Becoming a Life-Long Learner, More Election Fallout and a Butterfly Scarf

After a tough day yesterday, America is starting to come to terms with the election. I stay “starting,” because, for many, the healing process will be long indeed. That said, America is a great country and I am confident that everything will be ok in the end. In addition to talking about the fallout from the election, I’d like to discuss the importance of becoming a life-long learner. Then, I will share a feel good story about a 10-year-old boy who built a small house for homeless people. I also have a beautiful little butterfly scarf to give away to one lucky person. So, stay tuned for that! 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

America Elects Donald Trump and Begins the Healing Process

By now, you have probably heard that Donald Trump is the President-elect of the United States. So, now that the most emotional election in many decades is over, I would like to dedicate today’s episode of Mornings with Sixty and Me to beginning the healing process. On a personal level, I can only hope that our new president does his best to make America a fair and prosperous place for people of all races, religions and backgrounds. I also want to express how proud I am that, as sisters, we have treated each other with respect these last few months. Today, let’s remember what we have in common. We will get through this together. Everything is going to be ok. 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

Turning 60 is a Turning Point, Trouble in South Korea and a Yoga DVD Winner

I don’t know about you, but, for me, turning 60 was a turning point. It was the beginning of a transition from “doing what I had to do” to “doing what I wanted to do.” Of course, it hasn’t been a straight path. I still work. Perhaps I always will. But, with 6 decades of experience, I finally see the world for what it is. Perhaps more importantly, I see the world for what I can make it. Do you feel the same? Join us as we discuss the significance of turning 60, trouble in South Korea, the final days before the U.S. election, a book recommendation: The Angel of Aldgate, from one of our members, the timetable for the Brexit, the latest from Syria 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! I will also announce the winner of the Yoga DVD that I mentioned yesterday, so, stick with us to the end to find out who won. Read More

Being a Hero After 60, a Brexit Shock and the FBI Under Fire

In my opinion, every woman over 60 has the power to be a hero. No, I’m not talking about being able leap tall buildings or see through walls.

Join us as we discuss this story plus the latest on the Brexit, a new shipwreck off the coast of Libya, the FBI’s tough balancing act, another suicide bombing in Turkey and a call for women in France to protest for equal pay.
