positive aging conference rendering of event
I'm positive: You couldn't pick a better place to have an International Conference on Positive Aging this week (or any week). It isn't just because it's in Florida, but also because it's specifically in Sarasota County, which happens to have the highest percentage of people age 85-plus in the nation.

Nixon and his closest associates in 1973, chairman Sam Ervin, a North Carolina Democrat, became something of a national folk hero.

Online Dating1
Q: I've been a widow for almost three years and have gone on some dating sites. I just turned 70, and most of the men in my age category are looking for 50 to 60 year-olds. I don't look 70, but I don't look 50 either. I have a difficult time putting things into an email. How and where do I start to email a man I think I may want to meet in person?
