<h3><strong>#1 Amazon Best Seller & Wall Street Journal Best Books of 2018 on Aging Well ─ Over fifty, retiring and childless?</strong></h3><p><strong>Are you among the fifteen million Americans over fifty and childless? Solo aging gracefully and a happy retirement can be yours!</strong></p><p><strong>Baby Boomers retiring:</strong> American Baby boomers are aging and fifteen million of them never had children. Who will take care of them? Unprecedented in U.S. history, this demographic will create challenges for these individuals as well as for society. <em>Essential Retirement Planning for Solo Agers</em> is a passionate exploration of the path ahead for “Solo Agers.” It includes choices in housing, relationships, legal arrangements, finances and more – and urges the solo ager to plan for the future as though their life and well-being depended on it, as author Sara Zeff Geber believes it will!</p><p><strong>Solo Agers aging well:</strong> In <em>Essential Retirement Planning for Solo Agers</em>, Sara Zeff Geber, a Ph.D. in Counseling and Human Behavior and a Certified Retirement Coach, coins the term “Solo Ager” to refer to the segment of society that either does not have adult children or is single and believes they will be on their own as they grow older. However, it’s not just the Solo Ager that can learn from this book. Financial advisors, elder law and estate attorneys, senior care managers, and others whose clientele is on the far side of sixty will benefit as well.</p><p><strong>Retirement and good living:</strong> With a compelling and readable style, Gerber takes her readers on a journey, starting with the choice for childlessness and why so many boomers were able to make that decision. She then reviews the role of adult children in an aging parent’s world and suggests ways in which Solo Agers can mitigate the absence of adult children by relationship building and rigorous planning for their future. Geber shares her expertise on what constitutes a fulfilling older life and how Solo Agers can maximize their opportunities for financial security, physical health, meaning and purpose in the second half of life and, finally, planning for the end game.</p><p><strong>Retirement guide:</strong> Through stories and narrative, the author explores housing choices, relationships, and building a support system. You will learn about:</p><ul><li>different levels of care and independence in various types of living arrangements</li><li>how to initiate discussions among friends and relatives about end-of-life treatment</li><li>‘what if’ scenarios</li><li>who to talk to about legal and financial decisions</li></ul><p>Geber's stories of Solo Agers are gleaned from friends and clients in a variety of circumstances. Each one demonstrates decisions and choices these people have made and illustrates the importance of thinking ahead and taking action now.</p><p><em>Essential Retirement Planning for Solo Agers</em> is pragmatic and provocative, but softened with humor. Many of the chapters include worksheets or checklists, encouraging the reader to go beyond imagining and begin his or her own planning for the voyage ahead.</p>

<p><b>The unpredictable origins and etymologies of our cracking Christmas customs</b></p><p>For something that happens every year of our lives, we really don't know much about Christmas.</p><p>We don't know that the date we celebrate was chosen by a madman, or that Christmas, etymologically speaking, means "Go away, Christ". Nor do we know that Christmas was first celebrated in 243 AD on March 28th - and only moved to 25th December in 354 AD. We're oblivious to the fact that the advent calendar was actually invented by a Munich housewife to stop her children pestering her for a Christmas countdown. And we would never have guessed that the invention of crackers was merely a way of popularising sweet wrappers.</p><p>Luckily, like a gift from Santa himself, Mark Forsyth is here to unwrap this fundamentally funny gallimaufry of traditions and oddities, making it all finally make sense - in his wonderfully entertaining wordy way.</p>

Knowledge Stew presents Odd Stew: The Weird Side of the News, a different look at the news from around the globe. Inside you'll find real news stories about some of the world's most incompetent criminals, strange encounters with wildlife, why flying is sometimes weird, creative and interesting people, hard to believe lawsuits, government waste, the lucky and unlucky, and much, much more. <br /><br />All the news stories were collected from major news outlets, and some are too hard to believe. How about the thieves that stole a 220-pound coin, or a velociraptor working at a hotel? How about the time it rained fish from the sky, or the story about a man who got trapped in an ATM?<br /><br />These fun and interesting news stories, that might also make you cringe, are waiting for you. Take a break from the everyday boring news cycle and see what is really going on in the world. None of the stories in Odd Stew are fake news, but you might just wish they were. <br />

<DIV><P>Founded in 1971 by Elizabeth Pepper, the long-time art director of <I>Gourmet</I> magazine, <I>The Witches’ Almanac</I> is a witty, literate, and sophisticated publication that appeals to general readers as well as hard-core Wiccans and magicians. On one level, it is a pop reference that will fascinate anyone interested in folklore, mythology, and culture, but on another, it is the most sophisticated and wide-ranging annual guide available today for occultists and mysticism enthusiasts.</P><P>Modeled after the <I>Old Farmers’ Almanac</I>, it includes information related to the annual moon calendar (weather forecasts and horoscopes), as well as legends, rituals, herbal secrets, mystic incantations, interviews, and many a curious tale of good and evil. Although it is an annual publication, only about 15 percent of the content is specific to the date range of each issue.</P><P>The theme of Issue 38 (Spring 2019 to Spring 2020) is Animals: Friends and Familiars. Also included are the following articles: “Beer and Witches,” “Gargoyles,” “Horseshoes,” “Transgender in the Craft,” and “Coefficient of Weirdness, Part 3.” New authors include Sorita d’Este, Lon Milo DuQuette, David Rankine, and Mat Auryn.</P></DIV>
