Reinventing the Tonight Show

by Carissa    •    February 22, 2014

Can you feel that? There's been a shift in the winds of late night television and it's blowing in a breath of fresh air.

We all have our memories of the Tonight Show. For some of us, this means watching with our parents until they finally tell us to go to bed, and we begrudgingly listen. Others of us have watched from the very beginning. Either way, it's safe to say this show is an icon and that's not about to change.

Monday, February 17th, 2014 marked the day when the Tonight Show transitioned from a twenty-two year run with Jay Leno (give or take seven odd months while Conan O'Brien was on board), to the multi-talented comedian Jimmy Fallon.

“Senior Moments” May Just Be…Moments

by Krasna    •    February 18, 2014

Most of the people we know who are past a certain age make more or less frequent reference, often with a shrug and a rueful laugh, to having "senior moments." The term 'senior moment' itself is so common that we tend to apply it to every memory lapse, even tiny, ordinary ones. It's become a reflex, like saying 'please' or 'bless you' even when we're alone. Anyone ever bump into a chair at home and say 'excuse me?' Bernard Carey joked in the New York Times, "The story is familiar...for anyone who is over 50 and, having finally learned to live fully in the moment, discovers it's a senior moment."

In a Texas A&M study, researchers asked a group that averaged 75 years old how old they felt, both before and after administering brief memory tests. Subjective age declined nearly five years, from 58.6 to 63.1.

A Spoonful of Sugar

It makes the medicine go down, right?

And that's not all the delightful things sugar can do"a good thing, since we eat over 50 pounds of it (24kg) each year.

There's plenty of evidence that a moderate amount of sugar is quite a good source of energy, and it makes our skin plump and glowing as well. The sugar industry reminds us that it's much better for us than other kinds of sweeteners. So maybe a little isn't a bad thing.

And let's not forget that you can't really have good chocolate without getting some sugar...

If people actually turned blue when they were depressed it would certainly make diagnosis of this condition easier. Authorities differ as to the origin of the phrase "feeling blue" - possibly it goes back to the 16th century - but few would disagree that clinical depression is a serious disorder. Thankfully medical science has moved on, and can now offer effective shelter from its symptoms.

Home Safety Tips with a Twist

by Jane R. LeBlanc    •    February 6, 2014

These safety tips are great for seniors and younger folk, alike. You can never be too safe around the house. Now, a night on the town? That’s a different story.

• Make sure all rugs in the house have a non-slip backing. Have a rug a dear friend gave you that you secretly hate? Now you have a reason to stow it away!

• Install grab bars in the bathroom by the toilet and tub. They’ll provide stability in these often-slippery areas (and serve as a great place to drape wet pantyhose).
