  1. Waiting for my social security to max and then I'm done. Less than 2 years!
  2. Anyone else taken a break this year from booze? I'm 10 months without it, and I've lost 25 lbs effortlessly.
  3. This interview they did on here was pretty damn good. And she looks great! https://www.manopause.com/podcast/paulina-porizkova-interview-supermodel-actor-writer-and-womens-rights-advocate/
  4. I don't do liquor but I love a good pinot noir...
  5. I just rescued a terrier mix puppy and it's so much work! I cannot tell you how much he lights up out home... I am not sure how we ever did without him!
  6. I need some recipes for some healthy easy snacks to make at home! HELP!
  7. My favorite summer beer is sam Adams summer ale! It's so easy to sip on and has such a great flavor. any new ones I should try?
  8. The most beautiful sunset I ever saw was in Capri. I was out on a small boat and the sunset was just breathtaking. We just stopped moving and sat and took it all in. Could have been much due to the gorgeous surroundings or the idea that we were in Italy, but man- it was a once in a lifetime kind of thing.
  9. My son was in the army for years, and overseas many times. Grateful for him and every other soldier.
  10. It's hard! But honestly, the new start will be new and exciting and if you're able to, there's a chance to get some new stuff.
  11. This is pretty good- on the food and drink part of this site. The chips are baked and probably delicious! I'm making it this weekend for sure! https://www.manopause.com/food-and-drink/neat-joes-a-delicious-not-so-sloppy-version-of-the-classic-39150/
  12. https://www.manopause.com/life/10-best-gifts-for-mom-2021-mothers-day-gift-guide-38962/ This article has some great suggestions! I wasn't able to do much last year bc of covid, but I think I'm gonna get her the Dyson blowdryer. It's been on her dream wishlist for quite some time. Time to splurge.
  13. It amazes me that every year when the list of the happiest countries in the world comes out, the US is never in the top 10, and barely in the top 20! I think we work too much and don't play enough. Other countries nap in the middle of the day (Spain) and some give pregnant mothers 6 months off! I love this country but I think we need to self reflect a bit!
  14. Have you seen the movie Spanglish? I will never forget Cloris Leachman saying this to Tea Leoni (who is a real turd in the movie). "Lately your low self esteem is just good common sense." Such a zinger!
  15. I was only told AFTER my second shot had been administered that taking Advil or Alive could reduce the shot's effectiveness. Unsure why they wouldn't have told me this before going in for my appt., as I took Advil hours before my second shot had already been administered.
  16. I had frog legs in France! The French definitely have most of my bucket list foods. If I'm being honest, it does taste like chicken...
  17. Tonight I will be thankful for a takeout, fully prepped turkey dinner! My wife didn't want to cook this year so we said to hell with it! Got takeout and all the fixings from a local place.
  18. I try and stop eating by 7pm latest. Late night snacking can easily add several hundred calories to your day without even realizing!
  19. I LOVE birdwatching. I thought it was only for nerds before I started heading out on my own birdwatching adventures. It's a quiet sport that's great solo. Get out in nature and listen to the great outdoors acoustics! My other favorite is model airplanes. Yes, people still do this haha. I have an entire day slip away from me when I get into my groove sometimes and my wife has to remind me to stop and eat something!
  20. I got a Mazda CX5 last year and love it! It gets decent gas mileage and is a perfectly sized crossover.
  21. I camped at Point Magu years ago. Absolutely awesome, just past Malibu!
  22. “Try not to become a man of success, but rather become a man of value.” – Albert Einstein
  23. Heart disease has always run in my family. This is a scary thing, knowing it's a leading killer of older people. Knowing what I know about my family history, I've always been mindful of it and tried to take as good of care as I can with my health. Never smoked, always worked out, tried to eat well (with the occasional sinful fatty burger). When Covid-19 took the globe by storm earlier this year, I saw a lot of material about how it imposed more risk on the health of my heart. I've done everything I can from self-isolating, wearing a mask, socially distancing, and also being extra cautious about my health and wellness during this time. Anyone else have any concerns about this since Covid started? Great Manopod episode below talking with the Cardiac Research Foundation! https://www.manopause.com/podcast/manopod-juan-granada-ceo-of-the-cardiac-research-foundation-heart-disease-and-covid-19/
