The women in our community have strong opinions about going grey. Some women absolutely love their grey hair, while others, like me, continue to dye it blond, brown or even pink!

Values are so important in every aspect of our lives. As the Republican and Democratic conventions draw to a close, most Americans say that they want to support a candidate who shares their values.
