Connor Cooks Pico de Gallo
7/23/2020 3:03:26 PM

I am not sure when my love for Pico de Gallo started, but I’m pretty sure it was before I can remember. As a kid, my parents would put a limit on how many chips and salsa I was allowed to eat. Or else I would eat all of it, every time. If I were stranded on a desert island and I was allowed only one thing to eat for the rest of my life it would be chips and salsa. So, the point is, salsa is life. My favorite salsa variety is Pico de Gallo. Not that I don’t love them all, but Pico stands above the rest. Fresh, bright, and just the right spice. Let me show you how I make...

Savvy Senior - Stretching Tips to Help Seniors Gain Flexibility and Reduce Pain
7/23/2020 3:01:10 PM

Dear Savvy Senior, Can you offer some good stretching tips for seniors who are staying home during the pandemic? I’ve gotten so stiff and achy in recent years that I have a hard time doing basic activities like bending over to tie my shoes. Stiff as a Board   Dear Stiff, Of all possible exercises, stretching tends to be the most neglected, yet nothing is more vital to keeping an aging body limber and injury free. As we age, our muscles naturally lose their elasticity if you’re not active, which can make common day-to-day activities like reaching...

If I had a nickel for every blunder I made…
7/23/2020 2:57:37 PM

Dr. James L. Snyder   I am not very agile when it comes to finances. Do not get me wrong, I know how to spend money; it is just that I do not know how to save money. Somewhere I lost my little piggy bank. One of my father's favorite quotes was, "A penny saved is a penny earned." It never made sense to me, but my father knew how to save money. On the other side, he was not very agile when it came to spending money especially on me. My whole life has never been focused on making money. For me, the outdoor was busier than the indoor with money. I must...

It’s not always what it seems
7/16/2020 3:49:57 PM

Dr. James L. Snyder   There are times when my bad hearing is a blessing. I'm not sure if I'm not listening or not hearing. It’s hard for me to tell. For example, the other night, right after midnight, the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and I were pretty much sound asleep. There was more sound on the other side of the bed than on mine, but that's a different story. There was this tremendous boom, several flashes of lightning, and the rooftop was bombarded with rain. It sounded like some invasion. I didn’t hear it when it happened, but my...

Savvy Senior - What happens if you die without a will?
7/16/2020 3:48:42 PM

Dear Savvy Senior, What happens to a person’s possessions if they die without a will? I’m almost 60 years old and have never gotten around to making one, but the coronavirus crisis has made it a priority. Will-less Willie   Dear Willie, The coronavirus crisis has lit a fire under many Americans when it comes to getting their affairs in older. Currently, fewer than half of American adults have prepared a will or living trust. If you die without a will, the state you reside in will determine what happens to your assets. Every state has intestacy laws...

Voting for our future
7/16/2020 3:43:36 PM

By Marian Wright Edelman FOUNDER AND PRESIDENT EMERITA   Earlier this month the Supreme Court struck yet another blow to voting rights when it blocked an order that would have made it easier for Alabama citizens to vote safely in the middle of the pandemic by easing some restrictions before the state’s July 14th primary run-off election. Alabama’s current restrictions for absentee voting require voters to submit a copy of photo identification and obtain the signatures of two adult witnesses or a notary public before returning their ballot. In June, a U.S....

Savvy Senior - Video Calling Solutions for Tech-Challenged Seniors
7/9/2020 6:55:30 PM

Dear Savvy Senior, Can you recommend some simple devices that can help tech-challenged seniors with video calls? My 80-year-old mother has been isolating herself for months now in fear of the coronavirus and I haven’t been able to see her face-to-face in quite a while. Concerned Daughter   Dear Concerned, Video chatting is a great way to stay connected and keep tabs on an elder parent when you can’t be there, but it’s even more important now during this pandemic as many isolated seniors are also suffering from chronic loneliness....

A Glory Glory Hallelujah time?!
7/9/2020 6:20:29 PM

By Marian Wright Edelman FOUNDER AND PRESIDENT EMERITA   Is our long-awaited real United States of America baby about to be born?! The one our slave ancestors, grandparents, parents and community co-parents died and struggled for—a real United States of America—with liberty and justice for all? It’s way past time to clarify which God we truly trust in our nation—the god of our money, currency and American capitalism as we know it—or the God of our Native American ancestors, enslaved ancestors, African and African-American ancestors, civil...

Savvy Senior - Can I Stop Social Security if I Go Back to Work?
7/2/2020 8:09:57 PM

Dear Savvy Senior, I lost my job last month because of the coronavirus crisis. With little savings, I’ve been thinking about starting my Social Security benefits early to help me get by. But my question is, if I find a new job can I stop my Social Security benefits and restart them at a later date so they can continue to grow? Almost 63   Dear Almost, Yes, there are actually two ways you can stop your Social Security retirement benefits (once you’ve started collecting them) and restart them at a later date, which would boost your benefits. But in order...

This is a time for prayer and action for all of our children
7/2/2020 8:09:11 PM

By Marian Wright Edelman FOUNDER AND PRESIDENT EMERITA   This is a time for prayer that our eyes, ears, and hearts may be opened for all of our children everywhere. ** A Plea That Our Eyes, Ears, and Hearts May Be Opened Open our eyes that we may see the need all around us. Open our ears that we may hear the cries of Your children for food and shelter and relief from sickness and danger. Open our minds that we may understand and live Your word and will in our lives.
