Editor’s Note: What’s Hot and Happening in June


Welcome to June! It’s drifting into the 100 degree range in Dallas, Texas this coming week. Trust me, we are not looking forward to a long summer of this! But we have plenty of distractions ahead. While things are heating up outside, we are working on some hot topics for the month.

We have a new contributor, a gerontologist, who will be contributing monthly and she’s going to focus on aging vibrantly. (Who doesn’t want to do that?)

We interviewed actress and former model Angie Everhart to find out how she’s doing after battling cancer, and what’s next for her.

Other topics for June include the benefits and fun of traveling solo after 50, the latest report on the effectiveness of the Nordic diet, the use of probiotics to prevent Alzheimer’s, which companies appreciate older workers, reinventing yourself professionally, and the fitness craze – hula hooping! Of course, we’ll be covering fashion and beauty, too, so we have something for everyone.

One more big change is happening in June. We have heard from subscribers that the Thursday email has so many articles they want to read, its overwhelming. In response, we are going to spread those articles out into three short emails each week. You’ll have an option to stick with the one email each week if you prefer. Watch for the first email and adjust your preferences as desired. We don’t want to lose you as a subscriber! Please email us if you have any questions about how to adjust your settings.
