Some diseases and other health problems develop in cats at a late age and you should be prepared to know how to deal with them. Like humans, it is just part of aging.

    Barbara Fleisher & Thelma Reese: The New Senior Woman

    in Self Help

    The largest and fastest-growing part of our population is Senior Women. There IS no role-model for women sixty and older, because they are living their “senior years” differently than the senior women before them. Today’s senior women live longer, are healthier, better educated, more involved in the world, and more active than the women who preceded them. Barbara Fleisher and Thelma Reese have gathered stories from women who are living in new ways, offering others the opportunity to see “how it’s done” in these new times.


    It’s shocking to me, at age 72, to have someone refer to me and people my age as “old” or “elderly.” Two months ago I was zip-lining through the jungles of Belize and swimming with a jaguar in Honduras. This week I was riding a Segway through California wine country. If we’d had snow this year, you would have found me on the downhill slopes. We don’t think of ourselves as “old.” We certainly do not behave the way our mothers and their mothers behaved at 72 (if, indeed, they made it to that age). So how do we figure out the best ways to conduct our lives? Find out this Thursday. Click here to visit Barbara and Thelma's website.

    Today our topic is brought to our audience by our Co-Creator Marquel Green


    The show is about Senior Cut Day or Senior Skip Day


    The issue: One day of the year that Seniors skip High School!


    www.wikipedia.com says:


    Senior skip day also called senior ditch day or senior cut day is a tradition in many American and Canadian High Schools where the majority of Seniors skip class


    around May 8 often to spend the day at an amusement park or resort.


    The most frequently chosen day is either the day before prom or the following Monday.


    Other days popular for seniors to ditch include the day after Halloween the day before election day, the day after the Super Bowl, 


    Cinco de Mayo, April 20, and the day before Spring Break.


    Prevention by Schools


    Some schools have taken actions to prevent students from skipping school on Ditch Day,


    Other schools have embraced the trend by offering some kind of school sponsored class trip to an amusement park or other fun activity.


     


    Asbury Park H.S.  a Neighboring School has also participated in the Senior Trend.
