It’s hard to face the future.  Aging and retirement seems like a distant future, however it creeps up on us.

Merrill Edge, the brokerage arm for Bank of America has a new app that will age you to put you into retirement planning mode.  I tried the app and it scared me.  I am not a botox-plastic surgery kinda girl, but maybe I should consider it for the future after seeing myself at age 87.  Ugh!

Meet the future you

The holidays are coming, the holidays are coming — and so are the goodies and drinking that can add 10 pounds to your scale in a weekend party.

But how to keep it off? Be strong and avoid the sugary, fatty foods that will just accumulate on your waist, hips, and bottom. The booze is loaded with calories as well. Buffets are always plentiful in the upcoming season of good tidings of joy.

Try to avoid anything white — sugar, flour, pasta, bread, rice — and stick with color, that is, veggies and fruits (not chocolate and cookies). Drink 8 glasses of water a day and if you must have a spiked eggnog or champagne toast, have a small glass and sip throughout the night. Moderation may keep you safe as well.

If you slip and indulge too much, do extra exercise. Hit the gym, take a class, or go out and dance the night away:

jeff hillman bballThe media was buzzing about Jeff Hillman, the New York City homeless man who resurfaced without shoes — again.  Larry DePrimo, a kind New York City policeman,  bought Hillman socks and new boots on November 14th. 
 
 But once again – Hillman was in bare feet.  He said that he hid the boots because they were expensive.  Unfortunately, the feet are suffering from the frigid weather. 
 
Reports said that Hillman is, in fact, not homeless.  He has an apartment in the New York area and his family said that he chooses this lifestyle on the streets.   
 
Hillman was not always seeking a boot hand-out.  He attended South Plainfield High School, NJ and graduated in 1976.  Hillman (#21) played on the basketball team as pictured in yearbook.  He was a master at dribbling.  
 
It is unfortunate that an individual can resort to such a sad state of life.  The New York police officer performed an admirable deed that happened to be caught by a tourist photo.   Some people think the officer was conned.  The boots may be hidden — or sold, but I am sure other kind-hearted people will give Hillman more assistance without the flash of a camera.
