Words That Make Us Sound “Old” To Our Kids

Words That Make Us Sound “Old” To Our Kids

  We all know not to say things like, “When I was your age,” or “In my day” if we want to avoid sounding like our parents! However, there are words and phrases that sometime creep in to our conversation that sound alarm bells with our children and grandchildren, that date us. We’re not saying

Tis The Season For “Thank You” Cards

Tis The Season For “Thank You” Cards

We know from first-hand experience that receiving a “thank you” card for a gift is becoming an increasingly rare occurrence. Although it is just common courtesy (at least in our opinion) to acknowledge generosity, for some reason many people just can’t make it happen. But don’t contribute to the erosion! Set an example by making

Stuff Guys Wear That Women Hate

Stuff Guys Wear That Women Hate

We get lots of comments from women here at Suddenly Solo. Most of it is good . . . they like our mission and they agree with much of what we say. We know that women buy our book as often as men do so it’s safe to say that although we are certainly “guy-focused,”

ADHD And Walking Tall

ADHD And Walking Tall

In a small study that was published in the Journals of Gerentology, researchers in Israel gave a 10mg dose of the drug methylphenidate (Ritalin) to fifteen healthy adults, 70 and older who could walk without assistance.

Women vs. Recliners

In much the same way that all women seem to hate The Three Stooges (while guys tend to love them!), a reclining chair will likely polarize along gender lines also.

When Is A Glass of Wine Not A Glass of Wine?

When Is A Glass of Wine Not A Glass of Wine?

While most people think of a glass of wine as one serving, it could be closer to two or three. How much one pours is influenced by such environmental factors as the size, shape and color of the wine glass, researchers at Iowa State and Cornell universities report, and that could have serious consequences when

A new discovery in the treatment of degenerative nerve cell disease has been characterized as a “turning point” in the fight against diseases like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and Huntington’s. In tests on laboratory mice, deaths from what is known as prion disease was completely prevented leading Professor Robert Morris from King’s College, London to say that

Thinking Of Taking A Cruise?

Thinking Of Taking A Cruise?

Cruising can be a wonderful way to get away for a while. But as a Suddenly Solo, there are some things to consider. If you have never been on a cruise before, you must do your research. For most cruise regions there are periods of peak demand (high season), moderate demand (shoulder season) and low

Whopping Cough? Is That Still Around?

Whopping Cough? Is That Still Around?

The answer unfortunately is yes. In 2010, 10 infants in California (who were too young to be vaccinated) died of the disease. Over 9,000 people came down with Whopping cough at that time, the most in one year since 1947. Whopping cough (Pertussis) is characterized by coughing spells that can come so closely together that

Should You Whiten Your Teeth?

Should You Whiten Your Teeth?

We at Suddenly Solo say YES. Research shows that a man’s smile is the first thing most women notice when meeting for the first time so literally putting your money where your mouth is will be worth it. Over the years, aging itself will darken your teeth . . . to say nothing about coffee,
