It’s a bitter joke that Black History Month occurs in February, the shortest month of the year! The list of Black Americans that have enriched America is long, and their stories are both inspiring and poignant. During Black History Month, we often hear the familiar names of famous African-Americans that have changed our country. Names like Rosa Parks, Louis Armstrong, Martin Luther King, Jr., Thur
Ozempic, the brand name for semaglutide, is a drug developed for the treatment of diabetes. It helps increase the body’s production of insulin, helping control and regulate blood sugar. It was subsequently found that Ozempic reduces appetite and increases satiety, the feeling of being full. As a result, patients were losing weight while on the medication.
I’m generally not into conspiracy theories. I believe that we landed on the moon, that Elvis wasn’t an alien and is dead, and that the Earth is a sphere. Nevertheless, for better or for worse, conspiracy theories abound. Some are whimsical and interesting, while others are potentially harmful. For instance, who shot JFK or what really happened at Roswell? Are supermodels aliens? These belong to th
See the couple in that picture up there? Guys, we’ve all been there. Getting those questions from your wife or significant other that twist a knot in your chest, tighten your sphincter, and make it hard to breathe. There is no universal solution to this problem, no “knick of time” answer, that pulls your ass out of the fiery cauldron that awaits if you answer unwisely. These questions, though seem
By the time I got there, the pain was excruciating, way worse than anything I had ever experienced. I was nauseous and wretching, and getting dehydrated from the sweating. Like any ER, they had to do a preliminary evaluation and workup before any medication could be given. It seemed like an eternity!
What is The Question, you ask? Let’s start with some backstory! My wife and I have been married for 39 years. Many of our friends also have long-term relationships, although some are on #2! Trust, respect, and intimacy are key factors in keeping a relationship strong. And intimacy–let’s call it sex for the purpose of this article knowing full well the multi-faceted nature of intimacy–is just as
The most common risk factor for dementia is aging, with well over 50% of cases around the world occurring in those over 65. As the average lifespan gets longer, dementia will become an even greater problem for healthcare systems, families, and caregivers.
Hollywood: Please don’t remake these movies! My Top 10 list of classics that shouldn’t be touched. We all sense it—Hollywood is running out of ideas! If not for Marvel and the Star Wars franchises, they’d be in trouble. And they are certainly not catering to men and women over 50! There are some movies that, if I’m channel surfing and see that they’re on, I’ll stop and watch. Doesn’t matter if it’
The PGA since its inception in 1929 has been a bastion of excellence and integrity, promoting the game of golf around the world. It has been a game enjoyed by every age group, every ethnicity, nationality, and every gender. And the main requirement? Play by the rules!
Next time you’re planning a vacation, think “local.” Okay, Vancouver in British Columbia isn’t close to everybody here in the states, but it is Canada and they’re just next door! If you’re on the West Coast, flying to Vancouver is no more than a couple of hours. If you leave in the morning like I did, you can be exploring the Vancouver by the early afternoon. The city has so much to offer, and the
The word lingerie conjures up nights of pleasure and libidinous playtime. Lingerie is sexy, it’s hot, and it’s powerful enough to divert quarts of blood to men’s nether regions and turn flesh into blue twisted steel without a touch. Whose idea was it, this sexy lingerie thing? You ask most men, and they’ll say women. You ask most women, and they’ll say men! It’s not that women don’t like sexy ling
Bill and Pete Bush are seasoned and certified retirement planners who have written a great advice book on retirement that argues that it’s never too late to start a retirement plan that can allow you to be financially secure. In “The Runway Decade,” the authors break it down with anecdotes and stories, tables and charts, and general advice all of which are designed to get you started.

Shakespeare might have written on the problem of hungry kids: To give or not to give, that is the question. Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer the slings and arrows of indifference, Or to take arms against a sea of childhood hunger And by opposing it, end it. Imagine your child or grandchild not having enough to eat, especially when other children do. The idea of hungry kids is heartbreakin
White water rafting is a popular sport and vacation activity. Fearless men and women navigate treacherous rapids in plastic canoes for fun and that adrenaline rush. For lesser mortals and families, companies offer rafting excursions on almost every river in the world. And by no means, do I think you shouldn’t do it. I’m just telling you why I don’t. My first and only experience with white water ra
Bob Ross was a staple on PBS in the 80s and early 90s. An artist for the people, he turned a blank canvas into a beautiful painting right before our eyes on the 30 minute “The Joy Of Painting” show. Known for his calming voice and patient teaching style, he was an inspiration to any budding artist who couldn’t afford art lessons. Bob Ross was born in Daytona Beach, Florida on October 29, 1942.

Donald Fagen and Walter Becker. These guys are Steely Dan. There is no guy named Dan, as some non-fans think. The name comes from an old novel, “Naked Lunch,” by William S. Burroughs and refers to a steam-powered dildo! Actually, for most of its existence, Steely Dan has been those 2 guys, or was, until sadly Walter Becker passed away in 2017. But for almost 50 years, these two Rock and Roll Hall
Erectile dysfunction (ED) has come out of the shadows and is actively being discussed in TV commercials and talk shows. It’s estimated that 50% of men over 50 experience erectile dysfunction, sometimes called “Limp Dick,” “Floppy McSkinflute,” or “Cock-a-doodle Done.” All kidding aside, erectile dysfunction is a serious matter, especially to the sufferer, and can lead to depression, anxiety, irrit
I know there are a lot of places in this world to go for a vacation, but Iceland is an exceptional destination that has to go on your bucket list. The country has made great strides promoting tourism over the last 10 years, including partnering with airlines for affordable airfares, and offering great pricing on lodging and food.
