Important Information on Staying Healthy and Enjoying Life
Let’s start with the bad news…. Eventually we ALL will reach a point where we cannot drive ourselves where we need to go, when we need to be there.
The good news is that if there was ever a time in history to be facing personal driving limitations, this is it! There are now many safe, convenient and economical alternatives to owning and driving your own car. Particularly in the area we live! CLICK HERE to view a summary of how Villagers can get where they need to be when they can’t drive and help from friends and family is not available.
WOMEN: TIPS FOR GOOD HEALTH IN LATER LIFE
As they age, women are more likely than men to have chronic physical and mental health problems. To help stay healthy, the American Geriatrics Society’s Health in Aging Foundation recommends the following vaccinations:
Flu shot every year
Two pneumonia vaccinations
They also recommend:
Take calcium and vitamin D
Exercise, including weight bearing exercise and strength training
Use sun screen year round
Challenge your mind

Get the new shingles vaccine if you are 50 or older
Shingrix is more than 90% effective at preventing shingles and long-term nerve pain.
Holiday Eating with Confidence
The holiday season is full of festivities, family celebrations and tasty treats! For many, this time of year means two months of fretting about indulging on unhealthy foods and the effect on their body. Learn how to adjust your mindset to worry less and walk away with strategies to enjoy traditional meals mindfully as well as create new health-giving delicious recipes to satisfy your taste buds.

1 Never slap a man who's chewing tobacco.
2 Never kick a cow chip on a hot day.
3 There are two theories to arguing with a
woman. Neither works.
4 Never miss a good chance to shut up.
5 Always drink upstream from the herd.
A bookseller was conducting a market survey, and asked a woman: "Which book has helped you most in your life?"
The woman replied, "My husband’s check book!!"
ABOUT GROWING OLDER …
Eventually you will reach a point when you stop lying about your age and start bragging about it.
The older we get, the fewer things seem worth waiting in line for.
Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me. I want people to know 'why' I look this way. I've traveled a long way, and some of the roads weren't paved
When you are dissatisfied and would like to go back to your youth, think of algebra
You know you are getting old when everything either dries up or leaks.
I don't know how I got over the hill without getting to the top.
One of the many things no one tells you about aging is that it’s such a nice change from being young.
One must wait until evening to see how splendid the day has been.

And, finally ~ If you don't learn to laugh at trouble, you won't have anything to laugh at when you're old.
