Homecare, assisted living, personal care homes; buzzwords zinging around our collective family homes lately.
I'm in that magical category where my kids are leaving home, getting married, having babies and my in-law's health is deteriorating. Doctor's visits are becoming increasingly more frequent as health issues become more complex.
About a year ago I began to notice a memory gap exists from the time my parent's would leave their doctor's office till the time they… Continue

As anyone who knows me will attest to, I'm not a big fan of musicals. I've always found it slightly grating and totally unnatural for actors to spontaneously break into song in the middle of a dialogue or monologue. So I would admit to being totally unqualified to being able to judge these kinds of performances objectively.
Fortunately, you don't need my recommendation to see a Tony Award-winning musical - it's already got credibility, and the Canadian production is very well… Continue

It's been super busy here lately at ZoomerMedia Limited (Formerly Fifty-Plus.Net Inc.) and guess what? We just popped the cork on the new 50plus.com
website, which launched at 3:30pm E.T. on Thursday August 21, 2008.
For sure it is the best version of the site. Ever.
For those of you not familiar with the story of our website's evolution, it's a good study. Anyway we launched at the… Continue

Oh, what a struggle to go back to work after a holiday! I have so enjoyed the lack of deadlines, the leisurely cups of coffee, all the Solitaire games! However, I am looking forward to the excitement that 45 teenagers bring to my life. Youth flows into my classroom and my soul every day. So back to work I go, and thank God for the struggle.

So wonderful to see our men's rowing team (eights) take the gold medal. It was a brilliant performance and showed grit and determination and hard work and is a wonderful inspiration for the rest of our athletes participating. Also, Canada could take note of the Japanese women in the women's triathalon as an example of what can happen when there is proper funding for the athletes.
Congratulations, also to another phenomenal athlete-MIchael Phelps-on winning 8 gold medals in swimming to… Continue

Those of us born in 1954 are more likely than the general poipulace to speak French, and we’re one third more likely to live in Quebec. Back in the 50s, before the quiet revolution, Quebec still had one of the highest birthrates in the developed world.
We’re especially likely to live in communities smaller than 1000 people or rural areas
After French, we’re more likely than most to speak Italian, Ukrainian, Portuguese, and Polish, which is just evidence of the wave of… Continue

I'm a statistician and demographer. I'm also 54 years old, being born in 1954. There's something special about this year, when those of us born in 1954 celebrate our 54th birthday. We were born at the very height of the baby boom (1946 to 1964), 1954 being the year when more babies were born in Canada per capita than any year before or since (28.5 per thousand of population).
I'm going to be tracking the progress of those of us in the middle of the baby boom. I call us Mid-Boomers,… Continue

I feel honored to be admitted to this web site - since I am not Canadian.
I see, however, that several people from other countries have also joined the Zoomers. That's great!! Maybe if these international countries would encourage more citizens to communicate one-on-one, there would be fewer international problems.
There was an Japanese newspaper that had a statement on the masthead saying something like 'through communication we will have international… Continue

It came in the mail. Another free book. This one is from HarperCollins, and it's an uncorrected Proof of an upcoming publication. I get to read it, and write a review. I did this once last year for McClelland & Stewart. That book was The Calling, by Inger Wolfe, and was available for sale by March of 2008. That's a good book, by the way, so if you haven't read it, go find it.
The new one is called Everything Under the Sky, by Matilde… Continue

I sent an e-mail about what I did on Saturday to a cyber friend, and he suggested I add it to my blog. Well, it doesn't fit into the other one, as it's subject specific, so I'll put it in here, and see how that goes.
I went to a farmers market Saturday, in North Gower. I got 2 zucchini (one
green and one
yellow), a green pepper, a purple cauliflower (the last one they had, and a
bag of mixed greens. I also got some seed beads and… Continue

I've just had a birthday, and celebrated with a brunch at my Moms house. She worked so hard at 81 to make it special...and suddenly, one week later to the exact time, I was at the funeral home saying good bye...how sad; how crazy is this.

I like to use multi billion dollar military satellites to hunt for Tupper Ware in the woods.
For those who don't know what I'm talking about, it's called Geocaching.
Since so many people now own a GPS unit, many of them have hidden "treasures" throughout the world and then posted the co ordinates online at www.geocaching.com for others to find. So far I've found close to 60 of these....all within the past year.
It's a great hobby as I like to walk and I love to… Continue

The greatest stumbling block to achieving anything of importance in your life is circumstances. We let circumstances get us off the hook when we should be giving it everything we've got. More dreams are shattered and goals lost because of circumstances than any other single factor.
How often have you caught yourself saying, "I would like to do or have this but I can't because...?" Whatever follows "because" is the circumstance.
Successful people use circumstances to catapult… Continue
