Add Some Flair to Your Look with Amazing Accessories

When it comes to showing off your personal style, do you love to play with accessories? I do!

So, today, I’d like to share some recommendations for finding the perfect accessories to go with any outfit from our guest writer, Penelope Whiteley. I’ll also share some of my own favorite accessories. 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.

Recognizing and Fighting Aging Stereotypes

One of the problems with aging stereotypes is that they have a tendency to become so ingrained in popular culture that we stop looking out for them. This is a shame because we can’t fight aging stereotypes unless we recognize them for what they are! So, today, I would like to talk about a few aging stereotypes. Are there any that you think have an element of truth to them? Which ones are completely false? Let’s discuss this together. 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

Telling Your Life Story and a Few Words About Myself

Telling Your Life Story and a Few Words About Myself

This might seem a bit strange to hear from a woman who runs a community like Sixty and Me, but, I don’t really enjoy talking about myself. Frankly, it’s so much more enjoyable hearing about all of the wonderful things that YOU are doing! At the same time, one of the most frequent requests that I get from our members is to share a bit more about my past. So, since the theme of today’s Mornings with Sixty and Me is “telling your life story,” I thought that it would be appropriate to also share a few words about myself before asking you to do the same. Join us as we discuss the importance of telling your life story. I’ll kick things off and then I’d like to find out more about all of you! 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

I hope that you will continue to join us every morning. After all, we still have plenty to discuss! Since financial independence is important to each and every one of us, today, I would like to discuss some creative ways to make money after 60. I would also love to get your thoughts on working and saving in retirement. 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.

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
