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.

You can look at the event from the downside, in that the brisk ticket sales and media frenzy portrayed millions of…

Four Different Types of Eldercare

It doesn’t hurt to know the differences and advantages to each type of eldercare. I’ll keep this post short and only talk about the four main types: independent living or retirement communities, assisted living, continuing care retirement communities, and nursing homes. Let’s get started.

Independent Living:

Independent living allows seniors to remain within their own homes if they are still able to perform daily tasks such as…

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…

Frank Reagan(played by Tom Sellick), the almost too handsome Police Commisioner on Blue Bloods, often remarks, "Where were you on nine-eleven?" He says all New Yorkers will always remember where they were when the South Tower collapsed.

9-1-1 are the three digits you 'dial,' when you need help, and you need it fast. Media pundits speculated that the co-ordinated al-Qa'ida attack on the two icons of the West's financial prowess came on the eleventh day of…

This new serial is about a metaphorical football, and I admit to not being all that sure that this one is properly inflated. There will be some really bad 'plays' called from the sidelines, and perhaps some heroic game-saving plays by a rookie...  or two. The ball is currently around mid-field, and everybody has their eyes on it. The two separate goals are unclear off in the distance, but everyone seems 100% convinced that this ball has been moving the wrong way. An injured player has come…

My mother was the world's best cook. I'm pretty sure that there are many of us who feel that way, and I pity those who do not, or cannot. Before my Mom attained to this very prestigious honor, my paternal Grandmother held the title. When my Dad went overseas during WWII, Mom moved in with her in-laws, and the tutorial began. You can imagine all the psychological tension that such an arrangement entailed for both teacher and student. Further complicating things for…

“I mean, they say you die twice. One time when you stop breathing and a second time, a bit later on, when somebody says your name for the last time.”  — Banksy

While this quote was directly attributed to the graffiti artist Banksy, the sentiment is not his alone and appears all over the place, attributed to…
