Stress

I would normally not so blatantly plagiarize but I could not help but break a rule.  I recently came upon this and felt it must be shared.  I do not know the original source and thus ask anyone out there to share the origin if known.  A great smile and truism to share. A young …

Retirement Paradise ?

Many of us have read about “Secret” retirement paradises in the various magazines such as Money, Forbes, and the many books on the subject.  Yes, what better source can there be than the “Bear” ?  Over the next several years your humble Charles Kuralt wannabe will be visiting these places for an unvarnished report and …

ALONE

Being or believing you are alone is the greatest problem we face. This is certainly not a new phenomenon but is becoming a critical issue and growing at an alarming rate. I believe it is a overlooked component of many of the current problems we face. I first became aware of the problem when I …

NOTEWORTHY

I was very lucky as I grew up in an environment where music was a constant companion.  I took piano lessons at an early age (four) and hated every minute.  Latter I moved on to the Saxophone and still play even taking lessons today.  Paul Desmond was never insecure that I was around however as …

Sonny Bono?

Well here I am after 20 years skiing. First, I must confess I was never asked to join the US Olympic (likely an over sight) but in my heart I was a “contender”. I’m told the new skis (actually far from new) make the adventure much easier and enjoyable. I’m also told one now wears …

Body Redo

Like many if not most 66 year old the men the body does not lend it self to Chic Magnet material.  Not so much that we are talking embarrassing rather the 33″ waist has crept up to 36″, having run the Mini Marathon 20 times/ last year was impossible, stamina is marginal, and lets’s say …

Bucket List

There was a wonderful movie made several years ago that starred Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman called the “Bucket List”. What a great idea! Everyone and most importantly those over sixty need such a list. Such an endeavor is not be taken lightly. The goal should be one hundred (100) possibilities, however such a list …
