Don't Tell Them You're a Senior, until you check the price!

I thought that if there was a choice between Adult fare and Senior fare that Senior would be cheaper. It all depends. At the aquarium yes. Adopting a pet, yes. For riding the bus, yes. But for basic transportation like train and Greyhound bus rides – NO!

I was planning a trip by Greyhound to NYC this weekend. I’ve been spoiled by planning a month in advance and getting the $2 round trip ticket for the first person…

Bus Driver Giving Me Dirty Looks

I was waiting at the bus stop at Market and 10th.  The bus (my bus) did not slow down.  I stepped up to the curb. I waved.  The bus driver sped right on by.

 

I’m not supposed to run with my replacement hip.  But I have an exemption – I am allowed to run to catch a bus.  The light was red at the next bus stop, so I ran.  The bus stopped.  It let passengers on.  I arrived just as the driver was closing the door.  It’s 15…

Center for Productive Longevity Urges People to Shed Negative Stereotypes About Older Age

As people continue to live longer and retire earlier, the term “Third-Stage Adulthood” has more relevance than ever before. Referring to people 62-85 years old, this stage of life is chock-full of senior workers who are qualified and ready to continue working after the traditional retirement age of 65 or sooner. This means that there is a large and growing talent pool with experience, expertise, seasoned judgment, and proven performance (referred to by CPL…

Spotlight on Entrepreneurship Opportunities for Baby Boomers

By: William K Zinke

Founder & President of the Center for Productive Longevity

 

All readers may be familiar with ESP–extrasensory perception.  I propose that we focus on EESP–experience, expertise, seasoned judgment and proven performance. This is what Baby Boomers can provide versus their younger counterparts. I like the old saying: “Good judgment comes from experience, and experience comes from bad judgment.”

 

Quoting from the Kauffman Index of…

Seniors Trade Rocking Chairs for Rackets

More than ever, seniors are discovering the athlete within. Since the early 1990s, total participation (and participation by those over age 45) has grown in 21 sports and fitness activities. Note that these sports aren't for sissies: basketball, bowling, mountain and rock climbing, walking, exercise with equipment, running and jogging, working out at a club, tackle football, golf, hiking,…

The King's Speech

During my Christmas holidays I spent some time visiting my father who is in a senior’s residence in Toronto. He is 89 years old and struggling with many health issues. He was talking about his life and reminiscing about old times when he started to recite this poem:

"I said to the man who stood at the gate of the year

'Give me a light that I may tread safely into the unknown.'

And he replied,

'Go into the darkness and put your hand into the hand of God

That shall…

Aging pluses and minuses

There are some disadvantages to aging and one of the most common is a weakened memory system. A blank can pop up at any moment, such as a person's name, and can be embarrassing unless you have given up getting embarrassed. There is one thing that I constantly forget; I can't remember just what but it's no big deal anyway. A doctor told me that this is a common problem as you get older, offered up some suggestions and concluded that I was actually OK - for a guy my age. But I'm not too sure…
