Recently, I was looking forward to a walk around one of the beautiful Minneapolis, Minnesota lakes with a former work colleague – especially since it looked like it was going to be a real “top 10” gorgeous, summer day. Though I knew it was going to be very hot, I’d neglected to check the humidity level.
By the time we reach our 60s, most of us have given up on anti-aging pills and potions. In fact, most of us don’t want to look younger; we just want to look radiant and full of life. This is why I prefer the term “positive aging” to “anti-aging.”

Children are natural born explorers. With a wild and wonderful sense of adventure, my little 2-year-old grandson Max loves leading me through his playground “jungle” in search of “meows” (aka cats). My 11-year-old grandson Jack is now questioning everything and with a maturing imagination, inspired by the fantasy lands of Harry Potter!

Women are more likely than men to underrate themselves when it comes to investing. Yet women are usually in charge of household budgets, are more willing to save for the long-term and are better bargain hunters.
When I asked the women in our community to share their advice for younger women, a surprising number recommended that their younger sisters keep a separate bank account from their husbands.
