Sully

Sully

It’s hard to create a movie when you already know how everything is going to end. Leave it to Clint Eastwood’s, “Sully” to challenge you from the very first scene about your real understanding of the “Miracle On The Hudson”  landing in 2009. And that’s quite an accomplishment.  To create a story that has to

The Saboteur

The Saboteur

  By Andrew Gross   If you liked the movie, The Guns of Navarone (who didn’t?) or The Heroes of Telemark, then you will race through this terrific novel.  But even if you haven’t seen the flicks, but you enjoy solid story-telling with a foundation in historical fact, The Saboteur will have your heart racing

Fly Frequently? Get Bumped For Cash!

Fly Frequently? Get Bumped For Cash!

With the cooler weather approaching, many Suddenly Solos will be heading to winter residences. And some of us will often be shuttling back and forth for family events, holidays, recreational opportunities, etc.  If you are anticipating making several flights (and have some flexibility), why not roll the dice and book plane trips that are LIKELY

Dunkirk

Dunkirk

It is hard to believe that many people do not know the story of the rescue at Dunkirk in 1940. Just in case you need a reminder, allied soldiers from Belgium, the British Empire and France were surrounded by the German army and evacuated during a fierce battle in World War II. The Allied soldiers

Don’t Give A Thief Directions To Your House!

Don’t Give A Thief Directions To Your House!

Why would you knowingly provide a stranger with directions to your front door?  But that is exactly what you are doing when you program your address into your car’s GPS as “HOME.” And this isn’t something that happens solely as the result of a car theft.  Mechanics, parking valets, car detailers, etc.  most likely leave

Alma Maters – Get Involved!

Alma Maters – Get Involved!

Even if college was not the favorite time of your life, re-engaging with your alma mater at this stage of life has several advantages that merit your consideration. First off, your involvement will be welcomed.  All colleges value their alumni and view them as “ambassadors” who are an important part of their outreach to potential

Travelling With Young Grandchildren

Travelling With Young Grandchildren

It is no secret that we at Suddenly Solo heartily endorse spending time with your family.  It is important on many levels but it can present challenges when your extended family includes infants and toddlers as part of a travel group. There are physical demands when it comes to keeping up with very young children

In Your Face(book)!

In Your Face(book)!

A recent article in the New York Times by Joyce Wadler noted the online phenomenon of using social media as a conduit for “sticking it” to an enemy or an “ex.” This type of cyber-knife-in-back comes as a result of deliberately not “un-friending” a nemesis to make sure he/she knows the fun they are missing

Suddenly Solo? Simplify Your Surroundings!

Suddenly Solo?  Simplify Your Surroundings!

In the wake of a divorce or the loss of a spouse, there is an acceptable (and expected) period of “mourning” during which time things seem to stand still.  After time passes, and when you feel up to it, we suggest that you continue the healing process by de-cluttering your environment. De-cluttering has a salutary

Over-Fifty Flirting – It’s Like Riding a Bike

Over-Fifty Flirting – It’s Like Riding a Bike

Being a Suddenly Solo will open up opportunities to make new connections… some romantic, others not so much.  But no matter where it leads, without taking a first step, you just wind up exactly where you are standing. Flirting is an accepted introductory mechanism in our society, but there is definitely a subtle balance to
