Most of us are too young to know about old-fashioned dating habits. But if you’ve seen old movies, then you know men used to call a lady to ask her on a date several days before. Then come date night, he’d show up all dressed up at her door with a bouquet of flowers, and take her to the movies. What if old-fashioned dating habits came back in style?
#1. Getting picked up at the door.
No more of this texting or calling to say “I’m outside”, but actually getting out of the car and walking to the door. It takes just a minute and makes all the difference in the world. It’s a date, it’s special, and should be treated as such.
#2. Bring a small gift or flowers.
It’s thoughtful, kind, and a way of showing affection. Whenever I visit a friend, I always bring a little gift…

Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids are the building blocks of a well functioning brain. Many seniors start to develop cognitive impairment as they age not because they are simply getting older, but because their nutrition is lacking. Aside from quitting smoking, staying active, and continuing to challenge yourself intellectually to keep your brain working well into your centenarian years, here is a list of foods, primarily those which contain monounsaturated fats or ‘healthy fats’, which can keep you reciting poetry from memory or recalling your childhood friends’ names like you just saw them yesterday.

Recently at work my superior, and basically the person who thought me a lot of what I know today, decided to resign in pursuit of greener pastures. Perfectly normal thing that happens in any organization, but being a small company what that meant was that a lot of what he was doing was now going to fall on my shoulders.

Are you in emotional pain? Find someone to talk to!
Are you having ups and/or downs and don’t understand why…
