I give workshops on Health and Wellness to seniors. I also mentor new facilitators, review, and update workshops, and train workshop facilitators on audience engagement. In my spare time, I read, write, play golf, badly and enjoy life.

Canada by the Numbers for 2019">">
To mark the country's 152nd birthday, here is a bit of trivia 鈥 by the numbers 鈥 about Canada. Some we can be proud of, others we could improve.


The United States of Aging Survey National Findings 2">">

The United States of Aging Survey National Findings 1">">
While many American seniors are on good financial ground today, they have mixed feelings about their future prospects.


Social Isolation
Social isolation can generally be recognized by others observing a person鈥檚 relationships, while loneliness is a personal experience.


When we find inspiration
Life is not perfect, but as my friends say it is better than the alternative.


I don't usually post writing from others but this was sent to me by a cousin and I thought I would share.


Some bad puns for January


Fun with English
The past, present, and future walked into a bar. It was tense.


Rock and Roll Never Forgets
But for every rock and roller who did not survive that turbulent time in our culture, we can look to great performers who did survive, overcame their addictions and went on to continue to give great music to the world decade after decade.


Who is in your circle?
I once read that we have a circle of influence (friends, family and acquaintances) of about 200 people. I am not sure if that number is true or not, but it is, I think, pretty close to the reality of our life.


Zen and mindfulness
Life exists only in the present moment, to lose the presence is to lose a life," says Vietnamese Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh.


Pondering idle thoughts: Bad decisions make good stories.
How the heck are you supposed to fold a fitted sheet?


Advice on Ageing
Laugh. Laugh A LOT. Laugh at everything. Remember, you are one of the lucky ones. You managed to have a life, a long one. Many never get to this age, never get to experience a full life. But you did. So what鈥檚 not to laugh about? Find the humour in your situation.


Bloggers and Bias
Writing a daily blog can be demanding even if you don't have an audience. I find the writing to be challenging but it gives me an interest and a reason to do some research into areas, I would not have had a chance to explore.


All slang is a metaphor, and all metaphor is poetry.
Being an older person, a senior or a grandparent means that we should first try to understand the poetry and metaphors of our lives before we pass these metaphors on to our grandchildren, so they can continue the dream.


Issues for Seniors聽
The following is from my Blog, I am a Sonic Boomer not a Senior, where I have been, for the past six years, discussing issues facing Boomers.
