Taking a Break from Bad News

Good morning! Today, I want to take a bit of a break from bad news and focus on feel-good stories that can help us to stay positive. Join us as we discuss Helen Mirren’s upcoming appearance in “Fast 8,” Richard Branson’s 66th birthday and a big announcement from Mick Jagger. We will also discuss a survey that, among other things, said that “Women over 47 should throw away their skinny jeans.” What nonsense! I’m so proud of the women in our community who are saying no to aging stereotypes and living life in their own way. Come join us for a cup of tea and a chat! Read More

Healing the World and Avoiding Regrets

Good morning! One of the side-effects of all of the tragic news that we have been hearing about lately is that it makes us think more about our own lives. Have we done all of the things that we wanted to do? Have we told the people closest to us how much we care? As the people of France and Turkey begin the difficult process of healing, I want to start a conversation about how to avoid regrets after 60. Join me as we discuss the healing process in Nice and Turkey, Trump’s new VP choice, avoiding regrets, the story of an 86-year-old woman with 86 grandkids and much more! Come join us for a cup of tea and a chat! Read More

I’ll also announce who won the beautiful little picture that I found here in France. Come join us for a cup of tea and a chat! Read More

Sending Nice Our Love and Prayers

Good morning! It is with great sadness that I have to report that there has been another terror attack in France. While, I am currently in a different part of the country, the proximity of this horrible event, which occurred in Nice, has made it even more personal for me. Let’s send everyone in Nice our love and prayers today. Join us as we discuss the events in France, Donald Trump’s running mate, Prince Harry’s decision to get an HIV test, 7 healthy foods for older adults and much more. We need each other more than ever today. Let’s have a cup of tea and a chat! Read More

In science news, NASA’s probe has sent back its first pictures of Jupiter. They are amazing, by the way!
