Increasing numbers of older Americans are creating their own blogs on the Internet these days. A blog is an online journal. You can write your thoughts, your feelings, your opinions on politics - really, anything you choose. One Internet-trend observer notes that out of 54 million bloggers, at least 160,000 are older people, and more sign on each year. OK, so blogging has not quite become the mania of the Social Security set - nearly 60 percent of ... [full story]

And the Official Popeye Fan Club, based in Chester, Ill., the hometown ... [full story]

We must have sung the Rutgers alma mater 50 times when I went to my 50th reunion in New Brunswick, N.J. We blared out, "My father sent me to old Rutgers and resolved that I should be a man." The words of the song showed just how sexist our all-male college really was back in the 1950s. Nobody would have thought for a minute that Mom played any part at all in deciding where we ...

Now that the spy business, which took a big hit at the end of the Cold War, is fashionable again, thanks to the televised testimony of the blond femme fatale, Valerie Plame Wilson, I have a confession to make. I was in the spy game, myself, for a couple of years in Europe. I got my snooping training at the now-defunct Fort Holabird in Baltimore in 1958. But nobody seemed too much care about my ...

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]

They were a unique group of men. One was a distinguished lawyer who had represented a Watergate figure. Another was a prominent psychiatrist. They all had one thing in common when they met every Friday a decade ago at a Washington church. They were suffering from the early stages of Alzheimer's disease. I thought of them the other day with the announcement of the latest number of Alzheimer's patients. There are now 5 million of ... [full story]

What if your partner has a long-term illness, like dementia or Alzheimer's that eventually prevents maintaining a supportive, loving relationship with you? As we live longer and the number of Alzheimer's patients rises, the question takes on new importance. Often spouses, who become caretakers for Alzheimer's patients, form relationships with someone else for companionship, intimacy and comfort. Recently though the flip side of such relationships has leapt into headlines with the announcement that retired Supreme ... [full story]

Back in the 1930s, Army life looked pretty good to a lot of young Americans mired in a Depression with unemployment at 25 percent. They used to have the saying: At least you got "three hots and a cot." Now, with unemployment heading toward 10 percent, the economic advantages of Army life are looking beneficial. It is definitely not the Army this GI Joe remembers. Forty-five years ago, I was a $110-a-month intelligence analyst assigned ... [full story]
