Keeping Your Brain Power

I took my nearly 94-year-old father-in-law to his doctor appointment the other day. At this point in his life, every medical visit includes a cognition test. The questions are easy unless you’re almost 94 years old and dealing with the natural decline of the brain. My father-in-law’s neurologist told us we all naturally have half… Read More Keeping Your Brain Power

Vamping the Vampire Facial – My CIT Microneedling Experience

I’ve been sooo curious about vampire facials, or more specifically, Collagen Injection Therapy and Microneedling. After reading about the many women who have been pleased with the results I really wanted to try it. I made an appointment at my local source, Peach Skin Clinic, and worked with Maria.

Looking Ahead

Being in the present.  As a tax and financial planning professional, I know planning makes a difference. I can help clients save money much more easily before the end of the year.

Let’s Talk About Sex

Let’s talk about sex.  More specifically, let’s talk about sex after menopause.  I’m still scratching my head wondering what the heck happened.  Things were going great all through the  pre-menopausal issues.  Hot flashes?  Check.  I had them.  Night sweats?  A few, but I could probably count them on one hand.  Sex?  Absolutely!  No problem there. … Read More Let’s Talk About Sex

We the People – Happy Birthday to the Constitution of the United States of America

Every American knows July 4th is special – it is known as Independence Day in the United States, and marks the anniversary of the day our forefathers declared independence from King George of England.  Not many Americans are familiar with the birthday of another document, although I’d argue it is every bit as important if… Read More We the People – Happy Birthday to the Constitution of the United States of America
