, sometimes I just want to pack up my things and move to a tiny one-room cottage in the mountains. I’m not even sure if I would need hot water or Internet access. Do you sometimes feel the same? In any case, I’d like to kick off today’s program with a discussion of how tiny homes are providing affordable housing in Detroit. Join me as we discuss this story plus the potential for a ceasefire in Syria, 33 tourists who were trapped in the Alps, the connection between yoga and building bone density and much more.
