What's Age Got To Do With It?
By Dr. Sanjay Gupta

Why do we grow old? What’s happening to our bodies with the passage of time? And at what age does a person officially become old? Those are some of the many questions that came to my mind when we started working on this season.

"Are "Cash" Offers
For Homes Legit?"

By Evelyn Preston,
The Money Lady

I’m sure that, like me, many longtime homeowners receive regular mailings offering to buy their homes, “as is,” no realtors, commissions, inspections, fixes, hassles or time frame.

Not for me, we may think; no fast talker is going to trick me out of my many years of accumulated equity.

I know what
my house is worth…sorta…and I’ll bet I’m sitting on a pile of gold when I sell!


Senior Shelter Dog Brings Love To Senior Couple

By Karen Zamel 

Making the decision to foster and maybe even adopt a pet takes time but it’s time well spent.

Fostering and/or adopting can be life changing for a person and a pet.

It’s literally a life-saving decision at a time when shelters are bursting at the seams, scrambling to avoid euthanasia and calling loudly for help from the community.

Senior pets, who make perfect companions for seniors, are especially at risk.


Tennis Racquet To Surgeon's Scalpel

The Dual Passions And Journey Of Dr. Gerald Sydorak, M.D

By Dr. Gerald Sydorak

I was born in Krakow, Poland during WW II. Luckily, it was one of a few major Eastern European cities that was not destroyed by the Germans or Russians.

It still remains a pristine historical city. My grandfather, Michael Sydorak, had come to the U.S. in 1911 prior to WW I.

He remained here until the major depression of 1929 at which time he returned to Eastern Poland (what is now Western Ukraine).

The bank does not take ownership of your home; they simply extend a loan to you.

Q: Do my children/family members lose their inheritance?

No, a borrower may designate an heir of their choosing.The heir(s) will inherit the home after the last surviving borrower passes away.

Why Is Physical Activity Important?

Our body is made to
do physical activity.

The more we move, the more we benefit our health, strength and physical function.

The greater the intensity of our physical activity, the more calories we burn.

Calorie values also vary depending on the intensity of the activity.

Time Does Not Stand Still

Life is a task that we do ourselves every day.

When you look... it's already six in the afternoon; when you look...it's already Friday.

When one looks...the month is over; when one looks...the year is over; when one looks...50, 60, 70 and 80 years have passed!

When you look...we no longer know where our friends are. When you look...we lost the love of our life and now, it's too late to go back.

Do not stop doing something you like due to lack of time.
