Vietnam – The Forgotten Cemetery

Monday, October 19th, 2015   7:34 pm |  Category:   Life, Relationships   |  2 Comments  | Author:     bio

“Vietnam was what we had instead of happy childhoods”. (MICHAEL HERR)   Editor’s Note: The following is a post about one man’s journey for answers about life, death, love and war. Although lengthy we believe it is well worth reading the entire post.   When I was a child growing-up in my native Edinburgh during …more

Couple resolves relationship issues in retirement

Wednesday, July 22nd, 2015   5:01 pm |  Category:   Finance, Relationships, Retirement locations   |  Add Comment  | Author:     bio

I’ve never believed in the idea of sacrificing now to plan ahead so I could retire. I thought I would just work until the day I died. I’ve always practiced “live for today,” while Alan (my mate) did some of that, but he, a stockbroker, practiced what he preached, and prepared for retirement.   Alan …more

Cook, Laundryman and Nurse

The doctor walked swiftly towards me with purpose and resolve. His olive colored surgical mask hung around his neck and a similar colored scrub hat covered the top of his head.

In an aging society, I’m particularly conscious of the sayings we use to describe old age. Some of those sayings take a bit of examination to find …more

I always thought I was a good mom. I attended every teacher/parent conference; endured freezing cold, blistering hot, and life-threatening thunderstorms just to watch soccer/baseball games; stayed up all hours of the night finishing last-minute (they said) homework projects; and did all other ups and downs a parent is supposed to do.  I adored my …more

Every year about this time, families all over the world get together to share the holidays. For many, it is a great time for memories and catching up, reconnecting with family members seeing the grandchildren as they grow, welcoming new people into the family and so on.   Unfortunately there are thousands of other families …more
