Next week's White House Conference on Aging (WHCOA) seems destined to be little more than an exercise in benign neglect of the growing economic problems of today's and tomorrow's seniors.

All the Time in the World?

If we cling to old definitions of a future no one can pretend to predict, we are still going to age. But we will have been complicit and ultimately powerless by refusing to choose how we will age in the 21st Century. It's time we all thought about that.

The Age of Stupid

For me, the way out is to remain very much connected to the word at large, but to also have created my own rainbow colored bubble, that I can happily step into at will and enjoy the true beauty of life beyond idiotic ideologies propagated by corporations and institutions that prey on our vulnerabilities in order to keep cashing in. Is that good enough?

Sherman Yellen | Posted 03.25.2015 | Comedy
Sherman Yellen

Teeth, yes teeth. It is a fact of life that as one ages you need close and loving friends - but for many - like me - you have one terrible, implacable enemy - your teeth. Over time, one by one, mine have rebelled or decided to crack, abandon me, and abscond with my cash - far worse than the person who picked my pocket last week.

Another year. This year's resolutions looked pretty much the same as last year and the year before that so I've resolved to stop making New Year's resolutions.

What You Should Never Call An Older Person

Eva Moon

I mean it. Stop it right now. I know you meant it as a compliment, but it's not. When people call me 'young at heart' they mean something like active, adventurous, creative, involved. How remarkable for someone who is, well, (whispered) old!

That's a Good Question!

If you're in your 50s you've probably noticed that your body is changing. Perhaps your metabolism isn't what it used to be, or you may not have so much energy, or something is niggling you that didn't used to.

The Age At Which Men Officially Become Grumpy

I was recently interviewed on BBC Radio 2 about grumpiness (much to the chagrin of my husband who believes he is far more qualified to discuss the subject). The presenter was curious to discover at what age men become grumpy and if grumpiness is confined to older men.
