In the latest issue of AARP Bulletin, an article titled “What’s Next” details all of the ways technology is racing ahead of what human brain […]

Cheap Genes

March 3, 2017


    Thanks to AARP Magazine, Life in the Boomer Lane is told that her wide swings between thriftiness and excess can be blamed entirely on genetics.

7 Quick Steps to Better Sex

December 15, 2011


AARP has come out with a guide to “7 Quick Steps to Better Sex.”  This is important for two reasons.  One is that the steps are “quick.” If they weren’t, we might get caught in mid-air, forgetting why the chandelier is at eye level and why there is a naked person lying on the bed […]

Medicare: Uncovered

November 29, 2011


Medicare, the federal system of health care for folks over age 65, comes at a really bad time in our lives, since at the exact moment it arrives, all available brain cells are either busy looking for car keys, permanently asleep on the job, or wondering if we have just baked the cooking shears into […]

Sex, More or Less

October 29, 2011

AARP, the folks who used to be scary until we woke up one morning and realized we were one of them, continues to be concerned about the likelihood of us embarrassing ourselves because we have inadvertently lived long enough to remember the day rocks were invented.  They present a list of Don’ts by world-renowned author Jacqueline Mitchard.  […]
