My Mothers World. My Emancipation.

My mother, wearing a white collared blue wasted dress with a soft petticoat, nylons and white pumps, waved me out the door to join the other neighbor kids walking to school. She had risen before the rest of the family, prepared a well balanced breakfast for us. Poached eggs in milk over buttered white toast, bacon, half a grapefruit broiled with brown sugar on top with a glass of orange juice. I never did know what she did the rest of the day while I was in school. I just assumed she…

"Doctor Doctor Gave her the Blues"!

A story of how prescription drugs destroyed a Boomers family and almost killed his brother. This is a true story. I have changed the names. It is surprising, sad but also be a great warning for other Boomers. 
It started with a person working very hard to build her career. She was on her way up and actually reached the top within her company. We will call her Carol. Carol was working long hours from 6am until 7pm, 5 days a week. Managing her staff,…

Money, Money, Money, Money--Money!

Author’s Note: My website was down for a week, which delayed this post. At least I can honestly say I kept up my daily writing in the meantime!

The recent record-breaking Powerball lottery—along with all of the discussions both online and off regarding what someone would do for or with a billion dollars—brought to my mind several thoughts and observations.

Should I Buy Long-Term Care Insurance?

Although Obamacare has insured and lowered costs for some, there are still groups who are becoming increasingly more vulnerable to the costs of care. With baby boomers coming into old age in a vastly different environment than previous generations, they are going to need to start planning now. When it comes to paying for care outside of simple doctor visits, many older adults are on fixed incomes and therefore don’t have as much flexibility as a younger, fully employed individual. With…

Staying Healthy After 50

In the United States men have an average life span of 76 years. One of the main reasons is it five years less than women is proactive disease prevention. Compared to Women, men make only half as many preventive care visits to the doctor which leads men to be at a higher risk for heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. We created this guide to help men over 50 figure out what type of health screening men need to be getting and how often they should have them.

Did we miss anything? Let…
