  1. Joan, I’m one of those almost 80 (July 2019) active old people. I got the message how to age healthfully years ago, and was blessed with good genes, I think! Your posts are so important, please never stop blogging. I’m a retired nurse practitioner and did a lot of counseling clients on physical and mental health. So important along with therapy, and medication if absolutely needed. Look forward to reading more of your health related material! 📚🎶 Christine

    1. Hi Christine – it is so nice to meet you! And thank you so much for your kind words. I started exercising at 60 and it has been wonderful for me. It was difficult getting started but once it became a habit its not so tough. My friend and I joke that starting is so much tougher then keeping at it, so we made a pact to never stop. And with the nutrition improvements (yes, I slip sometimes :( ), my health has improved and I feel like I have more energy than ever before. I am grateful that you stopped by and please visit often! Nurses are God’s angels!

      Thank you again Christine and welcome to the family!!

      1. Thank you, Joan! Kudos to you & your friend for starting to exercise & keeping it up. It’s a “Just Do It” mindset to continue. I will visit often! If you ever need any psychiatry topic info, please think of me as a potential contributor. Contact email:

        1. Absolutely! And if you want to write about being active and/or nutrition, I’m sure our readers would love to hear from you. Thank you so much Christine! Cheers to you for aging gracefully!

        2. Awesome! What is the process to contribute? Send an email attachment with content to you? It’s an everyday “mission” to age gracefully! 📚🎶 Christine

        3. Yes, let’s agree on a topic – we focus on exercises, workouts, nutritional info and nutritional recipes too… And it sounds like you are making it your mission to do it well – your site is amazing – I am so excited to hear your story! Hugs Christine

        4. We’d like either one – I always find basic info good too, but love to hear how others are doing. Whatever you would like to write about I’m sure would be great! :)

        5. Thanks. I’m excited to work on a post. Give me a little time to put it together. I’m flying to WA state on 2/26 to be nurse/caregiver to my son post surgery. Another plus at my age to be able to do this. I helped him recover last summer from 2 surgeries (cycling accident). This surgery is a redo on the femur. I’ll have time while there. Hope the delay is okay with you.
