Mid-life crisis? Forget that! Mid-Life Mojo, part 1 of 2

One thing that frustrates me is when people my age forget something, or can’t keep up with their kids physically or whatever, and they say versions of this: “Well, I’m old!” When did we come to accept that we are “old” in our 40′s? Please join me in rejecting this notion! There are accounts in […]

The house that BobDad’s building

My former husband nicknamed my parents BobDad and MomPam in the 80’s. I just went down to return my dad’s Mini Cooper and pick my car up in the shop. And look what my dad was doing, to the side of his house! It’s a shed, with the top level being a grandkids’ playhouse. Cool, […]

Borrowing Dad’s Mini-Cooper . . . and his attitude

I kinda wrecked my car. Today my dad met me at the auto body shop where the owner and I are now on a first-name basis, since this is the third time this year I’ve had pointless parking-lot fender benders. My dad came so he could lend me his cute yellow Mini-Cooper for a couple […]

My oldest friend in the world is Laura.

She’s not old. By that I mean is that we were best friends from the first day of 7th grade. I am in Piedmont, California right now visiting her (and teaching a class in Oakland Friday). I got this card from her a few weeks ago: “We are friends for life When we’re together the […]

If this doesn’t motivate you, I don’t know what will

So I taught my second class in a week at Dr. Christopher’s in Springville last night. Seems like someone always comes up after a class with a phenomenal story of what happens when you undertake the whole-foods habits I teach. Patricia and Steve Terry (with me below) were the last in line to ask questions […]

In your 60’s looking like this!

So here are a few photos from my class last night in Springville. Thanks to volunteer Bob, who was a trouper showing us how long it takes, and how unpleasant it is, to chew up a couple stalks of kale and chard. That’s about 25% of what you get in a quart of green smoothie […]

When you think Tim McGraw, I hope you think of me

That’s a line from a Taylor Swift song, by the way. I think Tim McGraw has given up the “ninety-nine cent heart attack” he sings about. Somebody on the GSG fanpage says he quit smoking a few years ago. My goodness, he looks ridiculous. I heard he lost 30 lbs for his tour. Not the […]

ObamaCare . . . part 3 of 3

Congress has been wringing its hands over the tragedy of millions of uninsured Americans, for years. The question has been, “How can we pay for all the drugs and surgeries and doctor visits of the Baby Boomers?” How indeed. (And we aren’t even thinking, yet, of the soda generation of obese kids–we’ll worry about that […]

Peru, part 6 with photos

I wrote earlier of a village we discovered with three people living there who are 110 to 120 years old. These are photos of one of the village elders, with the ancient Incan rings she found when she was a child on her hand. The other photo is me with Kynet and Marco, whom I […]
