Notable Quote:

"Although media attention to elders has increased (thanks to the oldest boomers hitting 60) in the past three years, they still don’t get it right. It mostly lurches between that decline, debility and disease focus and its opposite - happy-talk denial of the realities of aging without stopping anywhere in the middle, the place where truth can most frequently be found."

I love the article by Steven Downs called "The Ten Things Everyone Should Know" online http://www.education-world.com/a_tech/tech/tech236.shtml

I wrote about it in conjunction with a blog on a group of women call the SLAATY GIRLS. (Still Learning After All These Years.)

Take a look. I think you will like it.
