Today’s News for women over 50

Today's news

Happy summer Wednesday, friends!  It is time for your personal weekly newsletter…Today’s News for Women Over 50.

I curate lifestyle news for women over 50 in one place so it is easier and you can access information that may be helpful.

All of my categories are meant to keep this optimistic and encouraging.

But, occasionally I run across information that is not so optimistic, but may be information you need to know.

Please tell me…would you like a NEED TO KNOW category added even if the information is not necessarily “good news.”

I run across articles like this often and think we all need to know what is in it, but it doesn’t fit in my current divisions.

Let me know…do you want to see a NEED TO KNOW category in Today’s News??

For now, let’s get started with what I have found for you today…….lots pf summer recipes…so we begin there….

  1. Good morning Pamela – yes, a NEED T KNOW category would be helpful. Thank-you for curating the news for us. Very helpful.

  2. Well, now I want to find a neighbor with a barn :). I’m ok with (not excited about) a Need to Know if it’s more health-related and non-political, and if the health news is from a reliable source (not the supplement industry). I do hope it’s infrequent, as I read daily and find that information on my “travels” through other sources. I’m here for fashion, like-minded women, and fun. Thanks for asking; I appreciate that.

  3. I’m definitely in favor of “need to know” articles in your Wednesday news. I always enjoy your articles, and realize it must take a good bit of your time to curate what you send us. But, we certainly may also need articles you think are appropriate. I always end up going down one rabbit hole or another, and spend hours reading over different subjects…some I enjoy, and others I need to know. Thank you for what you do.

  4. And thanks for telling me what you think…I always want to provide some fun!

  5. I would enjoy a ‘need to know’ section, particularly about health, safety, travel issues. You do such a fantastic job curating for us; I trust your judgement for non-controversial and timely topics. Since you label your content groupings. It would be easy for those not interested to skip over. Thank you!

  6. I’d love to see information on books – new releases and reviews. There are many bloggers who focus a great deal on travel topics. I don’t think we need another one. That doesn’t mean I’m not interested in your Alaska cruise. That’s an entirely different thing as you’ll be sharing your personal experiences which for an armchair traveler like me is a lot more interesting than reading about what to pack for a month in Europe. Thanks for all you do.

  7. Hi Kathie, I don’t travel often, but I do cover the few trips I take. Today, I was just talking about in regards to this post with the news articles. Thank you for joining in…your comment is interesting because so many do write about travel.

  8. Just a note: when I added in travel, I didn’t mean for you to become a travel blogger. I only meant if there are safety issues or changes in airline or other travel policies. I am, however, interested in your personal travel experiences. You don’t ever overdo your info. You give us just enough.

  9. Hi, Pam, thank you for asking about Need to Know. I have to say I am on the fence about it. I hate to see you do more work and then decide to skip it every week. I read a lot of news sources and am currently doing an online wellness thing and some online classes, so I don’t know yet if I’d read something new. Maybe once a month vs once a week?

  10. I love Today’s News for Women and think a “Need To Know” category is a wonderful idea!
