From last winter to this July, I grew out my bangs — and was appalled to discover “what lies beneath”: misshapen eyebrows of multiple colors, missing tails and long, wiry hairs boinging this way and that.

Greetings from New Orleans. I've just spent the evening strolling around the French Quarter, which for those of you who have never been is something of a cross between Downtown Disney and the Innermost Circle of Hell.But most importantly, this afternoon I was at the Louisiana Theatre at the New Orleans Convention Center watching the final preparations for our Movies for Grownups Film Festival. It's all part of AARP's Life@50+ Member Event, which is drawing tens of thousands of folks from all over the country.
