Today’s News for Women Over 50

Today's News

Hello friends!  It is Wednesday and time for Today’s News for Women Over 50.

For anyone new, this is the day I compile lifestyle news for women over 50 into one location to keep you easily informed.

I look at media around the globe from blogs to news outlets and try to select what I believe will be of interest to our age group.

This is light and fun lifestyle news…does not often include the heavy headlines.

Today’s recipes are curated with Passover and Easter celebrations in mind and any type of entertaining.

So, get your morning beverage…a cozy spot…and let’s learn together from Today’s News.

  1. Good morning Pamela. Thank you for your blog, I start my day off looking at a very few blogs, and yours is always one of them. Today’s version of the news seemed particularly interesting, reading about Iris Apfel and her husband and career was inspiring. I also enjoyed the story of the returned wedding dress, I am a Hamilton girl but did not know this heart-warming story. I always look forward to learning something new from this curated collection of articles you provide.

  2. I truly enjoy your links to the different articles on Wednesdays. But today I chuckled a bit when I clicked on 14 Spring Dress Styles French Women Rely on to Look Elegant. I am wondering if you will be modeling all those styles for us anytime soon. LOL Have a great day!! And thanks for the smiles you created this beautiful morning.

  3. Loved two of today’s articles- the Carrot Cake story (history plus) And the story of the two sisters(each over 100 years old). Interesting!
    I’ll haveto share with my book club members!

  4. I always think it is interesting for us to see what is happening with fashion! You are right though the majority of those styles most of us would not wear. As a grandmother I like to know what younger girls are being encouraged to wear.

  5. I have been reading and enjoying this blog for a couple of years. My name somehow got taken off your mailing list. I have signed up numerous times to renew my subscription and it has failed. I have to go online and download it myself. Please help me correct this problem. Thank you.

  6. Pamela, I’m enjoying all the articles today, on yet another rainy morning in California……

  7. I’m usually so busy reading all of the “news” that I forget to comment, but I just wanted to say thank you and tell you how much I enjoy it every week! I know that it’s a lot of work for you but it is much appreciated!

  8. I was surprised at how many of the 100 simple things I already do. It seems that I’m on the right track. I definitely want to check out Melissa Gilbert’s Modern Prairie.

  9. I just discovered your website and I love it. And thank you for so many more links.
