    Japan’s Ukiyo-e (Woodblock Print Art)

    $0.00

    Japanese Ukiyo-e, which translates to “pictures of the floating world,” is a genre of art that flourished in Japan from the 17th through 19th centuries. Thanks especially to the advancement of woodblock printing, Japanese artists such as: Toyokuni Utagawa 1769-1825 and his disciples Kunisada Utagawa and Kuniyoshi Utagawa, Kitagawa Utamaro 1750-1806, Ando Hiroshige 1797-1858, and Hokusai Katsushika 1760-1849, became famous both in Japan and abroad. They heavily influenced the Impressionist and Post-Impressionist artists of France and America, with their expressive curves, bold use of colors, and liberal designs.  Ukiyo-e subjects included: female beauties, kabuki actors, sumo wrestlers, historic scenes, folk tales, travel scenes and landscapes, flora and fauna, and erotic.

    Two for the Price of One: Charleston/Daniel Island South Carolina

    $0.00

    A wonderful place to visit any time of year is Charleston, South Carolina. History, architecture, great food, water elements and charm all come to mind when describing this area. Recently, I was made aware of a 4,000 acre island within the Charleston area that was formerly owned by the Guggenheim Foundation. The first residential property did not make an appearance here until 1996. Since then it has become a planned community with 8 parks, 25 miles of trails, 23 miles of rivers, golf courses, tennis clubs, shops and restaurants. Bingo, now you get two great areas for the price of one!

    Tips for Avoiding Nasty Germs on the Go

Along that path they often stop to grab a coffee here or a latte there, fill up the gas tank, and grab some breakfast at the local donut shop. Being so busy can put people on a germ-filled path, especially as they make their way to and from their destinations. The good news is that there are things baby boomers can do help avoid those nasty germs and keep healthy.

    Volunteer for an Adventure!

    $0.00

    If you want to experience a life-changing adventure, I highly recommend you combine travel with volunteerism! It’s one of the best things I’ve ever done! I’ve traveled to many beautiful, historic, and tourist friendly places, but volunteering gave me a deeper, richer, and more rewarding experience. It’s a great way to be completely immersed in a new culture, visit places you’ve never have been before, give yourself a new perspective on your life back at home, and have the added feel-good bonus of feeding your soul while helping those in need.

    Walking On Air - Therafit Shoes

    $0.00

    So, what is the most important thing you need to pack in your suitcase beside any medications you may use? It’s essential to have a comfortable pair of shoes – don’t you agree? Shoes are the biggest problem when it comes to packing because they take up a lot of room. However, I found an amazing pair of shoes that do double duty, because they look stylish (ballet flat), but the shock absorbing comfort soles make you feel like you’re walking on air. The shoes were sent to me to try and I have to admit, I have not been able to take them off. I have been wearing them everyday and have received a lot of compliments. When I tell people that they feel amazing as well, they are also sold.

    While many in the Northern Hemisphere cannot avoid winter exposure, others actively seek outdoor activities on skis, snowmobiles, or ice fishing.  Paramount to your comfort and safety is prevention and treatment of cold-related injuries.  Frostbite is the one that most consider but non-freezing cold injuries also occur.  Respiratory problems are caused from cold air by increasing secretions and decreasing pulmonary function.

    Antarctica: A Great Place to go in Winter

    $0.00

    The last thing those in the throes of the winter deep freeze think about is going to a place with more snow and ice.  People north of the equator think of going south.  But what if you went WAY south to a land where the wind-chill factor was conceived and snow and ice are daily companions?  Sounds crazy, but I can assure you that you are in for a spectacular experience if you head to Antarctica.  Seasons are opposite south of the equator so the middle of winter in the northern hemisphere is the height of “summer” in our most remote continent. It almost gets up to freezing!  Let me share my experience in Antarctica as the medical officer on an icebreaker taking 100 high school students and 9 scientists to do experiments.
