Not Allowed a Satellite Dish? Not So Fast!

Competition is what keeps prices down.  And with a steady growth in the cost of cable television (government research found that the average price of “expanded basic” cable service has increased from $25 per month in 1995 to more than $54 per month today), customers have plenty of incentive to use other providers, like satellite

National Widowers Organization

In many ways, widowers are one of the most underserved populations in the United States. We know this from firsthand experience.  It is one of the major reasons we founded Suddenly Solo.

Accept a Gift Graciously

With Father’s Day coming up, you probably count on getting at least one or more “clunkers” from well-meaning gift-givers.  After all, tastes change and the way we view ourselves may be at least somewhat at odds with the way others envision us.  But no matter how awful or useless a gift is, it still represents

We Knew It All Along! Bras Aren’t Necessary!

We Knew It All Along! Bras Aren’t Necessary!

Leave it to the French to research this important topic.  The results of a mammoth 15-year study led by Professor Jean-Denis Rouillon from the University of Besançon in eastern France indicate that conventional wisdom about bras and back pain has been way off the mark.
