Been out of commission for awhile and just back into to this site. I am looking for Seniors that want to share their healthy lifestyle stories on a weekly podcast that I do called Hey! Hey! Lighten Up! Live Healthy, Live Longer!! If you or anyone you know that is interested in partaking of this please let me know.....interviews are done over the phone, Skype, or in person if close by and is just a conversation between us, so no lights, cameras, etc.. Looking forward to hearing from you!
Hi Murray - thanks very much. I'll try to keep the blog updated with hopefully interesting stuff. I get a teeny commission for the Amazon products sold there which helps cover the bills.
With regard to being selfish. The best description I've heard is "doing something for yourself and hurting others in the process". So I don't think your enjoyment of golf and Florida qualifies. :-)
I fully endorse the enjoyment of life - especially as we get older. (I'll be 60 in January). We've earned it!
Ted - great to read your blog and see some activity in this group. I am 70 years old and the start of the Boomer generation.
I started at a full time job, when I was 18 and started a family the next year 19. I have worked all my life and still do to this day.
Am I a little selfish - yes I am - I have a nice home in Canada and a winter home in Florida. I play golf and enjoy my life.
I belong to three organizations - that are tied to charities. Also support three national charities - so not 100% selfish.
We are accused of being a selfish generation. So here are some ideas about why we may be so. It's a tough accusation to deal with, and needs some understanding.
Silly me, just had to read .
Good news Carol... you didn't miss the contest, it goes until June 2014... :)
Just decided to join the group . I am from the east coast ald live in a small community about 20 minutes outside Moncton, New Brunswick. I have lived in this community all my life and have no plans to leave.
My passion is travel and I love photography. Sorry I missed your photo contest.
PHOTO CONTEST & 4 MIN. INSPIRATIONAL FILM
HEART PRINTS: Be the LOVE; be the MIRACLE
A study done in Vancouver, British Columbia determined that the #1 affliction affecting the city's residents is LONELINESS. The purpose of the HEART PRINTS: Be the LOVE; be the MIRACLE film is to remind people to reach out to others. As a way of further encouraging community, there is a PHOTO CONTEST at the end of the video called "Leave Your Heart Print."
There are 3 CASH PRIZES of $500 each and multiple prizes donated by sponsors which can be viewed along with the CONTEST GUIDELINES at http://www.heartmindwisdom.com. The contest runs until June 1, 2014 and photos submitted to date are available for viewing at http://pinterest.com/kindnessiskey/.
Our hope is that, around the globe, contest entrants will create heart shapes to remind others to continually reach out in love, hope, peace and kindness.
FYI: There's info on the film actors under "About" on YouTube. The song "PEACE" is written and performed by RANJ SINGH. It's available through iTunes or at http://www.ranjsingh.com. Video produced, filmed and edited by VOLKAN GURCU of FORGE OF VULCAN PRODUCTIONS.
I really like the cohousing community, especially the way Iris Kairow Murray describes her community. The neighbor where I've lived for 10 years is like a revolving door, In they come, out they go. Nobody stay longer than 3 years..'sometimes I don't even get to introduce myself before they are gone. Miss the small town flavor of some suburbs..actually I miss small town living.
The design of our cohousing community will allow for individual privacy combined with the benefits of living in a community where people know and interact with their neighbours.
Environmentally sensitive design with a pedestrian orientation is a high value. A large common green space area would be also central to our community, and we hope to grow some of our own food.
Our homes will be centred around a community building where we share services, such as a workshop, music room, exercise studio, guest rooms or library. This common space will the heart of our community – a place to periodically share cultural activities, meals and significant events. www.greensong.ca
