    54 Years Young and Enjoying the Ride.

    Another time is right. When we were kids (in Australia anyway) the evening entertainment was a mantle radio or a record player spinning 78 RPM records. Does anyone remember "The three bells", "Warburton Mountain", or "Teddy Bears Picnic" ...

    Turning 50

    On July 28th, I turned 50. Although I was convinced at a young age that I wouldn't make it past 30, here I am. Long ago, 50 seemed really, really old. Now I look at 50 and ask, what's next? I took time to reflect on my life and I can actually say that I have no regrets. Yes, I...

    I am 50 and very proud of myself and my achievements, but when it comes to having a life partner it is becoming a really hard goal to achieve since 50's and 60's men are looking for ladys half their age. Why?

    54 And Counting

    I'm not entirely sure this qualifies as an experience since I did nothing but age.  I will say, all things considered, I'm not doing bad for an old guy.  I work out 5-6 days a week, I haven't gotten fat (although I'm getting pretty bald) and I don't have ED. ...

    50 & Building

    At 50 I'm working hard to change my life.  I wanted a richer, fuller life.  I've taken one big step by moving from the suburbs to the city and I am very happy with that decision.  Now the next step is to take advantage of all the city has to offer - art, music, culture and...

    52 Years Old

    I am 52 years old, and after a day of hard work at my job I feel every year of it.  But I am grateful that I still can work at a hard job.  And I am happy that I have used moisturizer on my face every morning since I was 40, and people think I am in my late 30's! ...
