Today's News



  1. Another great roundup of stories! I clicked through most of them and always seem to find interesting tidbits. Shrimp in the slow cooker? No, thank you. Rice in my closet? I’ll pass. After 4 years of trying to make my custom made shelves look good, I realize photos and treasures just don’t cut it in a designer’s world. The 101 year old still working at Joann’s is not so unusual especially in this economy; in my retirement community many people pick up part time jobs. Maybe they are not 101 but working into your seventies and eighties is becoming more commonplace. Thanks Pam for sharing!

  2. Pam, thank you for the work you do to put these informative articles together. Jaclyn Smith certainly is doing something right! Lots of good information!

  3. The health articles were interesting today. While as a vegetarian I like the idea of having more restaurant options, the article about new foods was focused almost entirely on processed vegan items. While this is better for the planet, they are not the healthiest choices. At least we seem to be moving in a better direction. I also prefer the term “whole food, plant based” as noted in the article. I feel it more accurately describes what I eat, sounds more appetizing, and is less confusing for others who are curious. I also enjoyed the Jaclyn Smith article. She is admirable in her healthy discipline. I’m on a health journey that involves weight loss, and I’m staying motivated in part by reading articles like this.

  4. That is one thing I want to do here, Linda…is motivated all of us…including me, to leave a healthier lifestyle. Thanks for sharing your information.

  5. I look forward to these posts. There is always something that I can enjoy and take away a little information to help me along my way in my 70s.
    Thank you for taking the time and I’m sure sometimes difficult searching, to share with us, all the exciting news that we can all relate to.

  6. Great articles. I read the Jacqueline Smith article and am planning on trying her smoothie, at last a smoothie without a banana(my most hated fruit)…..Have a great rest of the week!!
    I haven’t had a chance to read the other articles, saving for this love the Wednesday roundup

  7. I enjoyed todays articles too. I’m not running off here and there today ( just my early am yoga class) so, at home. It feels good. I need to find new and different gluten free recipes and there they were! Thank you Pam!

  8. I enjoyed the Jaclyn Smith article. My husband is vegan and is very healthy at almost 82. The sunflower article brought tears to my eyes. Thank you for all of the articles.

  9. Many thanks for all of these informative articles. I am, as usual, late to the party. Interesting about seedless watermelon as a treat for doggies! Love it!. Also loved the article about the lady who continues to work at JoAnn’s. I completely agree with her that often what makes or breaks a job are co-workers. I printed the scampi recipe, can’t wait to try it. One thing I am trying to do is start making some Christmas gifts to sort of jump start my fall/holiday seasonal mood, but the fall scented candle is also a great idea.
