Happy Friday and welcome to News for Women of a Certain Age…where I curate headlines just for us.  Some of these my inspire, motivate, or encourage new ideas.  But , I do hope you will find something of value here and, of course, comment on any or all of what you read.  So let’s get a cold drink and sit down for some reading time.
