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,

Did You Get Your Flu Shot Yet?

Did You Get Your Flu Shot Yet?

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the flu vaccination prevented over 13 million cases of the flu in the U.S. from 2005 to 2011. If you have ever had a bout of influenza, you know that it can really knock you out. And this becomes especially hazardous as we age. During a

Out Of The Gutter – Bowling As Exercise?

Out Of The Gutter – Bowling As Exercise?

Growing up, the old gag was that bowling was the only sport where you can sit, drink, and smoke as part of the experience. Things have changed markedly (bowling pun in there, BTW).  Bowling alleys have gone upscale and smoking regulations have cleared the air within its climate-controlled and well-lit confines.  And bowling is actually

Time To Change Your Locks?

Time To Change Your Locks?

  It is amazing how infrequently people change the locks to their homes or apartments, but it’s an important aspect of home security. Many people don’t recall if their home was re-fitted when they first moved in.  It is very possible that previous tenants/owners may still have the keys to your place! Almost 87% of

Should You Go For a New 4K TV For Football Season?

First, a little bit of background – 4K television is the latest high definition viewing technology. As the name implies, it is basically about four times as image-intense (resolution) as the current high definition television. It is sometimes referred to as Ultra HD. Hard to believe, right? Take a trip to your local TV/electronics dealer

Fall Fashion – What Suddenly Solo Guys Should Know

We are under no illusions about what most of us mature men think about Fashion Week in New York (which just ended).  It’s fun to look at the pictures of celebrities . . . especially the male athletes and rockers who are clearly there just to choose their next hook-ups!   Certainly the vast majority

Sleep & Exercise – A Long Term Relationship

Sleep & Exercise – A Long Term Relationship

Don’t think that going to the gym randomly will help you sleep better that night.  A recent analysis of people with insomnia revealed that the benefits of exercise as a way to improve your sleep come only after months of regular activity. Kelly Glazer Baron, a clinical psychologist and director of the behavioral sleep program

Don’t Let Your Spectacles Make A Spectacle!

Don’t Let Your Spectacles Make A Spectacle!

Most of us have at least one pair of glasses.  They may be reading glasses, sunglasses, bifocals, progressives, transitions, or who knows what they call them.  But, we feel very safe in stating that our Suddenly Solo noses are the resting place of some type of optical enhancement!
