We’re not talking anything medical here . . . although failure to “heave” some of these may result in a visit to the Doctor!  With spring on the doorstep, here are some things you should give serious consideration to replacing in your life: Towels – If you shower every day, these take a beating. Assuming

Germ Warfare: The Least Hygienic Places You Go

We’re just coming out of a really tough winter that saw record numbers of people becoming ill from a variety of disease vectors.  Although we Suddenly Solos are a pretty hearty bunch of folks, none of us likes to get sick.  So, as a heads-up, here are five of the most germ-ridden locales that you

Cooking for a “Special” Vegetarian? No Problem!

Cooking for a “Special” Vegetarian?  No Problem!

It’s easy to get intimidated by “special” eating requirements when you are a meat-and-potatoes type of chef.  Yet, as we Suddenly Solos well know, cooking for a woman is a VERY sexy way to make an impression. So don’t get flustered if a woman you like tells you she’s a vegetarian.  You can still whip

A Man’s Morning Maintenance!

A Man’s Morning Maintenance!

Like most guys, as soon as the alarm clock rings/beeps/turns on the radio, etc., I hightail it to the bathroom and give my bladder a much-needed break.  But after that blissful interlude, I have discovered a few things from trial-and-error that I now share with you, my fellow Suddenly Solos, in the hope they provide

Many of us Suddenly Solos were motorcyclists growing up.  There is nothing like riding a bike on a smooth country road and enjoying the scenery rush by, so it’s not surprising that more and more of us are getting back into (or discovering for the first time) motorcycling.  In 1990, only ten percent of bike

This might require going to a nontraditional grocery. Thanks to WebMD.com, we have found interesting options at Whole Foods markets, for example. Here are

Do You Think You’re Losing It?

Notes on New Research in Cognition Patricia A. Farrell, Ph.D. The media pays a lot of attention to anything that has to do with memory, physical aging and mental decline and, while the headlines attract a lot of attention, they fail to note the other side of the coin; simple things that research has found

“Bang for the Buck” Fashion

“Bang for the Buck” Fashion

We are well aware that “making a fashion statement” is probably not high up on your list of things to do.  BUT (you knew that was coming, right?) there is something positive to be said about purchasing (at a reasonable price) one or two articles of clothing or accessories that can really make a difference

“He Ain’t Got No Couth!”

“He Ain’t Got No Couth!”

I was out to dinner at a nice restaurant with some friends and I realized that the bread plates on both my left and right were already occupied with my neighbor’s rolls.  This was the result of a chain reaction when someone used the incorrect plate and then the mix-ups got compounded until the only
