When Goldenvoice announced the lineup for their Desert Trip, I was mildly intrigued. But my husband, Bob, was obsessed. "We have to do this," he plead...
The Millennial generation (born 1980 - 2000) is coming of age, and many of today's young adults are finding themselves in their first real positions as professionals or on the cusp of starting families.
Why is care commanding more attention now? Even if a family can afford a full-time caregiver (mother or father) at home, volatility in the labor market can keep both parents on the job as a second line of defense.
Do we need to glorify the 60s generation that had all the fun, the clothes, the music, the rebellious plans -- but also carried the weight of being seen as the new hope and the messengers of fresh ideas and modern prosperity? Not at all.
Each generation is different from the one that precedes it. Sometimes these differences are stark -- the era of Eisenhower leading into the Woodstock years, for instance -- and sometimes they are much more subtle. An overlooked way to examine the size of these generational differences is to compare the buying habits of one generation to another.
This week, my grandchildren received a healthy dose of science, technology, engineering, math (STEM) at the California Academy of Science.
There are those who see the third age of life as a new adventure in learning, contributing, engaging and growing.
Move over ping-pong tables, step aside endless boxes of free pizza. If you're a 15- to 20-year-old member of Generation Z, you know that employers sho...
It makes me smile when I hear people say they look in the mirror and see their mother. The other day I heard a man wonder out loud how his dad's hands appeared out of the sleeves of his jacket.

If the thought of going back to college for one day brings up memories solely of being strung out or being hung over, you might want to skip this post. On the other hand, it conjures up one of the most exciting and amazing periods of your life, you are in luck.
Traditionally, living with roommates has been the lifestyle primarily of the young and single, but more and more people in their 50s and beyond are turning to home sharing to ease the high cost of living and reduce the isolation that can occur when older adults live on their own.
It was not until she was age 35 that Holland first entered the 'adult' world, but the minute she did, she felt for the first time ever that she had come home. She loved the freedom, the passion, and the uninhibited expression. She found it inspiring, and she saw opportunities for positive empowerment in every project.

Did anyone mention that the Donald is a grandfather many times over? There have been plenty of presidents who were grandfathers, yet, the questions posed to Hillary were never posed to them. Age must define genders differently.
Bette Davis once said, in her classic no-nonsense way, 'Old age ain't no place for sissies.' She even had a sofa pillow embroidered with the quote for all her guests to see. Having just turned 60 myself, I'm beginning to believe wholeheartedly that Bette was spot-on with her message.
