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

Crazy Things from the 60s, Conventions and an Olympic Committee Decision

Today, the Democratic National Convention kicks off and it will be fascinating to see what kind of picture the party paints about the future of the United States. Join us as we discuss the decision by the International Olympic Committee to allow some Russian athletes to compete in the games, a potential trade deal between the UK and China, a story about the negative impact of working too hard and some crazy things that were acceptable in the 1960s. Come join us for a cup of tea and a chat! Read More

Taking a Break from Bad News

Good morning! Today, I want to take a bit of a break from bad news and focus on feel-good stories that can help us to stay positive. Join us as we discuss Helen Mirren’s upcoming appearance in “Fast 8,” Richard Branson’s 66th birthday and a big announcement from Mick Jagger. We will also discuss a survey that, among other things, said that “Women over 47 should throw away their skinny jeans.” What nonsense! I’m so proud of the women in our community who are saying no to aging stereotypes and living life in their own way. Come join us for a cup of tea and a chat! Read More

Healing the World and Avoiding Regrets

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! Come join us for a cup of tea and a chat! Read More

Pandemonium, Pictures from Jupiter and Politics

Good morning! Today is Pandemonium Day, which seems strangely fitting, given everything that has been going in the world recently. In the United States, after much speculation, Donald Trump has said that he will announce his VP pick this Friday. In the UK, Theresa May has officially taken over as Prime Minister. In science news, NASA’s probe has sent back its first pictures of Jupiter. They are amazing, by the way! Join us as we discuss these stories, plus the situation in the South China Sea, the landing of Solar Impulse in Cairo and much more! I’ll also be announcing who won the magical French tea that I mentioned yesterday! Come join us for a cup of tea and a chat! Read More
