Mick Jagger, the brash, wriggling frontman of The Rolling Stones, dispels all expectations of a 70-year-old man when he performs. It may be a shock to even Mick that he and his fellow senior citizens are still not only performing with incredible flash, but selling out arenas at their age..

Seductive as that may seem, and I know that as you read the title of this blog you must have allowed your mind to wander far and wide into areas I never intended when I put fingers to keyboard and typed that heading out. Yes, for some of you that means a variety of activities of which I have ..

02/17/2014 21:28:37 PM
Do you love movies, or perhaps you prefer to call them “films?” Makes no difference to me. Do you love them whatever you call them? I do and I’ve always loved them except when they tried to smother us with all those all-singing, all-dancing, everyone goes to night clubs in evenin..

I have been roaming this planet for nigh on 60 years and have yet to feel that anything is really too much, or I am too old to grasp the latest in culture or technology.

I'm very pleased to introduce my guest today. If you don't already know Nancy, you can find out more about her at her blog. What I've learned is that besides looking way too young to have a son in college, she's a gentle, thoughtful, and generous human being with a talent for writing suspense. Wh..
