Reversing Aging in Older Adults and Teaching Kids Kindness

Most women my age are highly skeptical of anti-aging creams and potions. There’s a good reason for this… most of them simply don’t do anything! At the same time, most of us would like to have more energy and strength to explore the world. If scientists ever come up with a genuine process for reversing aging, we would find it hard to turn down. Join us as we discuss a study that claims to have found a hormone that may reverse aging in humans, a good news story about teaching kids kindness, the latest on Typhoon Nida, a Zika Warning in Miami and much more!

Join me as we discuss this story, the first case of Zika transmitted in the U.S., a memorial for the priest who was killed in Normandy and a feel good story about a swimmer from Syria.

The Importance of Values in Society, Politics and Ourselves

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. In the wider world, it is possible to see the conflicts that we are facing as a clash of values. Even getting the most from life after 60 relies, in part, in cultivating positive values in ourselves. Join us as we discuss the economic crisis in Venezuela, the latest from the Democratic convention, a good news story about an elephant being freed from chains after 30 years and much more! Oh, and today is Milk Chocolate Day, so, why not treat yourself to a little something special? Come join us for a cup of tea and a chat! Read More

Prince Harry’s Regret, Europe’s Security and the Democratic Party’s Choice

Few people have captured the imagination of the world more strongly than Princess Diana. Of course, famous people aren’t just icons. They are also mothers and fathers, sons and daughters. In today’s media-obsessed culture, this is more important to remember than ever. Recently, her son, Prince Harry, spoke about her death and the grieving process in general. His words are important for anyone who has lost someone close to them. Join us as we discuss Hillary Clinton’s official nomination as the Democratic Party’s presidential candidate, the security situation in Europe and some fun facts about Helen Mirren. I’ll also announce who won the cute little bag from Bali that I showed you yesterday. 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!
