    A tongue-in-cheek [I hope] look at the embarrassment of being middle aged!

    The new insult: calling someone middle aged. Even — or especially — if they are - The Boston Globe

    ShinyTop I know what is right or wrong!

    Growing older is better than not.

    I've been both a lifetime athlete and also a person that has also regularly engaged in physically active activities my entire life. In that context I agree with a statement that goes something like this:

    The decade of your forties is the senior decade of your youth. The decade of the fifties is the youth decade of your senior years.
