A few months ago my wife had the odd idea of going to Colombia for a week to vacation, she had no idea what city to arrive to but she wanted something cold so we chose Bogota. From the moment we arrived we were completely culture shock and impressed by the street performers attempting to earn some money. The must interesting part was finding where to stay. To our surprise there were tourist stations almost everywhere in the middle of the street so we approached one and asked for a list of hotels so we could make our decision. The people were ever so friendly that I am actually planing to visit back sometime for another vacation. The prices of everything were so cheap that we ended spending half of what we had put aside for the vacation on a weekend cruise in Barranquilla.Categories: Vacations | Comments Off | Permalink
I wanted to give a friend a try as a christian dating partner. Trouble was, he was 18 years older than me. Not such a problem as I already considered myself old – on the far side of menopause, so the age was not really a problem. The problem was that he fell asleep at most things we were doing. At movies, at church, at group gatherings, watching TV at his house, and sometimes I was sure he was going to fall asleep driving. Now I just don’t think I am up for babysitting an older person yet. I’m definitely not up for an intimate relationship, as I don’t think he is capable. With five stints and a belly that says, “I love to eat way too much,” I don’t think it’s a good idea. Let’s just be friends.Categories: Religion | Comments Off | Permalink
I was always against prescription medicine, and when faced with the problem of incontinence, I had to find an alternative option for my mother. She was approaching her early seventies, and started noticing the problem when I would take her for walks at night. We first talked to a physician about controlling the problem naturally, where we were made aware of adult nappies for just this purpose.
Not only wear they without side effect, they also were much less cheaper than the prescription option on the market today. having lived a long life free of prescription drugs, my mother was bound and determined not to give up her fight against them now. Being able to talk longer walks with my mother has given us more precious time with each other as she ages, without the frustrating situations that occur when the bladder does not hold the waste it is intended to.Categories: Senior Living | Comments Off | Permalink
Often times as we age, our hearing starts to deteriorate. We do not even notice it sometimes, until one day we realize we cannot hear our family and friends talking to us. Or we may even start to realize we have to crank up the radio or television. We then breakdown and go for a hearing test, only to find, we are in need of some form of hearing assistance. This is usually just a simple Manchester hearing aids. These devices must be made special for you and your specific needs. There are several types on the market, some that are almost invisible. Which ever type you choose, you want it to function properly and be comfortable, and most important, you want to be able to hear well with it, and catch up on what you have been missing. On occasion it may be necessary for someone to get surgery to correct their hearing loss, but not likely. As soon as you notice any change in your hearing, get to the doctor.Categories: Old Age | Comments Off | Permalink
