Back To School: She Spent The Summer Binge Watching

Laurie Levy | August 28, 2016 | Fifty
A mother walks into the living room where her pre-teen daughter sprawled on the couch, glued to the TV. Mom is carrying a newly purchased backpack, and states smugly, "She spent the summer binge-watching. Soon she'll be binge-studying." Why do I hate this commercial? Let me count the ways.

The Key To Leaving Stress Behind In Retirement

Michael D. Shaw | August 28, 2016 | Fifty
"Most people focus on the 70 percent they will keep, not the spending they will give up. They aren't prepared for the changes that will be required in their lifestyles. When they eventually are confronted by the specifics they have to cut, they are unhappy."

Iran Constitution's article 146 stipulates "The establishment of any kind of foreign military base in Iran, even for peaceful purposes, is forbidden."

Nixon and Trump, Birds of a Feather

Pete McCloskey | August 28, 2016 | Politics
I remember the words of Nixon's chief Domestic Advisor, John Ehrlichman, at the Safford Penitentiary in Arizona. Asked about the man he had faithfully served in the White House for five years, Ehrlichman replied: "I really never got to know him." Who today can truthfully say they know the real Donald Trump?

What Women Should No Longer Wear After Age 50

Andrea Pflaumer | August 27, 2016 | Fifty
There's a lot of ink these days in the blogosphere about how older women should be able to 'wear whatever the f--- they want.' Well, of course, I applaud the sentiment and the theory. But in practice, for me at least, there are some things in my closet that have outlived their usefulness.

My Mother's Dog Speaks The Truth

Janie Emaus | August 27, 2016 | Fifty
I don't speak Canine. But apparently my 91-year-old mother does. She is closer to her yapping beagle, Chipper, than anyone in the world. She walks him twice a day, cuddles with him on her couch, feeds him from the dinner table and worries about him constantly.
