Hello world!


Yikes, my first blog post.  Something I have thought about doing for a long time.  Now, I’m ready to get going… but, this is scary since I am not all that techno-savvy and, probably like many other first-time bloggers, wonder if I will have anything to say that anyone really wants to read.

My impetus for writing is the angry reaction I have from picking up popular lifestyle magazines (many aimed at women) and seeing the bold statements on the cover or within, about how people in their 20’s, 30’s, and 40’s can be happier, more beautiful, healthy, rich, etc., etc.  Rarely are 50 year-olds included in the articles, and never do you see any mention of 60 year-olds.  I’d like to submit we older folks would like to know how to be happier, and more beautiful, healthy, and rich also.

So, I hope to include lifestyle topics that will be of interest to those of you in the second half of your life; and, in so doing, will perhaps enlighten you or make you laugh – hopefully, not anger you.  I believe we can all learn from each other, so feel free to offer comments on anything of particular interest to you.

I welcome you on this journey, and hope you find something that inspires you to live life to the fullest…ignoring the wind, which to me, represents the negative!
