We all know that exercise is important, especially as we get older. The following words of wisdom are provided in the hope that they may encourage a healthy perspective on exercise for retirees. It is fortunate that one can continue typing without incident with tongue firmly planted in cheek.
A couple of folks were pretty quick identifying photo #2 - Paul McLaughlin. How about this fellow? Post a comment about who he is and tell us something about him while you're at it.
Please consider as well, sending photos that you have - of colleagues from the College - so that we might include them in this ongoing feature. Any photos should be scanned into your computer and sent to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
You all failed miserably with Photo #1, but am hoping that we will do better with mystery photo #2.
Let's hear from you concerning the identify of this former employee of SLC.
How about an anecdote or two about this person, while you're at it.
This is a new feature that I hope will run for a number of weeks. The plan is to provide a photo of someone who worked at the College. You are asked to post a comment, identifying this person. Better still, please post some recollections of the person, some personal memories that you have, some stories about this individual and her time at SLC.
Here is the mystery photo #1. Let's hear from you.
Research tells us that working with words, puzzles, even numbers (right Larry?), helps keep our minds active and fights off challenges that come with aging. So in an effort to help keep your mind alert and nimble, I offer the following ten items for your contemplation:
We are told to learn new skills as a way of keeping our minds sharp as we age. If this is true, I'm going to be quite the brilliant old chap, given how much I am in the process of learning about setting up a website for the Retirees Association and then setting up a dedicated Facebook page as well - for those of our members who are already on Facebook and find it easier to follow us there. Since many others (we have been given to understand) aren't on Facebook - and don't intend to join - this Association website has been created as our primary Internet connection. While much younger than me, and therefore less in need of new skills to stimulate his mind, Vincent Durant has also been working on these new Internet initiatives and has been a great help.
This page is intended as a vehicle for retirees to provide stories about their activities, travels, travails, and just about anything that they want to share. Our Association members will be advised how to submit items for this page. Once things are posted, any visitors can respond with comments (or mini-posts) of their own.
