Q: My grandmother is in her mid-80s and all of us - including our 16-year-old daughter - love her dearly.

It's time to retire that infamous "R" word - retirement. At least that's the way it looks to this commentator, who has "retired" and unretired four times. Let's find a new 21st century word or phrase that accurately reflects the lifestyles of the over-60 crowd. A few generations ago, retirement had a fairly well-understood definition. You hit "retirement" at age of 65 and you, well, retired. The Social Security Administration had decided, thanks to its ... [full story]

MENDOCINO, Calif. - The point of my trip to Mendocino was to judge a wine competition at the Mendocino County Fair. I managed to sample 125 of Mendocino's finest wines - and end up looking purple all over like Barney the dinosaur - but I also discovered that there's more to this part of California than what gets poured into a glass.   VINE VALLEY - Vineyards rise up the valley hills of Mendocino County, Calif. ...

CNS Illustration by Cristina Martinez Byvik. The bad guys always want to kill you. It's what they do, and they ... [full story]

Later life dating contains emotional risk.  Later life marriage contains financial risk.  In some states a “beneficiary deed” can minimize financial risk.  I so advised a 67-year-old senior legal helpline caller who was widowed in 2001.  She has had a five-year relationship with a man in his early 70s.    “We have gotten along quite well and we are now seriously considering marriage.  We both have children from our previous marriage and wish to pass along ...

Is it possible to brush our dog's teeth? We have heard that canine toothpastes have been developed and are being used by many dog owners throughout the ... [full story]

Whatever happens to old TV stars once the screen goes to black on their popular series? Here is Ben Jones' story, which happens to be a much better yarn than the hit CBS Georgia redneck comedy, "The Dukes of Hazzard," which starred Ben for seven years in the 1980s. "The Dukes of Hazzard" was a "good old boy" series, a slapstick version of a horse opera - substitute the orange-red Dodge Charger, General Lee, for ... [full story]
