Still crazy after all these years. Attending the 2008 AARP national convention, a place for self improvement for seniors
December 01, 2016
So there my partner Greta and I were last Saturday night, in a front-of-the-stage mosh pit made up of 50, 60, 70 and 80-year-olds, dancing to Paul Simon and his 7-piece band playing, "Graceland," in the Washington, D.C. Convention Center.
The Simon concert was the final happening of the AARP's annual three-day life@50+ National Event & Expo, which Greta and I attended. Attending these events can lead to self improvement and a lot of fun.
I was on an Internet dating panel called "Love at first click." The ratio of women to men in the audience was about 25-to-one. And yet, one couple who met right after my talk, made plans to go on a date that night. One of our members, Judy from Baltimore, was in the audience.
Senior Exercise. Keep the body moving
August 26, 2016
Last week, I asked what Champs do to exercise. Today, we include what 11 women and five men do to keep fit.
Jessica, Oregon, "I'm 60 and weigh the same that I did at 18. The sand has shifted some though! Twice a week, I work out at a gym. I spend 30 minutes there and lift weights and use the elliptical machine. I still work full time that fortunately has a mix of walking and desk work. Five days a week, I use a 10-minute exercise DVD as part of my morning routine. I just move around a lot, everyday."
