  1. I wasn’t able to watch the video on the 92 year old Girl Scout, but loved the story….you go girl ? Do what you love and love what you do!! Speaking of love, I am a big mustard fan and just may have to try it with my scrambled eggs. Thanks for the articles.

  2. Great informative articles as usual, Pam. Thanks for all that you do for us! My husband eats mustard with everything and he’s the healthiest senior I know!

  3. Wish I could see the 50 over 50 show. So often sexuality remains the way women over 50 are portrayed, the primary examples being J-Lo and Cher. I appreciate that aspect of women over 50 but am much more interested in ordinary women who are leading ordinary lives. Perhaps the exhibit will find a broader audience. Thanks for curating these stories.

    1. You are welcome Jane! I would love to see that show and hope I can inspire someone in my city to do the same.

  4. I wish I was close enough to see the 50 Over 50 show and would love to have the opportunity to participate in something like that! As for retirement age, I’m so grateful that my husband and I were able to retire young. If we’d waited until we were in our 60s, we would have missed so much of what were able to do in those first few years. Me being diagnosed with an incurable cancer at 61 would have robbed us of that. I know early retirement isn’t for everyone, but for those who are able and who have solid ideas of what they want to do and accomplish in retirement, I highly recommend it.
