"Ageless Aging: A Woman's Guide On How To Live Better Longer"
By Maddy Dychtwald, Co-Founder Age Wave

While women have won the longevity lottery, living an average of six years longer than men, for most, the last decades of life can be plagued with a cascade of health challenges from the aches and pains of arthritis to heart disease and stroke to dementia.

What if there was a way for women to extend not only their longevity but their quality of life? I wanted to explore this territory and bring the answer to tens of million of women so that they can live better longer.

"Who Wants To Lawn Bowl? "
By Larry Hayes,
A050 publisher

An Ideal Outdoor Social Sport for Seniors

As many of you know, I love playing USTA tennis and have for 30+ years as player and captain.

When my wife Gloria approached me about “lawn bowling,” my immediate reaction was "no way."

I thought it was a slow, boring, ancient game played in England by older folks dressed in all “white."
I was wrong.


"Chillin' Out In London"
By Don Mankin, Travel writer

I lie on my back on the cool grass, the sound of quacking ducks and raucous frisbee players wafting my way on the soft breeze drifting across the meadow.

Sheer bliss! A welcome respite from the crowds cramming Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey and St Paul’s Cathedral.

We had already visited the most popular tourist destinations in London and were looking for something different, something calming that would refresh my lagging spirits.

Long Term Care Insurance

"Dealing With The Claims Process & Rate Increases"
By Hans Hug

Long Term Care Insurance is a unique product with a claims process unlike any other Insurance.

In addition to that, due to often extreme premium volatility, keeping what you bought can certainly be a problem as double-digit rate increases have been the norm for quite some time.

To help
consumers effectively understand and navigate both of these topics, I have committed my 26 years of LTC Insurance experience to paper and have written comprehensive guides.

Both available through my website for one price--$48 for 7 documents.


"Do We Really Need Travel Insurance? "

By Evelyn Preston, Money Lady

After Army and job stints around the world, my Aussie husband had no yen for travel.

Nor did he have a passport, a long story of dual citizenship. When we married, he rooted in CA, U.S.A.

Fast forward to the now world of cruise ships and river boats, solo driving and cycling tours, Rhodes Scholars, safaris and adventure travel—seniors welcome!

Even the aged and infirm cheerfully pack up and go, go, go.

"Will I Live a Long, Healthy Life?"

"My mother and grandparents both lived until their 90s. I have their genes so, I will too, right?" --Cathy, San Francisco

When I ask people how important “genetics” is for living a long, healthy life, most believe it accounts for 50% or more toward longevity.

However, latest research from Google’s Calico Labs contend that 90% of our health and longevity is due to our lifestyle and environment.

And only 10% by our genetics. What's more important than genetics?


"Putting My Money Where
My Mouth Is"

By Karen Zamel

I’ve always considered myself a rescue person–formally or informally.

From a young age, I brought home stray kittens to an allergic mom.

From the moment I got married and had a house, we adopted cats from rescues.

When my crazy career made way for a personal life, I went to an animal welfare conference to learn how I could help save lives and connect with a local organization.

As a result, I became involved with San Jose Animal Advocates and Silicon Valley Pet Project (SVPP).

Save Monarchs.
Plant Milkweed

Moms Helping Monarch Butterflies
To Survive

By Bill Moniz

Two Los Altos California next door neighbors, Judy Moniz and LaRita Desimpel, have joined forces in providing a welcoming habitat for the endangered Monarch butterfly.

Last year they began growing several types of milkweed plants, the only food that Monarch caterpillars can eat which produced a humble 40-50 successfully hatched chrysalises.

This year they have successfully hatched and released nearly 125 butterflies so far and expect, provided the food supply lasts, (the caterpillars eat day and night and can go through multiple branches of milkweed everyday), to release another 50-75 apiece.

Their success has encouraged neighbors Jeff and Lisa Blanchard to plan on planting milkweed next year.


Time Does Not Stand Still

Life is a task that we do ourselves every day.

When you look... it's already six in the afternoon; when you look...it's already Friday.

When one looks...the month is over; when one looks...the year is over; when one looks...50, 60, 70 and 80 years have passed!

When you look...we no longer know where our friends are. When you look...we lost the love of our life and now, it's too late to go back.

Do not stop doing something you like due to lack of time.
